4.33/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: rich, deep hazy brown; tawny around the edges with two fingers of tan head which seem to dissipate rather rapidly. A good-lookin' beer, to be sure.

Smell: rich dubbel aromas of figs, cherries, plums and dates. There's also a mustiness to the aroma which I must say I rather like.

Taste: boom! There's a reason I went out to buy Belgians this evening. Sweet, lustrous malt flavor with hints of the aromas listed above, but nothing is overpowering. There's also a little bit of chocolate in there which is working for me. Capital.

Mouthfeel: silky and creamy in texture. Body is medium in density but the overall feel is quite nice.

Drinkability: I'm finding myself liking dubbels more and more. This one is extremely quaffable and I might get myself into trouble tonight.

Looking on the back, I see two dates: 9/19/2007 and 9/19/2009. I'm guessing that these are the bottled-on and best-by dates? Not sure, but if that's the case then we're getting up on 10 months past its best date. It's still a damn good beer, though!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

330 ml bottle. Pours dark amber with tall, long-lasting, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, caramel and dark fruits. Body is full and smooth. Spicy yeast, caramel malt, bread crust, plums, raisins, brown sugar fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy, sweet and complex. Delicious brew.
