From beer of the month club. Tastes pretty good but nothing great or too unique. Kind of like a smoother fat tire? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Christpuncher (708) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2013
Not a bad ale out of this brewery. Very strong and tasty. Pours a nice golden yellow. Would not get again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big and bold. Nice head the lasts through the beer in a proper glass. Rich flavor with a good hoppy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SabreSkull (54) - North Augusta, South Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2013
BOTM Club bottle. Dark iced tea color, not a lot of aromas here. Somewhat astringent taste, not overly objectionable but could be smoother. A thin-bodied Belgian attempt. Least favorite bottle in this month’s shipment.

Steverus0 (120) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Weird for a dubbel, this brew is overly bitter but full of depth and character. The plum and raisin come through clean and leave a clean feeling on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.; from weekend notes). Looks solid; a fairly transparent copper with light-beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells of some caramel malt, toffee, a bit of dark fruit, and Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An okay (albeit unadventurous) no-frills example of the style.

jzzbassman (1466) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle. Poured a pretty amber and a nice head. My wife said it reminded her of Raison d’Etre, and with the dark plum and raisin I can see why. A bit "small" withe everything seeming muted, but I can appreciate that it wasn’t yet another over alcohol’d sweet Dubbel. The toffee and dark fruit combo is a good one.

RedSox2004 (1137) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Dark orange amber with a fluffy three-finger head that recedes to a solid film and leaves very nice lace. Dark fruit aromas with notes of toasted malt, brown sugar, banana and caramel. Dark fruit sweetness tamed by mild alcohol, alongside a hint of apple tartness and Belgian yeast. Medium body, lively carbonation, sticky mouthfeel, and a lingering sweetness cut off by a gentle hop bitterness.

Bottle my brother in law got somehow. Pours dark amber/brown. Some banana flavor, fairly yeasty.

Aurelius (3906) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2013
BOTM club selection. US longneck; ruddy, tea-colored brew with a tan head. Nearly clear, perhaps not, kind of hard to tell in through the condensate on my glass. Grassy, lightly tangy, starchy aroma. Very nice flavor - first flush is candi-sweet, but with good bitter balance afterwards. All the notes in the aroma are present in the flavor. Woody, grassy, herbal notes. Mouthy - chalky/pithy body. Not really strongly Belgian in character.
