HonkeyBra (3358) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Sampled at GABG2013. Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of raisins, very sweet belgian yeast, caramel sugar and malt. Some dark and dried fruit in the aroma. Flavor is shockingly sweet. It almost tastes like pure sugar. Some carame, some molasses and raisins but otherwise sugar. Medium bodied, I did not like this.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2013
(Draught) Pours a hazy brown body with a small cream head. Aroma of raisins, dates, plum, caramel, and brown sugar. Flavor of caramel, plum, chocolate, molasses, and raisins.

DesertDevil (503) - Arizona, USA - OCT 18, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Very dark burgundy in color. Dark raisin and caramel give the aroma a heavy sweetness. Sweet malt forward before the rich date and raisin flavors kick in. Medium body, but a very rich palate that seems that last forever. A bit of boozy heat - almost rum-like - creeps in late (more so than most dubbels). Another nice one from Fate.

adnielsen (9032) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2013
GABF 2013. Pours a reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Really nice dark fruity, grape/plum/raisin, candy sugar aroma. Slightly sweet flavor but held in check. Banana, chocolate, caramel, apple flavor. Really a nice dubbel that I would love to try again.

Ibrew2or3 (6862) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2013
The growler pours with a clear amber body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up caramel malts, mild Belgian yeasty spices and then prunes mixed with a faint ripe cherry note. The taste delivers molasses, prunes and a modest degree of Belgian yeasty spices. Around the edges I get a light amount of spicy black strap molasses drizzled onto graham crackers.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Dark mahogany pour with a scarlet, ruby, and garnet core, chestnut edges and a wispy eggshell crown. Just a spot or two of lacing inside the glass. Fruity, grape-infused, ripe banana, Belgian yeast, caramel and toffee aroma. Flavor is more plum, raisin, fig, plantain, white pepper, honey-baked biscuit, and brown sugar. A bit sweet but not at all cloying. Love that these guys aren’t afraid to approach a style. So lucky to have them in my backyard!

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 18, 2013
On draught at Fate. Pours a cloudy, muddy brown with a trim eggshell head. Aroma has something that smells like banana, but knowing the beer has raisin, the smell is distinct, spice, Belgian candied sugar. Taste is sweeter than most dubbels, but its not cloying. Just a little bit of hop bitterness and malt. Medium bodied and semi dry on the finish. Really quite tasty.

maley1 (781) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 16, 2013
Murky brown pour with small quickly dissipating head. Aroma of ripe fruit, most noticeable pears, figs and slight yeast. Taste of raisins, pears, slight yeast, hint of sugar cane. Softer carbonation, medium to thin mouthfeel. This is one awesome brew, every sip I caught myself saying to myself, WOW this is good!! Awesome stuff, brilliant!!

kcorum10 (325) - Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Pours a cloudy brown/maroon color with nice medium off white head. Aromas of sweet dried fruits and flavors of the same with some mild belgian yeast. This is a very solid effort for their first attempt. Keep up the good work.

JPDurden24 (1578) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Hazy brown pour with a small off white head. Sugary and sweet with some dates and dark fruits. A really nice and solid dubbel. Thoroughly enjoying it.
