4.08/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pleasant looking caramel color with dark amber highlights. There is an abundance of fluffy, open head that reduces to a moderate amount of lacing.
Smell: Dark fruits and caramel are prevalent on the nose. Also a hint of pepper.
Taste: Nice maltiness, dark fruits and a hint of booze up front, followed by a bit of pepper at the end due to the carbonation. No hops to speak of at any point.
Mouthfeel: Great full mouthfeell with very nice, fine carbonation. Not an overabundance of carbonation to make it fizzy, but just right.
Drinkability: I understand where the hype comes from with this beer. Very nice dubbel style that hides it's ABV effectively.
Serving type: bottle
