This Christmas Dubbel from Sawmill is a typical Belgian style with rich flavors. The one I am drinking is from this year so it isn’t too strong, although I do have one put aside to try after another year of ageing.
The nose is lovely sweet fruits with a hint of raisins in there. The taste is distinctly Belgian Dubbel being thick and rich, but smooth at the same time. The finish is a almost dry fruity taste. As the label suggests this beer is pretty much like drinking a Christmas fruitcake and goes well with some Christmas mince pies. A perfect offering for the Christmas season, hopefully they do it again next year.
