Taster at brewery. Hazy copper color, creamy head, lacing in spades. Soft aroma, pit fruit, plums. Taste is malty, dry, leather. Initial sweetness fades to musty. Dry, chalky finish.

I had this beer on-tap in a tulip at the brewery.

Appearance: rich dark amber with practically no haze. Head is a finger of creamy ivory foam. Great!

Smell: caramelly, bready and biscuity. About what I expect from the style.

Taste: biscuity and bready as a dubbel usually is. I mean, it's perfectly to style, but ... it's still a dubbel.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: it's good for a dubbel, but I'm still not totally on board.
