Poured in a Chimay chalice. Almost black no lights comes through. The smell is mostly coffee, licorice and alcohol.

Surprisingly almost no head with low carbonation, maybe my bottle was bad.
Taste burnt caramel and coffee. The alcohol taste is very pronounced. An ok dubbed

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

A: Dark brown with a rusty red tinge, slightly cloudy, lots of carbonation and a finger of cappuccino beige head.

S: Coke, dark fruits, dates, plums, raisins, figs, fruity like cherries, snow, slight metallic. Taffy, candy like.

T: Candy apple, dark fruits, dark burnt toasted notes, lightly sweet, again that Coke like quality. Crème brulee as in the caramelized sugar top, and cherries.

M: Thick, slightly syrupy body, lots of carbonation.

O: A nicely done dubbel. The slight burnt taste is taking it down a little for me, though its unique unto itself and certainly not the worst by Petrus I’ve tasted. Drank in Duncan, SC July 2nd 2014.

This beer was not all that bad. It had a decent taste to it. This beer was not too heavy or too light, it went down smooth. The taste was not all that bad. It was not too strong or too light. This is really all that I can remember about this beer, it has been so long since I have had this one. But if you have not had it you should try it. The thing that I remember the most about this beer is that I liked it.
