Poured a deep reddish brown, with a slight ring of white head. When held to light it was a brilliant ruby red. Very beautiful to the eye. Scents of grape, slight hints of alcohol and dark fruit. A good nose, quite unique, and very fruity. I like it. Flavors of grape, prune, very slight hints of apple, blackberry and Belgian candy sugar sweetness. Very nice, sweet and complex with a good fruity character. As it warms more prune dominates the taste. It's quite nice, a bit sweet, but overall very good. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. Somewhat standard for a dubbel, maybe a bit low on the carbonation front. Overall it's a very good dubbel, a nice surprise. The fruity flavors are pleasant and it was quite complex in many ways. Worth trying at the very least.

Someone kindly left a sixer of this in my fridge after a murder mystery party. Poured a bottle into a Chimay goblet.
A -- Murky brownish body with lots of stuff floating in it. Tan head that pours into a couple fingers but recedes to a thin layer with unevenly sized bubbles on top. Good lacing.
N -- Yeasts. Some bubblegummy kind of smells. A little fruity.
T -- Good. Not overly strong or complex, but tasty and representative of the style. Has almost a sour cherry taste at points.
M -- Spicy on the lips and smooth on the palate.
O -- A good dubble.

330ml bottle. Grimbergen Goblet glass. Deep ruby color, red lights. Tan, creamy foam remains as a thin layer on top. Toasted, sugary & red currant aromas with syrup hues. Sweet & sparkling upfront. Medium to light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Hints of grape, spicy & herbal bitterness. Bitter finish & sugary aftertaste. Artificial & cloying.
