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.

From 22oz bottle to tulip glass. Pour is a dark hazy brown with a small tan head. Aroma is malty, figs, banana, spicy. Taste is bitter, medium bodied with some fruity sweetness mixed in. Fizzy carbonation which is complimenting and adds another dimension. Nice clean finish, pretty good beer.

Slight lacing.Aromas of Belgian yeasts, dark fruit with mere suggestions of raisin & spice notes with clove, lighter cinnamon. Flavors of roasted malt up front with muted fruit notes. Yeast forward. Clove, allspice, cinnamon. Some leather and chocolate pop up at the end. Alcohol is well hidden, moderately high carbonation.

From bottle. Wild yeast is more obvious (too obvious) in the aroma than in the flavor. Distinct, moderately complex flavor. Very nice mouthfeel with medium body and medium high carbonation.

Thanks Adrien for bringing this one out. bomber, split 5 ways. pours a dark mahogany. smells pretty funky. a little bathwater smell but earthy, mulch like and sweet. Explosive mouthfeel. Berry / fruit up front. finish is peppery, doughy, bread-like. not sour, jus a little funky.
