750 ml corked and caged bottle, 2010 vintage, so 4 years old.

Medium body color, foamy off white head. Very nice aroma - complex malt, bready, nutty. Same flavors in the taste, plus some earthy herbal notes. Medium body, soft smooth carbonation. Very nice dubbel, a prime example overall.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Dark brown color with a huge thick beige head with excellent retention and eternal plate. Some floating particles.
Nice aroma with notes of sweet nuts, chocolate, mild hay and prunes.
Flavor with notes of prunes, spices, lots of cocoa chocolate, toasted malts, peppery yeast, candi sugar, figs, grapes, earthy hops and piñacolada rum. Hints of cinnamon and banana. Dry aftertaste with a mild to medium muffled bitterness.
Medium towards full creamy body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 8% abv is superbly well hidden.
Excellent brew, between a Dubbel and a BDSA, with good complexity and full of flavors and spices. Well balanced and not overly sweet as several other Belgians can be. Ages well. Recommended.

11.2oz Bottle from Total Wine Palm Springs CA for $4

Appearance - Slightly hazy brown colour with a large size frothy beige coloured head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for 5 minutes.

Smell - Malts, dark fruits, peppery spice mix

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste dates/raisins, malts, clove, and some faint chocolate.

Overall - A great grape/fruity flavour mixed in with the belgian spice mix make this a delicious beer. Very easy to drink and almost refreshing in a way. The perfect amount of sweetness as well.
