3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a murky reddish dark brown color with a thin cap of off-white foam. The aroma is a mix of banana bread, burnt caramel, fig and Belgian yeast. Lots of dark fruit and caramelized sugar sweetness in the taste along with some clove, chocolate and cinnamon notes. Also a strong bready malt presence throughout. The body is slightly thick and creamy with soft carbonation while the finish is dry and malty with a subtle alcohol kick. Overall, a solid interpretation of the style that could use a little more active carbonation and complexity.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A rich, deep caramel/fudge nose. In the mouth it has a well-judged carbonation, it’s dry with a sticky fruit flavor, a bit more of that fudge. If there is a fault it’s definitely in the body, which is a touch thin. The beer is good but comes off a little shallow compared to it’s truly Belgian counterparts.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
