3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- Tootsie rolls, nutmeg, leather, raisins, dark fruits, banana.
A- Dark reddish brown color, clear liquid, tan head.
T- Dark fruits, raisins, tobacco, spices, chocolate, banana, bubble gum.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish.
O- This was a good beer from a reputable large scale brewer but thatís also why I didnít love it. I guess I expected it to be just a little better? But at the same time, I didnít. Had a lot of good aspects but also felt like it was blended with a hefe. Not a bad thing, just interesting. Iím still debating how I feel as I submit this rating. I think I could rate it as much as 0.5 higher but also 0.2 lower.

One of the most convincing American dubbels out there. Very well-balanced, hides the alcohol really well with a candi sweetness. Rich dark fruit flavors.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of banana, clove and brown sugar. Pretty translucent brown color with off white foam. The taste brings everything out from the aroma but is subtle, not overwhelming. Dubbel is not always my favorite style, but this is well done.

Awesome beer. Imbibed it last night but wasnít really paying attention to anything but taste (thus the middle ratings). Canít remember it enough to describe it except that I truly enjoyed it.
