Nose: raisins, raisin bread with prunes and dates in-between. Chewy in the front, tart and tannic along the edges. Molasses and brown sugar melted together.
Palate: tart, meaty, and sour – plums and raisins. Meaty earthiness of more prunes and raisins, both golden and dark. Grows leather and earth as it warms, tart tannic grape skins along the edges. Shoestrings? Medium to medium-light weight with a very clean mouthfeel.
Final Thoughts: intriguing to say the least and definitely tasty. A stand-out Belgian inspired dubbel…maybe not. What I really enjoyed was what the raisins offered.
