330 ml short bottle poured into a snifter. A light brown amber hue with a moderate amount of beige honeycomb-like head. Aroma is spicy and sweet, lightly roasted, with root beer or sarsaparilla, gingerbread, light molasses, and candy apple notes discernible. Palate delivers some chocolate and coffee to complement these sweet and spicy elements, a rather bitter yet smooth and rich dubbel, with more body than most Trappist examples (which swing toward the more attenuated) and a pleasant molasses-like or puffed wheat square note in the roasty finish. A sour fruitiness lurks in the background. I appreciate the richer flavors here.

330ml short Belgian bottle. Chalice glass. Wood & barrel aromas as cap is removed. Brownish dark amber color. Beige foam & close crown showing fairly good retention. Toasted & brown sugar aromas, hints of chocolate, cocoa, herbs & spices to the nose. Malty & crispy upfront rounded by herbal notes. Medium body. Moderately high carbonation. Dense texture & kind alcoholic heat. Slight fruity bitterness, woody hues & dried nuts in the middle. Sweet/bitter finish. Dark fruit & subtle notes of raisin on the aftertaste.
