look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Aroma: Wonderful pronounced fruity esters of plum, raisins, and grape jam. Some pepper and clove spiciness that is also in the forefront. No hop aroma.

Appearance: Slightly hazy ruby colored pour with brick edging. Sticky moderate tan head with good retention and lacing.

Flavor: Strong clove phenols with background melon esters. Pepper spiciness as in the aroma. Some background white bread crust maltiness. Low toasty flavors provide a nice base. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is lingering with pepper spiciness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. No alcohol heat.

Overall impression: A highly drinkable complex Dubbel. A wonderfully complex beer that has all the classic elements of a Belgian Dubbel. Seek out.

Poured from a brown 25.4 oz. bottle. Has a pretty bronze color with a 1 inch head. Smell is dominated by fruits. Taste is very good, lots of dark fruits, alcohol is well hidden, yeast with, lots of flavor, scary how easy drinking this is. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a top notch beer.
