Served on-tap in a bar in Ghent, Belgium, into a St. Bernardus goblet. Reviewed from notes.
A: 2.5 fingers of excellent cream, tan head, and lovely thickness. Black colour.
Sm: Caramelized malt. Hops. Moderate strength.
T: Hoppily (can we adverb this?) built body, caramel, and subtle nut notes. Quite nice. Complex. Fairly well balanced.
Mf: Nicely smooth and wet, but far from perfect. Doesn't quite complement the flavours of the body.
Dr: Hides its high ABV quite well, but is nothing special, especially by Belgian standards. Wonderful but average - if that makes sense. Very well priced in Belgium.
Serving type: on-tap

33cl bottle (30 03 18) into a goblet. Amber brown with one finger tan head with good retention and lacing. Smell and taste have moderately sweet roasted caramel malts with spice and raisins. Roasted malts and raisins on the semi dry aftertaste. Became sweeter as it warmed up. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body and medium-high carbonation. Very drinkable with well hidden alcohol. Quite a lot of yeast in the bottle. A really nice dubbel that's not too sweet.
Serving type: bottle
