Very nice looking beer. Nice voluminous head when swirled. Doesn't leave much lacing. Nice bright mahogany color. Definately some big chunks of yeast from a not too careful pour.
Very nice nose. Nice raisin notes. Special B malt? Maybe get some candy sugar in there too. Get some subdued fruitiness. Otherwise very clean. No phenolics or higher alcohols or other spiceyness.
Good clean flavor, nothing special. Get some nice dark candy sugar and caramel malt like flavors. The finish is too clean. I want a Dubbel to linger for a second. My perception of this beer is that its a bit too dry. Actually has a harsh finish. Not very nice about halfway through.
Nice mouthfeel. Very spritzy...little too spritzy for the viscosity of the beer, it could be a bit thicker and sweeter...then the high carbonation would be ideal I think.
Doesn't really have enough to keep me interested and this harshness in the finish is discouraging.

4.25/5 rDev +1.9%

Dark brown appearance. Good head and lacing.
Aroma is of raisins, plums, fruitcake and syrup.
The taste is sweet with a complex mix of cherry cola, black grapes and treacle. There is a slight medicinal flavour here... in a good way. There's also a hint of spice in the finish.
The mouthfeel is superb. Very carbonated and palate cleansing making it easy to drink this beer.
Overall this is a very tasty and enjoyable Belgian beer that is rich and complex with a moderately high alcohol content. Very good drinking to be had here.
My mark out of a hundred would be 90.
