c&c bottle into trois pistoles chalice
the body is a good colour, dark brown, and a red brown when held up to the light. the head is big and creamy, light brown/dark cream coloured; retains well, laces average. the nose is good and fruity, malty, and a touch of booze. taste is missing that dubbel punch. it has the right parts but they're all in the wrong proportion, its fruity like a bdsa, a bit astringent or bitter hoppy,the aftertaste is like i licked a steel pole; again, I have proven to myself that the trappistes cannot be beat! the feel just istnt right, too thin and bubbly.
Plus, who the fuck quotes Montaigne on a beer bottle?

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
