Brewed in the style of a Belgian monastery. This mahogany ale has the sweetness of dark Belgian candi sugar paired with a distinct aroma of plum and pears.

Appears a mahogany color with a small off white head and scattered lacing.
Smell is of raisins, prunes, and bready yeast.
Taste is of the same sweet aromas with a pleasantness that seems to be a nice take on a Belgian Dubbel.
Mouthfeel is dry with some sweet caramel upfront with the nice yeast. (299 characters)

As far as the Dubbel style goes, this beer was incredibly easy drinking.

It first arrived in a 12oz. short-stemmed goblet which bewares the drinker of a higher alcohol content. It appeared to be a ruby-walnut color with a half inch light white head. The smell was sweet and satifactory but not overwelmingly suductive. As the first taste reached my tongue I was impressed by it's smooth sweetness followed by its sharp bite. It felt slightly port like to me, a little syrupy, in a good way. This Dubbel easily went down to quickly when it was originally acquired to be pondered.

Nice beer. (597 characters)
