Poured out a brown, cocoa colored liquid. 1/4" tan head, spotty lacing around the glass as the liquid was consumed.

A chocolate aroma first and foremost. Actually that was all there was, which is fine.

Taste, mmm, more chocolate and cocao. For a dubbel, I like far more than the average one. Dry, like cocao powder was used moreso than sweet chocolate. Not sugary. Smooth experience. Dark fruit aspect is minimal, yet not overwhelmed by the cocoa. The minimal yeast contribution is very mild, nothing in terms of clove or banana are on it, which is a good thing. It has a very mild chocolate bubble gum contribution. Mild toasted grains.

I'd consider myself a fan, and would drink again.
