look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: It's a hazy brown colored body with a thick fluffy creamy khaki head that stands for a long time. It's a very beautiful looking beer in the glass. The head really accents the beer nicely. It doesn't produce much lacing.

Aroma: Alcohol...It's right up front on the nose. The beer is only 8.2% ABV and it doesn't do a very good job of hiding it. There is a light "bakery" scent to it...kind of like cookies...but not sweet or artificial. It's not that strong of a scent. Not much going on in the nose really.

Taste: Alcohol flavor, with some light caramel that coats the tongue and slowly increases the caramel flavor in the mouth as drinking this beer continues. There is a light hint of banana chips in the background, but very light on overall Belgian yeast character.

Mouthfeel: It has a good presence in the mouth. The beer is smooth and the alcohol gives it a faint warming sensation. Good carbonation. Very easy to drink.

Overall: It's a decent enough Dubbel if you have that Belgian Abbey Ale craving, but it doesn't quite meet the mark when it comes to some of the more diverse flavors that are available on the market. I wouldn't say "don't drink it" because is is a lovely beer. It just feels like a beer that was hurried or something.
