750mL bottle best by 05/01/09. Poured into a chalice.

Pours a clear dark brown with ruby highlights and about a half finger of light brown head. Aroma is very subdued at first but really comes alive as this beers warms. There is a decent amount of malty (somewhat caramel) sweetness, a touch of fruity esters (raisins), some light phenols and a bit of soft, almost rose-like alcohol. Taste is pretty good, the flavors here are a bit more robust with a moderate malty sweetness and a bit stronger dark fruit ester profile (namely raisins) and a low and short lived bitterness. Mouthfeel is pretty goo with a medium+ body, moderate+ carbonation and a bit of alcohol warmth. Drinkability is pretty good. This brew becomes infinitely more complex as it warms. It is fairly interesting with a good complexity. I was easily able to finish the entire 750 and was pleasantly surprised at just how much this brew evolved an improved as it warmed.

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.

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.
