A- clear chocolaty brown with a slight amber tint. Nice big tan foamy head that dissipates slowly. Excellent lacing.
S- biscuity, clean, spicy. Very up front Belgian yeast.
T- a good bit going on in here. Nice complexities. Caramel, malt, and some sour (fruit) notes on the end. What hits me up front, oddly, is what seems like a cola taste. Interesting.
M- silky, smooth, and very creamy from the first sip all the way through to the end. Light to medium. Lightly carbonated. Outstanding!
O- very good. Excellent example of a quality Belgian Dubbel that's reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend and purchase again.

Pours a very dark red colour with a very creamy looking head - which unfortunately disappears rather quickly. Smells like cherries, licorise and malt - very nice. Even while only 6.5%, it has a strong taste of alcohol. The malts are very well balanced by the hop bitterness - just enough to make it neither too sweet nor too bitter. Warm caramel flavours mingle with the malts. It has a very smooth mouthfeel, not at all dry. Just a hint more carbonation would do some good. Overall this beer is definitely worth a try and I'll be buying it again for sure.

Paid almost $15 for a six pack, that's the last time I buy it. pours with a lacy tan head and looks nice in the glass giving off a glowing mahogany color. Taste is too sweet for my liking and has an overwhelming note of sour apples. I've had much better Dubbels in the past, this one just doesn't live up to expectations. It was a chore to polish off all six bottles since I didn't find it very enjoyable at all.
