Draught. Pours clear mahogany with a medium-low white frothy head, some retention with fair lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, fruity esters, plum, dates, lightly phenolic (peppery). Flavor is sweet caramel malt, low hop bitterness, nice alcohol warmth, and a dry finish. Medium-full body, sweet and dry with high carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery, but I think they called it "Dead Eye Dubbel." I’ll put this here because the specifics seem to match and the website lists it as "Dockside." Pours a very pretty, rich looking ruby-amber colored body with a billowing, pillow soft, creamy, two-finger width, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet and fruity with some rich caramels and a bit of a brown sugar sweetness. Plums, raisin, banana ester, and a touch of yeasty, earthy spice. Flavor is similar and very soft all-around. Lots of sweet plums, raisins, banana esters to go along with a rich caramel, toffee, brown sugar malt backing. A hint of roast comes out that I didn’t get in the aroma as this finishes dry with a slightly earthy, light spiced bitterness. Medium length aftertaste after a light to medium body and soft carbonation. Overall, a sweet, rich, soft, spicy dubbel in a lighter body, but very easy drinking. Their expansion is working out just fine.
