750 ml. bottle. (K05F9) Pours a thin short lived beige head, over a clear amber (SRM 7) body.....nose is toffee/caramel, raisin, plum, brown sugar......taste is sweet malts to start with light raisin, then bit of barnyard funk, finishing with a light astringent spice bitterness....mouth feel is light to medium, carbonation medium to high. This is definitely a Dubble. It is a bit over sweet, and the mouth feel is on the light side. BJCP 6/3/13/4/6

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear copper with a dense bubbly tan head. The aroma has toasted Belgian brown malt, candy sugar, Belgian yeast, nectar fruits and apple. Medium / thick body that’s on the cloying side with lots of carbonation that completely fills the mouth. The flavor starts with everything from the aroma notes, but there is a good amount of phenolic spice and it is drier than expected with some cracker notes. The finish is dry with some nuttiness, and lots of Belgian brown ale malt. Quite nice.

Bottle. Cotton candy, and by that I mean fruity sugar. More cotton candy. Musty malt tones, a combination of bread and basement. That combination though didn’t have so much to do with my lack of enjoyment as the oppressive cotton candy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours up an amber with a bit of red, with a thick white head. Smells of mild alcohol. Taste has a lot of body and complexity. Spices, mostly. Interesting beer, I didn’t expect this.
