4.03/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

330ml bottle, poured into a Delerium Tremens glass

Pours with a dark rich brown body, woody mahogany hints around the edges. Bubbly tan head forms about an inch thick but soon settles down to form a thin tan form over the beer. Not much lacing evident

Smell, rich yeasty alcoholic malt, dry syrupy fruit character, a few raisiny esters along with a hint of phenolic character. Whiffy heady alcohol along with some bready malt, yeasty aroma of freshly baked brown bread

Taste, crisp and alcohol tinged bready malt, rich digestive biscuits. Some dried fruit, lingering sweet brown bread once again. Spicy yeast character along with a little bit of sweet molasses probably derived from the candied sugar

A dubbel worth seeking out, lots of yeast, brown bread and dried fruit flavours.

4.21/5  rDev +5%
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.

A. Pours a dark clear beer. Too dark to see through. Pours with a nice light carmel head. It last for a bit, then dissipates to some nice lacing.
S. Getting some nice dark fruits with a malt backbone.
T. Dynamite. Similar to the smell. Dark fruits, raisins, I can convince myself of a cherry in there somewhere.
M. Appropriate for the beer. Moderately carbonated. What I would expect from this beer.
O. A well crafted dubbel if not on the easier side of a dubbel. Not a brown Ale as advertised.
