Pours a clear amber red with some alright head that eventually fades to nothing. Has some raisin and brown sugar notes. Some sharp alcohol in the nose as it warms . Also has some slight chewy caramel malts. Little to no hop aroma. Tastes similar to nose with medium to full mouthfeel. Flavors also give hints of fig and dark fruits (plum, dark cherry). Average bitterness for the style with a slight bite at the tail end. Overall, a very nice beer. Solid and very drinkable.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a hazy brownish-copper hue with a thin 2-finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves a wispy lace.

S: Sweet Belgian yeast aroma with a fruity background.

T: Sweet malty Belgian yeast flavor that turns tart and finished on the dry side.

M: Full body and medium carbonation.

O: This is a solid dubbel. Complex flavors and aromas.

Poured a almost clear amber brown. Not much of a bubbly white head, dissipates fast with minimal lacing.
The smell is just some malt, not much else.
Thank goodness, the taste is better. Nice combination of dark fruit, brown sugar and malt. Some earthy hops balance the palette.
Nice prickly mouthfeel, and very drinkable. A nice beer, maybe not exactly the style.

Had this at Cloverleaf Tavern in West Caldwell.

A: Pours a dark red, mahagany body with a small, white head with some lacing and minimal retention overall.

S: A lightly, sweet toffee smelling beer, but nothing too overbearing.

T: A pretty smooth, sweet grape juice tasting beer with some subtle vanilla notes and hint of toffee and sweet alcohol in the aftertaste.

M: A pretty thin but fairly decent mouthfeel. Pretty nice on the palette overall.

D: A decent mouthfeel and taste combination made for a pretty nice drinking beer. Mouthfeel could have been a bit smoother, but overall, pretty good drinking beer with some warming alcohol.

#BOTG 76!

Poured from bottle into New Belgium tulip glass. Pours a dirty brown rain water color, very little head retention. some head pools into the middle of the glass. I guess it looks like a Dubbel, but not one of the better examples. Smell- caramel syrup, raisins, a buttery aroma as well. Decent, but points detracted because it reminds me of what melted milk drops smell like when in a movie theater next to buttery popcorn. Chemically in some ways. Taste- chocolate cherry cough syrup. raisins, butter. This is a stylistic miss, and the chemically syrupy nature of this is present even more. This is not a good dubbel, below average. Mouthfeel is syrupy thick. Not good. This would be a strike out.
