Pours a deep cloudy amber with a nice rich head. Inviting. Smells like sweet caramel malts with just a hint of alcohol to bite the nose. Tastes rich with sweet biscuity malts, clove, and a little lemon bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is pleasant and resinous on the tongue. Overall, enjoyed this brew and would buy again.

Pours a dark amber color with a small, but persistent head.
Aroma is Belgian spice, yeasty, dark fruit, and malt.

Taste begins with a strong malt presence which is followed by dark fruit/yeast and a subtle touch of sweetness at the end that blends with the bitterness very nicely. Picking up on hints of chocolate, molasses, and a definite roasted nut flavor. It finishes dry and has a high carbonation level.

Overall, a very nice Belgian dubbel.

I think this bottle is fairly old...

A: Ruby with a thin bubbly head and lacing that slides down the snifter

S: Nutty and plums. I pick up a hint of noble hops - I'm probably just crazy.

T: Complex and loaded with dark fruits such as raisins, plums, and also a nutty flavor. Somewhat warming.

M: Medium bodied with a dry finish.

O: I measure most belgian beers against breweries such as Ommegang and Chimay and this surpassed both of their dubbels in my book. Complex, layered, dry, and balanced. Great dubbel.

Had on tap at Vin 909 in an Allagash glass

A-Pours a burnt orange red color, with one finger of head. Decent lacing.

S-Aromas are full of dark fruits including dates, figs, raisins, also some toffee and other sweet malts.

T-Taste is of dark fruits, now i get cherries, figs, raisins, and a slight nuttiness.

M-Mouthfell is well balanced great carbonation. Has a finish that is clean and smooth with very good drinkability.

O-Overall, this is a great brew away to go Allagash!
