Poured from 11.2 oz bottle into St Bernardus chalice.
Appears cola-ish with a deep brownish amberish color. Thick head, roughly a finger and a 1/2. Appears to have some moderate carbonation. Light lacing.
Really rich malt dominates the aroma. Very bready with a heavy dose of those dark fruits. Very earthy as well. Richest aroma from a dubbel that I've had.
Taste matches the aroma very well, but more earthiness comes through and a toasty but sweet maltiness that is very rich. Some chocolate comes through as well. On the finish there is a nice dose of dark fruits, alcohol, signature belgian spiciness and bread. Very well balanced.
Medium carbonation with a medium body. Will probably enjoy this beer over the next hour or so, event though it is pretty drinkable.
A very nicely balanced beer. I could see myself enjoying this again for maybe a special occasion. Without a doubt, the best dubbel I've drank to date. The rich maltiness and balance absolutely blow other dubbels out of the water.
