On tap at Moose. Reddish brownish. A bit watery for an X-mas beer. Maybe a bit of ambiguous x-mas spices in the background somewhere. Not a good beer. Not bad, I guess.

Blueshawk (397) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- braun-rötliche Farbe mit leichter schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Dörrobst, Honig, Karamell und Apfelmost - die Carbonisierung würde ich mir für diesen Biertyp etwas geringer wünschen - was die Aromen versprechen hält der Antrunk dann auch - ein guter honiger Malzkörper gut eingebettet in ein Hopfenbukett - im Mittelteil bleibt der Körper schön voll und gehaltvoll - gegen Ende noch eine interessant säuerliche Kirschnote Fazit: Ein richtig gut gelungenes belgisches Dubbel

Copper color. Medium carbonation. Has a rich caramel aromas that dominates, with a bit of dried fruit, no hop aroma. I think my bottle had some oxidized cardboard smell. Very sweet up front, some clear spice additions, has a chocolate finish. Bit of acidity in the middle and a tartness in the finish. A hint of herbal hops. Some phenolic bitterness and roast flavor. Oily body. Good beer, but lacks the complexity to be special.

Bottle. Malty, sweet dubbel. A bit thin in terms of body, and pretty plain in flavour. Disappointing, I thought there would be a bit more spice to it.
