12oz bottle poured into a Chimay goblet. Pours out a deep ruby-tinted brown with a half-inch of solid tannish head. Nose is gorgeous, a sweet, fruity scents with a full malt aroma that reminds me of unboiled wort. Flavor is more of the same: rich dark malt (unusually malty compared to most dubbels), caramalized fruit (raisins, plums) along with lightly spicy, phenolic notes. The finish is somewhat roasty, balancing things out nicely. Full, even bodied, with a neutral texture.

Serving type-bottle poured into tulip snifter.

A-Dark brew with red hues. Tan head with tiny defined bubbles.

S-Bready yeast, malty, spicy, faint cherries.

T-Big bite at the start from the carbonation. Caramel sweetness follows with bready undertones to the complex and intriguing malt. Brown sugar and toffee are here too. There is definitely a warming sensation on the way down from the alcohal. Simply and great balance.

M-Clean and crisp with a certain airy quality to it. Champagne-like carbonation that dances on the tongue.

D-Very drinkable even for non-belgium lovers. Smooth feel with complex flavors. Maybe my favorite dubbel yet.
