3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had no idea what to expect and this didnít disappoint. A very nice and complex aroma full of fruit notes. An attractive red pour with a nice tan head that leaves some lacing. The taste is well balanced and fairly complex but itís just a little too thin. A touch more body could do wonders for this beer. It is light and drinkable and maybe that was the goal, but a bit more substance to really make these flavors stand out could really make this one special. Still, very nice!

Bottle from World of beer Renton. The owner highly recommended it. Had a dumb label but what the hell. Fantastic Dubbel! Sweet like I like dubbels and not too dry. Complex with lots of dark fruits and candi sugar with that nice Belgian yeast! So far Iíve liked everything Iíve had from these guys.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap - @ RHP. Pours clear red-copperish with nice dense, white-tan head. Aromas of slight malted biscuit, cola, and light roasted nuts. Taste is nice, malts and cola, little bit of citrus and hops at the finish. Medium-lighter bodied, fades on the palate pretty quickly. Pretty nice sipper, if not outstanding.

2.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is pretty weak. I would say more like a pale marzen. Thin watery and lacks any interesing flavors. Meh.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from the Vacaville BevMo. Pours a darkly ruddy brownish tone with a small creamy beige head. Aroma of darkish fruit and dark malt. Seems to have a hint of tobacco or leather. Near full bodied. Flavor starts with med dark fruit and dusty roast malt. Hints of leather and chocolate. Itís sufficiently dusty and astringent to suggest wood. Despite all the malt it impresses me as finishing rather dry - and then I change my mind. And again. Very tasty ale.
