3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4 oz sample at Iron Hill Maple Shade, New Jersey. The pour is a hazed golden copper with a light tan head. The aroma is dark fruit and Belgian candi / brown sugar. The taste is the fruit and Belgian yeast, mixed with a nice lightly roasty malt flavor. The palate is medium bodied, bright active carbonation, the Belgian yeast, plum, raisin and a hint of booze in the finish. Nice Dubbel, the roast gave it a unique character. This and the Black Tie were the class of the session.

Hazy reddish brown with thin off-white head; aroma of rubber; medium smooth body; Flava is sugary yet bitter hints of rubber; finishes dry and hints of soap. In all fairness I had this one after a delish flavorful beer so my palate might be off. Iíve had this before without rating it and I donít remember it tasting like this.

At the lancaster pub. First off, taste is much less refined than a real dubbel from the old country. More like an an american wannah be which I guess it is. Does have some manners but it does not hide its alky personality well. TRather strong overall impressions. Quite dark brown in looks. Has a volatile perfumay aroma. Some co2. Yes, need more manners. Needs to go to the old country to learn more about waha dubbel is all about.

Not a lot of aroma from my glass. Pours a light amber with a white head. The flavor is typical of the style. Very refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nutty/chocolatey brown with a brownish frothy head. Distinct fruity aroma and initial fruity taste which dissipates to a chocolatey, nutty, flavor. Medium bodied with a slight sugary sweetness to it (real sugar not that fake crap)

Pours a ruby/amber color with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has figs and spices. Flavor follows suit and adds a bit of underlying chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium/full and silky with a dry spiced/figgy finish that has a touch of bitterness.
