A- A very cloudy amber-brown colored beer.Abundant and dense white foam with regular duration.Carbonation suited correctly for this style.

S- Malty and toffy aroma not intense.

T- Malty sweet taste, some hints of toffee gives space to a yeasty final, bitterness is too low in my opinion. Having 7,5% ABV it is not a hot alcoholic taste at all,well balanced beer.

M- Medium to big body has a very good mouthfeel.

O- It is a good beer but nothing to say it is a must drink.

Best before 12/2014.

Pours a hazy dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, dark fruit, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with dark fruit and slight metallic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is pretty tasty but the metallic quality I am getting in the flavor isn't all that nice.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a cloudy caramel amber with a two finger white head that dissipates quickly to an active bubbly ring around the glass. Spicy aroma of orange, apple juice, caramel malt, Belgian spicing. Flavor follows aroma with apple and pear juice, mild dark dried fruit, orange citrus, caramel malt, toffee. Finishes somewhat abruptly with residual spice, slightly sour and metallic, probably from the clove or cardamom. Medium bodied with active carbonation. I enjoyed the unusual mixture of dubbel sweetness with the mildly sour finish, but the abrupt loss of fruit and malt combined with the metallic bitterness decreased the quality of the finish. Still an interesting and enjoyable take on the dubbel style.
