look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 4

Pours lightly hazy, dark brown-amber from a 22 oz bottle., Had a huge, medium density, tan head on top that settled fairly quickly.

Smell: Bready with dark fruits and subtle chocolate. [Served too cold, probably impairing the aroma and flavor.]

Taste: WAY more like a Belgian quad than expected, with a alcohol presence that seemed more like 9%. Also seemed more like a barrel-aged beer than one would expect. The apparent booziness is not unwelcome, and seems to add complexity, if perhaps overwhelming some more subtle flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium+ body with medium-high carbonation; harsh for style.

Overall: A pretty good, but not great, example of the dubbel style; Compared to a true Belgina dubbel, this one has a more intense flavor (more like a quad) and, perhaps, is slightly less aromatic.

Brought the bottle back from Oklahoma city a year ago...poured in a chalice....lost an ounce on the floor as this is a gusher! Minimal head quickly disappeared. Aroma of raisins, figs, dark malt, caramel. Moderate carbonation, full moutfeel, overall quite tasty. Notes of raisins, caramel, dark malts, galangal root, and a subtle alcohol warmth. As it warms up more melon rind notes appear...small sediment floaties at the end. Nice complexity and flavors.
