A solid, dark, chocolate-banana dubbel that's very drinkable but, nevertheless, not expressly exciting. A sharp, bitter thickness appends the expected deep-brown sweetness, but beyond some banana esters there isn't a lot going o with the flavors of this beer. And yet: it's damn solid. Indeed, for a dubbel, it's downright fairly sessionable—particularly since its mouthfeel isn't too sticky (for its genre). All in all: not incredible, but credibly constructed to a decent number of steps above tolerable.

Nutty bordering on roasty with the typical dark fruit character. Touch of hop bitterness.

Appearance: Translucent dark rich brown with amber highlights and a healthy fluffy head.
Smell: Yeast and raisins.
Taste: Dark fruits and yeast dominate with just a hint of bitters on the back end with an aftertaste of almonds.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
I have had better and the alcohol is a bit more present than I would like but this is a solid and well brewed beer.
