3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a thin head on a black body.
The aroma is dark fruit, mostly plum and blackberry.
The taste is also plum with some mild pine bitterness.
The texture is softer with moderate carbonation.
Itís an enjoyable drink, though itís missing the complexity to take it to the next level.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Muddy brown color, two-finger tan head that dissipatedquickly and left little film or lace. Aromas of dark ripe fruit, raisins, toffee, and brown sugar. Flavor profile features dark fruit sweetness, brown sugar and yeast, just a whiff of earthy hop bitterness. Medium to full body, big carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a lingering sweetness in the finish. I expected more.

From bottle. Dark brown color. Aroma is raisin, toffee, and dark roasted malt smokiness. Taste is a bit bitter at the beginning, giving way to some sweet toffee and plum notes. Finishes with some bitter chocolate and roasted malts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sacre Bleu pours a cola brown with a thin head on top. That yeast is in serious effect and it smells wonderful. Big banana and spice notes. Toast quality to it as well. Right in the sweet spot between carbonated and viscous. Really coats the tongue. For some odd reason I think of pancakes with this like itís a brunch beer. Really enjoyable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle served in a tulip. Pours deep opaque brown with a slight reddish tint and thin creamy off white head. Aroma is rich sweet lightly roasted malt with a hint of Belgian yeast. Taste is similar and matches the nose perfectly with rich roasty notes dominating up front, balanced by sweet cloves and slight bitter finish. 7.3% abv equals the richness. A bit atypical for Double Mtn., but really really good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at skylark. Mid brown pour mid cloudy. Aroma of leather smoke yeast. Tastes sharply of yeast, smoke, raisin bread. Less thick than usual. More palatable than I usually find dubbels due to lighter body and more than just malt flavors.
