Draft at the brewery. Hazy blonde with a creamy halo of white foam. Drinks with an almost cream ale consistency, but with a light alcoholic kick and a vague yeasty whisper in the background. Quite drinkable. (#4299, 10/5/2011)

Growler. Just a sad, sad effort. Worst double I’ve every tasted, heck not even close to the style. Gym socks on the palate and wet funky dog sweat finish. Actually, dogs don’t sweat do they? If they did it would taste like this stuff.

Just average abbey dubble. Aroma shows mostly caramel but missing the distinctive Belgian yeastiness. Pours cloudy dark amber. Flavors never quite meld. Ends on an earthy bitter tip.

Probably wrong for the style but still an ok beer. This poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma was contained some caramel, brown sugar, and spices. The flavor was rather sweet with a spice presence. Overall a nice beer but not a Dubbel.
