3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy medium brown color ale with a medium foamy head with light retention and not much lacing. Aroma of dry fruit and candi sugar with some subtle fruity ester is quite a treat. Taste is also a wonderful mix between some dry fruit such as raisin and plums with light residual sugar and some fruity ester with a solid malt backbone. Mix between sugar and malt is perfect with good full body and good carbonation. Very well brewed – additional carbonation and a bit less sugar would have improve what is already a great beer.

Bottle thanks to mora2000. Listed as Dub3, bottled 11/10 and brewed 10/24. In no way does this seem like a Dubbel...Belgian Stout? Yes. Brown to black body, tan head. Aroma of chocolate, fudge and vanilla. Taste is fudge, nutty, dark candi sugar. Creamy carbonation. Not bad, but not a Dubbel.
