This variation on the dubbel style is classic, IMO. If you want to have a double dubbel, this is the single Belgian for you.
Poured into a crystal water glass. Dark cola in appearance with a nicely formed mousse that lingers and laces the glass.
The nose is Belgian yeast and lightly roasted malt.
The taste is not nearly as dark as the color. A sweet malt base with enough hop bitterness to keep it light on the palate. Perhaps it is the color, but I taste old-fashioned cola nut. This is not a very difficult beer to understand or enjoy.
Mouthfeel is like a fizzy American-style ale. It's not as languid as the other Belgians. Enjoyable.
One of my standby ales, if I don't know what I want in the liquor store I know that I'll be pleased with a six pack of this in the refrigerator.
