look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

On tap at Republic

A: dark with ruby edge, nice looking khaki head
S: some prune, some caramel, weak hard to identify spice. (maybe cardomom?)
T & M: something isn't right here. dried fruits, bananas, some spice, but there's no integration of flavors, the mouthful is thin and minimally creamy.

Overall: I'd like to think that something was wrong, though the establishment is usually pretty good about tap lines, etc.

Honestly I was a little disappointed. It lacked anything to get you excited. Kind of just sat there on my palate. No real resemblance to any Dubbel I've ever had.

Dark malts, citrusy tartness, prune and other dried fruit on the nose.
Pours brilliant chestnut with a 2" root beer float like fluffy, rocky off-white head. Very fine uniform bubbles provide thick lace.
Palate starts with spicy fruit cake dried fruit, banana, prune to plum, hint of caramel, with a hint of cardamom to cola. Very rich but dries out with a touch of tartness on the finish.
Very creamy medium to slightly above body with above average carbonation.
