330ml bottle with a solid year of age on it. Served in a tulip at cellar temperature.

Deep auburn colour. Big spiky head dissipates quickly.

Dried fruit and some spicy yeast.

Flavour is on the thin side and I'm thinking I might have left this one to age a little bit too long. Some fig and rum-raisin gives way to spicy yeast.

Slightly watery.

I like this dubbel but suspect I might've let it age too long. I'll review again when I have a younger bottle on hand for comparison.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip.

L: Pours a clear dark mahogany color.. hints of crimson on the edges as I hold it up to the light. Two fingers of foamy tannish head fall quickly. Sticky lacing.

S: Candied sugars and ripe fruits.. vanilla bean.

T/F: Malts and toasted sugars... not as strong a sugar presence as you'd think from the nose. Dark fruits... cherries and raisins... finishes with some hop bitterness. Creamy and carbonated... better as it warms.

O: A solid dubbel from St. Bernardus, but it doesn't really hold a candle to their 'bigger' dubbel the Prior 8. It's a very good beer but suffers in comparison.
