Headbanger (2974) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2010
12oz bottle 3/30/10 (Binny’s Naperville)-40° in Trappist glass-Pours a clear ruby with a small tight off white head. Aroma of sour, yeast, sweetness, and fruit. Taste of sweetness, malt, fruit, and brown sugar. This medium bodied brew does not fit the Dubbel style but IMO is still tasty and quite drinkable. Not the best but not the worst.

StefanSD (2015) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAR 25, 2010
12 oz bottle that was an extra from honkeybra. Pours a translucent brown color with a medium beige head that has fair retention and shows some lacing. The aroma is somewhat light with sweet roasted malts and peanuts. The flavor is rock candy sweet with sweet roasted malts, indistinct fruits and sweet nuts. The palate is uneven, starting malty, then finishing thin and gritty. Beer finished short with a bit of lingering biter walnut. Overall: I’m not a big fan of dubbels, nor am I a fan for overly sweet beers, so the kindest thing I can say to this was that it was interesting.

drpimento (2098) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Poured with a decent foamy frothy tan head and a tiny bit of lace. Head mostly died down quick. Color is a nice clear amber red. Aroma is malt, circus peanuts, dates, spice, and funk. Flavor is about the same with a sweet bitter finish. Body is on the thin side with ok carbonation. Wouldn’t go out of my way for this.

HonkeyBra (3108) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 hmm, brown pour with little head. Aroma of raisins, figs, strong sweetness. Flavor is brown sugar and some doughy malts. Flavor is very sweet. Some of the dried fruit notes come out. So sweet, and in a bad way. The palate is all wrong for a dubbel. Kind of bad actually. Disappointed i bought this one.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Light copper colored body with a very light khaki head. The head is dense and long lasting as are the heads on other Crown Valley beers. The nose is sweet grape flavored bubblegum. There is also a little bit of bread dough, but the fruity notes overwhelm it. The taste is lightly toasted almonds with a little bit blueberry. There taste also has some light bread crust in the finish. Overall, a decent brew that is interesting in that it is barely sweet, but not dry either. A soft, lightly carbonated body makes this easy to drink. Good, but not great.

12 oz bottle shared by csbosox. Pour is clear golden ruby with a one inch active off white head. Aroma is a foul, plastic sort of garbage thing. Beyond that, a bit of sweet malt. Taste is less offensive, with just the sweetish malt with the sourish taste - weird, kinda off putting. Palate was medium bodied, a bit on the oily side. Based on other reviews, this may have been a less then perfect bottle. Thanks Chris?

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Bottle. Poured an amber color with a white head that lasted through out the entire beer. Very good carbonation. Aroma was very fruity. Plums, strawberries, and molasses was on the nose. Flavor was brown sugar, rasasin, fig and plums. Long finish. Never heard of this brewing company, but after having three of there beers, not bad. Found these at Gomers in Lees Summit. I love seeing new beers from missouri. Decent beer.

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2011 Draft sample at the brewery. Pours a mostly clear brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of raisin, plum, yeast, caramel, roasted malts, hops, and spices. The flavor is mostly plum, raisin, and yeast, with notes of malt, caramel, hops, and pepper. Medium bodied, and not as cloudy in color or thick in body as a lot of dubbels. Smooth and rich, with a little warming alcohol. Nice take on a dubbel from this startup brewer.

Can’t find much info on this one. Brewery’s website doesn’t list descriptions. Had on tap at Shaved Duck in St. Louis. Plumb and fruit. Decent carbonation. Tasty interpretation of the dubbel.
