22 oz bottle.
A nice, well-balanced dubbel with a seemingly rather minimal impact from the figs although there is a load of dark fruit flavor here.

O: recommended

Pours an effervescent orange-hued brown with a pinky of tan head, Stellar lacing above average head retention

S: Faint breadyness, figgyness

T: Follows the nose some rubberband, plus a little dryness. plus a little herbal & woody hops up front. Herbal & woody hops mixes with green apple & faint raisin notes as this warms. Finishes with a little fig, raisin, woodiness & just a little candi sugar, a little rubberband

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation that picks up as it warms

A pretty good shot at the style, not quite there, but would recommend this to a person checking out the style, if they they couldn't access the standard Belgians that define the style

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

medium amber appearance, small offwhite head.

smell: some malts and caramel, strong fruit/fig

taste: intitially ok although not very complex. Then finish has a slightly sour fermented taste that to my palate is distinctly unpleasant. I've had many Belgian style dubbels and quads with dried fruits and other flavorings. This is a drainpour.
