Smoooth dubbel that is too easy to drink! It poured a light brown opaque with a slight tan head with bubbles so small they were hard to distinguish as bubbles.
The smell was like rumraisin coffee cake and made my mouth water. Sweet caramel and yeast rounded out the smell.
Wow...for 8% alcohol, it's smooth and mellow and oh-so drinkable. Slightly metallic at first, the raisin and plums soon gave way to a sweet yet slightly tart whisper of natural hops. The taste made a slow exit and left no bitterness at all. The alcohol was well hidden in this brew and only noticed when I felt the slight burn well after I had swallowed.
As I said in my opening statement, this is a very smooth, drinkable dubbel. I'm ready to curl up with another and let this beer do it's magic.
