3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 On tap. Pours a clear reddish brown with a full rich light tan head. Taste is really superb. Rich sweet roasted malt flavor, buttery and caramely, even some toffee. This is more like a robust English brown ale vs. a Belgian Dubbel. No matter what they want to call it, I love it! Very well balanced and delicious. A nearby pub is offering it on draft in 20 oz glasses for $3.00!! Amazing. I bet that won’t last.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an average amber with an aroma of cereal malt, Grape Nuts, and wheat. Flavor is the same. Average mouthfeel. It’s your basic American middle-of-the-road beer.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 From the County Market in Southern View. Um something didn’t quite work with this. It was not bad but it just lacked something. Seemed a bit thin and little slight on flavor. Serving: Bottle

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-red body with a thick, foamy off-white head. Nice aroma of brown sugar and cherries. The palate is rather thin but smooth. Quite tasty. Malty sweetness, fruit, and brown sugar. There’s a decent alcohol warming at the end.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle] Brown pour with a nice amount of brown head. Malty aroma. The taste is quite malty as well. I’m mainly getting caramel with a yeast character. Spices like nutmeg and some dark pit fruits as well. Average mouthfeel and body. An interesting beer, but I wouldn’t call it a dubbel. In fact, I wasn’t sure exactly where they were going with this one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear copper / amber with a good sized tan head. The aroma has toffee, bread, milk caramel, toasty & smooth malt and a Belgian yeast character. Medium / thick grainy body with lots of sharp prickly carbonation. The flavor starts with a dry cracker taste, some minerals, nuttiness, dry toffee, caramel and spices. The finish has coffee-like bitterness, more minerals and is on the metallic side. Fair dubbel.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from the bottle into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. The pour was a caramel colored body topped by a white head of foam, which mostly diminished, leaving islets of foam here and there. A sweet yeasty smell, with some touch of spice, and a slight whiff of alcohol. The mouthfeel is full with moderate carbonation, and a bitter, grapefruity tang at the end, which lasts a little too long on the sides of the tongue for my liking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drank from the bottle. Label is pretty cool with a buffalo and a dark red outline. Taste is fruit, toffee, and roastred malt. Leaves a bitter aftertaste. 7.2% alcoholo is a plesant surprise.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I’m not sure why I don’t like this one, but I don’t. Usually anything above 6% alc is good in my book.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a dark amber with a large tan head. Aroma is dark fruit with a helping of brown sugar. Flavor is lots of candi sugar and toffee with some more fruityness toward the end. Finish leaves a little roasted malt behind. I’m not sure about this being a dubble but its a decent Belgian ale made here in Missouri.
