Ruby brown colour, two fingers of off white head with some lace. Smell is incredibly spicy, cinnamon and nutmeg, orange liquor, yeasty with a bit of orange juice like points, a bit odd but not off putting. Taste is a little better, spicy and malty, orange, brown sugar, raisin and dark bread are all present throughout, medium carbonation, medium body, pretty good feel. Overall this is OK, the serving size is a bit much but I finished the bottle over the course of an hour or so, something I am glad to have tried but nothing I will actively seek out.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Amber with just a tinge of red and dusty clarity. Small off white head of half a finger with minimal retention and flakes of lacing.

Malt forward molasses and toffee not too syrupy or cloying. Rich candied dates and plum with a bready pie crust and Belgian yeast adds a tinge of powder and attic must.

The same as the nose, fairly malty without being overly sweet. Tightly wound caramel and brown sugar, not a hint of graininess. Dried red fruit, cherries and plums with a spice bill including coriander and a steely powdery twinge. Lingering phenols.

Medium carbonation and a slightly hefty body, the malt sticks to the palate like glue. Alcohol is warming and occasionally rears up.

As an American Dubbel this is pretty good, a tasty and not cloying malt bill with enough dark fruit esters to keep things lively. Not something that can compete with a Trappist brew but my Belgian itch has been stated.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

750ml bottle poured into a shaker pint.

A: Mahogany body with an off-white head. Minimal lacing with excellent head retention.

S: Nose is dominated by dark fruit.

T: Heavy carmel malt, and dark fruit flavors.

M: Malty body with very low carbonation.

O: Its decent, but not for the price. I would drink again if offered or If I saw it on sale.
