Hazy brown color with a thick beige head with medium retention.
Aroma with lots of prunes, brown sugar, grapes, apple puree, mild clove and mint.
Flavor with notes of prunes, spicy hops, cinnamon, ginger, Brazilian guarana, grape juice, chocolate and nuts. Dry aftertaste with a low bitterness.
Medium body with velvety carbonation of tiny bubbles. Alcohol of 6.5% is completely absent.
Initially spicy Dubbel that becomes chocolaty with lots of prunes. Pleasant, average complexity and flavor intensity.

Pours a dark brown and leaves the same color body with a two finger white foamy head, not much lacing is seen; the aroma has some nutty super malty and rich, lotsa brown sugar coming through; the taste is super malty sweet kinda like "brown sugar candy with a malty aftertaste and finish; its pretty easy on the palate could be construed as a bit thin, but still good, carbonation is soft; overall, I say still a good beer worthy of coming back to.

A bargain beer, and a reasonably solid beverage. A slight vinegar aroma, which also lingers in the after taste. A Brun, but a bit wishy washy to look at, with a sharp fizz on the tongue. You won't be getting too sozzled on this one, and there are much better beers to consume, but for the price worth sticking a few in the cellar for a winters day by the fire.

Look: 3.25
Hazy dark copper color. 2-finger head. Not much carbonation. The foam fades quite quickly. There is a slight red hue.

Smell: 3.75
Sweet caramel and toffee. Also graham cracker and roasted malt.

Taste: 4
Slight hoppiness at first (hardly noticeable), but then jumps right into caramel and toffee. Very sweet. Starts to get a bit nutty and roasted malts apparent. Belgian yeast tang is not strong, but makes itself known.

Feel: 3.75
Fairly full / upper medium body. Even through seems to go flat, still enough carbonation on the tongue.

Overall: 3.75
It was decent. Not my favorite of this style and there are better ones out there. It is quite sweet.
