3.45/5  rDev -17.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

It starts with a highly carbonated head that settles to a ring of foam fairly quickly. The nose is of dark malts, raisins and sour alcohol notes. Taste-wise there is roasted malts, raisins, nuttiness and plenty of carbonation. The latter of which tingles the tip of the tongue and amplifies the dryness of this drink. Mouth-feel is an odd combination of creaminess and wateriness at different stages.

Westmalle's dubbel goes down fast though for a such a strong beer. And in it's native glass, finishing a few in a sitting is not out of the question.

4.51/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark reddish brown with a thick head that falls but leaves a thin head throughout the glass.

Smells of raisins, fruity and floral.

Taste is raisins, light rum and a crisp finish.

Lots of carbonation and a crisp finish, thin body makes this pretty drinkable despite the 7% abv.

Overall, first Trappist dubbel and a very good one!

4.63/5  rDev +11%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Murky dark mahogany in color.

Aroma of rum soaked oak, sweet fig, toast, candied raisin, brown sugar.

Rum raisin, brown sugar, slight metallic mineral water, toffee on the palate.

Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation, right on for this style and the flavor profiles this beer boasts.

World class Belgian Dubbel, simple as that.
