Color is like iced tea. Taste is like a subtle dark ale. Very well balanced. Not too sweet which I like. No heavy taste of alcohol. Tamarind flavor. Not trying too hard. Enjoyed it very much.

L: gives of a a dark brown color, gives of a small top of head that frankly disolves to quickly , decent lacing on the glas

S: the yeast is very dominant , i also can sense dark fruits like plum,raisin,dates , i also hint banana,caramel malts and burned sugar, a very sweet note on the aroma

T&F : Much as the smell , very first taste, the dark fruits is the first i notice,very sweet notes in the taste , aftertaste is slightly bitter aand i also think the malts make this one exiting .Gives of a immediatelly warnin feeling in the first sip.A very good balanced taste

O: A good dubbel but far from extrordinary, an enjoyable beer and easy drinking. It sure is better belgian beers out there but this sure did the job. I would sure try it again if i get the chance
But i could sure drink this again if i got the chance

On draft into a snifter. A dark clear brown with a thin head and beautiful lacing. A rich malty smell with a smooth, full feel. It's taste has a strong toasted malt flavor, with caramel. Tastes like an "imperial" brown ale. Enjoyed it!
