COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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...

Poured from a bottle. Batch 276. Bottled on 22.04.10. Pours an amber orange with a fluffy head. Lots of aroma. Citrus and some floral. Not too bitter. Some odd flavor in reminded me is cured ham. Very malty. Somewhat sweet and medium bodied. Nice beer.

Batch 528, brew 12.10.12. I live the label, fingerprints on hops plants. Pours a slight off head, which hasn't dissipated at all. Huge aromas like suggested thanks to dry hopping. Lemon zest, mandarin, floral. On first taste I'm getting smokey flavours, and fruity, slightly dry mouth after and the bitters arent coming through. I'll let it sit and warm then I'm sure they will. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

hotstuff (3921) - Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Rated on 9-21-2009 (Bottle - Batch 150 Brewed: 05.04.08 Best Bef: 05.04.11) This beer forms a small beige head that quickly dissipated, hazy orange golden body, visible carbonation, and virtually no lacing. The Aroma is wheat malt, spicy, and floral hops. The Taste is sweet, fruity, spicy, and floral hops. This beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is not very hoppy for the style and something is just off with the taste of this beer. The flavors just do not mesh together at all.

Bottle at mane liquor. Pours a golden murky/hazy pour with a white head. Stone fruit and peach heavy on the nose. Biscuit malt and booze also prominent on the nose. Taste is very fucking chewy. Loads of bitter malt, biscuit and stone fruit. Over a year old, this drop holds up well. The booze is pretty well hidden too ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a bottle. First impressions that it pours very cloudy, lots of sediment. Great appearance. Frothy head, off white. Aroma was nothing to write home about. Mouth feel was top notch, very very drinkable in a lot of ways. Less powerful than I imagined in that it was mild and not boozy given that it is marked at 9.0 percent. I think I went into this beer expecting something different than it was, but was happy with what it is nonetheless.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Bottle 500ml @ home from Vinmonopolet. Looks like an IPA/DIPA should, hazy golden orange with medium head. Aroma is nice, sweet and hoppy, with fruits. Taste is very nice! I get fruity flavors with lots of hops. If no one had told me, I would have guessed that it was a slightly bitter IPA I was drinking. Speaking of bitterness, it actually presents itself in the aftertaste, in a good way off course. No doubt, Haandbryggeriet has done it again, delivering a quality DIPA!

Poured from a bottle at quenchers in Chicago. Why the hell the first rating. Wrong beer?? Bottle says double dram! Sweet plum and prune flavors. Mild hops. Dark cloudy pour. Don't love it but not bad
