This beer pours a very dark coffee color with a tan head, two finger-widths high. Tons of lacing with this beer.

The beer presents a very complex bouquet with aromas of rich malt, chocolate, raisin, and oak.

The initial taste presents the rich malty flavor, and then it immediately warms to present the hints of chocolate and then some sweetness of the alcohol followed by the raisin. The beer finishes with a deep smokey flavor as it warms on the tongue.

The mouthfeel is heavy at first, but gives way to a crisp finish as the alcohol warms on the tongue.

Overall, this is a great example of the dubbel style that will not disappoint you.

A very drinkable belgian dubble, Smells like chocolate covered cherries. Has a dark brownish red color with a thick tan head. Taste is very strong of chocolate covered cherries. This beer is oh so smooth and thick. This beer is undeniably drinkable. 1 could pick up a bottle and drink it all evening while enjoying sitting in front of the fire or watching something on AMC or TCM

Again terrible review, port flavors, very grapy, a bunch of raisin, and a complexity that is unmatched, beautiful and amazingly delicious, next time I have something good to smoke this may be on the top of my list. Can't wait to make some money, this will be the first expensive 4-pack I'll go after, can not say enough. Best tasting brown ale that I have had to date.

For some reason this one always seems to hit the spot for me. I love how all the ingredients mix so well to create this fabulous belgian beer. Quite sweet with various malts. Lots of plums, raisins and other fruit in it. Tarty apples are apparent. A slight alcohol comes in the middle providing me with a comfortable warming sensation. The Belgian yeast is noticeable throughout and really makes for an interesting, if not great, mouthfeel. This is my comfort beer.

A: Pours clear but dark brown in color, with a one-finger, foamy, brownish-white head, which settled reasonably quickly (but a bit too much carbonation?)

S: Complex, and fruity, and very (very) inviting.

T: Almost sweet, yet rounded out by a tinge of bitterness - a very balanced taste.

M: Medium to full-body.

D: Very enjoyable drink.

Bottle into snifter glass.

A: Poured a deep, dark brown, close to cola black and had a thin tan head. Not much light gets through this drink, but appeared lightly carbonated.

S: Wow! Amazingly rich of roasted nuts and coffee, some hints of dark chocolate and caramel. Very malty, heavy nose.

T: Very complex flavor. Slightly chewey with a small hoppy bite up front. After that, a very warming to the tongue blend that's quite nutty and malty. Has some accents of oakiness and dark chocolate. The feeling of the alcohol comes and goes in each sip.

M: I was surprised at how light in body this beer is. Very smooth and warming, leaves a slightly dry finish.

D: Dangerously drinkable at 7.5 ABV, I could enjoy this for a long time. Don't drink too many at once though, you'll start to feel it. Highly enjoyable.
