2.5/5  rDev -29.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Got a single bottle from a Spirits Unlimited so it's probably pretty old (You can never find a fresh beer at a Spirits Chain in NJ, just a warning) but I figured since it's a dubbel it should hold up. (Also the only beers that ever make it to a spirits mix-a-six section is old beers and seasonals so)

Clear brown color with a head that quickly dies. Faint nose of dark belgian candy sugars, beets, caramel and toffee.

Ripe fruit flavors, on the lighter end of being medium bodied and crisp. Faint dark fruit bowl up front, followed by a sweet belgian candy sugar taste and then finishes clean with a faint lingering sweetness. The flavors are right but barely and almost undetectable (and for once it tastes kind of fresh) touch of alcohol heat. Simple light and drinkable. But that's not how I want my dubbels. This tastes more like a crossover beer as if AB-inbev made a friendly 7.99 six pack dubbel for people to try. The flavors are right if you dig for them, unoffensive, and light. Kind of like "My-First-Dubbel" kind of thing.

This is not a bad beer.
Though it Doesn't embody a true dubbel in my opinion, just an intro to one.

3.36/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

P- Wegmans in Mechanicsburg, PA

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.
