750 ml bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours moderately cloudy deep ruby red color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, plum, fig, pear, apple, grape, clove, pepper, toast, brown sugar, light chocolate, brown bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity of yeast notes with a fair amount of malt presence; and good strength. A bit too fruity on the nose. Taste of caramel, plum, fig, pear, apple, toast, brown sugar, clove, herbal, light chocolate, brown bread, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of dark and light fruits, caramel, toast, brown sugar, light chocolate, brown bread, light clove, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of fruity yeast and dark malt flavors; with a good malt/fruitiness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall the is a very good Dubbel style. Good balance and robustness of malt and fruity ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottle: Poured a deep brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of dry caramelized malt with light fruity ester and some dry raisins and plum notes is not as rich and enticing as I had expected. Taste is also dominated by dry caramelized malt with some light fruity ester and some dry raisins and plums notes. Residual sugar is quite lower then I would have expected for the style. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad overall but not as rich and sweet as I was expecting.

Pours a hazy deep amber to brown-ish color with a tan head. In the aroma, quite iced tea like, malty and sweet. In the taste, a small dry hop presence in sweet tea is the best way to describe it. A hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry lemon like citrus and tea in the aftertaste. Like sweet tea, notes of lemon, and different with a hop presence.
