Dark brown color with ruby hues and a frothy tan head. Aroma has dried fruits like dark, bitter cherries, raisins, some yeast esters and brown sugar on top. Taste has toasted malt, some burnt sugar, dried dates, raisins, some wood barrel notes, light wine tartness, some earthy bitterness on the finish. Medium to light body, medium plus carbonation. Quite complex yet easy drinking with a well hidden ABV.

Picked this up at a small drink shop in Belgium. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a quickly fading one finger beige head with minimal lacing. The nose is earthy and sweet with hints of dark fruits, leather, brown bread, and subtle port. The taste follows suit with lots of dark fruit along with hints of leather, black cherries, subtle cocoa, tobacco, and sweet port. The mouthfeel is syrupy and sweet with medium carbonation and a dry, sweet finish. Overall, this is way too sweet for my taste. A neat idea that just didn't work for me...

A dark brown beer with a settling head.

The smell has dark malts and a distinct red fruit smell. The added port has a fruity, cherry smell.

The taste is complex, with red fruits, cherry, strawberries but also some oak and alcohol. The beer is very warming. The mouthfeel is a little sharp. The combination of the dubbel and port is a good one, but the beer needs a little aging.

4.3/5  rDev +12.9%

A - Pours deep brown-red, near black with a light tan head that lingers a short time

S - Coffee, strong red fruits (cherries come to mind) aroma

T - Dark chocolate, oak, sweet cherries and a boozey finish

M - medium thick, decent carbonation gives it a very smooth mouthfeel

O - Overall I really like this beer; the dubbel and port combination works great for a very warming, sweet-ish dessert experiences, without being overpoweringly sweet

Dark brown with silky beige head. Aroma is dried fruit, wood, chocolate. Taste is spicy and tangy, more candy chocolate, raisins, and coriander. Tingly palate.
