    ‎750ml cork bottle served in a snifter at around 12 degrees:

    Pours an opaque brown robe showing a timid reddish hue and a certain cloudiness. The hazel head seems creamy and finely structured. It develops great lacing and a good retention.

    The nose is sweet and complex with strong notes of plums, candied fruit and softer hints of cantaloupe or muskmelon and alcohol.

    On the tongue, this fine brew explodes into a wild and sweet mixture of milk chocolate, caramel, sugar cane, instant coffee and banana. It feels extra delicate and breaks down on the palate but still keeps its incredible density until it dissolves into a semi-dry finish.

    Awesome Belgian brew which represents insanely well what a Dubbel should be.
