Kalona Dubbel Night Vision

This is a 7.8% ABV Belgian style dubbel ale. It is from the Kalona Brewing Company of Kalona, Iowa. Their motto: "Heavenly Beers Brewed by Mere Mortals." 

The beer pours very dark brown and dark ruby, nearing black. There is a very short lived head of tan foam. The aroma is dark caramel and dark fruits. The taste follows the aromas, dark fruits, dried fruits, dried cherries, and rich, dark caramel. It is sweet, but never cloying, with a bit of dryness and light bitterness on the finish. The beer drinks smooth, medium bodied, with a tingle of carbonation. Well done take on a Belgian style! (Plus I got to use my Belgian chalice that I got at a thrift store for 35 cents!)
