12 oz bottle was poured into a Chimay goblet. I picked this at Ata small bottle shop in the North End of Boston.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a mahogany crimson color with a little clarity when held up to the light with some slow bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: malty, spicy, yeasty, and some dried fruit. Nice dubbel aroma to the nose.
Taste: Caramel and bready malts, spicy, yeasty, and dried orange marmalade.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, low to medium carbonation, medium bodied, a little chewy, and a nice sipper.
Overall: A nice dubbel from Italia. One shot deal and happy to have enjoyed this treat from across the see.

Poured from bottle into tulip. Deep amber brown color with thick creamy head. Nuce sugary and dried fruit aromas. Taste is sweet raison and sugar.. a bit of dried fruit with some caramel vanilla finish. Its a bit thin but rather smooth. Overall a very good dubbel..while its not the best its pretty tasty.

Color- dark sassafras. Huge head.
Aroma- gentle caramelized sugar, hint of custard, and floral backdrop.
Taste- Starts with a mildly roasted malt, but has lager-like elements, very mellow finish.
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 7/20/2013.

A dubbel from Italy, interesting.
Pours a fizzy foamy 1 finger head that fades at a fairly quick rate, leaving nice soapy lacing, over a dark hazy auburn mahogany red colored beer with hints of ruby light coming through.
Nose brings the fruit I expected, dark dried fruit, fig, date, touch of candied raisin with brown sugar, and some fleshy stone fruit like plum, and a light syrupy molasses, then a bit of a yeasty bready aroma, a touch of phenolic booze, mild esters, a sweet raisin molasses bread.
Taste starts with more candy flavors, candied raisins, brown sugar, molasses, little syrupy, etc. Plenty of fruits again, a nice plum flavor, some fig and date, little sweet syrupy flavors, then with that comes mild esters again, little phenolic booze as well, and little booze warmth, as well as light bready yeast characters again, almost mirroring the aroma except more plummy. A mild bitterness comes through with touch of hops. Finish is drier and a bit more warming booze, slight dark fruits with more plum, light brown sugar fig and raisin.
Mouth is med bod, decent carb, light warming booze.
Overall not bad, nothing too special but a nice dubbel, good amount of esters and nice phenols, booze is in place but a little boozier than 7.5%, nice dark fruits and sweet characters, pretty tasty.
