COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Belgian-style Dubbel is a beer style crafted by and made famous by the Trappist Monks of Belgium. Our version is deep ruby red and malty with just enough phenols and esters from the Belgian yeast to bring the complex flavors from a beer of this style into balance. We hope you enjoy Brewmasters Signature Series beer #2, feel free to share your thoughts about this beer at www.chocbeer.com Beers, Michael Lalli

Comes out of the growler a nice clear sepia - though the thin wheat head doesn’t stick around too long. Aroma has notes of apple, caramel and malt plus just a hint of butterscotch. Flavor has malty, caramel and fruity notes - the latter a mixture of apple and pear with a touch of banana - plus a hint of horehound. Smooth texture has average body and not much fizz, but this still adds up to an enjoyable beer. Finally got something from Oklahoma - hope this year sees me getting brews from the other states I "need"!

Faint aroma of caramel and figs. Dark caramel color. Palate is too light. Flavor of fig, sweet caramel and biscuit. Belgian character not as present.

Brought home from Oklahoma -- 12oz bottle into a pint glass pours a ruddy gold with quickly dissipating bubbles. Aroma is light caramel and phenols. Flavor is very pleasant caramel with a hint of yeast funk. The beer is a little light for my preference.

22 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99 in October 2011. Pours a murky brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, Belgian yeast, fruit, apples, some strange citrus, toasted malts, weird.

"super fruity and bready aroma...like a doppelbock on crack. thick feel, but slightly overcarbonated. flavor much the same as the aroma with lots of sweet light fruit, doughy, with a hint of controlled spice. nicely done. thanks to Hannah for the trade

Pours a slightly hazed red brown at start, finishes with a significant amount of chunky sediment. A lot of overripe fruit and dates. Malty body, but overcarbonated and fizzy.

From the 12oz: It’s cloudy, rusty orange/brown with few slight tan bubbles. It smells very sweet, with apricot, banana, caramel, biscuit and alcohol. The flavor is the same; good caramel sweetness with a touch of sour fruit zing and nice toasty bitterness. It finishes with bitterness and a slight hoppy twang. The palate is just south of full, with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel, almost prickly carb. I think mine could be a bit young. Fantastic to find in a 12 oz....

Draft. This was a decent belgian style but nothing special. It definitely got better as it warmed up.

No retention and no lacing. Smells of sweet malt and yeast. Tastes exactly the same. Not a fan of Belgium, and this is no exception. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at my grandparents. Pour is murky amber-brown with a big cream head that quickly dissipated. Tangy, dark fruity, vegetal, licorice, toffee, caramel, stale bready aroma. Taste is dark fruits, caramel, bready, toffee, cooked vegetables, tangy, red grapes, weird husky, and grainy. Medium mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Not a very good Dubbel and really has some off flavors.
