Had this when it first came out and was impressed. This one's for the review.
FWIW, the newer label has this beer listed at 8% alc.

Served chilled and poured into a 25cl Brasserie de l' Abbeye des Rocs chalice.

Appearance is good. Brick red/brown colored beer with a decent but not fantastic head. Beautiful and inviting color

Smell is very good. Complex nose. Nutty yeast aroma with dark fruity malts. Very pleasing.

Taste is very good. Dark malts, nuts and a slight bubble gum flavor at the back end. Some earthiness. Not as complex as the nose and quite mild for the style but finishes quite well without any cloying-ness.

Mouthfeel is good. Carbonation is above average and a little prickly but fits well with the style.

Drinkability is very good. An easy to drink dubbel that is a joy to put down.

Overall: One of the better American made dubbels. Recommended.
