Dark brown pour with slight brown top. No lacing. Aromas of sweet malt and slight astringency. Flavor is somewhat watery, but pleasant. Lots of malt and some hop balance. Finish is similar. Very drinkable.

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.

Dark mohagony with a full head of foam that retains well and leaves nice lacing. Smell of hop and caramel. Primary flavours in the taste are caramel, milk chocolate and dark fruits, but there are also hints of hops, smoke, bacon and red wine. A nice complexity. A dubbel that tends to lean more to bitter than the sweet side. Mouth feel is smooth and full.

6,5% ABV.
Poured into tulip.
Pours almost opaque dark brown beer with thick beige head, excellent retention.
Smell - outstanding and clean aroma of spices and dark fruits.
Taste - roasted, dark fruits, candy sugar, nice spiciness (coriander).
Medium body, good carbonation.
Balance tends to perfection, modern dubbel with some witbier characters.
