Bottle purchased and drank at Victoire in Rochester, NY.
Pours a medium dark brown, with a quarter inch head, and not much lacing. There is a ton of floating sediment.
Smells like toasted bread, some rye, some brown sugar, caramel, and spicing.
The taste is similar. Very bready malt flavor, a bit of spiciness reminiscent of rye or black pepper, some caramel, and brown sugar. This is much less sweeter and full bodied than I expected, honestly.
Slightly thinner body than I'm used to with dubbels, a tiny bit watery. I'm really surprised to report that, honestly. Crisp, smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation.
This was good, but my expectations for it were a little high, unfortunately.

Pours a rusty brown colour with a very fine grained head. Not much lacing, but very nice looking. The smell is so incredibly clean. I get notes of grass, cherry, bread and a hint of citrus. The taste is very refined. Quite complex, with a noticeable level of alcohol and lots of malts balanced out very well with a mildly bitter finish. The mouthfeel is relatively dry, with very frothy carbonation. My goodness. This beer is wonderful.

A-Hazy dark brown with a large tan head that gives you a good lace
S-Spices light pepper, banana sweetness, roasted malts and caramel
T-sweet roasted caramel at first with a spice background that gives you a nice hop bitterness in the aftertaste, then finishes with a warming and great balance of all the flavors
M- full carbonation
O-The balance makes this one of the best I have had this year, I always enjoy dubbels
