Poured from a brown 25.4 oz. bottle. Has a pretty mahogany color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of rum, yeast. Taste has a bit of rum to it, but less pronounced than the smell. there are some dark fruits, malts, smooth and easy drinking for such a high abv. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality and enjoyable beer.

Poured from the bottle into a globe/tulip style glass just like the one on the label. Bottle number 1003-2000, packaged May 21st 2014.

A murky garnet like red, deep dark orange rust colored when held to the light and opaque. Barely a finger of tan head is made but manages a thick collar with a big bubbled whispy top. Looks a little lifeless, but a real interesting color I must say.

Real interesting aroma. Hints of clove and quad like warmth, huge fig notes and chewy dark fruit. Boozy aroma with a sense of liquored flavored dark cherries and molasses. Thick sensing a bit of a hint on the aroma also.

Palate manages to be quite thin for barrel aging, with a spiced watery mix. Mid palate washes and rinses with a bit of spiced wood while much of the Belgian sweetness disappears. The dark fruits are nowhere to be found on the palate either surprisingly, and there is an almost chalky aftertaste that comes from the finish. Extremely flattened body. Some fruit cherry like character manages to peak out with a hint of caramel but it's extremely wet and watery. Where is the rum character on this anyway?

Overall this is drinkable but has really become flat and quite lifeless on the palate unfortunately, with no hint of its rum aging origins it seems.

Faint whiff of nail polish remover, fusel alcohol, underlying vanilla, belgian yeast and something earthy. Not getting much of a classic belgian dubbel flavor. Almost no sweetness. Lots of oak, molasses, vanilla. Very dry.
