Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a brown color with orange highlights and a medium sized foamy beige head that left good lacing. The aroma was faint nut, wood and a touch of cocoa. The flavor was semi sweet and nutty with a bit of caramel, wood and cocoa. Medium length finish of caramel and cocoa. Medium body. Interesting.

Draft at brewpub. Pours chocolate brown with half an inch of khaki foam. Slight hints of sugar and Belgian yeast on the nose. Rich mouthfeel. Lots of candy sugar on the tongue. I’m getting the chocolate on the finish which makes an interesting twist on the style.

Growler. Pours a clear brown body with a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded to a very thin ring quickly. The nose is a nice fruity mix from the Belgian yeast, some fig notes, over-ripe bananas, light alcohol, minimal chocolate notes, and a little earthiness. The flavor is pretty typical of a good Dubbel, full of fruity esters, some nice banana, and a great yeast influence. The cocoa nibs express themselves on the back end of the finish, it’s not a sweet milk chocolaty type of note, more of a dry earthy cocoa flavor. It works really well in this since its so subtle and light. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not sticky or cloying, just right, with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice beer all in all. The more I drink of it the more I like it. Beers like that make me happy.

Interesting take on the Belgian abbey dubbel style. Sweet from the candied sugar and rich from the malts with the Belgian yeast evident.
