12 oz bottle into Chimay chalice.
Clear dark red brown with ruby highlights and a tight tan colored cap which fizzes and falls quickly.
Sour pungent odor: tart green apples, grapes, yeasty funk
Taste is intense and complex. Green apples, pears, grapes. Doughy and bready; warm. A hint of molasses. Spiced; anise, cloves, black pepper. Fruity yet dry. Lots going on.
Mouth is crisply carbonated and dry with a slight warming in the throat.
Drinkability is quite good.
An excellent Dubbel.

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
