look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 4

Pours lightly hazy, dark brown-amber from a 22 oz bottle., Had a huge, medium density, tan head on top that settled fairly quickly.

Smell: Bready with dark fruits and subtle chocolate. [Served too cold, probably impairing the aroma and flavor.]

Taste: WAY more like a Belgian quad than expected, with a alcohol presence that seemed more like 9%. Also seemed more like a barrel-aged beer than one would expect. The apparent booziness is not unwelcome, and seems to add complexity, if perhaps overwhelming some more subtle flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium+ body with medium-high carbonation; harsh for style.

Overall: A pretty good, but not great, example of the dubbel style; Compared to a true Belgina dubbel, this one has a more intense flavor (more like a quad) and, perhaps, is slightly less aromatic.
