a: think liquid caramel with a generous two finger head that's made up of thousands of quick moving bubbles.

s: caramel, spice and dark fruits like figs, raisins and plums soaked in booze.

t: sweet and spicy. tons of caramel malts and spices like corriander and pepper maybe a little star of anise.

m: medium body, very well carbonated, you can feel the bubbles liven up the taste buds. some burn from the pepper on the back of my tongue. a dry finish that leaves you wanting another sip.

o: nice dubbel, glad i finally took the time to enjoy a bottle out of the glass instead of drinkin out of 12oz bottles.

A great beer! Smell is malty, with hints of caramel, banana and nuts; a bit spicy too, typical of many Belgians. Tastes boozy yet smooth. I get dark fruits, but also orange, caramel, and spices. Carbonation mellows as the beer warms. Overall, a superb dubbel brewed in the Belgian tradition by an American brewer.

Pours a mahogany color with dark red highlights and a frothy tan head that leaves lots of foamy spotty lacing on the chalice as it recedes,

Aromas begin with dark fruity cherries and raisins, some yeasty spice and doughy malt. As it warms I get some sweeter brown sugar and rum-soaked brown bread.

The tastes begin with the same dark fruity cherries, up front, with developing sweeter fig and golden raisin. As it warms you get an increasingly sweeter candy sugar sweeteness and some spice cake.

The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Finish is semi-dry with lingering dark fruits and a hint of warmth in the gullet.

Overall this is a good Belgian dubbel but by no means my favorite. Fairly dark fruit forward with emerging alcohol and a strong yeasty spice. I bet all these flavors would mellow out with age but there are also higher quality examples worthy of cellar space. Good, not great, worth a try to emerging fans of the style for availability and fair price point.
