3.09/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: It has a very dark brown color to it. It has a nice beige head that dies down moderately fast and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian yeast, caramel, candi sugar, roasted coffee beans and some faint dark fruit.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some yeast, caramel, sweet candi sugar, roasted malts/coffee and a faint fruitiness. Lacking some flavor, feels light for a Dubbel.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a somewhat light overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.

Serving type: bottle

3.6/5  rDev +19.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma consists of medium sweet Belgian-style malt with light residual sugar notes and some anise. Taste is also dominated by grainy Belgian-style malt with some candi sugar with some star anise notes. Body is slightly fuller then average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed but lacking a bit of complexity and dry fruits notes.

2.33/5  rDev -22.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A:
Pours an inky black with tinges or muddy brown if you hold it to the light. Has a nice head that is creamy and tan with teensy bubbles. Good retention; good lacing

S:
Succulent ripe berries, smoked meat, pepper, yeast and bubblegum. It is all pretty unified and spicy but there is a very fruity, chalky, yeasty backbone underneath it all.

T:
Dirty burnt nuts. It is really strong. Bitter, stanky, dusty and musty. Nutty throughout with some dark fruit up front and a gradual bittering and chalkening towards the end. Pretty intense.

M:
Kind of flimsy carbonation, not creamy. Chalky, dry and dirty. Lingering aftertaste/mouth feeling. Bad.

O:
Not good. Tastes like porters I have had (not good ones, either). I bought it dubiously because I think that the whole alphabet thing is not only gimmicky but that it likely fails on a lot of occasions (i.e. 20+ different styles is 20+ chances to not make an unfamiliar style as well as you otherwise could). Worst "dubbel" I have ever had. Would not get again.
