4.19/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: A nice dark amber, cloudy but by no means to dark to see through. Also, good initial head consisting of large bubbles, and some short lived lacing.
Smell: A very powerful malty presence, consisting of some dark fruits and some big phenolic yeast notes. Pilsner malt in the back, maybe a touch of hops.
Taste: Right up front carbonation opens the palate, a crisp wave of dark fruit, plum and date, hits the tongue and a pilsner malt character finishes the sip off. Spicy yeast with some phenolic fruit.
Mouthfeel: The heavy carbonation really helps open up your taste buds, and disappears after a short time of sitting in your mouth.
Overall: A great dubbel the balance is stellar, love the pilsner malt finish. Overall a fantastically flavorful and drinkable beer.
Serving type: bottle
