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.

Ughsmash (7008) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 20, 2014
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.

RedSox2004 (1139) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 18, 2014
On tap at The Daily Pint. Hazy ruby red color with a two finger dense light khaki head with solid retention and very nice lace. Aromas of dark fruit - raisin, plum, berry - with notes of clove, pepper, caramel, toast and candi sugar. Flavors are similar, with malt, yeast and spice notes; raisin, plum, red berry, pear, apple and grass are detected as well as a slight fruity tartness at the end. Medium body, lively carbonation, smooth yet prickly mouthfeel and a crisp finish.

Beerandhockey8 (196) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 12, 2014
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.

[Tap] Mahogany pour with white head. Spicy phenols and light funk aroma. Sweet toffee, nutty malts, clove and dark fruit taste. Average mouthfeel. Sweet finish. Lingering cinnamon. Could stand to be a bit more balanced. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle:   Smooth soft Dubbel, pale breadiness, lots of clove, some dark pitted fruit.   Spicier than most, less heavy, smooth.   As it warms a bit of cinnamon comes out.   Interesitng beer, not too musty nor heavy, less of the breadiness and dark pitted fruit albeit it is there, but moreso spicy.   Entertaining.
