4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served in a Duvel Glass around 10 degrees:
This is a doppelweizenbock that a good friend of mine bought me and the first of the style I try.
It pours a clouded amber letting loose some cherry wood highlights with about a finger of lightly tanned head. This head is finely structured and seems semi-unctuous, showing medium lacing and retention.
You get on the nose tons of fruit with a dominant aroma of candied banana, apricot and caramel or milk chocolate. The alcohol is noticeable behind all these appealing scents but not in a bothering way.
On the tongue, this brew offers a semi-sharp bittersweet attack from good roasted malts paired with a candied banana / milk chocolate backbone. The hops also contribute to the bitterness since they come through nicely the nutty aspect of the yeasts. The harmony between the malts and the sweet fruit is pretty good and leads the way to a mouthfeel best described as slightly oily and creamy. Finishes hoppy with strong vapours of alcohol I found enjoyable but perhaps throwing it a bit off balance. Just a bit really since it just delivers more corpus. This a generous brew I would recommend with semi-strong or strong cheeses like Saint-Damasse, Rouy, Oka, Champfleury and would pair it with grilled beef or chorizo.
Overall, this doppelweizenbock is a complex brew and I enjoyed it very much.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bière brune de 8 % d’alcool. Elle possède un beau col au versement. Elle possède un odorat sucré et céréalier. Elle possède un bon goût de banane en bouche, avec une amertume de petits fruits. Il y a aussi une petite touche poivrée, et une finale métallique. Il y a un bon goût crémeux style caramel. Très bonne !

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark copper with a really thin white head that fades into a small rim that doesn’t leave much lacing. Nose is of banana bread and really light spices, nice. Taste is of same banana bread and light toffee, not too sweet but still really malty. Some cloves. Body is medium-full and mouthfeel slightly syrupy. Carbonation is moderate and alcohol pretty well hidden. Overall a fine weizendoppelbock or whatever that is and most certainly the most interesting BdT I’ve had yet. I’d drink that again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Par chance, je n’avais pas lu l’étiquette avant de déguster!! Je n’aurais donc pas pu découvrir par moi-même ce parfum de banane, caramel, alcool et levure si agréable. Au goût, c’est très mordant et épicé et la finale s’adoucit en devenant plus sucrée. Me rappelle un peu (pour certains aspects) la 17 d’Unibroue...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
These guys are now 3/4 in their sampler back, for my money. Ironically the one beer I thought I’d enjoy most (Diable au Corps) was the one I enjoyed least (it’s still aight, though.
This pours a dark, reddish amber with a bit of off-white head. Nose is busy, but complementary. Ripe bananas, caramelized sugar, raisins/dates, dough and spices and a bit of alcohol. Taste is sweet, fruity malt, lots of banana, caramel, roasted nuts, spiced raisins - the effect is almost like Branston Pickle without the vinegar element. Alcohol is barely noticeable but well-concealed, and the finish has a bit of dryness that wraps everything up nicely. Really enjoyable.

Dumduminator is an 8% doppelweizenbock which poured a clear amber brown with a filmy beige head. The aroma was of a caramel coated banana bread while the taste was the same with added nuts & spices. Solid.
