3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark yet clear cranberry-orange with a fluffy tan head. Aroma: toasted raisinbread, bubblegum, a dash of pear juice and pink peppercorn. A bit of nuttiness as well. The flavor replicates all these up front, but the follow-up isn’t quite there -- bit of a weak finish. Mostly dry, with lingering phenolic and toasted malt character. Pillow-soft medium-light body with excitable fizz and imperceptible ABV. Drinkable.

My first experience with a Dupplebock. pours a very clear copper color, joined by a strong pleasant dark chocolate aroma. tastes of the dark chocolate are combined with the presence of fruits , chocolate covered strawberries, raisins or dates. Touch of bitterness that quickly finishes smoothly with no harsh aftertaste. Definitely looking onward to more examples of this variety.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle into tulip glass, clear rusty-amber color with tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness, banana, cocoa, dark fruits, candy sugar, dried fruits and yeast. Taste adds toast, light spices, slightly vinous, brown sugar and light earthy bitterness. Medium body, low carbonation, soft, dry with caramely-sweet, light spice finish. Pretty tasty dubbel, maybe a tad on the sweet side.

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 that’s also why I didn’t love it. I guess I expected it to be just a little better? But at the same time, I didn’t. Had a lot of good aspects but also felt like it was blended with a hefe. Not a bad thing, just interesting. I’m 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.

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.
