COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wild Colorado version of the Belgian Dubbel ropes you in with clove and dark fruit aromas. Deeply rich and malty, every sip has a creamy texture true to Belgian tradition before it rides off with hints of black pepper and cinnamon from the addition of shisandra berries.

bhensonb (11807) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours clear dark copper with a creamy yellow beige head. Aroma seems spicy cinnamon. Med body or better. Flavor is somewhat toasted malt, but there’s a peppery spiciness, and cinnamon is discernible. Could be a little darkish fruit. It’s pretty drinkable, but unusual.

notalush (5124) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Dark ruby pour - nose of cinnamon, clove, toffee, dough, moderate earthy wild yeast character - moderate carbonation, fairly creamy texture - flavor is moderately spicy (peppery), moderately phenolic, moderate toffee sweetness, mild cinnamon and clove, very mild wild yeast character - finish is lightly warming/spicy - nothing terribly complex, but pleasant enough - certainly a step above some of the other recent LOF releases.

rougeau13 (2079) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Clear reddish-brown with a big pillowy cream colored head. Light lacing. Aroma of sweet fruit, caramel, citrus, cinnamon, and slight funk. Tastes a little odd; there’s a weird sort of bitterness with some mild spice and funk and sweet fruit and malt. Medium bodied with fairly low carbonation. Ok but it’s muddy.

Really tame. Not as sour as expected. Spices are nice along with dark fruit flavors. Nothing special.

pete4999 (1159) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2013
On tap at Avenue Pub in New Orleans. I found this to be pretty unremarkable for the most part. I liked the description and have enjoyed most of the Lips of Faith beers I’ve had over the years, but this one didn’t do it for me. Felt like it was trying to straddle the line between dubbel and sour or something like that.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: 22 oz. bottle at MacDowell Brew Kitchen. It pours a dark amber color with a small head. Decent head retention though. Floral with light clove and fruit esters in the nose. Spicy Belgian yeast notes, dark fruit, pepper, and a light sweetness. Missing the funk on this one. Not very dynamic despite all the additions.

(Draught) dark brown with fine tan bubbles. Nose of raisin, Brett, cereal grain, banana, bit tropical. Taste of umami, sawdust, raisin, cardboard, weird, Brett.

Dark brown pour. Very opaque. Small tan head with just a bit of lacing. Not much. Perfumy aroma with some notes of chocolate and raisins. Taste is raisins up front. A little bitter. Some chocolate notes and fruity. Pretty tasty.
