3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Bocktown. Has a light smoky malt aroma, with caramel and sugary notes, molasses and Twizzlers. Dark amber brown, pretty clear, with thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Fairly nice Belgian dubbel character, sweet with molasses and Twizzlers. Rich and malty with a bit of hop bitterness at the finish. Sweet after, but not too cloying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Bocktown event 4/21/12. A solid dubbel done well. Sweet and sour scent with a nice bready dough backbone. The dark brown pour had a reddish tint in the right light. The taste was a typical bready dough molasses of a dubbel, but with an impressive potency. Nothing groundbreaking here, but a skillfully crafted beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Melanoidin amber body with decent head. Light, breezy, musky clovy smells wafy off the glass. The body itself is defined by a juicy, fruity malt character with a prominent candi malt presence, but a more restrained yeast character that betrays itself with sprinkles of clove.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at McGregor’s in a goblet. Orange highlights in brown, slight haze. Nose is yeasty and fruity. Sour palate, and sugary at times. Mouthfeel is silky and thick. Very very good. Like the esters, like the dubbel-factor, a good copy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Muddy brown, thin head. Yeasty candy sugar nose, banana bread, chunky thick belgian yeast though. Flavors concentrate around the bananaish yeast notes...a little acidic around the edges...mouthfeel a bit phlemy...not a fan of the cumbersome yeast strain here...or the phlemy mouth mucous it creates.
