I picked this up at Whole Foods this evening as I was looking for something new and this was suggested to me as most like the dubbel-style. I was thinking of my current favorite of this style, the Westmalle Dubbel, which needs no introduction to the BA.
I poured the tall black bottle into my 50cl glass after chilling it for a 1/2 hour and a great spongy head appeared and settled down easily. The first impression I got from the smell was that of a famous Irish ale with coffee and chocolate nuances eminating from the heavy glass.
My first taste was simply duplicating what I had inhaled, but there was a thin body of burnt malts and funky raisins. Okay, so I kept drinking it to gather something else from it. After the ale warmed up, it seemed a little better in taste, but I thought that I might return another time to this ale, which is so highly thought of by the BA.
