[Suggested Glassware: Trappist Glass]
The pour was a cloudy medium chestnut brown with a small (less than 1 finger) off white frothy head that quickly diminished, leaving behind a light scattered film and having fair spotty lacing.
The aroma had a bold fruity ester (raisons and prunes) right off the bat along with a dark bread malt and a musty Belgian yeast with a touch of brown sugar and a mild vinous scent.
The taste was malty sweet with a slight yeast presence from the start and pretty much was the case throughout, with the finish being rather fruity and mildly tart with light alcohol presence at the end. The flavor faded quickly off the taste buds with just a hint of dried fruit and a mild alcohol warming sensation left behind.
Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a mildly dry texture and a prickly carbonation.
Overall this was a very enjoyable yet mild Dubbel, with an avid aroma and a somewhat subdued yeast intensity in the flavor...

A- A reddish amber color that is clear. really no head and minimal lacing.
S- Vinegar malts and roasted nuts. I get some sugary hints as well maybe molasses. Smell is very inviting.
F- dark chocolate roasted malts dominate the mouth. molasses or some sort of dark candied sugar fruit. I cant put my tongue on it.
M- malty and creamy. It gets to be struggle as you get closer to the bottom. The malts tend to over dominate.
O- not a bad brew but not sure I would have it at a bar. It is worth a try but nothing more.
