Surprised by the relatively low rating on this, as it's a very drinkable dubbel. Nose may be a little on the muted side, but it at least carries a nice roasted malt. Taste is very nice though. Fig, banana influencing from the yeast and a nice roasted finish with an alcohol kick without an alcohol taste. Certainly better, way the hell better than an "80" would indicate!

Clear brown body, thin white head, some lacing. Nose is caramel, bread, and flavor add a bit of minerality. Feel is moderate, with good carbonation and drying close. A good Dubbel.

Very good beer. Feels and tastes a bit heavy but mild enough to make it easy to drink. Mild hop. Has Mixed flavors that combine very well. Strongly recommend it on tap. Light and day difference when it comes to bottle vs tap.

A little harsh on the back of the tongue but very drinkable.

From a 16-oz can it pours a brilliant, red-mahogany, with a 3/4 inch collar of tan foam that dissipates quickly. The nose suggests candy-sugar, caramel, yeast, raisins, clove, and wet metal. The body is a smooth, medium-light and provides a yeasty, fruit-cake, and slightly sour-noted lingering. The lingering is shorter than expected. There is some nice malty sweetness on the palate as well. The carbonation is light. No lacing to speak of.
