Poured from a bottle into a Leffe goblet. The pour is very dark reddish-brown with a nice tan head. The nose has some yeasty notes, sweet bready notes, dark fruit, and a little bit of a roasty or smokey quality.
Medium-full body and nice, firm mouthfeel. Taste follows the nose quite well. There is some sweet dark fruit, some bready, cookie-like notes, ginger, cardamom, and that same little hint of smokiness right in the back of the palate. The carbonation keeps the sweetness and smokiness from getting too intense, though a bit of each lingers on the finish. The smokiness gives it a roasty quality, almost like a stout.
Overall, a nice dubbel, but not really in the same league as a top-shelf Trappist dubbel. The depth of flavor and pastry-like taste typically brought on by Belgian yeast strains doesn't seem to be present here. Still, it has a distinct flavor all its own and is tasty in its own right. Fans of dubbels should try this one. I doubt you've ever had one quite like it.
