On tap.
Looks a clear amber brown with a thick tan head.
Smell and taste are good, though the aromas are not that strong. Belgian candi sugar, sweet raisin and cherry and caramel.
Feels smooth and sweet. Caramel sweetness in the body is followed with a somewhat drier finish.

Pretty good!

Man I remember this beer from back in the day when I thought BevMo was the most badass beer retailer around (i.e. the late 90s). Pours out a dark red and brown color, 1/3" off white head. Aroma of sweet oktoberfest like malts, marzeny and shit then a wave of mild dark, not overripe fruits.

Taste is relatively easy going, like an amber ale with a mild belgian yeast. Pretty approachable really. Has a bitterness that isn't from the hops but from that yeast that keeps dropping dark fruit references around your mouth. There is even some brown malt like dry chocolate in the mouth feel at the tail end.

I guess this one is balanced, the yeast isn't too pungent, the sweetness and dark fruit bitterness notes temper one another. Decent stuff, although its usually more than $10 a six pack.

Belgian dubbed ale. Pours a dark brown with fine lacing start to finish. Medium to light body and carbonation.Toasty, malty, caramel, spices, chocolate, and coffee overtones: nothing overbearing, more hints and whispers in its presentation. Pairs well with a variety of foods, especially pub styles. 6.5% ABV.

330 ml bottle - pours dark amber-brown with a substantial meringue tan cap - aromas are spicy, toffee, toasted grains and light leafy grassiness, some fusel is detectable. Rounded mellow character - flavor is toasty with light caramel tones some hazel nut, just enough hops in the background to avoid sweetness becoming prominent, clean toasty lightly bitter finish - tasty satisfying

On tap, lovely chalice pour. Hazey reddish brown with a retentive, tan head.

Smells fruity with some light wisps of bread and chocolate. Bright and lively for the style.

Tastes quite nice, almost everything I look for in a dubbel. Plums and raisins in the front, more fruit and some bready yeast, finishing with refreshing fruit and some dry yeast.
