COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double has undergone two fermentations, which gives this ale a chocolatey, toffee taste with a warming brandy-like finish.

Bottled. A dark brown beer with a purple hue and a nice off-white head. Thea roma had some pleasant sour aged thing going on (the BBE was March 05) . There is also some fruit and chocolate. All of this is replicated in the taste but the noticeable thing is how the character was woody and interesting, showing that the BBE is a fallacy.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2005
Deep amber-brown hue with an average sized off-white head. Caramel, chocolate, toffee, raisins, cobwebs. Quite simple, sadly. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish. Some plums come out in the flavor. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Some what stale tasting to me.

The bottle poured a dark amber-brown liquid with an off-white ample, creamy head. The head lasted throughout the experience leaving beautiful lacing on the glass. There were rich malt aromas with notes of warm raisins and black pepper. Somewhere in the background was the scent of clove as well. The body was full with a smooth texture and medium carbonation. The flavor started off with rich malt, sweet, dried fruits like raisins. In the middle, a slight clove flavor surfaces while the raisin fades but the sweetness persists. The finish is long and warming toward the end.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2005
Cloudy red brown, with a medium but long lasting head that laced well. Aroma of sweet toffee and caramel malt, but surprisingly the flavour is only slightly, and pleasantly sweet. Medium to full bodied, it’s a nice beer and quite drinkable, but not complex enough to rate too high.

Red/brown, small head. Fruity toffee aroma that also brings some cinnamon. Toffee in flavor as well, some fruit and some honey. Mild finish.

pilsnerrogge (2488) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2005
Red-ish brown colour. Rich head. Malty aroma with a sourish note. Malt and toffee flavour. Bitter finish. Drinkable but not spectacular.

yayforbeer (752) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2005
33cl bottle. Bottle date: 14-09-05 Sixpack purchased at Broudy’s, Orange Park Florida for $10.99 Foamy gusher on the open. After that, the beer poured nicely with a small but persistent tan head that laced beautifully. Aroma was musty malt and yeast, odd but not unpleasant. Flavor was very good, malty and sweet with a slight tartness and tingle on the tongue from the carbonation. Sweet dark fruits are predominant but not overpowering. A little bit of bitterness in the finish. Not spectacular, and not overly complex, but very nice and flavorful. Enjoyable and highly drinkable.

JoeMcPhee (8381) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
On tap. Very dark brown ruby tinted beer. Sweet malty aroma, cherry, honey, caramel, and a yeasty spiciness. Very fruity (plums, cherries, dates). Flavour is also sweet and full of dark fruit. Brown sugar, malted milk, and a bit of chocolate and toast.

Very dark colored beer. Hoppy aroma, flavour is both sweet and bitter. A watery mouthfeel. It’s a good beer, but it lacks complexity.
