Beer Tasting: Affligem Dubbel

This dubbel is brewed by Brouwerij Affligem in Belgium. Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability. Appearance Adam: soft reddish brown...apricot Bryan: a dark reddish-orangish color brew; a soft head that dissappears slowly but leaves a swirly head throughout the drink Smell Adam: inspiring nose, figs, licorice Bryan: a bit of sweet caramel apple, but otherwise hard to pin down Taste Adam: lives up to the nose, complex, not overpowering Bryan: a bit of tartness balanced by nice malt character Mouthfeel Adam: carbonated, light Bryan: a medium body; clean; moderate carbonation Drinkability Adam: like belgian beer? this is a good example Bryan: easy-drinking; a good dubbel Seconds? Adam: yes...mmm Bryan: sure, though two will be enough for one session
