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...

En syrlig lite obalanserad dipa med en jraftig kantig beska. En hyfsad öl som inte når några större höjder.

stefannilssons (1309) - SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2013
Det här var en trevlig öl med en balanserad smak som bar funkiga och grapfruktiga toner. Slutsats; Inget som imponerade men gott var det!

stravale (1898) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle from Nina’s Edinbrurgh [160613] Bottled 16/01/12
Dark amber, some haze, streaming carbonation from glass bottom, big frothy white head, good lacing
Aroma - very soft orange, some soft citrus, soft sweet fruity malts, quite light aroma, some alcohol
Taste - Soft sweet quite fruity caramel malts, touch of orange, mellow citrus, dab of spicy hops, alcohol quite noticaeable, mellow smooth malts
Palate - Medium carb, medium to full body, very oily texture, smooth malts. Finish as main flavour, sweet bit orangey caramel malts, warming alcohol
Overall - It’s old now and has lost it’s hoppiness, quite boozy but smooth and easy to drinking. Drinking more like a quite decent barley wine now.

Aged draft at Farmers Cabinet. Nice dry florals off the nose. Poured a hazy amber with an off-white foam. Fruity bit dry. Apricot ears. Oak notes. Sweet hibiscus with very dry Chardonnay. Complex vanilla oak brew.

VictorStr (992) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2013
Lugna och dova toner. Relativt balanserad. Smaken lite mer jäst, beska och syrlighet. Hade gärna sett att det var lite mer tryck i både aroman och smaken.

500 ml bottle from HWC. Batch 434 which apparently is from January 2012? Well it tastes like it. Again, I am not sure about the date of bottling. This is not a good beer. Pours a cloudy orange color with a tiny white head. The aroma is oranges and dust. Sweet British hops, odd almost sour bitterness, light sweet malts. Really a mess. Hot, oddly unbalanced. Now, I suspect this is quite old. A date would really help.

Brenhophead (524) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2013
1L squealer. Pours cloudy with almost no head and i have fears the beer maybe flat. Aroma is citrus/spice with burnt caramel backing. very faint carbonation which is disappointing. Big zesty flavour with a hit of alcohol and caramel. I’m sure this would be much better fresh from the brewery.

NBird (290) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2013
Hazy golden yellow, with sml-med head. Smells.. Hoppy but malt and caramel dominates the aroma - especially as it warms. Tastes.. Ripened stone fruit, caramel, some piney and resinous hop characteristics and a bit of booze.
