3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fred’s the beer guy. Pours dark brown with a foamy/creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma is floral and chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is chocolate and cherry. Clearly. Weird. Some dark malt, but for me this is chocolate and cherry. Lots of other things going on, but c&c dominates. It has dark malt, and the finish is less than dry, but it is quite delicious. DHB may have gone so complex that the flavors are indecipherable. But the taste is good.

Tap at the Royal Tavern, Philly - 26/05/12.
Deep brown colour with a thin tan head.
Roasted aroma, molasses, burnt sugar, Belgian yeast.
Taste follows nose but with more dark fruits, quite sweet, not as roasty tasting and a little pepper and spice.
Medium bodied and carbonation. Not a bad dubbel, could have been better balanced, can’t quite put my finger on it!?!
