A nice murky brown beer with an off white head. The smell is caramel, dark fruit, apples and yeast. The taste is sweet with caramel apples and yeast with a peppery and mildly bitter finish. Great carbonation adds to the peppery effect as it stings the tongue a bit. Love this one.

Red maroon with a moderate beige head that dies down to a ring.

Smell is nutty, with raisin, and coffee.

Immediately warming on the palate, this Dubbel is surprisingly nutty, with a lot of notes of coffee and chocolate blending well with the yeast to help smooth the flavor and finish. I also get some sweet caramel, wood notes and tea.
