From a 750 ml bottle into a chalice.
A-A slightly aggressive pour produced two fingers of pillowy, tan head. The foam faded quickly to less than a finger, but hung around for a bit. The brew is mostly clear and reddish, brown in color. The ruby tones are attractive.
S-This thing started out sweet and boozy, but mellowed slightly after the initial whiffs. A fair amount of baking spices on the nose like cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg were accompanied by sweet, overripe banana-scented yeast.
T-Taste followed the smell pretty closely, but was not quite as sweet. There were some brown sugar and molasses flavors and the aforementioned baking spices to go with a lightly malty backbone, but also some off-putting metallic notes. The metallic flavors faded as the brew neared room temperature, but never completely disappeared.
M-The brew was medium to full-bodied with low amounts of carbonation. The finish went from slightly sweet to semi-dry.
O-This brew is solid. It ranks of the sweet side of the dubbel spectrum, but not quite as cloying as some, e.g., New Belgium Abbey. The flavors are well-balanced with the alcohol sweetness and it is not overly spiced. The feel is probably the high point for me. If it weren't for the strange metallic flavors, this would be a pretty great American dubbel.

This pours dark mahogany, nice light tan fizz, maybe a bit over-excited but not outrageous. There are floaties suspended in the beverage, but I like that.
Smell is sweet, candy sugar, ripe cherries - very nice and light.
Taste is refreshing. Spicy. Cinnamon. rasins. more dark cherries. There is some hop cleanup on the finish, but it is not at all "hoppy".
Mouthfeel is nice and creamy, and stays fizzy as it warms slightly. It is very nice.
The body is a bit heavier than other dubbles.
I really like this. it's a great overall beverage. I like everything in this brewery's Smokestack series, and this is rolling right up there with the best.
