Blegian-Style Dubbel Ale
A truly special ale. Evil 8° will blur the lines of what you think you know about American beer. Brewed in the Belgian Abbey style using caramelized Biscuit malt, Goldings hops and a unique strain of brewer’s yeast. 19.3° Plato, 50 IBUs and 7.7% alcohol by volume.

(Sample Date: 3/12/2009 Source:Capital Ale House - Innsbrook) Beer dinner with Taylor Smack. Light spiciness with hints of sugar, coriander, chocolate. Dark amber very clear with frothy tan head. Spicy, almost a bit of tootsie roll qualities. Medium body with fairly high carbonation. Spicy dry peppery finish. Belgian pale malts and candy sugar adds color and body.

thanks to Bboyshatter for sending this one along in the under 100 BIF Bottle poured into my Portsmouth tulip glass produced a finger worth of off white head that transformed to a thick lace. The body is a great dark brown with burgandy highlights’. The aromas of sweet dark fruits and Belgian yeast are wonderful in my nose. There is a little bit of alcohol in the nose as well The taste follows the nose but with a nice balance with the sweetness and the heat from the alcohol. A medium feel in my mouth with light carbonation on my tongue A good representation of a Belgian Dubbel not the best but a solid one at that I drink it again and say it is worth the try. One is enough at a sitting due to the heat on this one

Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Sampled via 12-oz bottle during Dark Lord Day ’09 at table 1. Pours a clear dark cola brown brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thin ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted dark caramel malt, a light molasses and some yeast. Taste is medium bodied, some light carbonation with a thick caramel flavor with flavors of yeast, raisin, some brown sugar and chocolate. Finish is a tad watery, slightly lighter and gritty compared to most other dubbels I’ve tried.

Different I like this one. Nice malts on in the aroma with a very subtle bit of fruit in there. You can also smell the sweetness. I like the malt in this one pronounced up front and stays with you in the aftertaste. Beautiful dark deep ruby red color. Medium bodied with a bit of head which does not stick around long at all. Nice one would have again.

Mahogany appearance with a small, beige head and decent lacing. Late developing yeasty, fruity, malty aroma. Taste was spicy, with dark fruit and grainy, roasted malts. Medium bodied, well carbonated, generously hopped mouthfeel leading to a long lasting finish.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Sampled in Lexington. Goes down really nicely. Has a bit of a caramel aftertaste / bite. A nice lacey head that lingers. Overall a very well made brew.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Bottle, #465. Brown pour with medium head. Malty and sweet aroma. Rich flavor of malts and dark fruit. Complex flavor. Curious about what the 8° means.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2009
dark brown with moderate brown head. estery nose with some dark candi notes. flavor starts off nice with some dark caramel tastes and some dark fruity esters. the problem comes in with the hops, the bitterness and flavor are too overwhelming, though clean, any lingering depth is erased and it threatens style guidelines. not an awful example
