Darker belgian ale. Not much of a head with almost no staying power. Minimal lacing. Nose is similar to most sweeter belgians I’ve had, fruity with a hint of malt and caramel. Taste is nice not bitter at all (13 ibus...) but still manages a nice hoppy taste. Malt is subdued but definitely there the sweetness shows through with just a hint of wheat and alcohol at the finish. My first petoskey beer and definitely will not be my last!

Way too sweet, and very metallic. Pours out dark amber with small beige head. Aroma is iron and rust. Taste is more of the metal with some rock candy sweetness . Finish is blunt and more metal. Served ice cold from a can which may be part of the problem.

Muddled, burnt sienna body with a fleeting, light khaki foam color on top. Aroma full of gummy esters, sticky toffee candy, red licorice, taffy, & mild back-end phenols. Taste has plenty of toffee & Belgian Candi sugar with a notable dark fruit & sweet date essence. Somewhat sweet, but not too overdone given the style. Possibly more than a dubbel, but not quite at quad levels, either. Phenolic yeast & lightly spicy esters in the finish. Medium/light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice malt heavy beauty. Drank out of a can to celebrate finding the oldest Geocache in Michigan. Love that Belgian candy sugar.

Can: Thanks, Jeff. Muddled, burnt sienna body with a fleeting, khaki foam on top. Aroma full of gummy esters, sticky toffee candy, red licorice, taffy, & mild back-end phenols. Taste has plenty of toffee & Belgian Candi sugar with a notable dark fruit & sweet date essence. Sugary, relatively sweet, but not too overdone given the style. Possibly more than a dubbel, but not quite at quad levels, either. Phenolic yeast & lightly spicy esters in the finish. Medium body, a touch sticky. Overall, not a bad little canned dubbel.

Can. Deep reddish-brown with a beige head. Cherries and candi sugar in the aroma. Bready and caramely with vanilla and a bit of alcohol burn.

On tap at Hopcat. Almost absolutely no aroma. Dark ruby in color with a thin head. Taste is malty mixed with fruit. Palate is medium bodied. Overall I’m glad I tried it but might not again. It’s not as bad as the Cleveland Browns.

On tap at the brewpub. Reddish amber pour with a white head. Sweet malt and dark fruit in the aroma and flavor. A quite nice Abbey Dubbel.

Tap sample. Poured clear reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted leaving good lacing. Good dark fruit and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Good fruit sweet flavor with a sweet finish that had a moderate duration. Soft sweet brew.

On tap at Elizabeth’s Chophouse in Marquette. Beautiful in the glass. Brilliant clarity and a lovely heaf that lasted forever. Spicy, fruity aroma. The taste however was overpowering in spiciness IMHO. Huge clove flavor and very estery, as it probably should be. Good mouthfeel with high carbonation. I just couldn’t finish it. May have been because of the All Day IPA that I had before but it was just nasty. Wouldn’t take a free one.
