look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a large tulip glass.

A - Dark brown, thick tan head

S - Roasted malts

T - Dark roast malts, sweet toffee and dark coffee, finishing with woody/smokey hops

M -Medium to light body, decent carbonation

O - Overall quite nice, though I think I've had more complex, well-crafted dubbels. Certainly a beer I would drink again though, any day.

A - Pours a dark amber body with reddish hues. Slightly off-white head with medium retention. Lacing is present but minimal.

S - Deep, toasty aroma of malts. Complex undertones of chocolate and caramel. Fruity esters are mild, with hints of cherry and raisins. Alcohol presence is faint, but noticable.

T - Complex malts greet the palate but finish is surprisingly dry with minimal bitterness; balance surprisingly not completely skewed towards malt. Dried fruitiness and phenols complimentary to one another, with raisiny character being most predominant. Noble hop flavor is subdued.

M - Medium-full body with lots of carbonation. Slight warming of alcohol present.

O - A great example of a matly, complex, strong Belgian dubbel.
