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.

good local beer, on sale at the local bottle king. pours darkish brown, some fig and nutmeg aromas, hint of vanilla. flavor, hints of plum, chocolate, raisin. a bit of spicy bite. medium to light bodied, really not very thick, not a whole lot of carbonation. smooth drinking though and balanced

DATE TASTED: May 2, 2014... GLASSWARE: Chimay chalice... OCCASION: another Friday begins... APPEARANCE: dark, opaque ruby body; off-white, slightly creamy head that settles quickly; nicely lacing as the glass drains; a handsome bottle, as well... AROMA: Plum! sweet, sugary confections--some caramel and toffee--the raisin also presents late--not a plum/raisin guy myself, but this does deliver what it promises... PALATE: medium-bodied, chewy and significant--a formidable body--still drinkable without need of resolve...TASTE: big, sweet and dry--a wine's base that marries a brown ale's flatter profile--plum and malt strike an attractive balance... OVERALL: Its 7.2% ABV is well masked, as a wine-like profile is apt to do; a nice offering from the Flying Fish brewery--a great nightcap to a good day.
