New to reviewing, but I had to say this about this beer....WOW!!!! I was given a bottle and now I can't wait to find more. Definitely the best beer I have ever tried and the one thing that I can say to describe this lucious nectar is "BALANCE"

This beers a big yeast bomb thats for sure. Loudest crackling I've ever heard from a beer. Dark hazy brown in color with a massive cinnamon colored head which slowly recedes to a thick sticky lace.

Big nose with lots of phenolic scents and sweet dark fruits. Some banana and clove on the back end of the nose with a big alcohol presence as well. Dieing to try it however it probably should warm a few degrees first.

This is a serious beer. Loads of caramel and brown sugar on the tip of the tongue. Big chewy mouth feel which drys out around mid way. Bizarre phenomenon in my mouth right now and loving it. Lots of spiciness on the tongue as well. Layers of sweet and herbal flavors that are so beautifully blended. None of the flavors battle each other for dominance, it's just a beautiful crescendo of taste on the tip of the tongue.

Incredibly dry finish rounds this beer out with nothing to complain about except not having enough of this beer.

I'm glad this opened my eyes to what dubbels should really be.
