3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the GA Chaper Room. Pours muddy brown, with a rocky, beige head. The nose is caramel, cloves, pecans, some light oak, and pine sap. Sweet and malty up front, with a good bit of hoppy bitterness, especially as it warms. Medium to heavy body, with a creamy and smooth mouthfeel. Lightly bitter aftertaste. This is a pretty nice dubbel, with good malt character, the hops are more aggressive than I’d like for the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A great dubbel from Lost Abbey, so far a good track record from this brewery. A malty, deeply fruity and sugary brew. Almost like a dark dessert wine on the palate due to the presence of heavy raisin and fig notes. The aftertaste is of a deep malt, yeast and alcohol with the candied taste lingering. Overall makes for a delicious combination that is definitely to be savored. An excellent example of the Belgian style of brewing and another fine selection from Lost Abbey.

Tap at the brewery. Pint glass. Deep amber color with minimal off white head. Aroma is muted but has some nutty, roasted aspects. Taste is heavy on malty sweetness with caramel and subtle dark fruits. Coats the mouth in sugars. Spices are present. Solid dubbel by a brewery that exceeded expectations. Try it.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750mL bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is a rich, sharp fig and/or grape with a hint of alcohol, a light copper, and a light roast and light caramel late. It pours a murky brown red with a dense, off white head that has moderate retention and lace. The taste is a medium high bitter with a medium sweet. It’s creamy and oily with a fizz carbonation and a full, figgy boddy with light notes of biscuit. As it warms, flavors of caramel and tart grape juice become more apparent with a finish of pepper spice and copper, as well as wood. The dry aftertaste is long, bitter and astringent with a dry malt character, toast, pepper, and light copper.
