A Belgian style dubbel brewed with copious amounts of malted rye. Pilsner and Munich malts comprise the base of this rich yet crisp Belgian ale, while the addition of 20% rye malt lends a dry and spicy flavor and aroma. Balanced with German noble hops and fermented with a blend of Belgian yeasts, this will beer will have you throwing up!... the horns. To let you in on a little secret, AtG names all it’s rye beers after heavy metal bands.

A very unusual take on the Belgian dubbel left an impression. If not for the awesome pumpkin seasonal this would have been my choice for a full pint. It shows an understanding of where to paint outside the lines and where to stick with the normal routine.

Aroma / Appearance - The mostly opaque reddish brown body is rich for a dubbel. An ivory ring of head rests like packing foam on top. Cotton candy, candied apples, toffees, nuts, and spicy cider are well balanced together.

Flavor / Palate - Chewy bubble gum sweetens the palate and fills the stomach. Cotton candy and sourdough bread slide to a candied finish. Apples hang in the back of the throat with a moderate bitter tang. Full bodied and dense this has a little something for everyone.

Aroma of clover, dough, banana, rye and herbs. Appearance is brown with bone head. Flavor matches the nose; the rye really cuts through in the finish. Palate is bubbly. Pretty tasty take on a Dubbel.

Draught at brewery. Listed on board as a Belgian Rye Dubbel. Kind of a light dubbel with caramel and slight sweetness. Wasn’t sure if I cared much for it. Maybe up the malt profile a bit to the dubbel status. Also, wrong "its" in the description for this beer.
