Wulfstan's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 18/20
Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - OCT 29, 2009
This is excellent and complex. It’s very dark ruby red with a medium off-white head that shrinks steadily to a foamy ring and wispy top with a little lace. The aroma is subdued but good. It’ssweet and fruity, dried figs, ripe plums, stewed pears, and toasty grain. The taste is excellent, restrained yet still fairly assertive, well-rounded and balanced with some complexity. Raisiny and a little spicey, it has stewed, caramelised pears, hint of dried fig, fruity grain, toastiness, hint of pepper, and a little light red wine. Sweetness is consistent and balanced with light bitterness and spicey warmth. Aftertaste is caramelised toast and fresh plums. All is well-integrated and well-rounded, smooth and drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown in colour with a creamy white head. Very smooth taste, with a little fizz. Really tasty.

SinH4 (1395) - Garching, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2015
Sampler at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. Brown color with beige ring. Spicy, nutty, earthy aroma. Taste is similar. Solid complexity and intensity. Very soft mouthfeel. Again: Well-brewed, but the classic Dubbel is just not exactly my style.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - FEB 1, 2015
[ Tap ][ 5oz ][ O’Briens SD ][ $2 ][ Shooter Tumbler ][ 1.31.15 ]
>> Clear cola red pour with wispy white foam. Sarsaparilla nose, earthy root, dried beet or something? Biting, dry taste with lemon, paper, light acid, grass. Fairly light bodied for a Dubbel, quite drinkable. Just not my style and doesn’t seem to have the body to match the style either. With that said, no off flavors and the light acid makes it easy to enjoy.

Ron (3171) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2014
On tap at Russian River. Copper color with lots of carbonation and a fizzy burnt-vanilla head. Aroma is light fruits with prominent grape and biscuit yeast tones. Simple, straightforward flavor of caramel malts with a touch of raisin and Belgian yeast on the end. Dry palate and the ABV was not noticeable.

PhillyCraft (4528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Glass at brewpub. Maroon brown pour. Notes are malt, peanuts, toffee and grain. Lighter to medium in body. Nice finish but this style isn’t my favorite.

Caramel candy nose, very busy ale. Gorgeous brown appearance. Amazing nuts on the tongue; like enjoying a side of peanuts and cashews. Toasted nut finish.
