3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Attractive label with some traditional touches. Very dark amber pour. The aroma is fairly flat to start, with some pineapple muffin and yeast. The flavor is mellow and sweet - dark bread with light spices, maybe some coriander, ginger, or pepper. The aroma and flavor open up as it breathes. Not the best dubbel, but a good brew.

Bottle @ home via trade with pineypower. Thanks so much! Pours a dark rust orange appearance with a foamy, cream colored head. Very spicy, pear/apple, chewy, toasty malty aroma. A bit thin. Cinnamon, apple, toasted malty, light caramel, a bit smoky, light citrusy flavor. Not my favorite but a cool beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle via 6pack from the brewery during the Rosso release. Poured a clear deep orange/amber with an average sized foamy super light beige head. Aroma is spicy and nutty at first, brown bread, cinnamon and chocolate. Thinner bodied with average carbonation and a watery mouthfeel. Flavor of light winter spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, medium toast, light touch of nuts. Solid enough to drink a few during the Christmas season while hanging out with family and friends (assuming you have either).

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours amber with a thin, quickly fading head. Aromas of caramel, toast. Initial flavor tangy, salty buoyed by a healthy carbonation. Aftertaste evolves nicely. This one’s for sipping by the fire.
