2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with tan head. Sweet dark fruits, candy, brown sugar, purple grape juice. Syrupy texture. A little too sweet for my liking, but if you like sweet, you might like this one. It is not boring or bad, just too sweet for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a Belgian Style Abbey Ale or more accurately said, an attempt at one. The head was off white and rather small, and the look was a cloudy dark brown. The aroma was of sour hops. The taste was creamy (a tick on the Abbey Ale style inspection), with some caramel and a tiny amount of roasted coffee. It finished with a light sourness and there was pretty much no aftertaste. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate roasted grain, cereal, and chocolate milk for the malt, light to moderate cooked orange and perfume for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with brwon sugar, date, toffee, and a hint of vinegar. Head is small, creamy, light tan, with good slippery lacing and is mostly lasting, Color is muddy, medium brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation and a tart finish. A bit more tart than most Abbey Dubbels, but still a nice well rounded Belgian.
