look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle with a trappiste bier glass ring around the neck into a Chimay goblet. Good appearance....murky, mahogany brown color...big delicately bubbling antique white head with good enough retention for a strong beer.

Smell is a bit weak, some bready malts and dark fruit...nothing outstanding. Taste is better. A bit more complex. The breadiness and dark fruit (plums, raisins) are still prominent but the yeast is noticable and there is a bit of spiciness (black pepper) as well.

Mouthfeel is rich...what you would expect in a Dubbel. Overall, a good beer but a bit restrained. I don't see it as a top 100 Beer of Fame beer.
