As charismatic and bold as "The Mother" herself, this dark belgian ale is brewed with dark candi sugar and is sure to be known as "The most dangerous beer in America!í.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 Had at the brewpub. Although I enjoyed this beer it was a bit thin compared to some other dubbels. Didnít have the spicy warmness of flavor that some dubbels have. Almost a bit too tart? Serving: Tap

Tap at the brewery - hazy amber - decently done for the style - a lot of earthy, dusty basement yeast qualities add a fair amount of depth - some fruity easters and clove and pepper phenols - all kept in decent balance - malt character is a little lacking - some dark fruit, but overall a little flabby - decent otherwise.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish brown pour with off white head, aroma brought big caramel, toffee, slight dark fruit, hints of earth, spice into a bit of slight banana in there, touch of nutty notes. Taste was a mix of sweet dark fruit, caramel, toffee, some spicy clove, touch of banana into a bit of nuts, finishing sweet.

[Tap] Pours a chestnut brown color. Not much head on top. Sweet caramel, brown sugar and light booze in the nose. More caramel, unrefined sugar, caramel and dark fruit in the taste. Lighter alcohol notes and a somewhat grainy finish. Pretty good.

Location: Draft at the brewpub, 5/28/14

Aroma: The nose is sweet malts, caramel, brown sugar, spice, yeast, and some dark fruit
Appearance: It pours a hazed amber-brown color with a fizzy off-white head and average lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, rich malts, dark fruit, banana, spice, and brown sugar
Palate: The body is medium, it has some stickiness, and a has a smooth mouthfeel
Overall Impression: I thought this was a very solid example of the style. It may be a bit too sweet, but that is on-style too. Pretty solid stuff, especially for fans of the sweeter Belgian styles.

brokensail (12222) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 20, 2014
On tap @ Haymarket. Amber/brownish colored beer with an off-white head. Heavy raisin, plum, and banana fruitiness. Sweet caramel and brown sugar, some toffee, and baked apples. Flavor is very sweet and fruit forward. Tons of dark fruit. Brown sugar, banana, raisin, and cola. A hint of chocolate and lots of caramel. Too sweet for me.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Draft at the brewpub. Snifter, nice brown hue with fluffy head. Spicy aroma, malty, brown sugar. Thick body, taste profile is also spicy yeast, bready, good carbonation to balance the malty sweetness. Very enjoyable.

ARH (707) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2014
On tap, poured into a 4 oz sampler glass. The aroma is a combination of grape candy, caramel syrup, and figs. It pours a clear, but dark caramel body with a fluffy, whipped ring of head. It does leave behind some light, micro bubble lacing. The taste is highly sweet with a light bitterness. Itís a full body beer with a grainy texture, and creamy carbonation. If finishes with sweet caramel, figs, and grain. The figs and roasted grain linger a bit in the aftertaste (the grains longer than the figs).

Dfonorow (1676) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2014
On tap @ Haymarket. Pour is hazy amber with no head. Aroma is sweet - raisins, dried fruit, apples, caramel. Flavor is also on the sweeter side with added notes of yeast, nuts, and earth. Strange metallic and spice on the finish.
