My first review on BA...here goes.
12oz bottle, pulled from fridged, warmed for 30 min, and poured into Ommegang chalice.
A: Beautiful deep red/amber color. One finger of light tan head that lasted for less than two minutes. Not much for lacing.
S: Malty, raisins, caramel, and booze.
T: Hit first by prickly carbonation before taste. Catch roasted grains on middle/back of tongue. Further sips as it warms are filled with caramel malts, dark fruits, and sweetness. Slightly boozy on aftertaste.
M: As mentioned, a little more prickly with carbonation than I want. A few swirls knocks down some of the carb. Medium body, nice sense of fullness on tongue due to sweetness.
O: Nice beer. Becoming a big fan of quads, so the dubbel style is a bit underwhelming, but this is still an enjoyable beer to imbibe. Good slow sipper to enjoy as it warms. Would recommend to someone wanting to sample a good representation of a domestic Belgian style brew.

My dad passed away a couple of years ago. He was a very enthusiastic fellow about many things, one of which was fruitcake (yeah, I know). In the fruitcake family, at least the way he made it, was pecan whiskey cake. Even people who hate fruitcake loved his pecan whiskey cake. This beer reminds me of that cake - dark, dried fruity, accompanied by the pleasant presence of alcohol, etc.. Whenever I drink this beer, I think of my dad and his enthusiasm for making unusual desserts.

Deep brown with amber highlights and a slightly frothy ivory head.
Aroma is figgy, with notes of dates. Fairly sweet and bready, with candi sugar.
Fairly raisiny flavor, with light alcohol and a hint of burnt sugar, with a finish of menthol and light dryness. Slight sharp cherry notes are evident. Yeast character is somewhat spicy.
Body is full, with modest carbonation and noted alcohol heat.
Very raisin dominant flavor, with light sweetness and more bready notes. The finish is fairly dry. Alcohol is noticeable. Honestly, I expected more complexity.
Serving type: on-tap
