3.95/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from 750 ml bottle into CBS snifter. Servered slightly chilled.

A) A nice brown brew with a huge 3 finger beige head reaching the top of the snifter. Decent retention... No lacing noted...

S) Woody and spicey. There is a little bit of orange peel and definitely the darker fruits such as plum. It has a bread/yeast aroma as well.

T) Pretty near the nose, nice sweetness with the dark fruits, woody, perhaps a little pipe tobacco. There was some floral hops on the backend. The alcohol sneaks up on you with some definite warmth as you move along.

M) Near full bodied, felt pretty thick. The carbonation was moderate and the feel was smooth for the most part. The finish was a little dry.

O) I sipped on this one for about 2 hours. It was pretty enjoyable, and I felt the aroma and taste improved with warmth. The alcohol was pretty well hidden for a beer at nearly 9% ABV. A pretty good dubbel... Glad to recommend...

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

Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry fruits with quite a bit of residual sugar and some Belgian biscuit malt notes. Taste is dominated by light dry fruits notes with some Belgian cookie malt and quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad overall but lacking complexities for the style.

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

A creamy beige head leaving lacings forms over a brown to reddish body. Aroma is caramel and light roasted malts . A touch of spices too. The flavor is mostly sweet (dried fruits and chocolate) and has a light bitterness. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Not my type of beer, but a decent one for the style.
