Good malt and chocolate base. Taste is crisp as I anticipated. All in all a slightly above average beer.

On tap @ the source.

A: Pours a dark amber with crimson highlights under a one-inch thick off-white/light tan head which leaves splotches and spots of lace.

N: Caramel malts, grainy, faint roast, mild dark fruits.

T: Dark fruits (raisin, figs, dates), mild yeast, roasty malts, faint esters.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes smooth with yeast and malt and dark fruity esters.

O: Identified as an "Abbey Dubbel" on the board. Fairly unremarkable.
