Appearance: A chestnut brown, with a pale, eggshell-white head. Very creamy head, and it lasts a while.
Smell: Dark fruits, dates specifically, brown sugar and pale syrup. Definitely smells sweet, and dark in the way that Belgians tend to be.
Taste: Sweet, dark fruits, hints of caramel. Belgian sugar comes through a lot too, obviously.
Mouthfeel: Thick, creamy, and sticky, lower carb than with the Westy Blonde. Still works beautifully for the beer though.
Overall: Another solid, exceptional example of what a Belgian dubbel should be. Those monks know what they’re doing.
