This is distinctly different from most Belgian dubbels I’ve tried. It had a murkier flavor, rather than the brightness of a classic dubbel like Duvel. It’s not a bad beer at all, but I was expecting something fresher and cleaner tasting. There was something odd about the bitterness and sweet that I felt wasn’t balanced, and the mouthfeel was more syrupy than I would have liked.

dmac (4965) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2014
12oz bottle from Xroads. Poured a nice looking medium density dark brown with super sunburnt orange edges under a dense smaller super long lasting creamy beige head. Aroma is nice, notes of light chocolate, Belgian yeast, raisin, touch of vinegar at first that fades completely and a slight cucumber note fades in, wet nuts and warm biscuit. Flavor is sweet with light chocolate and dark fruit to start but fades to roasty malt, biscuit and medium toast, followed by yeast, nuts and a touch of tea leaves. Good stuff.

Pretty decent for an American dubbel. A bit too much on the sweet candy side, lots of molasses and plum as well. Tried this at the DC beerfest with Jess, Mark, and Matt in 2014.
