4.28/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

330ml bottle into a snifter

A: Pours a medium to dark brown with amber high list. Three fingers of fluffy head form atop the beer. Good retention, excellent lacing.

S: Moderate sweetness comes with equal parts toffee and prunes. Behind that, esters balance the sweetness. Nutmeg and orange zest mostly - quite nice.

T: Prunes and toffee again come out as the strongest component, but the beer still stays fairly dry, appropriate for the style. I get spices again to balance, but now I get a peppercorn along with a bit of citrus and a medley of other spices.

M: Medium thickness with strong, yet creamy carbonation.

O: A great Dubbel - complex malt flavor with spices to balance.
