3.53/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This pours a cloudy very dark amber colour with a generous tightly packed off white head.

Aroma of sweet Malteser like malts. A touch medicinal. Maybe dried fruit.

Very nice malt profile on the palate. Not too sweet. Lots more dried fruit tastes. A slight bitterness at the back.

Full mouthfeel. High carbonation but it works well.

This is a well made beer but like many dubbels and triples it does little for me.

Serving type: bottle
