Large tan head, good retention, lacing is coating and lasting.Beautiful clear chestnut colred brew. Nose of lightly sweeet malts, molasses and a light dustiness. Body is medium, palate is creamy. Mildly sweet malts, hints of cocoa, dark fruits, molasses and caramel. Finish is almost dry. A nice enough Dubble.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Hazy, deep copper ale with a large, frothy, khaki head. Terrific, cumulus retention. The nose is slightly flemish and breadsy with a heapin’ helpin’ of pear and fig. Good balance in flavor. Lightly tangy with a touch of dark fruit and cocoa. A bit metallic. Medium-bodied and barely creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes funky and bone dry.

The taste is just the right bits of unsweetened chocolate and fine brandy, with a side of roasted barley to keep you sipping. A damn fine brew my lads.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark amber colour with a big rocky head that last right through to the end. Aroma of rasins, dried fruit and malt. Sweetish malt and rasin taste. Overall a decent beer but rather ordinary

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Smells a little fruity and off, but looks nice. I think this may have strawberry or raspberry hints, but this is truly one of my favorite doubles - top notch.

Surprisingly straight-forward dubbel...raisins/dates/dried fruits/coffee/toffee. Smoke? Somewhat thin in the mouth.
