look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I poured an ittty bitty 25 ml capped bottle into a chalice.

A: It poured a brownish red body with a massive three finger sticky head that supported a solid dense lacing that lingered longer than expected.

S: It smelled of dark roasted sweet malts with dark fruits (raisins and plums) and chocolate.

T: It had a rich toasted malt flavor that tasted like rich milk chocolate accented by raisins and almonds. It was well balanced and a joy to drink.

M: It was medium to full bodied with a sweet front and clean finish.

D: This was a nice rich dubbel that was easy to drink. It started sweet and ended clean with little aftertaste. I will enjoy this brew again and again.

3.23/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

25 cl.bottle. Pours a big head that leaves a creamy lace. Ruby brown colour with red shades holing it to the light. Aroma of pie, vanilla, licorice, roasted notes and chocolate. Flavour is roasted but sweet, though a bit watery. Mouth of chocolate, licorice, raisins. Better than its sister Blondine in my opinion, but nothing very special. Nice drink if you have the chance, though.
