3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a chalice. Pours a ruddy mahogany with a thin off-white cap of foam on top. This fleets away quickly, leaving just bits of lace on the glass. Aroma of fig, raisins, yeast, syrup, wet hay. Moderate body bolsters this beer. Not overly carbonated as some tend to be. Rich syrupy finish.
Dark fruits pervade. Fig, plum, toffee, bits of ginger, rounded out with a touch of spicy yeast. This isn’t overly "Belgian" by any means. Definitely an American stab at it, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. A good representation, and a tasty cap to my evening. I think this would make a good one to draw someone into these Abbey-styles. Nice work, FF.

On tap at Philadelphia International. Ruby dark in the glass. Nose is malty sweet. Palate is all Belgian. Sweet malty goodness. Syrupy. Not cloying. Not as complex as I hoped, but decently balanced to style beer.

Pretty generic for the style, taste is about what you’d expect. Some banana and clove, honey malt, and I get a bit of bubblegum too. Not great, but certainly drinkable. And only $8.99 for a six pack; you won’t find too many Dubbels for that price.

Very good aroma and flavor. Has a sort of grainy Barleywine nose to it. Belgian candy taste and pretty strong alcohol scent.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Alexei and Raphaela’s. Thanks Trapped. Headless clear brown. A little roasty, some burnt caramel aroma. Sweet burnt caramel taste. Fizzy, light-bodied, a little alcoholic finish. Feels amateurish.
