Pours a murky copper color with a medium top off beige head that disolves in a slow pace. Aroma is off dark matured and dried fruits , caramel,cinnamon and burned sugar. The taste is medium sweet and medium bitter . It is fruity in the starts and finish off with a slight spicy bitterness. A little weak in the finish and aftertaste. It is medium carbonated with a medium body and a creamy mouthfeel. All in all is a good and easy drinking dubbel, but it gets a little weak in all fronts to be a outstanding dubbel.

When I opened the bottle is fizzed up everywhere and it was lucky I did it by the sink and now by my laptop, so watch out!

Good head level and reddish brown colour.

Aroma of currants, dates and maybe banana skin...

Not really a huge fan of doubles/dubbels...not really a fan of this either. Neither the refreshingness of a lager or depth of flavour of a tripel, the hoppiness of an IPA or the smoothness of a porter.

Flavour is kind of bananaskinny and malty. It's ok though I do not really like it..!

Unknown vintage (old?); drank 11/25/14 @ the Yarchives.

Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Purple hue.

Tan head; minimal lace.

Black pepper & fresh bread nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Spicy black pepper, mild citrus & bread-y yeast flavors up front; cinnamon & caramel notes emerge as this warms. A black pepper bite settles on the lips over the course of the quaff. Not my favorite style/flavors, but complex & interesting enough to have again.

From the tap, it pours a coppery amber with a moderate head. The scent is relatively light with a touch of sweet malt. The taste is full of moderately sweet malt flavor, with a carbonation bite. Enjoyable.

Appearance: Copper color; great deal of particulate matter floating around; a khaki head that retains well, leaving a thin layer after ten minutes or so; some light lacing.

Aroma: creamy, sweet, almost like vanilla wafers, and maybe banana pudding. As the beer warms, I notice a pleasant fig note in the aroma.

Flavor: The flavor of this beer is the same as the aroma, yet it also introduces something new: a sweet & sour, tangy aspect, especially at the end of the sip. Some prune note in addition to the fig note. Slight bitterness in the middle of the taste.

Mouthfeel/finish: medium, lightly carbonated; semi-dry, crisp, pleasant.
