This finely, abbey produced Belgian Dubbel will puts some hair on your chest, that is for sure. It pours dark brown, with a large dark tan head that slowly dissipates (slower than usual). It has a strong aroma of caramel and fruit, which goes along with the similar taste. it leaves a sweet after taste, has an edge because of the ingredients alcohol content, and is very filling.

Widely available in the United States...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Dark brown colour with loads of head. Very little lacing and head retention is average.

S - Strong sweet chocolate and caramel with roated malt. Touches of vanilla and licorice as well.

T - Definitely a dubbel. Mild phenolic hit. Sweet at first but fading nicely - only the most slight bitter aftertaste. Bit of a burnt caramel/brown sugar feel. This one grows on you slowly as you drink....

M - Basically smooth but with a strong sense of carbonation - fizzes all the way down.

D - As I mentioned above this one seems to improve as you drink (maybe it's the mix of sediment into the beer). Either way I want more.
