2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I probably shouldn’t be so hard on this beer, but I’m a bit touchy when it comes to Belgian doubles and this beer doesn’t really touch the best and brightest. Mild in comparison, has spice but isn’t spicy. Balanced as far as it goes.

Weak aroma, nice color. There is a sweetness which just makes the flavor enjoyable, but not by much. Watery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Clear darkish copper with a quarter inch of lasting foam. Mild nose of scorched brown sugar, dark fruit and cola. Flavor steps it up some with toffee, plum, and dark cherry. Delicate balance finishes barely dry with some light roast, citrus, molasses and a touch of woody hops. Medium body has light-medium carbonation and a nice balance. Nothing real complex, but a tasty and somewhat unique dubbel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby pour. Lots of malt flavors, caramel and some dark fruit. I get a kind of dark ale--almost Scottish--without any real abbey character to it. Drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer’s aroma was reminiscent of toasted malts, allspice, and a hint of smoke, and the color was a clear copper color with an off-white head that faded to a ring and thin layer on top of the liquid. The taste was quite sour, a touch sweet, and slightly bitter, and the palate combines a medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, and an abrupt finish.

A very good dubbel. Pours a fantastic amber red with a thick tan head. Not too much smell, a little bit of berries. Taste is great, quite malty, with banana and vanilla, and some plum. Refreshing finish. Very good!
