3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap. Dark brown pour, opaque, good lacing, medium tan head, oyster head. Good aroma--alcohol is definitely present in the beginning and middle. It tastes the part, definitely not as good as we’re used to (NEW belgium, emphasize the NEW). Pleasant, somewhat bready with a farmhouse taste. Better than almost every other american dubbel i’ve had. Put more candy in it though!

Bomber. Poured deep ruby with a creamy beige head. The aroma picked up slightly funky plums and meaty biscuit with some clove and nutty accents.. funky and very interesting. The flavor found dry fruity funk and redder fruits throughout.. toasted dark fruit and nutty notes supported.. finished dry and fruity, picking up light peppery spice. Fairly filling on the palate.. creamy carbonation.. funky and interesting.
