On tap at the brewpub, served in a tulip. Dark red brown with a small head. Muted yeasty and dark fruit aroma. Flavor is similar, with the expected dark fruit and yeasty cloves, but again a little watered down. It was served a bit on the cold side and the flavors came out a bit more as it warmed. Flavor is good, but it’s not strong enough.

hombrepalo (1885) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2008
12oz bottle. Solid Dubbel. Overexceeded my expectation of this style. Yeasts were not as dominant as I would expect for a belgian style beer, but still a great make. Poured a dark brown color with some brownish head, minimal lace. Taste is carmely and fruity, some yeast. esay going brew with a pleasant aftertaste. Enjoyable to the finish.

Bottle. Goodbar Beer Club. Nose is nearly burnt malt, a bit of fruit, alcohol, yeasty & spicy. Flavor is rich malt, caramels, bitter (but not acrid) malts, tart, almost green apple but not quite - somehow tarter. Like a dubbel with a bit of cherry/stout/wood.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Thanks to Notalush. Poured a clear mahogany and a thin off-white head. The aroma smells like glue and caramel. The flavor was mildly tart with notes of caramel and cola. Light-medium body.

notalush (5124) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Bottle - hazy amber beer - aroma is doughy and vegetal, with some ambiguous fruit notes - tart and earthy flavor, with some doughy sweetness underneath - a wee bit of cherry - not much else happening here.

This one will sneak up on you if you are not careful (I speak from experience). So easy drinking and rather strong... bad combo. But oh so delicious.

Tasted 5/16/08. 12oz bottle. Hazy and opaque brown hue. Moldy ring of bone white head. Toasty with a slight raisin and fudge and cocoa aroma. Sweet sugary malts. Very sweet. Syrupy sweet with a slight bitterness. Mild effervescence. Sweet breads. Medium to full bodied and sticky. Slight hoppy character. Good esters. Apples and berries. Less sweet and more tart as it warms. Slight orange and graham cracker flaovr. Good tart citrus note. Nice roast and yeast character. Lingering finish. Very nice!
