3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Poured a hazy dark amber color with an average fizzy head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet malt and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Good caramelized sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet smooth finish of moderate duration. Interesting brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a slightly cloudy amber color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of dark malts, fruit and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of bready malt, raisins and yeast. The finish is fruity with an earthy yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Just a strong, smooth, drinkable dubbel that would be easy to down a 22 ozer of.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy amber brown with a grayish tan head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma was full of spice with some dark grains and a int of dark fruits. Flavor was similar with the same strong spice note with dark grains and bread as well as some dark fruits. The spice note was a bit strong for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Medium amber, slightly hazy. Raisiny sweet aroma and flavour, with a fairly strong spiciness. Metallic note in the finish. With so many other awesome brews in this joint, it’s hard for me to like this more. Plus, at this point in the evening, my powers of perception are admittedly waning....

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a growler the night before MWBBF at Perennial- thanks to the friendly Haymarket manager who shared it. Pours a cloudy tea color with no head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, brown sugar, and sweet bread. Flavor of caramel, raisins, apples, wood, and earth. Good Belgian yeast character for sure. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Nice dubbel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pete’s first beers. Pours a nice brownish pour, lighter amber notes pervade, with a touch of pink glow, a decent offwhite head that dies to a nice film, clinging head. Aromas are sweet bananas, brown sugar, caramel, Belgian candi sugar and spicy yeast. Doughy bread moves into the brew, sweeter sugars take over. Initial is a bit dry and deadened, some apples and pears, brown sugar and toffee, touches of spice, vanilla. Some real nice cocoa comes into the fold, chocolate and brown sugar, touches of fruity esters, light spiciness. Touches of vanilla yeast, light dryness. Really nice flavors, deepness. Not your typical spicy sweetness. Tasty
