Good to be venturesome.
I'd like to think my taste buds are open-minded enough to allow interpretation of the Belgian masters. But, this ale defies me getting close to it... and I wish I could explain why.
Maybe I'm used to bigger doses of brown sugar. Maybe a small tweak gives me a "That's it."
I should not intellectualize the subtlety of taste.

Listed in the "1001".

Bottle to tulip glass, clear brown color, medium off white head. Aroma is fig, cranberry, clove, apple, brandy. Very nice warming smells. Taste is yeasty, wangy, but tasty. Also light winter Spices and ash. Feel is a bit flat. Side by side with ff grand cru.

Dark copper to amber in color with a fingernail of tan covering the majority of the middle of the glass. Aroma is of sweet moderately dark malt and caramel. The flavor closely mimics the aroma and is sweet dark malt and caramel. I also detect hazelnuts and raisins. The mouth is moderately chewy lightly warm with alcohol.

Dark ruby with white head. Nose of fruits, nuts and malt. Tastes of dark fruits, banana and some sweet malt. Low on bitterness, if any at all. Light body.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 7.2% abv

Appearance- Pours a dark brown with a ruby tint. Two finger head fast to dissipate. Pretty clear.

Smell- Sweet sugary malt. Hints of Belgian yeast. Dark fruit.

Taste- Belgian-esque yeast blends with the sugary taste. Big notes of dark fruit like plums and some licorice flavor. Some grassy hoppiness taking to a slightly roasted grain finish.

MOuthfeel- Medium in body. Mild carbonation. Smooth

Overall- A good take on a dubbel. Had the key elements of this style. An easy drinking version.

-Dark brown, semi clear, almost purplish hue
- spice, belgian yeast, alcohol, licorice, plum
- immediately there's like a cake spice, think carrot cake, anise, raisin, plum, estery yeast, char grain
-Easy drinking, somewhat creamy

-the beer that got me into belgian styles. Great beer.

Quite amazing, *complete* beer. Roasted Malt, cake-like bread, and toffee come together to make one of the most complete beer's I've ever tasted.

I call it "Chocolate cake in a glass"
