2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours deep amber/brown with a thick off white head. Aroma is fruity...raisin and fig. Flavor follows suit...super faint tart and leather too. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a dry/earthy/dark fruit finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy brown with a decent off white head. Aroma is paint, sherry, caramel. Reasonably thin on the body, has a nice tang on the palate. Taste is sherry, grape, little spice. Nice but not much like a Dubbel - not much like a beer at all actually.†

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Horrid. Molasses, medicine, and a fake juice aroma mixed with something approaching plum. Medium bodied and amber appearance.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark amber with a 3 inch frothy head. Laces really well. Smells like plum juice with a hint of belgian yeast and light malt. The flavor is mostly sweet with some toasty malt. Palate is a bit harsh. Finish is just lightly malty. Not a whole lot going on in the hop arena.

Pours very dark, almost black, with a nice tan head. Aroma is thin. Taste is pretty good for a gluten free beer. Slightly dark dubbel taste. Thumbs up for the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Feb 2010: Brown 33cl bottle, drank three days after its best before date. This is gluten free, wheat free ídouble dark beerí.
Dark it is, very dark indeed, a really deep ruby red colour to be truthful, with a tan collar and wisps.
The smells given off where complex and different, chocolate malts and liquorice, then more chocolate, dark chocolate actually.
The flavours were deep and rich, again a mix of chocolate and liquorice.
Good feel to this beer, rich, creamy and full of flavour.
Didnít expect anything as good as this when I bought it, very impressed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
So this was my first Gluten free beer and it wasnít as bad as I thought it would be. Its certainly unfair to compare this versus other true Belgian dubbels or other dark true beers. Comparing it versus Redbridge would be a better way to rank this. With that caveat, lets get into it.
Pours dark brown with a thick creme colored head. Toasted malt aroma with vinaigrette dressing notes. Flavor of molasses and raisins and red wine.
