Poured from a chilled bottle into a shaker pint. Bottle package date is 6/6/2013.
Looks nice in the glass, somewhere between a honey brown and a deep mahogany. Just a bit cloudy and translucent. Good sized head which settles down pretty quickly. Not much lacing falling down the glass.
Smells great, tons of raisins, sticky toffee pudding, brown sugar and a little molasses. Tastes like it smells, really fills out nicely. There's lots of that nice malt sweetness with dark fruit flavors. It does seem a little bit over carbonated for my tastes, but otherwise a fantastic dubbel! I was really in the mood for some dubbels, but didn't feel like shelling out for Rochefort 6. This isn't quite as good, but it still hits the spot and is a fantastic beer.
