3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pours a murky brown with a tan head. Aroma is super plum forward, I also get caramel, dark bread and some yeasty notes. The flavor follows the nose, chalky flavors, some dark bread, lots of plum and some caramel. The body is on the lighter side of medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a solid Dubbel.

Maroon body, with a decent head. Aroma is telltale dubbel plum melanoidin with a nuanced cigar box-aged quality and the feintest note of clove. The flavor too is of plum and melanoidins with a cherry and sugar finish.

"Another beer that seemed like they just threw some shit together to see what sticks. Not bad, but not good. Really didn’t know this was a "tripel" ipa. Kinda sweet, kinda sorta hoppy. Hey - it did cover the abv exceedingly well."
