A: Cloudy ruddy brown with an initial big foamy head, quickly fading to a small skim of bubbles. Not much lacing.

S: Sugar, strong over-ripe dark fruits, apples, some pungency. Rich and bittersweet.

T/M: A mix of sugary sweetness and pungent, bitter fruits. Pronounced yeasty finish, very heavy and thick.

O: A fine Belgian dubbel, strong and rich, rather bitter. Not as good as the 8 or 10, but still pretty tasty.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass

L: murky brown with tan head, perhaps a bit dark tan. very different looking -- neither amber nor gold in any way. head starts off about an inch or so, laces well, not in any extraordinary way.

S: slight medicinal at first, then raisins (in a good way, if you hate raisins like me); weak malt but also in a good way; slight floral whiff and about halfway down, I smell bread. yeasty?

T: very crisp and dry. excellent malt up front with a bit of back bit from the hops ... or am I way off? I swear I get a little different taste with each sip, and all of it is good -- lots of character. picking up bread/yeasty taste halfway down. possible licorice? for me, it tastes just a bit darker than Duvel, if that makes any sense.

F: perfect. just a hair heavier than medium-bodied. LOTS of carbonation.

O: hard not to say it's as good as it gets. the balance is impeccable because no one taste overrides the others -- and it never seems too anything ... not too malty, not too hoppy, not too sweet.

At 7.5% ABV and almost 50 cents an ounce, it's a little too much to use for a session beer (duh!), but I bet a bomber of this would make for a damn good hour or more -- if you could show the patience to savor it. Honestly, I'm sure I'm overrating it, but it's awfully damn good.
