A Belgian-style Abbey ale brewed with Belgian candy syrup. This beer was split into two separate fermentations (Wyeast Westmalle and Ardennes yeast) then blended back together. Allow this to be warm, letting the malt subtleties emerge.

On the brewpub site, this was calmed a "Dubbel". In any case, sports a flat, deep maroon body. Initiaties with a lovely, spicy phenolic noise with definite streams of Dr. Pepper. The flavor begins with an easy phenolic quality, again with a twinge of Dr. Pepper, but the unbalanced nature of it as the flavors develop makes for an increasingly unpalatable experience to the point where the pint is left unfinished. Ends with an unyielding syrup, sour tannic twang.

[Rating 1900!!!!!] Tap @ Big Horse... Poured hazy amber with a white head. Aroma was yeasty with candied sugars for sure. Cloves, sugar, mild hop leafiness, vanilla, lots of yeast funk going on. A little astringent with the strong yeast tones (in a good way). The sugary tones played like the crystal sugar stuff that coats Sour Patch Kids. Yeast notes of bubble gum and cotton candy.
