Poured from a personally hand carried bottle from Brugges, Belgium. Bought at a bottle shop after touring Brouwerij Straffe Hendrik / De Halve Maan and stored for 1 year at room temperature. Bottle marked to drink by April '09.

Aroma: Slightly alcoholic, nice malt character and the typical dark fruits common to these Dubbels.

Appearance: Poured into my Brugge Zot tall glass with about a 1+ inch tan head. Great head retention, it actually never left and at the end the glass was coated in foam. Quite a dark brown beer, with hints of red.

Flavor: Raisin, prune, plum and toasty malts. Can taste the alcohol but not overpowering. Overall excellent flavor.

Mouthfeel: While dry from the alcohol and possible low finishing gravity the texture of this beer is very nice coating your mouth with a smooth feeling.

Overall I loved this beer. It's much better than their pale, although I enjoyed that one both on location in Belgium as well as on draft at the Liar's Club in San Diego (how the hell does he get kegs like that!?)
This dubbel is a great example of the style though, and if you ever visit the wonderful little brewery (last remaining brewery in Brugges) you'll be a fan for life.

Bottle Inspection: notes 7.5% abv. and clearly notched with June 09 (sampled Feb 07). Sent to me by markmeadows57 (former BA).

Aroma: Some roasted malt, lightly perfumed alcohol and light hints of wet wood.

Appearance: Impressive head, tan and tight, held to a good half finger after a minute and left big loops of thick lace. Glass is ruby brown with back light showing excellent clarity.

Flavor: Rich rum soaked dark fruit. Figs, raisins, some toasted malt and black bready yeast. Really nice stuff

Mouthfeel: Creamy texture, dry alcoholic evaporative finish

Overall Impression: Massively enjoyable. Body vanishes at the sip, but the flavor lingers on the palate. Really nice beer. Thanks Mark!
