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.

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.

slowrunner77 (1945) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Dubbel in presentation, though on the lighter side for that style. It’s a solid if not spectacular double...very clean and tasty, just lacking in the wow factor that so many RR beers do not lack.

Defreni (2601) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Fad: Taster på brewpub. Ravfarvet klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er tydelig belgisk dubbel men med et lille snert af røg der gør øllen lanngt mere interessant og kompleks. Bakker sødmen virkelig godt op og ville helt klart være et hit i et lidt koldere klima.

Homer321 (1887) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Draft at brewery. Nose is sweet caramel like a candy bar. Dark red pour. Full of fruitiness and almost a cheery chocolate combination. Very fruity and well balanced.

Reynolds314 (2331) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 8, 2014
On tap at the source. Pretty ok dubbel. Aroma is sweet bready malts and mild nuttiness. Taste is kinda just carbonated bread. Sweetish and sticky a little grainy.

robertjm (773) - Albany, California, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Draft at RRBC . Draft opaque brown body. Light rosary malts in the flavor. Not particularly Belgiany to me. Utah, a nice beer none the less.

Bule (756) - California, USA - MAY 18, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown color without much head. Chocolate flavors and some mild hops. Nice flavors but a bit out of style for a Dubbel.
