A Big Belgian Brown Ale. This is a style that originated in the monasteries in the Middle Ages to fill the Monks up during fasting.. This beer is rich, malty with a bunch of chocolate flavor.

Pours hazy brown with a tiny white head. Quite carbonated in appearance and decent lacing. Aroma is of caramel malts, toast, and some light sweetness, perhaps toffee. Flavor is a little bit thin but nice and sweet with a toasty and spicy finish.

Sampled at High Street Grill Winter Beer Fest. Nice looking hazy amber with a sweet aroma of caramel and Belgian style spice. Flavor is sweet with a nicely bitter back end. Finishes very dry. Good stuff.

Poured a lightly hazy brown color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of buttery, caramelly malts, chocolate, raisins, light nuts, toffee, and toast. Taste of caramel malts, chocolate, dried fruits, more raisins, and Belgian yeast, with light alcohol.

This was basically the first attempt at the "Two Blind Monks" but came out too chocolatey and different from what they originally intended, so rather than waste the brew, they renamed it and gave us TWO unique Belgian Dubbles! I think I might almost like this one better, although they’re quite similar, this one has more of a uniquely American flavor to it, which sets it apart from most other Dubbles. Good stuff for sure!

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of yeast, butter, and alcohol. Poured copper/brown in color with a small, dense, off-white head. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Good lacing. Light to medium sweet flavor. Tastes of malts, yeast, and butter. Medium body. Thin, dry texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, malty, yeasty finish.

On tap at Capone’s. According to the brewer, this was orginally supposed to be their Two Blind Monks but ended up having too chocolate malts. I agree with that assesment as I got the Dubbel in the background with the heavier chocolate. This keg was ~1 years old. Poured a dark brown with almost no head (what head was off white). Aromas of roast, some dark fruitiness (cherries), and chocolate. Tastes of dark fruits (the same dark cherries), stronger chocolate, and lighter roastiness. Light to medium alcohol in the fnish.
