4.78/5 rDev +18.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a goblet from an incredibly awesome 11.2 oz bottle.
4.5 A: Opaque amber brown color. Head is frothy as hell and retains well and leaves tons of off white lacing. Beautiful beer.
4.5 S: Lovely dark fruits, especially plum, some raisin, some tobacco to cap it off.
5.0 T: All the crap in the nose is in the taste too, though tobacco takes a back seat. Then there is a wave of flavors that result from the yeast. Spiciness with lots of pepper hitting you hard. A little medicinal, but not in a bad way. Alcohol shows up to the party too, but isn't overwhelming. This beer is incredibly complex and I'm not sure I could find a better dubbel.
5.0 M: Heavy Medium body. Perfectly smooth and spritzy at the same time.
4.5 D: This is one of the least boring beers out there. You need to sip it though to appreciate it, but I must say I would mind sipping the hell out of a 4-pack.

A: Beautiful chestnut body and head, rocky, lasting, lacing. Yes it matters!
S: Liquor like, Cointreau, is the first impression, along with lots of grass, then blend of dark malts with plenty of fruit notes: apple, plum, figs, cherry. Want more of it, still subtle as it warms.
T: Follows the smell, again with the after-dinner drink quality. In this case, savored on the ferry home. Flavorful, malty dark caramel, spice, brown sugar, cocoa, latte, and stout. Sweet, fruit liqueurs, followed by drying, slight bitterness, into a crisp, roasty finish. COMPLEX!
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus w moderate carbonation.
O: Must try. Unusual grassy and liqueur like Belgian. Recommended.
