4.18/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Nearly flawless apperance, this lacing on the glass was handed down from the gods. The tawny russet hue is dusted with a bit of haze and shimmers in the light.

Smell: Hint of spice, bread crust, estery alcohol and a smidge of dark fruit show a complex yet inviting aroma.

Taste: Some phenols upfront with a pinch of butteriness, dry bread crust and carob are from the malts. Intricate yeast flavours of nuts with some leftover phenols, light esters and faint fruit round out the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light and deceiving with a nicely lined smoothness within the semi-dry palate.

Drinkability & Notes: This beer is too highly seated to be all alone, some soft cheeses and crackers are an excellent union to take the taste buds to a higher level.

3.8/5  rDev -8.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Murky brown reddish color with a thick beige head with great retention.
Relatively mild aroma of hay, herbal and earthy hops, wood and lots of nutmeg.
Similarly, flavor with notes of hay, lots of spices, mint, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, nuts, cherries, wood, earthy hops, cocoa, Port Wine and toasted malts. Dry aftertaste with medium bitterness.
Medium to full body with somewhat effervescent carbonation. Alcohol of 7.5% abv is felt, but it does not bother.
A quite complex Dubbel with lots of spices, perceivable booze, toasty and woody. Not so fruity, nor sweet. It has a character of its own, though I did preferred their other brews.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Look-Pours a solid brown color. Lighter on the top and darker on the bottom. A 2-3 inch head dissipates into a thin off white lace that is persistent throughout. Slightly hazy.
Smell-Aroma consists of a malty and maple syrup sweetness. Not an overpowering aroma but just enough to keep you enjoying the smell.
Feel- deceptively light taste for a dark beer in that it almost feels like a lighter bodied beer upon first tasting. Lots of carbonation.
Taste- the carbonation makes it initially difficult for me to decipher the individual flavors. However, as the carbonation settles and as you get to the darker bottom of the glass, the malty flavors come out prominently. It is a malty flavor that is not as sweet as other malty beers. I detect hints of coffee and dark bread.
Overall- a quality Belgian style I will continue to drink.
