Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a delicate chalice (roughly 17 oz.). This dubbel has a fairly dark cloudy amber color and pours with a large off white and frothy head - like others of it's belgian kin. A very aromatic brew with the smell of fruit as well as an earthy hoppiness - very interesting and complex.
Tastes of fruit and spice. The higher alcohol content of this dubbel is definitely present, as opposed to some other belgians which hide it more, yet still subtle and not at all unpleasant. Full and well balanced body. As you swish this delicious brew across your taste buds the hops do seem to shine even more.
Drinkability is high and I could enjoy this any time of the year in probably any situation.

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
