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.
