3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Don’t get deceived by the sweet malty smell; this is a very serious beer.
Pillowy head with very good lacing, and pleasant smell. Great color; very dark amber. Smell of malts and liquorice. Very bitter taste, lots of hops going on. Medium body, with a bit of a nasty bitter aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Extremely interesting hybrid beer. Bartender called it a dubbel (as it is listed here) and bottle identifies itself as a ’brown ale’ which is perhaps a better description of the taste just not the process of making it. Hops are very present at the nose, making for an extremely interesting nose on a dubbel. Aroma is a lighter brown than most dubbels as well. Taste is a bit flat and lacks the normal fig and spice of a dubbel. This works well and is a fun beer to drink.
