3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a really good dubbel. It is also a very risky dubbel. There is a wide range of flavors that, for some, would be too much. I really enjoyed it and thought it had a broad palate that was really strong.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Pours brown in color with a beige colored head. Nose is of cocoa powder, bready notes and faint Belgian yeast. Taste includes yeast spiciness, clove, cinnamon, dark fruits, brown sugar and molasses. Sweet fig and raisin comes out more as the beer warms. Faint alcohol notes in the finish. Decent.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 At Benelux in Milwaukee. Dried fruit a little booze and spices. Maybe some cola flavor? Thinner than many dubbels I’ve had. Serving: Tap

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m in a dark bar....clear brown with ruby tints, thin head that lasts. Aroma is light, sweet, raisin. Lightly sweet, raisin that lasts. Light-medium body. As I learn more about Belgians, this could get rated higher. I do like it, just not sure how it fits to style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Trocadero in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, approximately 12 ounce Goblet. Pour is a hazed chestnut brown along with a smallish off white head. Aroma is clove and spiced yeast, followed by roast malt, and a bit of sweet banana at the back. Taste is quite spiced, yeasty, nutmeg is present, along with spiced clove and the gentle roast of the nose. The fruit sweetness hangs around a touch in the back. Palate is medium to heavy bodied, soft carbonated mouth feel, and the yeast spiced finish with sweetness.
