COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich garnet color with aromas of dried cherry and fig. Slight malt sweetness with a smooth dry finish - this Belgian style Dubbel is made prominent by the yeast strain and accentuated by a touch of biscuit malt and special B. Pin point carbonation lifts the aromatics out of the beer and leaves a silky "Belgian lace" head.

On tap ab BJ, This beer looks great, and is quite good also, the sweetness is well balanced by the malty bread/biscuit profile it contrasts quite well to me.. thoroughly enjoyed

portableparty (1908) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2012
On tap at Barley Johns. Pours hazy brown with a creamy tan head that slowly dissipates. Aroma is soft sugars and fruit with the yeast being very subtle. Taste is all of the above with the sugars showing through and banana and clove showing nicely with the malty and spice finishing with yeast. Palate is medium and calm with a slick dry finish. Very smooth.

bluemooner (586) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Pours a deep copper with a thin, filmy white head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty with hints of biscuits, candy, and bananas. Flavor is bready and yeasty with a lot of sugary sweetness with hints of bananas, cloves, cinnamon, allspice, and some sweet alcohol. Medium body with soft carbonation. Very tasty brew.

Stine (1453) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Dark oak pour; somewhat empty in appearance. Vinous surprises of fig jam and juicy black cherries on the nose, burying graham crackers and brown sugar in a winey syrup. Hints of moist black bread, clove and expanding zesty spice. Flavor brings a bit of cinnamon and bubblegum into the fold of browned banana and bitter cocoa, oily hazelnuts, and sweetbread. Sprightly and brisk in the mouth; getting impish and watery toward the acidic and tannic finish. Simple; favorable and pleasing for the most part.
