A - Nut-brown, hints of orange or red. Extremely murky center. Poured about a 1 1/2 finger head, which quickly dissipated down to a thin residue. Head is slightly off-white, and lacing is unremarkable.
S - Light scent, nothing overpowering. Some Belgian candi and dark fruit. Slight alcohol scent.
T - Very pleasant. Light first taste, with sweetness and candi coming in, finished with notes of nuts, cherries, prunes, and other dark fruit. Slightly more developed flavor than the nose implied. Chewing reveals a more vibrant flavor profile.
M - This is a medium-bodied beverage. There is some alcohol and carbonation sting, but it's mostly smooth. Significant foaming if you try to swish or chew it, but that also reveals more flavor. Oily, and clings to the throat.
O - This is a reasonably complex Dubbel, very good for the price point. It's lighter than its Trappist cousins, but it's not missing anything in the flavor profile.

12oz. bottle poured into a stemmed tulip.
(A)- Pours a clear cranberry red color with some mahogany shades. Minimal off-white froth but with good retention.
(S)- Lots of biscuit-like yeast. Plenty of bubblegum meets some dark fruits and banana at the end.
(T)- Very similar to the smell with a dry biscuity yeast meets some dark fruits, banana, and subtle bubblegum.
(M)- A good carbonation level. A slight grainy feel the the beer texture-wise, but tastes great and minimal bitterness.
(O)- Not many american brewers makes a great dubbel, but this one is one of the best I have had from the states.
