look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours a dark reddish-brown with a two-finger foamy off-white head. The head dissapates quickly leaving light sticky lacing.

S - Aroma is weak. Light dark fruits and Belgian yeast.

T - The taste starts with sweet bready malts. There is a nice amount of red grapes and plums mid-palate. Finish has a nice mild tartness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very creamy smooth mouthfeel.

O - Very tasty and very drinkable. Overall a solid Dubbel.
