A small fizzy head on this dark brew. I really couldn’t get in this one. It seemed like quite a mess. It had some classic dubbel traits but none of them were I concert with each other. They were very disorganized. An unpleasant earthy note throughout. Not something I’ll be having again.

Draught at Beer Wars. Roasty malt, dark cherry, dried fruit and toffee, light sour edge, dry yeast finish. Interesting take on a Dubbel but a bit heavy and unbalanced, tough to down a full pint.

I really liked this and was impressed, as overall it is very close to the best in the style, however, something seems to be missing, I can’t quite put my finger on it. Color and appearance are right on, aroma too, although a tad sweet. taste is also plums / prune juice, again sweet. Short finish, just sweetness. It might be the yeast that could be a bigger part of this beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass. Pours semi cloudy brown with amber head and lace. Aroma of rich malts, caramel candy, bubblegum. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of dark malts, minerals, slight fruit rind, citrus. Overall rather light in body for a dubbel with some inappropriate flavors for the style, and lacking in overall good flavors regardless of style. Somewhat like a session dark lager.

Bottle (22oz): Dark reddish. Small head. There was a fruity sweetness that surprised me (just hope it was not the sip of a cider I had had before). Not very familiar with this type of beer, but enjoyed it. Should try again.
