look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
11.2oz bottle into my New Belgium Globe.
A: Prune/dark brown and opaque, with a huge light tan head that fades to a consistent finger of creamy lace.
S: Big fruitiness, red apples, grapes and grape juice, chalky effervescent Belgian yeast, faint cherry and red wine notes. Malty sweet undertones with moderate spiciness.
T: More spiciness emerges in the flavors, and dark fruits seem to dominate more than that apple character; I get prune and raisin. Faint alcohol bitterness on the finish. Sweeter dark malt presence, Belgian candy sugar and hints of caramel all play a supportive role.
MF: Creamy medium mouthfeel, very nice. Effervescent carbonation moves the body along.
O: Really nice dubbel, probably the best I've ever had of this style. Better than the Chimay IMO.
