Appearance: a light brown to garnet color. a small foamy head that fades pretty quickly but leaves a lacing almost as strong as the original head. fairly dark but still shows some clarity and brightness in color. 3.75/5

Smell: slight roast, raisins, lots of phenols, some cloves. 3.25/5

Taste: opens up with creamy bready to darker caramel malts. raisins, hints of other dark fruits and spicy phenols. ends with a fairly acrid roasted taste. 3.25/5

Mouthfeel: creamy, but ends a bit bitter and dry. medium full mouth feel. 3.5/5

Overall: Its not bad to drink but far from what it should be. I don't enjoy the strength of the roastiness, or the power of the phenols. a bit bitter ending as well. not quite what I would look for as an abbey dubbel or even a more liberal interpretation of the style. but overall I'd say its still decent and drinkable.

Sampling a cellar temp 12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.
The beer pours a rich mahogany color with some garnet highlights on the edges when held up to the light. The color is darker than anticipated and actually has me more excited for the beer.
A frothy eggshell white head foams up .5 cm and fades to an edge layer pretty quickly after the pour.
The aroma is rich malt with toffee and brown sugar and some spicy hits as well. Light yeast notes and a little bit of dark fruit.
NO hints of the booze on the nose.
The first sip reveals an average body with very fine tingly carbonation. Texture is smooth and silky and coats my palate nicely after each sip.
Flavor is malty brown sugar and some spicy notes. Some dark fruit, with plums and raisin mixed in and then the finish dries out.
I do get just a little herbal tea hop note on the finish and just the faintest hit of peppery booze.
But this is a sweeter malt forward beer that is very enjoyable as I finish the bottle pretty quickly.
This is worth a shot and is interesting and not too complex.
