Beer pours a deep mahogany with a 1 finger head that dissipates quickly. Smell of dark, sweet malt, dark fruit and a subtle molasses/dark sugar sweetness. Taste is of dark fruit with subtle candi sugar sweetness and balanced with sweet malt. Carbonation was a bit light so the mouth feel wasn't as good as it has been in the past with this serving; I blame this on the tap. Since I have had it before and never experienced this I cannot dock for a subpar mouth feel.
A good Dubbel to be sure, one of my favorites, especially at $6 for 14oz. A pretty good deal.

4.1/5 rDev +2%

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.
