3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is spice breads, burnt sugar. Taste is muddled...malty, some spiced raisin bread, yeasty, maybe wood. Not as smooth / fluid as I had hoped for, perhaps it really softens over time? Overall a little disappointing from the likes of Allagash.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample poured at Allagash. The pour is a darker amber color with a nice thick white head that slowly dissipates down to a thick bubbly collar with a good lacing. The aroma is very caramel forward. There is a light maltiness and Belgian spiciness to it, but the caramel lingers through out, which is why I think I like dubbels. Light alcohol on the back end. The flavor is definitely malty. There is a little twinge to let you know it’s not a traditional amber or English style ale, but it’s malty and caramel heavy like one. The mouth feel is a little thin on this with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly caramel malty finish. This is a good surprise!
