A- Dark amber/cooper color. Medium bodied head.

S- Classic aroma of a Belgian styled dubble. Bready and yeasty.

T- Nice flavor of spice, caramel, yeast. Tastes like it smells.

F- Creamy, medium in body and well carbonated, the finish is dry and clean. A little flatter as it warms.

O- A good example but nothing special. 7.0% ABV is well hidden. A nice beer to mix into the loop once and a wile.

A = Deep orange color. Slightly hazy. Moderate head and lacing.

S = Malty. Nice complex aroma.

T = Very good taste. My wife and I both noticed a complex taste, but had a hard time pinpointing it. We both liked it though.

M = Creamy.

O = Buy this one again. A nice, drinking beer. Probably a good choice for people who don't like hardcore craft beers. Not sure I'd call this thing a dubbel though.

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a deep amber bordering on brownish-red color with a one finger of just off white colored head. The head fades very fast leaving a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a somewhat grainy smell with notes of raisin mixed within. Along with these smells are big aromas spice smells of cardamom and clove. A light bit of a yeast and bubblegum smell and some roasted malt smells are there as well producing sweet but oddly grainy and lightly roasted aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and sweet taste with a lightly toasted malt and caramel flavor. A raisin and cheery sweetness comes to the tongue quickly after the initial taste with it bringing some yeast flavors. After the yeast comes to the tongue, so too does a moderately spiced flavor profile with clove, cardamom, and allspice all hitting the tongue. The spices and yeast remain relatively light and with a bit of more dark fruit flavors and a very light alcohol taste coming to the tongue at the end, one is left with a lightly spiced, bready, dark fruit flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather decent for the brew highlighting the yeast, sweet, and darker fruit flavors of the brew without allowing any one flavor them to overwhelm the palate and all the while keeping it rather easy drinking.

Overall – A rather easy drinking dubbel overall. All in all it is pretty good, but is noting too outrageously good.
