On cask at Max’s on Broadway. This maybe one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had. Beautiful hop aroma. Big flavor from those same hops without the bitterness. The thing even has a touch of sweetness to it. Since it’s practically at room temperature the flavor bursts forth and lasts a long time without being aggressive or overstaying its welcome.

On cask at Max’s in Fells Point, Baltimore, Maryland. Tried this on cask instead of the Plank II they had going as part of a promotional night, being that I’d had the Plan II at a different promo night at Alewife a couple weeks back (it’s good!). The ale was striking from the start with a bright copper, almost orange color when viewed while back-lit by sunshine/light. Found Dubbel Cannon to be exceedingly pleasant to drink, with a perfect marriage of hoppiness and maltiness, and as good a cask ale as I’ve had this side of the big drink (Atlantic Ocean)!

Wow! I really liked this beer. I had it on tap at Burgh’s Pizza and wings. A hoppy Belgium Ale, I was not expecting that. Probably because it is a variation of their "Loose Cannon" IPA” that is fermented with a Belgian Dubbel yeast culture –definitely has the tangy hops with a spicy aroma. I will more than likely buy a case of the brew. Great for IPA lovers.

I was expecting a golden amber color when I poured the beer, but the deep burnt orange body was a surprise. The head was small and carbonation mild, both of these lacking considering the IPA and Belgian heritage of the beer. The smell showed influences from both camps, with a hoppy citric aroma mixed with banana. The taste was similarly hybridized, with a BSPA like clean fruity and spicy taste blended with citric hop flavors. Unfortunately, the mouthfeel was somewhat watered down, and beer felt not as complex as it could have been, considering the ingredients. A nice diversion but more flavor would have helped tremendously.

Pours a deep orange brown with minimal head. Aroma is Cloves and spice mixed with pine. Basically a nice blend of an IPA with Belgian yeast. Actually it's a Belgian that I can drink like a session beer. Nice.

Spicy clove aroma. Amber color with creamy head. Caramel malt start which leads to a spicy clove flavor some basil notes then finishes into a piney hop flavor. I’ve tried a few beers of this style and this one is my favorite. The flavors meld together nicely.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark ruby amber color with a sturdy beige head. Nice sudsy lacing along the glass with a lasting head. I’m really digging the aroma. It has a complex mixture of Belgian yeast and spices with malty hop notes. Some expected hop bitterness in the finish, but balanced nicely with the yeast component. Goes down extremely smooth for 7.25%.

Growler from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA, opened 5/15/11. Pours a clear dark auburn color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of bitter earthy hops and lots of fruit notes including cherry and plum. The taste is citrus and tropical hop notes with a bit of caramel, spice and some dark fruits in the finish. Medium bodied. Quite nice.
