COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This clean, malty ale has a robust flavor with fruity, plum aromas. The carbonation balances the moderate sweetness from the malt, resulting in a dry and smooth finish. It pairs great with savory foods like barbecue, rich stews, grilled meats, and dark chocolate cake.

A gift from friend Paul B; Thanks! Poured at a good temperature with a nice, thick, light tan colored, foamy head that lasts for a while and some lace. Color is a clear, dark honey amber with loads of bubble trails. Aroma is caramel, toffee, malt, yeast, wine, spice. Flavorís like nose and has carbonic tang up front followed by sweet then the flavors and bitter. Also has circus peanuts, and cloves. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, fairly long and a hint of alcohol warmth.

bomber to glass; been awhile since I had a dubbel - this one looks different - lighter than most - orange amber hue with white head. I didnít get a lot of aroma - slight citrus and spice. nice med. palate. Taste was that of a dubbel - solid; has a slightly dry finish. solid brew; my first from Adelberts

25 oz. Bottle. Great dubbel! Light citrus scent with bread, plum, and malt. Deep copper pour with a frothy head, carbo loaded! Light/med body. Spice fronted taste with a bready molasses middle and big malt aftertaste. Loved it!

Not quite as good as their tripel but still mighty tasty. Caramel and raisin aroma. Taste is similar with some peppery notes.

Pours a murky copper with a lasting tan head. Aroma is raisin, nuts, and yeasty. Taste is caramel, doughy, some dates, and a little pepper. Lively on the palate and finishes dry. Not bad.

NIce pour... malty sweet with the lingering yeast and super long/mild hop note. Very fresh... Carbonated just right! George A. Hovey says he likes it.... :) Keep brewing and pollinating flowers bruda.

Bottle from batch 001 Bottle 2014. Bottled 1/2/12. Slow gusher, pours with mild chunks, hazed copper with lasting tan head of foam. Aromas are nutty, plums, raisins, currants, leather, prunes, chocolate and light phenols. Medium malt character. A bit spicy with some peppery alcohol notes (and a touch of fusel). Flavors are medium metallic, very sweet, berries, nutty, astringent tannic extraction, malty. Medium esters, caramel, chocolate, nutty, cocoa, DMS vegital. Lively bubbles, medium dry. Needs some work.

Pours a hazy rust-tinged burnt orange with a small white head. Aroma is kinda tangy with orange peel, sourdough bread, toast, grain, hay, slight caramel and raisin. Flavor of caramel, sourdough bread, raisin, grass, pepper, and a slight chardonnay-like flavor. Finishes with the yeast drying things out slightly and an aftertaste toast, tangy sourdough yeast, and some caramel. Medium to light bodied, fizzy mouthfeel, doesnít quite hold it all together. Decent beer, but the flavors are very light and tangy in nature. Pouring the yeast in helps the beer, but overall itís merely an average example of a style I love.
