Nose: wine and plum, some sweet malt.
Pours hazy chestnut under a rocky slowly dissipating 3” tan tinted white foam collar. Classic Belgian Window lace.
Palate: plum, fruit cake, caramel, toffee, rich with long lingering toffee flavors well into the finish. Some plum flavors in the finish. The hops are not huge but they are there providing balance. Moderately sweet.
Medium full body with above average carbonation, warming.

Pours murky brown. The huge two inch eggshell head remains as a thick cap on top and leaves thick strands of lace. There is visible floating sediment.

The smell is of grainy dark malt, faint spice, caramel, figs and raisins.

The taste is of grain, raisins, plums and molasses with just a hint of hop bitterness on the finish.

The texture is heavy bodied with medium carbonation.

A solid Belgian dubbel with malt, dark fruit and caramel flavors dominating. Those monks are doing it right.
