4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- poured a deep cloudy ruddy brown with a rich creamy cappuccino head. Great retention and big lacing throughout the beer. S-redolent with dark fruit (raisins and cherry), citrus, and spices. T- this is what a dubbel is supposed to taste like. The amalgamation of the ingredients is incredible, with no one flavor drowning out any one else but all of them harmoniously coexisting like a Belgian Beer commune. Fruit, spices, roasted malts all have a chance to move across your palate. M- full, with a slight slick unctuous character O- an outstanding example of the dubbel style.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured on tap into tulip. Pours a slightly hazy ruby brown with a reddish tan head. Aroma is sweet malty goodness, with hints of chocolate and dark stone fruit underneath. Taste is malty, bready, hint of dark malt bitterness, then a touch of yeast and esters at the finish. Darn delicious.

This really is the perfect example of a belgian style Dubbel Ale. The aroma is all yeasty goodness. One of the most beautiful hues of amber I've seen in a beer. This is one of my standbys...

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Deeply caramel flan and a sweet roasted sweetbread backing. Cannot go wrong with this beer, compare with other doubles side by side, you’ll see. Pair with a taco...really.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber orange with brown hues. Nose of caramel-covered cherry and prune. Flavor is semi-sweet caramel and dark fruits with a trail of toasted, almost roasted malt. Lingering toast and fruit. A touch sweeter than I would have liked.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
look: 4.5 smell: 4 taste: 4 feel: 4 overall: 4
Pours a cloudy neutral brown. Thick beige head that lasts a long time and leaves thick, fine lace on the glass.
An undercurrent of slightly soured cherry in the aroma. Light cream. A strong maltiness without the typical Belgian yeast aroma.
Strong alcohol warmth with a deep (dry) malt flavor. A rich brew, but the carbonation provides adequate balance. Big flavor that lasts through the aftertaste.
If you like this style, you’ll likely love this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours hazy, deep amber with an average sized, lacing, beige head. Aroma of toasted caramel, yeast, brown sugar and nutty notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry with bitter notes. Medium bodied, oily text and soft carb. An excellent dubbel.
