4.05/5 rDev +0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: very deep ruby colour. Clear despite the dark hues. The head is deep tan, moderate in size and kind of foamy. It may not persist for a long time but leaves a lot of lacings.
Aroma: a mix of sweet malts, caramel, spices and red port.
Taste: dark sweet malts, molasses, spices, fruits and herbal hops.
Mouthfeel: unctuous, average to low carbonation, high alcoholic strength and a rich full body.
Finish: goes on forever. It starts very sweet but quickly turns to a more bitter-spiced presence.
Overall: a very complex and wonderful Dubbel. Well disguised strong beer (beware!). Very well balanced with a great body and a strong personality. A must have.

330ml Bottle from The Cave, Glasgow (£2.80):
Caramel brown to mahogany & a 1cm, foamy white head with great retention & a creamy texture that leaves good lacing too.
Sweet with a lot of sugar & over-ripe fruits, some figs, cherries & plum too. Lots of sweetness & dark fruits to this one along with a boozy, alcohol laced aroma. Some caramel and a great balance on the nose.
Very sweet & sugary with figs, dates & cherries plus lots of sugar coming from all of these. A definite alcohol taste to this one is areas and some caramel too that adds to the sweetness and some malts too.
Smooth & incredibly sweet with a lot of carbonation & some alcohol coming through. Medium bordering on light bodied in places with a slightly dry finish.
Started great with the look & the smell of the beer impressing in particular, sadly the taste couldn't match the start with the sweetness overpowering the taste in places & the beer seeming a little bland occasionally. It is definitely up there with some of the best looking beers I've had but the taste let it down sadly.
