Pour -- Into a tulip glass. Pours a thin reddish brown. Brownish white head forms at the top, thick but thin, eventually forming a nice layer of cream that stays throughout the entire tasting.
Aroma -- Nice malty smell, but not too strong. A subtle scent, not its strong point.
Mouthfeel -- carbonation is there, but low-to-medium. It's pretty smooth.
Taste -- Its absolute strongest point. I sipped on this over the course of a half hour, and savored every drop of it. I like to start these out a little colder than recommended, and let the taste gradually enhance as it goes on, and this, even cold, had a very nice flavor. I had one of these the same weekend I had a Rochefort 8, and while this is the minority opinion, I found the Prior 8 exceedingly more tasteful. I've had the St. B quad, but this was my first time with their dubbel, and this is now my favorite dubbel, hands down.
