3.65/5 rDev -3.4%

A: Deep red/plum colour with minimal carbonation. A thin head soon dissipates to a patina of lace. The depth of the colour is highly enticing.
S: Definate fruit-smell; cherries & raison. Although this sweetness is countered by a wet, resinous smell.
T: Complex taste, again the succulent dark cherry is noticeable, syrupy & winey taste finishing with caramel & slight alcohol twang.
M: Despite lack of visible carbonation, there is evident fizz against the tongue. The liquid is syrupy yet seems somewhat light on body.
D: Good example of the style; although at 6.5% it is towards the low end of the ABV for this style. No dubbel is excessively drinkable but one or 2 glasses of this dubbel delivers a rich & satiating experience.

Had on tap at T.J. Finley's, Bay Shore NY. A good deep brown with head and lacing very ample. It has a wonderfully tart fruity sugar and spice smell, which carries through in the flavor. The brown sugar and raisin taste is balanced by the hops, which evenly accentuate the drinking experience without dominating. The feel is lighter than some others, but that only helps make this a highly drinkable beer. I've had Grimbergen in the bottle as well - either way, solidly recommendable.
