Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle at the source. Pours a nice translucent brown amber with a creamy beige head of foam. The aroma has notes of cherries and dark fruits, maybe a light chocolate presence. The taste is sweet and mildly fruity. My favorite of the rockmill beers thus far. Very good.

Pours a mahogany color with a nice tan head, aroma is lots of belgian yeast and spice, candi sugar, some booze, and a little bit of dark fruits. Taste is spicy, good clove hints, candi sugar, a bit of caramel malt, some dark cherry and some raisin. Pretty good brew and from my hometown.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2012
750ml bottle from Dutch’s Bar & Bottle Shop in Cincinnati, OH. Batch 234/235, bottled on 3/13/2012. Pours an amber-ruby colored body with a finger-width, creamy, light tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is big dark fruit esters with a light tartness, dark caramel malts, some bread, apples, and a light spice. Flavor is definitely infected...ugh. Sour, estery dark fruits and apples with a bit of a dark caramel and toastiness. Finishes dry with a slight malt sweetness and hop spicing, but overtaken by the sourness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a lively carbonation. Overall, I was really looking forward to this, but the infection is pretty bad at this point. I can tell there is a decent malt backing and yeasty bitterness so I’m hoping this is just a bad bottle. Oh well.

superspak (2769) - Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2012
750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 2/25/2012. Pours very hazy reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some good spotty lacing on the glass, wit ha fair amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of cherry, raisin, pear, apple, molasses, pepper, clove, herbal, earth, dark candi sugar, toast, biscuit, and yeast spices. Very nice and well balanced aromas with good strength and complexity. Taste of big raisin, pear, apple, molasses, dark candi sugar, pepper, clove, herbal, earth, toast, and yeast spices. Lightly tart yeast esters on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, molasses, herbal, dark candi sugar, pepper, clove, earth, toast, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Great balance of flavors with good complexity, and no cloying sweetness. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick and slightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after this finish. Overall this is an excellent dubbel. Great flavor complexity and balance; and very smooth to sip on. Very well done and highly enjoyable.

Amber color with small off-white head. Sweet and malty with deep fruitiness and nice caramel notes. Very good- very expensive.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle @ home, courtesy of JStax. Thanks! JetsonFest II. Cloudy, brownish red appearance with a light brown head. Kind of a spicy, almond, cola, candy sugar, dark fruity aroma. Weird molasses, candy sugar, earthy, strange, sugary sweet flavor. This was a disappointment.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Sample at Hills Market during the Brewed Awakening Book Signing and Tasting on 02/05/2012. The beer is a slightly hazy dark brown color with a medium light beige head that dissipates slowly to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark malts, fruit and yeast. Medium body with a sweet fruity character and flavors of caramel malt, yeast and a bit of alcohol. The finish is malty with a toasty, fruity aftertaste. Good beer overall.
