on tap into a Maredsous goblet.

deep reddish-brown with little head and no lacing. the lack of head does not reflect a lack of carbonation.

notes of plum with a mellow, low key sweetness. very slight spicyness on the back end.

very nice balance of flavors to alcohol. while not thick there is definitely something there. easily drinkable, almost to a fault.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Pours a lovely dark, deep-reddish brown. A tall, off-white head recedes rather slowly, but maintains a skimming of bubbles that leaves a smattering of lacing on the glass.

S - All of the deep aromas that one would expect from a dubbel, but I could go for a little more potency. Some caramel sweetness, dark fruit, maybe fig. A little breadiness.

T - Follows the nose. Caramel up front, then dark fruit. Breadiness comes in on the back end. While the flavors are subtle, which I like, they border on too thin with this one. Also, there is a mildly unpleasant aftertaste that clings to my mouth.

M - This is the week spot of the beer for me. This beer started on the light side of medium-bodied and never really swayed from there. Perhaps that is to style, but I would have preferred a bit more. Leaves a bit of stickiness in my mouth.

O - On its own merits this is a very good beer. Unfortunately, I can't help but compare it to the Pater 8, and I would select the 8 10 out of 10 times ahead of this one.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A- Pours a murky brown hue with a huge, chunky, 2.5 finger beige head.

S- Slightly yeasty, hints of chocolate

T- Chocolate, sweet pear, cherry, slight hop bitterness.

M- Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation.

D- Very drinkable. The high carbonation detracts a little for me but i'm sure it is good with some age on it.

Brown amber color with a thick beige head with great retention and leaving a wall of laces. Apparent carbonation. It got murky and darker after I poured the residual liquid.
Nice aroma of prunes, caramel malt, brown sugar and cashews.
Fruity flavor with notes of prunes, herbal and earthy hops, spices, candied sugar, yeast, pears, ripped strawberries, cinnamon and creamy chocolate. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Medium velvety body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 6.7% abv is completely absent.
Classic example of the style, a really pleasant and balanced Dubbel. It was definitely worth it to keep it in storage for a couple of years.
