This Belgian style dubbel is puntastic! Dark malt and dark, ripe red fruit flavors comingle with spicy qualities from the Belgian yeast.

Kevin put on his monk robe for our take on the Belgian Dubbel. A rich malty beer with a nice spicy citrus tones in part to the added coriander and Belgian abbey yeast.

Draft at the Funky Buddha Lounge. They brought this one back last week for the first time in a few years. Snifter pour is dark brown with a one finger white head. Some sporadic lacing. The aromas was very true to the style with the candied sugar sweetness, mild spices, Belgian yeasts, dark breads, and leather. The taste was also very true to the style with the traditional Belgian yeasts, bread, dark candy sugars, caramel, and malt goodness. Medium body and thick mouth. Finish is sweet and yeasty. Well done indeed.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Draft… Mostly clear, deep, dark crimson ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. Smells a bit like a black Ipa with musky, earthy hops accompanied by black and chocolate malts. Medium-bodied with a fatty mouthfeel and vibrant carbonation. Unlike the nose, the flavor tastes nothing like a black Ipa (or a dubbel, for that matter) – toffee and caramel are balanced nicely to form a sweet concoction that I can only describe as an imperial amber. Finishes sweet and a touch fruity, like some sort of dark red berry. Smells like it looks, but tastes neither like it looks nor smells. Odd bird, this one.

Interesting beer here. Kind of a bittle muddled right now. Fruity esters and rather sweet, lacking some of the more belgian qualities that even Barefoot Buddha had. Still good, just didn’t impress me. I was hoping for something like Barefoot Buddha except less sweet and toned downed slightly. That wasn’t what this was.

On draft for Funky Buddha’s 1 year anniversary. Got a small sample of this while I was in between beers. Nice malty fruity flavors abound in the aroma and flavor. A subtle spicy tone that lingers on the back end. A very solid showing here.
