COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich brown ale inspired by the enigmatic monastic brews of Belgium, and the mysterious mist shrouded jungles of the tropics. Brewed with real cacao, and spiced with cinnamon and sweet orange peel for a sensual delight. A brew to be sipped, savored, and enjoyed!

Bottle. Is there a JP ale that isn’t wonderful? If you can get past the description on the back of the label without either laughing or drooling, this is a very unique, awesome beer. I was tasting the cacao (I love saying that) for several minutes afterward.

Reddish brown color with a nice lasting white head. Spice and alcohol in the nose. Flavor is initially fruity but quickly moves to a yeasty alcohol.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - OCT 1, 2005
This brew pours an opaque brown with a tightly bubbled, large tan head. Nice up front slightly sweet flavor with notes of cinnamon. Finishes very cleanly. Very nice dubbel.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2007 Color is a muddy brown with a small head. Very enjoyable beer. Aroma of figs or raisins, chocolate, and a touch of spice(mostly cinnamon). As stated in the irishsnake’s review, this was a little thinner and not nearly a sticky as many dubbels tend to be. Moderately sweet finish.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 18, 2005
beer decants a quite murky, red-tinted brown, with a fizzy tan head that comes up quickly, but collapses just as fast. not a ton of lace. very nice nose, with a definate choclate aroma wrapping itself around some nice dark fruits. a somewhat earthy overall effect. beer’s flavor opens with an almost winey fruitiness, with a hint of the cinnamon, and moves on to a dry and chocolatey finish. pretty fizzy. nice beer over-all - not as sticky as the usual dubbel, and without the heavy phenols a lot of US dubbels have. still, kind of an oddity - the cocoa driness gives this a nice balance, but is perhaps a bit weird w/the fruitier elements.

MrDick (346) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Subdued flavors of chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg (probably the orange peel) and caramel. Medium body and nicely balanced. Thanks to Jerm for acquiring this beer for us to enjoy.

’05 GTMW sample. Clear amber body, thick tan head. Stemmy, spicey aroma of leaf, cinnamon, and malt. Similarly spicy flavor. Sharp graininess alogn with sour woodiness all tempered by chocolatei in the finish. Tasty, unique stuff.

Sampled at the Great Taste of the Midwest 2005. Dark orange or amber body with a lightly yellow head. The aroam was caramel and peanuts. Very sweet. The taste had toffee and some surprising citrus background. An interesting and solid brew.
