A: Poured a burgundy color with purple hightlightsn hues displaying a small dirty white cap, fair amount of bubbles and light lacing

S: The nose is heavy handed on Belgian candy sugar, light dash of spice and hints of dark fruits

T: Upfront I garner a big Belgian candy sugar and syrupy sweetness that seems to be the ringleader in the flavor. There were some light hints of spice, some light dark fruits and a touch, slight touch of chocolate. FInish is sweet, slicl and a little booze sting hits you

M: Medium bodied, syrupy, well carbonated

O: Overall, a little to sweet, not as creamy as I like and heavyhanded on the candy

Poured from a one quart growler into a Rochefort goblet. From notes. Reviewed 20 August 2011.

A: Wispy lace fades leaving only intricate patterns slowly unfurling on the surface. Glowing auburn in the light. Cloudy-clear and beautiful, though admittedly the glassware probably contributes.

S: Spicy Belgian yeast. Light fruit. Subdued but pleasant.

T: Meh. Fruit. Yeast. Mild carbonation. Disappointing, but serviceable. Points for effort, I suppose. Dry and slightly spicy on the endtaste, even if the main body is weak and thin.

O: The sometimes-spiciness is nice, but the fruit is a bit too sour and the flavours are a bit too subdued. Not recommended, but worth a try.

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.
