this brew pours brown. it’s sweet flavored, with a nice, malty nose. A decent Belgian, but there are better out there.

Nice hazy amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt and cherries. Medium-bodied; Malty flavour with nuts and cherries with a good caramel flavour. Overall, nice to try! I sampled this beer at Smokeless Joe’s after our May RB Party on 15-May-2004 in Toronto, Ontario.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Ruby in color. Nose is cherries with chocolate, raisins and molasses. Dark fruits first followed by clove, buttered-toffee and a hop spicyness. The yeast strain is very clean. This is a very simple and very dull dubbel. It isn’t as full in the mouth and lacks the complexity and flavor of most beers of the style.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2004
A muddy brown color, faint off-white head. Aroma: seriously raisiny! Toss in some molasses, dark rum, sour cherries, maybe even dates? Sizzling hops on the palate,warm mouthfeel from the malt, and the yeasty, raisiny flavor is rich, full, delicious. More sour notes abide in the middle, and a candyish feeling runs through the finish. A good dubbel, a fine enough drink, but far from great.
