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.

330 ml bottle into chalice, best before 8/2014. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, cherry, fig, caramel, molasses, toast, brown bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, cherry, caramel, toast, brown bread, molasses, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness/tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of big raisin, plum, fig, cherry, caramel, molasses, toast, brown bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent dubbel style. All around nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
