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 oneís for sipping by the fire.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 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.

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).

Bottle [12oz]. Pours a clear deep golden-orange with an average size long-lasting frothy off-white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet and vegetal along with lightly toasted malt, some spices and fruit. Flavour is malty along with light spices, some light sugary sweetness, some vegetal notes and light hops. Average to medium bodied. Disappointing really, I was expecting much better, itís just O.K.
