12 oz bottle poured to tall tulip. Hazy dark brown with a very tall, coarse, bubbly head. Aromas of yeast and spice. Taste is spice and brown sugar. Mouth feel is semi-dry, medium body, high carbonation. Overall, true to style and a well crafted double....I'm just not a big fan of spiced beers.

On tap at Das Biergarten. Hazy amber body. Smells bready, sweet caramel malts, strong and fruity yeast aromas. Tastes of bready, sweet malts, red apples, banana, spice, and a sharp yeasty back end. Medium bodied. Dry, so it doesn’t feel that heavy. Excellent, as always.

Beautiful brown, cloudy color with big head. Aroma of bread and spices. Flavors of bread, yeast, bits of chili and complex spices, a savory touch and a hint of chocolate. Plenty of carbonation to go around. Great creamy feel, medium thickness. Plenty of yeast at the bottom for a finishing prize. Fantastic beer.

It pours brown and with a creamy tan head of a seriously ridiculously long retention and amazing lacing. The aroma is of Belgian yeast and it's very fruity. Some mild notes of blueberry. Sweet and spicy and not boozy at all. There's a light bitterness at the end. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. This is one amazing beer.

From Saveur Biere. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Los Soprano 6x03. Caramel with a pleasant effervescence and a nice warming feeling. A good dubbel but not something amazing like their tripel

L - Huge, rocky, lumpy, off-white head floating on top of the beer with the color of old varnish. Concentrated nucleation point for the carbonation was hypnotic.
S - Dried fruit with hints of leather
T - Pretty straight forward "Belgian" flavor - run cake with characteristic spice and a little alcohol heat and banana at the end.
F - The bitterness created a pronounced salivary response after swallowing.
O - Very good but lacks the depth to be great.

Murky brownish color with off-white head. Aroma has mostly brown sugar and belgian yeast with a hint of dried fruits. Taste is quite balanced, slightly sweet at first but balances out towards the finish. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Overall it's a tasty, well balanced belgian ale.

Looks as lovely as all the other Unibroue offerings I've tried: hazy golden orange, robust natural carbonation, a three-finger pillowy white head, decent lacing, and great retention. Mild caramely and pilsnery malts on the nose, along with a strong doughy sweetness. Tastes like a farmhouse ale but with darker roasted malts. Very smooth, no weird aftertaste, well-balanced flavors.... there's not really much to complain about with this brew.

Tasting sample from tap at double wide grill, South side, Pittsburgh. Not familiar with this style, but I did appreciate it. Maybe in the future I will try some others in this style.
