Nice malty caramel taste. Very easy drinking. Awesome take on dubbel. Almost like doppelbocked dubbel. Roasty, dark fruit, caramel, bread but also very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bomber from Safeway in San Jose, CA. Nice medium amber with a foamy light tan head. Aromas of candy sugar, caramel and toasted wood along with a little hint of Belgian yeast. These follow into the taste with a slight sour note and a little vanilla. The body is a bit thin. Thereís some dryness towards the end with some peppery spice. Strangely, unlike a lot of ales this one gets less tasty as it warms. Finishes with lasting caramel sweetness and that sour woody taste. Tasty, but could use a bit more malt to bolster the body and bump up the flavors.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice aroma, but taste is pretty basic. Nuttiness, sweetness, and malty flavor, check. Nothing else going on.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A decent, if not great dubbel. Pours a beautiful purple-brown with a light tan head. Smells slightly like banana. Taste has a lot of maltiness, and some alcohol, despite the 7%. Had in the bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep red, bording on a shade of brown, moderate frothy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Soft dark pitted fruit, otherwise a whole wheat like breadiness.   Very bready on the tongue, soft alcohol, a little bit
of dark pitted fruit.   Only thing missing is the musty/dank basement.   However, as an American example this one will pass.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong bready finish, with soft dark pitted fruit.
Could stand to be maltier, mustier, and sweeter, but as is its a passing grade.

Letís start with the bad a little chalky. Ever thing else is good poor is dark amber with a med tan head. Aroma is yeast and fruit. Easy drinker that has apple and yeast flavors. Sweet like a red apple and also crisp like a apple.

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!
