Dobbel Dose or Dobbel Dram is a double IPA made with european style hops rather than US hops. This beer is also heavily dryhopped in the aging tank for the extra hop taste and aroma.
9% alc. 82 ibu and 22 ebc. Made from Maris Otter malt, wheat malt and Crystal.
Serve at 10-12C or 50-55F. Goes well with spicy food and grilled meat. American Bottle Label -- "Double Dram" is made with more of everything, including all the hops the Hand Brewery’s tiny brew-kettle can take. Feisty American hops for bittering are followed by noble Fuggles and Styrian Goldings for a spicy, flowery aroma. As tradition dictates, this is an exceptionally hardy brew, made to weather the long, hard ocean voyage to anywhere...

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2014 Gift from wife, she insisted I drink it blind (ie she soaked off the label and insisted I rate it before she tell me what I was drinking) What follows is from my notes: Copper color with white head. Fruity malty aroma. Heavy malt and dried fruit flavors, plenty of booze up front. Spicy bitterness that carries through to the finish. Lots of earthy bitterness lingers. A beer for those of us that like very bitter beer.

"Piney and malty sweet aroma and flavor...more so than I prefer but not bad. Dark and cloudy for the style. I still prefer the west coast or other hop bombs to this. Double IPas are for hop fiends after all, but his is not a bad brew."

MunBro (820) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Aroma of those sweet, sweet Norwegian hops. Very nice golden pour with a 2 finger white head, nice lacing. Very nice European IPA, has a nice sweet hop flavor with some malts and ABV burn backing it up.

MrBeerFanatic (901) - Friona, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Cloudy dark copper/amber with a boozy head. Aromas of slight fruity apples, toffee, caramel, zesty flowers. Flavors of floral hops, toffee, caramel and slight alcohol in the nose. More malty than hopppy. Medium to high sweetness. This may have sat on the shelf for too long. Medium bitterness.

Barwa: głęboka złocista barwa, lekko zamglona. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita, utrzymująca się i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: wyraźnie alkoholowy, nieco słodowy (zbożowy) oraz chmielowy (trawiasty, ziołowy, kwiatowy, nieco owocowy, cytrusowy, leśny). Smak: pełny, słodowy, słodki, wręcz gęsty. Następnie chmielowa kontra, ale goryczka najwyżej średnia. Posmaki cytrusów i owoców tropikalnych z lekko alkoholową końcówką. Jeszcze jedno piwo z HaandBryggeriet, tym razem imperialne IPA. Barwa i piana są bez zarzutu. Aromat niestety zdominowany przez alkohol, który przykrywa w dużej mierze nuty słodowe i chmielowe. A szkoda, bo dzieje się tam sporo, ale przebicie się przez nuty wręcz spirytusowe jest trudne i niezbyt przyjemne. Odłączając powonienie nie jest już tak źle, ale chyba nie o to chodzi, żeby pić piwo bez aromatu.
