look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

11.2oz bottle. Best before 5th of July, 2014. Served in a tulip glass

Appearance: Pours a dark reddish brown with 2 fingers of a light tan head with good retention. Body is murky.

Smell: Dark fruit (raisin in particular), candi sugar, red apple, with some slight spicy belgian yeast character.

Taste: Same as the nose with dark fruits and apple. There's a toasty breadiness as well (like a bread crust). More apple and apple skin in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Carbonation is high but still maintains a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Alcohol is hidden well.

Overall: This is an excellent dubbel. Every bit as good as Westy 8, yet cheaper and easier to get.
