[Suggested Glassware: Trappist Glass]

The pour was a murky dark brown with a slight reddish hue and an average (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head, which reduced down to a medium film and collar with excellent sheeting of lacing.

The aroma was strong of a musty Belgian yeast and a toasted grain malt with notes of toffee, dark fruit (dates and figs) and a mild medicinal odor.

The taste was a tad sweet with a nice malty feel, a hint of toffee and a slight chocolate presence from the start, becoming ever so lightly bitter with a good sweet yeast taste and a note of dark fruit and a slight medicinal flavor right at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a dry, bitter and slightly fruity taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was medium in body with a dry, creamy texture and a ticklish carbonation.

Overall this was a decent enough Dubbel, which was rich and creamy and had a nice bold yeasty taste. Although I did think it was a bit over carbonated, it did still possess a smooth and satisfying drinkability...

Poured from a pint ceramic bottle into a tulip glass, best before 08/29/2016. This pours a dark brown almost black with a massive tan head which dissapates in a few minutes to a thin film. The smell is mostly malty, dark fruits, coco. The feel is mediumish high carbonination. The taste is okay, lighter than expected, you get some brown sugar, plum, coco, light malts.
