Maryland

4.35/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured bottle into Chimay glass

A-Pours a copper brown color, typical dubbel but slightly less darker, with average, quite creamy head. Great lacing.

S-Very strong and pungent aroma that is malty, sweet, nutty and spicy smell.

T-Taste is actually much more delicate with malts, nuts, cake, caramel and a touch of alcohol.

M-Mouthfeel is well balanced, with perfect sweetnes and that small hint of hops; nice medium/low carbonation!

O-Overall it's the standard that has been set for dubbel.
