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.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Light haze on this deep red - amber beer. Bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is light and crispy. Light airy malt, mild cream. A strong flavour of hard candy sweets. Whisper of violets leads to perfumey floralness. Generic fruits. Light dry finish.

On tap...how can you go wrong with shisandra berries? This is a real spicy and less sweet Colorado version of a Dubbel and it comes off very well. However, now I’ll want my Dubbels to be equally as good as this...and that probably ain’t happening.

Cybercat (3333) - Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours a clear mahogany with a fairly thick light tan head. Aroma is fruity, mainly apple and sour cherry, with a malty underpinning. Flavor has a strong, somewhat sour fruity core, yielding notes of apple, banana and cherry, supported by a malty undertone and more than a hint of greenwood hops. Texture is rather lively and somewhat firm, leaving a sour fruit and greenwood finish. Go wild!

Scopey (6871) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to Kenny. It pours deep brown with a small off-white head. The nose is earthy, wood, brown bread, spice, raisin and candied orange peel. The taste is bitter-sweet, toasty, brown bread, raisin, warming alcohol, raisin, barnyard, spice and earth with a touch of warmth on the finish. Medium+ body and fine carbonation. Decent, but couldn’t drink too much.

Bottle shared in London - thanks to Kenny. Pours clear, rich amber with a creamy, tan head. The nose has dried berries, rich bread, currants. Medium sweet flavor with more dried fruits, dried berries, some herbs, a bit of brown sugar. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, some further toasty bread, aged fruits, mild alcohol, some pine and herbs, quite dynamic. Pretty drinkable.

Very nice. Comes together well with great wild hints of sourness. Some raison and floral hops mixed with berry and I even taste the cinnamon. Finishes sweet and sour. Thanks to Gendv138 for at taste of this at the Churchkey tap feature event.

An interesting take on the dubbel. Thinner than I would’ve thought but it has the dark fruit and candy sugar that’d you’d expect. Sweet and pepper aftertaste.
