Wow did New Belgium nail this one.
Rich spicy, fruity notes accompany a dark mahogany pour with rapidly dissipating but lingering head.
Mouthfeel is malty effervescence in perfect balance with subtle fruits and spice.
This is a dubbel that should be enjoyed with spicy food, as its lingering pepper notes really work.

On tap at Big Texas Beer Fest. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma and flavor have some caramel and toffee notes as well as some brown sugar character. In the flavor I also get a hint of cinnamon as well as some dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Had a hint of bandaid aroma. No bueno. It was cloudy brown with an off white head. A medium body accompanied with low carb made this brew in my eyes very average. Buy it try it

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!

BTBF. Cloudy, murky and maroon pour. Light aroma, maybe a touch of band-aid in this. Wood, yeast and brett can also be smelled. Flavor is woody, tart, Bretty, yeast with a very dry finish.
