look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

11.2oz bottle poured into my Duvel tulip glass.

Served close to room temp.

Appearance is good. Dark brick color. Decent head materializes. Carbonation makes itself evident.

Smell is good. Very earthy/herbal aroma. Belgian spices and semi-sweet dark fruits.

Taste is excellent. Identical to the smell but sweeter although non-cloying. Flavor isn't huge but perfect for the style. One of the best Dubbels i've tasted.

Mouthfeel is exceptional. Velvety smooth on the palate. The beer coates the tongue like a warm comfortable blanket on a cold winter evening. Carbonation is great and not overly done.

Drinkability is off the charts. I can sip this stuff all night if i had to.

Overall: One of the best dubbels i've had and a staple in my fridge.

11.2 oz bottle dated 4/11/15, poured in a chalice. Pours a dark brown in color. Head didn't retain for very long. Carbonation is on the above average side. The smell first struck me as cinnamon, perhaps raisins as well. Taste reminds me of a Cherry Coke with a very full body, creamy and malty. Very interesting taste for a beer. The sweetness really lingers in the aftertaste, and it is very pleasant. I really enjoyed this beer.

Dark mahogany red, off-white tan head sits on top throughout. Thick and smooth lacing, with good clarity.

Juicy, ripe red apples with a perfumy candied coating. Some faint alcoholic vapors, but very inviting.

Light, leafy prunes, blackberries, more of that candied apple edge. Some sweet caramelly malt. Yeast is downtempo and hops are quite delicate and match up well with the soft Belgian flavour.

Medium to full bodied, incredibly smooth, creamy and somewhat sticky. Carbonation is light, but there.

Ahhh so delicious. A satisfying and complex favourite, the dubbel of choice. Pairs well with a beef and vegetable stew, but great on it's own as it is delicate.
