Having this on-tap at the brewery. Served in a tulip glass, this beer draws a clear, medium to dark amber/copper color with a nice film layer of surface foam along with a thick ring lining the inside of the glass. Not too much lacing. Aromas of toasted, bready caramel malt sweetness with some fruit hunts of plum and figs and a bit of candy sugars. Taste is pretty much the same, with toasted, bready, caramel malt sweetness along with some dark fruit notes of fig and plum along with a hint of spice and a slight additional sweetness that I think comes from Belgian candy sugars. Not really any discernible hop presence. Has a crisp, yet smooth and slightly frothy, medium to full bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean, slightly dry finish with a sweet aftertaste. Very drinkable in a good way.

Although I've driven by the place a number of times in the last year (they are at the end of my son's street), I can't remember the last Bottlehouse I had. This one doesn't make me want to run there again, though, as it is good but not great.

It pours flat and clear brown with no sediment. The aroma is yeasty funky. The taste is dark, malty, yeasty. The aftertaste is clean, for the style, but the usual thickness you expect from a dubbel.

Not recommended - I don't know how much this cost, but I think it was a poor value - lots of other examples of the style are better and not necessarily pricey. Some of this brewer's other efforts are much better.
