Serving type and glass: 11.2 oz bottle poured into a chalice.

A: Pours brown, almost crimson, with a cram colored head that retains quite well. Lacing is excellent.

S: Smell is very malt forward, with caramel, some spice, and dried fruits. Hops are more prominent in this brew than other Dubbels.

T: Slightly fruity taste with spice, toasted bread, and toffee. Candi sugar is also present. The finish is dry and very clean, with floral, spicy hop tones.

M: A medium bodied brew, but ever so slightly thin for this style. Flavors are intense, and the finish is long.

D: A very good Dubbel. Rich in flavor, yet has the body to make it very palatable.

Brown with garnet highlights and a huge matrix of large, tan bubbles that eventually recede to a tight, creamy, pancake-like cap.

Westmalle Dubbel is reminiscent of under-ripe bananas dipped in caramel and toffee and then lightly dusted with cocoa powder, cinnamon, and clove. Earthy bitterness lingers on into the finish more than anticipated, which along with the ultra-dry finish, makes this Dubbel quite different from the American interpretations.

All in all a delightful Trappist ale.

Poured into a goblet.

A - Pours a beautiful full brown color with a light tan head. Head is very dense and retains very well.

S - Bread hints are quickly appreciated, followed by some mild alcoholic esters. Sourdough hints and some yeasty smells are definitely present.

T & M - Oily and creamy mouthfeel. Some nice bready hints immediately com up with nice malt sweetness, caramel hints are definitely present. Some yeast flavors are also tangled in there with the sweetness balancing it out. Some banana sweetness is also present.

D - Very refreshing and delicious. good co2.
