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.

Bottle shared by Nick. Clear garnet pour with white head, irregular lacing. Aroma: garbage. Sweet caramel, dough, dark fruits cloves all sitting atop a rotting pail of garbage. Taste: dark fruits ... Moderately sweet, surprisingly dry finish. Clove spice finish. Palate: slick oily texture, medium body, average carbonation. Overall: by "garbage" I don’t mean "infected" -- I mean it smells to me completely unappealing and gross. Just to be clear -- I think this is bad, not necessarily flawed.

The aroma is weak but has nice caramel malt, spice, and fruit. The appearance is brown with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall not bad and the alcohol is well hidden.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Dark Mahogany with decent head and good lacing. Nice dark fruit aroma. Taste doesn’t match aroma: surprisingly dry with light tanins; pleasant though. Clean finish.

islay (1213) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Majority of a 22 oz. bottle. Sweet, slightly funky, yeasty, tart aroma features scents of candy sugar, banana, cinnamon, and lip gloss. Complex and enjoyable smell. Pours a clear, medium brown with an amber hue and a moderate to large amount of taupe head. Produces extensive lacing. Looks good in the glass. Flavors of leather, spices, bark, pine needles, gin, chocolate milk, and lemon. Slightly savory. I do get a hint of non-descript berry sweetness. Dry, spicy finish. Okay tasting but doesn’t go far enough for a wild beer. Medium to full body. Frothy in the palate. Ordinary palate effects. A mixed bag (or should I say a mixed bottle?) overall.

OmegaX (1276) - Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle from ABC Lake wales. Nose is cherries, dark fruits, some light spices, Belgian yeast. Flavors are less fruity but very similar. It’s a good dubbel.

Gription79 (2296) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber,Thanks Nick. Starts with a noticeable funk, dark stone fruits, cherries. This is unbalanced towards the funky side making it hard for me to drink.

VsXsV (2409) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2014
Sample at SBWF ’14. Bottle. Almost clear brown liquid with small white head. Aroma of light vinegar, dried fruit, red berries, raw sugar and grain. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of dried fruit and light vinegar. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Not that good...

joet (2208) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Brilliant amber pretty fine and frothy persistent lightly resinous foam. Definitely strange. Tobacco aromas, books, woody, viney, port, red grapes, finishes sweet and lightly astringent

dresden (909) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Mahogany. Aroma of vegetables, cinnamon and pepper. Off putting. Flavour is much better, malty with some spices and berries. Not bad, but the aroma killed me.
