Brouwerij Van Eecke Kapittel Watou Dubbel Abbey Dubbel at 7.5% ABV ($4.27 from Willow Park Wine & Spirits)
Pours clear amber-brown with a short light beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. Nose is brown sugar, dark fruit, spicy herbs. Taste is moderate candi sugar sweetness and mild spice. Medium body, slightly oily texture, and moderate sustained carbonation, with an off-dry mild bitter finish.
Not a lot to say about this one – decent enough abbey dubbel, but nothing really leaps out. Nose is a little on the muted side, and the appearance is a little disappointing with the short-lived short head and absence of lacing. Pleasant enough, but not all that memorable.
