750ml
Caged/Corked
Bottled Conditioned

This bottle could have over 2 years on it.

Poured into a chalice a pretty nice light brown color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice one-finger plus creamy/foamy off-white head, which leaves a pretty nice small island and some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, yeasty, with some nice grapes, apples notes. The taste is malty, slightly yeasty, with some fruity notes, sweet, slightly bitter. Medium body, ABV is hidden very well. Overall, this is a nice take on the style.

Bristol Belgian dubbel from a 750ml bottle.
Looks as expected.
Aroma is OK. Flavor too, although lacking in complexity.
Improved with a little warming.

Poured a reddish copper body with a thick, sticky, chunky white head; lots of rings down the glass. Sweet, fruity aroma with hints of cloves, cinnamon, and caramel malts. Good malt flavor with an expressive but unobtrusive bitterness; a bit boozy; hints of raisin. Medium body; sugary smooth.

An excellent offering from Bristol Brewing. They appear to have locked into a classic dubbel style and characteristics. Well-balanced overall with an easy complexity that draws you into an enjoyable Belgian-style beer experience.
