Was very happy to have the opportunity to try this dubbel. Had read much about it and jumped at the opportunity.
Poured into a chalice. Was that chocolate or malt teasing my nose? Perhaps a combination of both. Beautiful color, rich red, very little head.
But it was the drinkable statue of this beer that put the smile on my face. Starts with a whiff of malt on the tongue, which quickly teases with alcohol then finishes with a touch of bitterness. Heavenly.
If I have any caution with this beer, it is to be concerned with what food you pair it with. It can be overwhelmed by strong, spicy food to the point where you might miss the complexities of this beer. Take my advice and order simply. Or better yet, enjoy this beer with an open chalice, allowing the aroma to breathe. Take it slow and enjoy it on its own. You'll be glad you did.
