I read that it is supposed to be a belgian dubbel in style I really think it delivers on that promise. If you know what a dubbel is, you expect big malt flavors, a thickish mouth-feel and then fruity estery flavors from the yeast. So I was expecting a sweet, fruity strong beer that coated my mouth and got it. I like this beer, maybe I am forgiving, since no one else around here makes a dubbel, I have not compared it to my favorite in the style: St. Bernardus Pater 6. This one probably will not impress macro-lager drinkers, or the hop heads, but on a cold day, a strong malty brew like this is nice.
