look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours an opaque bronze with burnt orange highlights and a a good finger's worth of fine khaki foam--just beautiful to behold. Rich aroma smells of molasses, prunes, cherries, clove, coriander, brown sugar, toasted bread, and a hint of alcohol.

The bold and complex flavor profile features molasses, toasted bread, cherry, and plenty of tangy, vigorous yeast. The spices and robust carbonation do more than enough to balance the malty backbone. The yeast presence pushes the envelope a bit, but manages to remain just under control. The mouthfeel is lush, vibrant, and a solid complement to the taste.

Overall, this is a bold and flavorful brew that isn't as decidedly sweet as most of its peers. Its balance and gorgeous presentation make it one of my preferred dubbels, even though it isn't an archetypal representation of the style.
