On tap at Vintage's downtown outpost.
Served in an extremely heavy goblet with a minimal amount of light tan head. No lacing. Clear, dark brown. Aroma is all malt. Raisin, toffee and lots of dark caramel malt. Taste is more of the same. Very sweet dark caramel malt. A hint of chocolate. Molasses, raisin and bit of a woodsy-earthiness on the back end. Maybe a bit of yeast-derived spice, but not much. Heavier bodied. Lower carbonation. A bit harsh and abrasive in the mouth quite uncommon among Belgian-made dubbels. A decent beer if not an overly impressive one.

Pours deep brown with ruby hues. The head doesn't last long. Minimal trailing lace slides down the glass.

The smell is of brown sugar, cotton candy, caramelized banana and a hint of sugarplum.

The taste is of sweet medium to dark malt, sugar, cotton candy/bubblegum, raisins (hint of black cherry as it warms). The sweetness is balanced by a semi-dry finish.

It doesn't have quite the same carbonation as some of the classics from Belgium, but does the job well enough. It does have a smoothness in the texture.

A nice, complex interpretation of the style! Well-done!
