Deep, dark mahogany tone. Good clarity. Slight beige head leaves some sparse, spotty lace. Aroma is cherry, chocolate covered raisin and fig. Even some plum too. Nice nose. Flavor follows suit. Quite nice. Chocolate covered cherries and bread pudding. Banana esters and cakey yeastiness. Dates and almond. A virtual bonanza of flavor. Mouthfeel is even keeled...smooth and lightly carbonated Drinkable is an understatement. One of the better dubbels I've ever had. It's not one of my favorite styles, but this is at the top.

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.

Poured from corked 750 ml bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. No dating visible.

Appearance: Pours a very dark and cloudy brown with a little ruby red at the bottom of the glass. Lots of bubbles and a huge off white head that takes up the whole tulip and slowly fades into a thin layer. Lacing is fairly light.

Smell: A nice aroma of yeast and dark fruits. Belgian yeast with some cloves. Hints of banana and dark fruits including grapes, prunes, raisins, and fig. Also a little caramel. Its what you would expect from a good Dubbel.

Taste: Nice spicy bite from the Belgian yeast and cloves. Also a little cinnamon spice. Some sweet caramel malt and banana. Big dark fruit presence with notes of raisins, prunes, grapes, and fig. The spices are very good. Pretty solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a carbonation on the heavier side. Feels spicy and prickly. Finishes pretty dry. Alcohol is hidden well.

Overall: A pretty good take on a Belgian Dubbel from this new brewery. Good combination of spices and sweetness.

Picked up a bottle at Princeton's Liquors. Heck of a dubbel. It's a complex beer that isn't too rich or thick, but still covers a lot of ground. There's a roasted edge with a touch of cocoa; a peppery, bitter finish; smooth, gentle fruit (cherry and apple); and a subtle caramel malt taste. The beer finishes dry and could be sipped after dinner, or paired with a hearty meal. Find this beer.
