When poured it was a medium dark brown with loads of off white foam. The smell was of roasted malts and hops. The flavor was of toasty toffee/caramel with soft malts and hops. Well balanced and very pleasant to the palate. In the end, this dubbel was darkm full-bodied with hints of toffee.

Poured from an 11.2 oz. bottle into a snifter.

Pours a dark brown/mahogany with a one and a half finger tan head that dissipates to a thin coating. A good swirl gives it a one finger head again though.

Aroma of dark fruit, funky belgian yeast, and spice.

Flavors of dark fruit - particularly black cherries, spice, and the regular yeasty flavors.

Mouthfeel is medium, high carbonation level as most Belgians typically are.

I thought that this was pretty good, but not really exceptional. Certainly not as good as the Gulden Draak that I tried earlier.

Enjoyed in a chalice

A: pours a clear light brown with a slight amner hue and a few carbonation bubbles, pours with a finger of coffee colored head that dissipates rapidly and leaves silky lacing all around the glass
S: sweet malts and dark fruits
T: nice smooth taste, dark fruits are pronounced in the front, a slight sweetness and nuttiness hit in the middle, leaves a taste of dark fruits on the palate
M: gentle carbonation, silky and leaves a bit of a burnt feeling on the palate
O: a nice dubbel, pretty well rounded, best ive ever had? No, still good tho
