3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium brown with a reddish hue and a large (2-3 finger) off white rocky head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing that left behind some nice residue which was left sticking to the glass.
The aroma was of a mild caramel malt, a light resin hop and a sweet yeast with notes of banana, maple syrup and some dark fruit with a mild alcohol tinge.
It tasted malty sweet with a hint of caramel and a touch of syrup in the beginning and finished about the same but with notes of banana, some fruitiness and a mild alcohol warming at the end. The flavor was left lingering on the taste buds for a nice long while along with the mild taste of alcohol.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body, creamy and a little syrupy in texture with a nice mild carbonation.
Overall a very pleasant tasting Dubbel, not to sweet with a mild alcohol finish. A good representation of the style and a very well balanced brew.

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.

Poured bright reddish, frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet berries and candy. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, a bit cloying.

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 wasn’t really paying attention to anything but taste (thus the middle ratings). Can’t remember it enough to describe it except that I truly enjoyed it.

Some good bang for your buck. Most places sell this at the same price as all other 6-packs and at 7%ABV this can be efficient.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tawny appearance with a large beige head that faded quickly and left spotty lacing. Yeasty aroma of dark fruit and light spiciness. Residual sweetness in the flavor as the caramel malts show up. Spicy notes found in the aroma are still there along with a hint of tobacco. Faint herbal hop presence in the aftertaste. Creamy, medium bodied mouthfeel and a long lasting finish. A great bargin.
