11.2oz bottle best by 14.01.20. Pours a dark brown with a finger of off-white head. Smells of dried fruit, malt, and molasses. Medium feel with plenty of carbonation. Tastes of dark fruit with a little bit of spice and some floral hops. Very good.

Deep brown color with a voluminous soapy head. Aroma is surprisingly sweet - lots of grape must, black currants, blackberry, wet fig - tremendous fruity esters tempered by some dry yeast & loam.

Taste is a little huskier, and certainly dials-in on those classic dark fruit phenols - raisin, date, etc. It is well-balanced with some chewy amber malt & more of that drier yeast / hay flavor underneath. Everything as you'd expect but it is the balance that makes it a classic - lots of dubbels just crank up those phenols, the expression of the yeast / malt on this beer is the real treat. A little boney on the finish but that is a nitpick.
