look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazed copper edged medium brown, one finger of dense white foam, spray of lace down the glass. Smell: faint caramel apple, nutty, crusty bread note. Taste: pear, caramel, allspice, mildly spicy with orange and mint notes. Sticky and spiced finish. Nose is really sparse and overall it's mediocre.

22 oz. bomber poured into a pint glass

L: Pours a reddish-copper color, with a 1-finger off-white head and good lacing.

S: Moderate nose with yeast and malt presence.

T/F: Nicely balanced flavor, with some fruit, nut and chocolate overtones and solid malt presence, which adds some sweetness. Smooth finish with a moderate amount of carbonation.

O: A little maltier than other dubbel's I've tried, but overall a very nice beer.

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.
