3.15/5  rDev -16.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Poured a deep ruby color with ok carbonation leaving a lightly dirty cap

S: Some sweet candy, dark fruits but pretty tame

T: Pretty toned down. Grapes, plums, a fig or two, some candy sweetness but overall it was not that impressive. A decent amount of flavor but nothing to make if warrant a B.

M: Sweet, booze, medium body

O: Pretty average for the style

Had on tap a couple weeks back. Poured a hazy reddish-brown into a pint glass with a small finger of white head. Fairly weak aroma of brown sugar, biscuit, and a touch of raisin.

Slightly syrupy mouthfeel but the level of carbonation keeps things crisp enough. Fairly sturdy toffee malt backbone with hints of dark fruit and muddled spice. On the sweeter side.

Pleasant if somewhat generic dubbel flavors going on, but I believe the ABV was around 8% and this brew concealed it pretty darn well.
