Pours a clear amber red with some alright head that eventually fades to nothing. Has some raisin and brown sugar notes. Some sharp alcohol in the nose as it warms . Also has some slight chewy caramel malts. Little to no hop aroma. Tastes similar to nose with medium to full mouthfeel. Flavors also give hints of fig and dark fruits (plum, dark cherry). Average bitterness for the style with a slight bite at the tail end. Overall, a very nice beer. Solid and very drinkable.

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.

Poured from bottle into a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep mahogany color with a small fizzy white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a good deal of foamy lace on the sides of the glass and a persistent film on the surface of the beer.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is a nice blend of fruits and some other aromas of a more roasted malt, yeast, candy, and spice. The fruits, which are the biggest, are of a raisin and plum smell predominantly but have a good deal of banana as well. The roasted malt is lighter overall but complements the fruit nicely. The yeasty smells carry the spice smells of coriander and clove nicely with the candied sugar smell rounding out all the aromas nicely.

Taste – The taste begins with a blend of darker fruits of cherry and plum along with a moderately strong candied sugar taste. Upfront the taste is rather sweet, with it losing some of the sweetness of candied sugar, but intensifying in darker fruits as the flavors advances, with the flavor remaining overall on the sweeter side. After the initial taste some light roasted malt and a good dose of yeast comes to the tongue. The yeast brings with it tastes of spice with coriander, clove, and a little bit of pepper. A little bit of a boozy and warming flavor comes to the tongue at the very end, leaving one with a decently sweeter and fruitier dubbel flavor with linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly above average side. For the most part, fairly decent but also noting too fantastic. OK for the blend of yeast, spice and fruit.

Overall – A pretty enjoyable dubbel overall. Rather easy drinking and affordable in comparison to more renowned dubbels. It is at least worth a try.
