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.

Poured into chalice. A Belgian ale with no head? Spots of lace. Nice ruby brown shade.

Nose is mostly grape, with some other dark fruits and underlying breadiness.

Taste: A dry bitterness over dark fruit, particularly figs. Notes of bitter chocolate and honey.

Mouth is a little thin, with some alcohol bite.

A fruitier dubbel, generally smooth and drinkable.

Aroma is chocolate/cocoa, caramel malts and mild fruit. The flavor is fruit/berries, chocolate, caramel/malts and a mix of tart and sweet in the finish.
