Nice pop of the cork on this one. You would think I would have popped a bottle of bubbly. :frank:Pours nicely, kind of a crazy head on it though. Not sure if that type of head is typical of the style. Nice thick, creamy, dense head. Had to wait a few minutes for it to die down before I could top off my glass. Nice aroma, not too heavy on any particular scent. Smelled nice and balanced.First sip, and wow. This is a big flavored beer. Definitely need to drink it cold and don't let it warm up too much. The flavors get a little over the top as is warms. I can't for the life of me describe the flavor. Definitely has that Belgian taste in a big way, but also the Maltiness is up there too. I think I'm tasting a lot of heavy Crystal malt.I'll give it 4 out of 5 stars for a Belgian Dubbel, but I'm not well experienced in the Belgian's yet. I'm working on it though. :)

This is crazy talk. One of my top 10 or so favorite beers.Try it again after you've tried some more dubbels. It's an unusual one, but so good.
