A: Poured into a Straffe Hendrik tulip glass and came out a hazy amber to brown color and created a sizable head--say two to three inches. Strong lacing.

S: A strong smell of sweet fruits.

M: A thick but not overwhelming feel in the mouth.

T: Significant carbonation. Medium to heavy bodies. A sweet fruity finish.

D: The alcohol is very well masked--any limit on drinkability is because of the relative body of the drink.

Has a best buy stamp of 19/09/09. Pours a hazy dark brown color with a fine-bubbled tan foam. Not much in the way of head retention or lacing surprisingly.

Nose is dark fruits galore with a backing of caramel and cocoa maltiness. There is some bread dough in there as well. Smells good and tasty.

Taste leans toward the fruity end of the spectrum with lots of strawberries, bing cherries and blackberries. Malts are light and airy with some burnt toast and caramel flavors...really not very sweet at all. Minor complaint is that it is not very creamy and even feels a bit thin. This one goes down way too easy though, the alcohol is barely even detectable. It's like a Belgian session beer! Very Good.

Very nice all around, this pours a hazy, very dark mahogany with massive pillow of tan foam that grows for several minutes following the pour. Aromas are yeasty, slightly sweet ripened fruits, and some bread malt. Flavor is similar though less sweet than expected. Very balanced with an earthiness in the middle and a slightly dry finish. Great dubbel, but didn't blow me away in any particular regard.
