Pours dark brown with a very small head.
Nose shows coffee and caramel in massive quantities along with chocolate notes. Pretty awesome.
More coffee as flavours along with an acidic note and a hit of chocolate. The acidic note is misplaced.
Very low carbonation, needs much more. Feels watery.

A 'Belgian coffee dubbel' brewed for the GABS Festival in Melbourne. Tried there on tap.

Pours a mahogany colour, quite pale really, with off-white head, fairly foamed out but dissipates quickly. OK I guess.

Smells very coffee-esque. Massive spicy espresso with some sweet cinnamon notes possibly from yeast esters. Complex, spicy, interesting, pleasant.

Caramel malt character upfront, not too sweet but with a hint of residual sugar, then develops spicy coffee notes towards the back with a touch of licorice and some decent Belgian phenols late. Coffee is a lot subtler on the palate than on the nose. It's certainly not worse off for it, though. Great drop.

Body is disappointingly thin and flat. No real texture to it and no real mouth presence. A shame, really.

Actually surprisingly enjoyable beer. The coffee and the Belgian phenols are merged together really nicely to produce a very interesting after-dinner-style brew.
