COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dubbel Doppel
How better to celebrate the evolution of the year than with recipes inspired by generations of the original craft beer warriors, the Monks! Top with a healthy dose of Shmaltz and witness the rebirth of Rejewvenator! "The winter of bondage has passed, the deluge of suffering is gone, the Fig tree has formed its first fruits, declaring all ready for libation." -Song of Solomon. Dates were used to sweeten beer in Ancient Egypt as early as 3500 BCE. Genesis 3:7: "Their eyes were opened, and they knew that they were naked; they sewed fig leaves and made themselves aprons." Queen Vic commissioned an 18" plaster fig leaf for her cast of Michelangelo’s David. "The statue that advertises its modesty with a fig leaf brings its modesty under suspicion." -Mark Twain. Under a fig tree, Romulus and Remus, mythical founders of Rome, were nursed by a she-wolf and worlds away Buddha found enlightenment. Zechariah: "Nations shall beat their swords into plowshares - all will sit with their neighbor under a fig tree, never afraid." Mohammed: "Whoever eats seven Tamr (dates) at breakfast shall rise above magic and poison that day." The Hebrew word for Date palm "Tamar" connotes a woman’s grace. "The only difference between a first date and a job interview is not many job interviews have a chance you’ll end up naked." Jerry Seinfeld. Psalm 92:12: "The righteous shall flourish like the Date palm." Thankfully all we need to do is pop open a bottle and rejoice... L’Chaim!

Bomber. Sweet dark fruit aroma that includes date and fig notes. Pours dark amber colored with moderate beige head and some lacing. Malty, dark fruit flavor with date and fig notes. Finishes smooth with the dark fruit lingering on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ughsmash (7098) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Bomber. Poured clear garnet with a creamy, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up sweet raisins, dates, figs, and molasses with spicy, fruity accents.. fresh vanilla beans rounded it out.. quite sweet overall. The flavor found tart darker fruit skins and peppery yeast on the tip of the tongue, with warm dates, molasses, and vanilla following.. toasted leafy notes joined grainy, but complementary herbal bitterness around.. finished with lots more sweetness and peppery belly warmth.. tasty stuff! Medium-plus bodied with moderate-plus carbonation.. well-balanced, but again just a hair too sweet.

rumproasts (2734) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Tap. Coppery brown with small head. Sweet with some raisin and fig. Strange, but not unpleasant spicing.

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 3, 2013
22oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 42°. Color is a dark ruby with good carbonation and a small tight tan head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. It has a bold medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is deep and rich with dried fruits and brown sugar, then a bit of Belgian yeast on the end. In the after taste a mild bitterness shows giving a nice balance to the sweetness. Overall its a good brew, a very well done blend of a Dubbel and a Doppelbock.

camborne (655) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Sour dark fruit funk nose. Lots of dark fruit on palate with some sweet malts. Sour finish that carries on long. Worth a try

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUL 21, 2013
My least favorite in the series so far. Very good though. A still beer. Smells delicious like all the others with big big figs and dates! Man I love that. Burnt caramel. A rich beer. Has a fruit skin bitterness. Boozy.

Butters (3733) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Clear brown pour with slightly purple highlights and ring of light tan head. Figs and earthy sweetness, like molasses, and just a very slight hint of peat. Maybe some bubblegum/banana flavors hiding in there also. No alcohol burn or booziness. Fairly tasty, and i did enjoy it, but it was not as good as several other of their brews. Maybe with some age this will do better.

Tmoney99 (10445) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average to large frothy tan head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate complex toasted dark fruit, malt and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy balanced dark bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

ok..so I’ve had some of the hebrew beers before, and they were just plain old not good. Some how this brewery has manged to pump out this gem! Full bodied, hoppy, perfectly balanced. Wow! I never would have thought they could make a brew this good! Perfect balance of malt and hops, nice body throughout, and a delicious finish!. I’m blown away!
