Poured into my chimay chalice.Pours a brownish ruby color with a light brown thick fluffy heading. Leaves some lacing until the last sip.
Smell is heavily toasted with an aroma of raisin. Some other darker fruits come into play and sums thing's up.
Taste is a bit different then anticipated from the aroma. Heavy toasted and caramel malts hit you a mile a minute. A touch chocolate that finishes fruity and dry. Slight pepperiness on the tongue as well.
Mouth is rich and medium to full bodied.Fantastic carbonation that bubbles up immediately in the mouth.
Drink is good. I was blown away by this beverage and I think one of the very best Dubbel's I've had yet.

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.
