Bottle poured into a maredsous challice.

Appearance is a nice brown with a frothy white head.

Smell is sweet. Caramel with subtle plum. Very nice.

Taste is really well balanced. Sweet malts blend perfectly with the estery fruit. This beer has great character. I can easily drink this, and this is coming from a man that admittedly isn't a fan of most belgian beers.

Medium bodied that goes down easy. Good beer to drink.

Overall a great beer. Highly recommeded.

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.
