look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - Dark ruby in color. head is tan and settles to nothing more than a thin layer. No lacing as it falls at this point. Slight haziness.

S - I'm struggling to pick up anything. A candy sweetness is there. Some breadiness.. I can't notice any belgian phenols or really anything. I should wait for it to warm up a bit but I'm going to dive in.

T - Crystal malts hit up front. Sweet and malty. I'm not picking up anything belgian here.

M - Very strong bite from the carbonation. No alcohol warmth perceptible. Somewhat thin.

O - I like the beer and I would drink another. The problem is I'm not getting any phenolic flavors. No dark fruit. Nothing belgian. It is a safe interpretation and it is good but not a good representative of an abbey style.

Appearance:
Drank this from the bottle at a holiday party. I thought it had a nice enough presentation.

Smell:
Smells of cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of a pleasant beer scent.

Taste:
Tastes like it smells like. The balance between the spices and the beer was really good.

Mouthfeel:
It was a nice medium mouthfeel with a pleasant, mildly spiced, finish.

Overall:
This was a pleasant Dubbel with a nice balance of cinnamon and nutmeg flavors.
