3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
3 feb 2012, bottle. Red/amber, clear. Great nose. I’d almost say smells like a barley wine than a quad. Sweet, wet bread, warm cherries, alcohol and raisins. Great! Med/thin body and fizzy. Too fizzy for the beer. Sweet bready beer with not as much alcohol or taste complexity as I hoped.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured thin and chestnut brown, what little carbonation and head there is almost immediately clearing out. The aroma leans towards the expected brown sugary essence of many a dubbel, but is actually pretty restrained. The flavor boasts more aggressively, asserting a kick of acohol and cooked caramel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle, 2011. Pours dark amber, almost brown, very little head that retreats to a white ring, no lacing to speak of. Smells sweet, malty, caramel, mild alcohol. Tastes malty, caramel, gingerbread?, mild bitterness at the finish. Full bodied mouthfeel. Not bad for an american interpretation of the dubbel style.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Light spicy yeasty aroma with some sweeter and toasty malty notes. The flavor is on the bland side, with some light banana-like fruity sweetness, spicy yeast, and toasted malts. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very drinkable dubbel. Nothing extraordinary whatsoever. Clean yet nicely resiny aftertaste. This gets hurt by a bit of tweenerism. Not exciting enough to seek out but probably a bit sweet for session drinking.
