I believe this is actually a dubbel, but each person has their own opinion regarding this.
A: Pours a murky dark plum color. Almost a reddish brown with a big cream colored two finger head. Excellent fluffy retention with thick coating lacing down the glass. Amazing looking lace.
S: Spicy phenols. Figs, cherries, and other dark fruit. Slight sweetness covers the fruit notes. Theres a soft coating feeling to the aromas--almost like theres a soft blanket that rests over the nose--wonderful aromas.
T/M: Spicy notes right from the start. Figs, cherries, and sweet plums are all laced with the spicy notes. Wheaty thickness on the palate. Slightly sweet fruit notes take on the wheatyness. Thicker body with an excellently smooth coating feeling on the palate. Big on the palate with a above average abv that is noticeable, to a degree, in the spicyness, but gets couched in the wheat notes as well.
D: A very good example of a belgian strong dark ale...err...dubbel from Unirbroue. They seem to cater to flavor rather than style, which I enjoy. None of their beers can be put into a specific category as they transcend categories. Another very tasty offering from our friends to the north.
