Pours a dark, almost burgundy, with impressive head. Thick and detailed lace, too. Very nice. I get some sediment, as well, but no points lost for that.

Nose is fruity and yeasty, with hints of sour berries. Quite appealing.

Taste is fruity and yeasty (dark fruit, berries), and even a tad sour. A little funky and musty, too. Superb, and wish these were more widely available and a little more inexpensive. As it is, a treat!

11.2oz bottle served in a goblet.

L - very dark brown with a creamy off-white head that had very good retention.

S - Belgian yeast, dark fruit and earthy aromas.

T - dates, raisins and fig sweetness is balanced with yeasty dryness and a champagne-like finish.

F - medium bodied with lively carbonation create a very good mouthfeel, easy drinking and refreshing.

O- a good example of the style.

3.9/5  rDev -6.5%

A - Pours a nice dark ruby red, thumb of soapy beige head with solid retention and sporadic sheeting lacing.

S - Rich caramel, slightly nutty, raisins and dark fruit, red wine and toffee.

T - Caramel and toffee off the top, red wine and raisins, fruity yeast, though can come across slightly acidic and bitter. Some leafy hop notes come through on the finish and linger alongside a hint of abv heat and sweetness.

M - The bitterness and acidic notes can be a bit of a turnoff, and its a bit prickly going down, thus not the smoothest dubbel I've had.

O - A tasty dubbel, but not my favourite. Maybe this one was a bit over-ripe, but certainly a complex flavour profile. Any fan of the style would not be disappointed by this brew, but comparatively, I've had better.
