3.65/5 rDev -8.5%
Appearance: a dark garnet red color that lacks just a little bit of the brightness that often comes with similar colors. a finger of a whitish head that fades slowly and leaves just about nothing behind. pretty dark and almost opaque but clearer around the edges. 3.5/5
Smell: dark fruits, raisins and prunes. dark sweet candi sugar and belgian yeast. 3.75/5
Taste: opens up with sweet candi and hints of dark fruits. belgian yeast comes off slightly clove-like and fruity. backend is strong, bold and almost juicy raisins and prunes. Just a bit too strong on the raisins. 3.5/5
Mouthfeel: fairly heavy and full bodied. a touch on the velvety smooth side. quite dry. 4/5
Overall: A decent dubbel. the raisin taste is too strong for me and strikes the balance a little bit too far.

3.61/5 rDev -9.5%
This beer just adds to the arguement that Virginia is rapidly becoming a great source for great craft brews. This beer has a great darkfruit fig flavor. Super smooth too. But almost too smooth. If it weren't for tube flavor I would almost mistake this for a milk stout. Not really a lot of carbonation. But the flavor is Belgian as you can get. Very easy to drink. I can see why it won the awards it has. I would definayely drink this again.

Poured into a snifter glass
Appearance: rich mahogany in color with some reddish hues. Was surprised there was little foam or head retention. After a few minutes there was none. Was it the way it was poured?
Smell: Immediate notes of spice and the malts came through as you swirled the glass. Intensified as the glass warmed. Very complex.
Taste: Tastes of brown sugar, and spices. Nice sweet flavor, but not overpowering sweetness from candied sugars. As it warmed the bread flavors surfaced and it became more complex. Finish of mild hops and all the flavors lingered on nicely. Taste and nose definately compliment one another. There's alot going on in this beer.
Moutfeel: medium bodied and creamy with decent carbonation. Alcohol taste was mild and not too noticeable for being 7.9%
Overall: A great beer! Was a little concerned when I saw how it poured, but nothing to worry about in the taste. Will be trying again soon and comparing to this experience.
Hope they begin experimenting with other Beligan styles. Bartender told me this beer won the Belgian style Gold medal at the 2013 US Open Beer Championship. Definately would be a contender in any contest.
