look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Drank on 3/15/2012
Poured from bottle into Chimay sniffer.

Appearance: An amber brown color, quarter inch head, no lacing. Center base carbonation leaves a continuous head in the center of the glass.

Smell: Clear light smell of sugar, plum, and raisins.

Mouthfeel: Cool, frothy, and excellent carbonation. Smooth on the palate.

Taste: Good, no big alcohol taste like the triple. Very strong raisin and sweet sugar aftertaste.

Overall: Excellent dark belgian dubel. Will return.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Dated 27/05/12 and poured into a chalice.
Finger of off light brown head and a deep deep reddish brown body.
Alcohol, sweet caramel, and dark fruit aromas.
Lots of the sweetness and dark fruits in the taste. Bitter and spicy.
Medium bodied with prickly carbonation.
The 33cl bottle is not big enough. I want to drink this all night.

Pours a cloudy rich brown with a red tinge. Great foamy tan head with good retention. Rich aroma with emphasis on the malt. Sweet caramel malt with some darker roasts and a fruity ester. Taste is the highlight here, orgy comes to mind. Rich caramel and darker malt, chocolate and nutty. Fruity esters also play a big role, date and raisin, entertaining to the last drop. Mouthfeel is very smooth, hint of alcohol. Overall a fantastic beer. Make sure you serve this at the right temp and you won't be disappointed.
