CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a transparent deep copper with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of doughy bready sweet dark caramel Belgian malt and yeast. Flavor of sweet biscuity caramel and toffee with good authentic yeasty complexity and mouthfeel toward a slightly drier finish with a touch of clove spice. A nice Belgian Dubbel.

Ughsmash (7091) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2006
On tap at the Ale Asylum. Poured a hazy darker brown with a light ring of off-white head. Nose picked up peppery spices first, followed by fruit and woody sweetness... very sweet. Sweet fruits in the flavor department too.. and very spicy (white pepper and clove primarily)... too sweet for me.. bit of alcohol bite at the sweet finish. Thicker on the palate and a tad grainy toward the back.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Sampled on tap at the brewpub (Madison, WI). Pours a deep dark ruby pour, a nice deep haziness, reddish copper, with a decent offwhite head atop, laces ok as it dies to a ring. Aromas are sweet yeastiness, touches of esters, dark caramel and toffee, bready malts and some toast. The yeast jumps out more to me. Initial is deeper and darker, red fruit with cherries, a touch of poimegranate moving into sweet caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Some light Belgian Candi sugar, yeasty spice. More spicy, some estery banana and pear come into the fold. A solid Dubbel, a bit estery and yeasty. I’d prefer some darkness.. Chocolate or more deeper malts. Still, not bad. By the book.. But a little estery and fruity for me

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2007
On draught at the Ale Asylum brewpub in Northern Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear dark amber brew with a fast dissolving, creamy off-white head that leaves behind a light film and ring. Aroma of caramel malt, a slight banana, brown sugar and a touch of alcohol. Taste is medium bodied, very slight carbonation, semi-sweet character with a dry roasted malt flavor with some roasted nut, brownsugar and caramel. Finish has a slight brown sugar aftertaste with a lingering malty flavor and even a little alcohol warmth.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. The body was dark copper with with a creamy off white head. The aroma was banana with some dry hay and a little bit of sweet caramel. The taste was sweet with some funky grass and toffee. There is the obvious presence of candi sugar with some cinnamon in the finish. This is big, but not annoying.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2006
Growler ala the Mad City crew. A brew that I had a tough time with. I enjoyed it, but I could not put a finger on anything that made it stick out. I sampled this through out the tasting and still didn’t come up with much. A hazed dark tan color with a small dark beige head. Aromas of caramel malt and mild hops. Dry malt and aged hay in the flavors. Some mild spice and pastry comes on. Still I look for more.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Draught sample at the brewery, mid-October 2006. Translucent, murky-yeasty darkish body with a small lasting ring of head....caramel and lots of herbal character in the nose (rosemary and thyme dominate) and also a distinct note of Scotch whisky.....quite sweet, lightly alcoholic with huge caramel-brown sugar notes, a bit simpler on the tongue than the nose but delectable still, just verging on but not quite too sweet....fluffy, light mouthfeel, tingly carbonation and a bit more alcohol to finish. Lovely.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2009
On tap at Ale Asylum – to echo phispond417, FINALLY. Dark brown with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma of light fruit, Belgian yeast, caramel and mild nuts. Taste of ripe fruit, yeast, alcohol, caramel, nuts, esters and mild woodiness. Effervescent body has a dry finish and definite warming. Another quality brew from Ale AsYlUM.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2006
Draught at the brewery tasting room. Hazy reddish-orange color with off white head that left a bit of lace on the glass. Smelled of dried cherry and a bit of alcohol. Light clove, cotton candy, and alcohol flavors.
