4.31/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a chilled LaTrappe goblet.

Appearance 4.5: Poured a deep black. Completely opaque. Tan head followed with the pour and stayed at a lovely 1/4" the entire session. What was really remarkable to me is how the lower edges of the head have a serrated look due to the big, bottle conditioned bubbles rising from the beer. Just gorgeous.

Smell 4.5: Very unique and pleasing bouquet. There is an earthy scent to this beer and it is matched with dried fruit, toasted grains and a certain briny scent. There is also a light hint of noble hops and the requisite Belgian yeasty spice.

Taste 4.25: The front was slightly sweet, with a subtle undercurrent of toasted grains. This faded into the middle which was remarkably empty of anything other than dryness. The finish was where a the flavors popped back up and I detected the Belgian yeast, a brief hint of smoke and a delightful hit of barley and light woody rosins. Aftertaste was short and dry, but focused on the toasted grains and barley.

Mouthfeel 4.25: Smooth and dry, with a deceptive clean, clear and light feel.

Overall 4.25: An excellent beer, but not the best dubbel I have ever had. Which is like saying, "This bar of gold is somewhat less oblong than I usually prefer." This is a fantastic beer and its dryness would lend it to accompany almost any type of food you can think up. It is also fabulous for sessions and has no hint of: a.) alcohol or b.) "wet dog," both of which have the tendency to pop up in some dubbels. Recommended, but if you are put off by this beer, just keep trying dubbels...you'll find one that really knocks your socks off.

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy brown with tall, long-lasting, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of plums, cherries, caramel, funky yeast and brown sugar. Body is full and crisp. Spicy yeast, caramel malt, plums, raisins, brown sugar, minerals and herbal hops fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Nice Dubbel.

look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Copper to dark red, Smells like flowers of plants from genus Viola. Easy pouring give solid amount light brown foam. Apples, citrus, dark chocolate for cooking, weak sense of honey, and some grains. Nicely flows down the throat, asking for more. Some field plants in aftertaste, almost like liquor. Very favorable.
