thanks to BA Carlos for sharing this, enjoyed chilled from the 12oz in a goblet

The color is dark brown, practically black with thin off white head with no lace sticking and retention is good. The smell is prune-like with spice and lots of yeast esters that carry a somewhat phenolic odor with mild toast and slight hint of cocoa earthiness. The feel is semi-dry with medium high carbonation and light spice with a nice warming dry finish.

The taste is very good with malt up front and yeast cohesion in the light spice and hint of dark fruit in the taste. The light toasted grain and subtle dried plum character enhanced by subtle caramel and mild peppery quality lead to a gentle alcohol flavor in the finish. Overall a solid example of the style with very drinkable dry quality -Thanks to JC for sharing!

Best by 3/15/15

Dark brown, 2 finger off white head. Retains.

Smells yeasty with straw/farmhouse mixed in. Some raisin

Taste is yeast with some of the raisin picked up in the nose. Some sweetness, almost like children's cough syrup. Dates and other dark fruit also.

Medium carbonation and medium body.

First real go at a dubbel. The yeastiness is certainly different for me but this was good enough for me to try others

Pours a dark brown with a relatively pedestrian foamy off-white one inch head that settles into a swirling thin layer that remains just about all the way through. Good amount of lacing on the glass. Smell is grainy, sweet--hints of candy, dried fruit, raisin. Taste is also sweet, slightly malty with a very good amount of carbonation -- a slight black licorice hint to things. This is a very enjoyable winter beer. For the price (about $8 for a six pack), I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a more enjoyable dubbel. For the 7.20% ABV, this is VERY smooth.
