this is like the quintessential beer of this style in my opinion

The Westmalle Dubbel pours with with a dark red burgundy color with a nice off white head. the nose opens up with your typical Belgian aroma dark fruits like dried plums and figs with the typical Belgian yeast. The taste is a bit more subtle the fruits are a bit on the wayside and the yeast is a bit more prominent. This is a very tasty beer the mouth feel and carb is right on i could probably put down a few of these

Whoa, contents erupted up bottle with removal of cap. Spewing head for around 1 minute. Not agitated, shook, etc. Really weird. Poured from bottle to goblet.

Appearance - Root beer like color. Can barely see through up to light. Half inch head, quickly dissipating. Beautiful lacing. Small amounts of sediment seen within.

Smell - Figs, caramel, and wheat evident. Smells of bread and a little bit of alcohol.

Taste - Really clean good taste. The figs come right out, and twiggy almost taste. It's a bit bitter but I like it a lot. Clean finish too.

Mouthfeel - Good mouthfeel, maybe a bit of a bite. Good carbonation.

Drinkibility - Is good, I wouldn't drink tons though, stomach ache for sure.

I like the Tripel more but great beer from Westmalle here.
