A: 1 finger off white head. Copper to toffee color.

S: Rich caramel sweet, Belgian yeast and slight soy sauce.

T: Carmel and sweet. Just like it smells. Alcohol is not present in flavor.

M: Nice and full bodied.

O: Good dubbel but I think I'm not the biggest fan of the style. Gotta give it a few more times.

After a horrific episode with Alexander Keith's, I'm going to "dubbel" or nothing with Flying Fish. On to the beer:

Light chocolate brown with smudges of orange mixed in. The head forms ½ inch thick on top, but slowly dwindeles to a small lace. While mild, there is some good in the nose; raisins, vague chocolate, a pleasant fume of alcohol which gives it a wine-like character. There's also a noticable sour character that gives it an aroma similar to vomit.

Some pear and dates to start off the taste. Mild doses of chocolate covered raisin helps stave off mediocrity. The longer the sip, the more chocolatey it becomes. The body is light-medium and flabby.

Not bad, though very run-of-the-mill by dubbel standards.
