3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Burien location. Clear brown but overcarbed head. It’s a very phenolicy beer. That’s better than being overly estry. I can handle the phenolicy and like the easier drinking, earthy quality, not sweet beer that it is. But really need to make it less phenolicy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark amber with a nose of sour cherries and generic dark malts. Flavor was lightish but sweet and biscuity malty with some light raisin and chocolaty notes. Kinda one dimensional and bland.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear brown color. Nose is more malt dominant, with some toasting and caramel elements to it. Feels slightly smooth, and has some light toasty elements, though it manages not to be sweet. Pretty decent beer.

An enjoyable dubbel. A little on the light side. A hint of plum in the aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the LCW. Pours a murky, burgundied dark brown with a dense and moussy tan head that fades to a light film of fizz before long. Overripe plums and overripe red apples on the nose, along with some husky palm sugar. Velvety, lively medium body. Overripe pitted tree fruit and husky palm sugar on the mid palate, with a fairly husky and even mildly acetic dark sugar finish. Not bad, could use a little fine-tuning to dial back the sugar and add some complexity to the other flavors.
