Appearance:
This beer is a thick, murky, brown with very faint suggestions of orange when held to the light. A healthy, thick, tan head forms with great retention and no lacing.

Smell:
Not a very strong smell, rather elusive. I can smell bread from the yeast and a sweet malt caramel odor.

Taste:
A flavor of roasted malt is surprisingly consistent throughout the drinking experience. Sweet and toasty flavors hit the palette first, then a very smooth transition to an almost untraceable alcohol flavor which leads to a wet finish of bitter coffee and roasted nuts. The finishing flavor lingers in the aftertaste with the slight addition of alcohol flavor. This unique flavor has characteristics of both Belgian ales and nut brown ales, delicious.

Mouthfeel:
This brew has a very still medium to heavy body with very little carbonation.

Drinkability:
7% ABV is on the lower end of the spectrum for a dubbel, but it makes this beer much more drinkable. The subdued alcohol flavor also makes it drinkable. The balance between yeast and malt makes it drinkable. The only thing slowing this beer down is the hefty thickness of its body.

a. Nice brown color, cloudy, with 1.5 finger tan head. Disappears quickly into a trace skimming the top.

s. Spicier than expected - malt coriander, cinnamon

t. Coriander from the spice or the yeast, alcohol on the finish

m. For a 7% ABV it does not hide the alcohol well. Dry, alcohol finish hurts mouthfeel.

o. OK Beer - Coriander kills it for me, but if you like coriander, give this a try.
