4.38/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A-pours a dark ruby with three fingers worth of a rocky creamy head

S-rich malt, light molasses, caramel, and a decent amount of fruits like bananas and plums

T-taste matches the smell and exceeds it. Rich malt gives a good breadlike backbone, caramel and toffee, some dark fruit and raisins

M-medium body, very good amount of carbonation, leaves a bit of a raisin taste in the mouth

Overall an amazing beer. A truly great dubbel.

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.
