Aroma of grainy caramel and gamey hops. Medium brown color, headless. Mildly sweet dark fruit flavor, plums and currants, and a side of spicy yeast. Kind of a lightweight, some alcohol zing. Malt profile is a bit off for a mid-weight dubbel, but its in that range.

Lukaduke (2184) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Pours a deep sienna color with four fingers of white tight bubbled foam. The nose is rustic with spicy grain, roasted caramel, cured meat, pine tar and some yeasty esters. On the palate it follows the nose nicely with a great balance between round sweet malt, bitter hop presence and a lot of complexity in between. Peppercorn, rye, chocolate, pine, grass, cola.. interesting and unique !
