11.2 oz bottle dated 4/11/15, poured in a chalice. Pours a dark brown in color. Head didn't retain for very long. Carbonation is on the above average side. The smell first struck me as cinnamon, perhaps raisins as well. Taste reminds me of a Cherry Coke with a very full body, creamy and malty. Very interesting taste for a beer. The sweetness really lingers in the aftertaste, and it is very pleasant. I really enjoyed this beer.

Poured from a bottle into Westmalle chalice….nice compact bubbles head one finger initially, down to constant 2mm layer of super small creamy bubbles. excellent carbonation, Very brown almost cola like color
Aroma is very mild, I sensed some dark fruit (prune/raisin with a hint of cherry. Malty aroma in background
Taste was among the best I've had…cherry up front, almost sweet malty mid, finishing with just a slight alcohol warmth. very true to the Dubbel style.
Mouthfeel is lively carbonation with a rich full finish, some dryness, no discernible hoppinnes , very smooth and mellow. Pleasant to drink.
Overall this is an outstanding example. Will definitely look for and drink again. A great bottle conditioned belgian ale, that imports well.
