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.

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.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 8, 2012
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.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2012
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.

OK, everything about this beer screams Tripel not dubble, which almost makes me think they put it in the wrong bottle, but thats all I will say about that because its still a great beer. Aroma is sweet and spiced like apples and pears with cinnamon. Color is a deep golden with nice white head. Fairly malty flavor but those spiced fruit flavors come through quite a bit. A great beer, however misleading.
