Pours a transparent red-brown hue. Head is almost tan, at the pour it stands about 1/2 inch in a pint glass. After anout a minute it has receeded to a film. Smell is of caramel malt and Belgian yeast esther notes. Taste starts sweet, then I get some of those Belgian yeast notes. I also catch a hint of dark fruit. Alcohol becomes present in the taste as the beer warms. Mouthfeel is heavy, slight carbonation. Overall, an approachable dubbel. I think this is spectacular grocery store beer, especially considering price. I think this will be worth a 6 pack this winter.

hmmm not so sure about this from the get go.

appearance. I expect it dark. Like black dark but its not. dark cooper in color. Large two finger head that looks really nice. The head disappeared quickly.
smell- Lots of hops. Yep it smells like the hop room at a nice brewery.
taste- hops and bitterness.
mouthfeel- very active little to much activity for me.
overall- I guess I don't match others on this....It was ok but nothing more then that. honestly I didn't finish it....
