After all the delays, our Belgian Cherry Dubbel is finally pouring on the first of the month! A slight tartness from the hand picked local sour cherries lends itself well to the fruity yeast and sweet malt character. Pouring a beautiful reddish brown, this light bodied ale is deceptively easy to drink at 7.2% ABV

The beer looks decent with a nice deep brown and reddish hue to it that pass almost no light, has a mild reddish white head, and leaves almost no lacing on the glass. The smell is average with a mild coffee, sugary sweet, and sour cherry blend to it..its unfortunate because you donít a get a strong smell from any of them, somewhat mild. The beer is a strange blended taste as I instantly got a mild bitter cherry followed by a burnt coffee taste and a little nuttiness on the back end. The mouthfeel is average as the beer is decently carbonated but leaves a bitter coffe taste around. Overall, I was somewhat confused by the beer as they advertise CHERRY BROWN but beer is listed as Dubble with Cherries and I got almost no bits of a belgian couble at all, I got mild cherry and brown too...somewhat disappointing.

Had on cask at Albany Pump Station on 12/22/12. The C.H. Evans Belgian dubbel is interesting. It poured a nice dark brown with an amber/ruby hue; there is very little head, but that isnít unexpected because I had it on cask. It was very smooth, again I suspect because of the fact that it was on cask. There are some caramel and dark fruit notes present in the nose, but theyíre mainly subdued. The taste is particularly interesting, with the sour cherry elements working fairly well with the malty elements, the dark fruit notes, and the minor hop bitterness. C.H. Evans, as usual, has produced a beer that is interesting, but fairly boring; I enjoy their beers, but Iím not particularly blown away by this one.
