The pour was a murky dark brown with a slight reddish hue and an average (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head, which reduced down to a medium film and collar with excellent sheeting of lacing.
The aroma was strong of a musty Belgian yeast and a toasted grain malt with notes of toffee, dark fruit (dates and figs) and a mild medicinal odor.
The taste was a tad sweet with a nice malty feel, a hint of toffee and a slight chocolate presence from the start, becoming ever so lightly bitter with a good sweet yeast taste and a note of dark fruit and a slight medicinal flavor right at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a dry, bitter and slightly fruity taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was medium in body with a dry, creamy texture and a ticklish carbonation.
Overall this was a decent enough Dubbel, which was rich and creamy and had a nice bold yeasty taste. Although I did think it was a bit over carbonated, it did still possess a smooth and satisfying drinkability...
