3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Browns a brown orange with thin white head, little lacing. Nose is mostly caramel, Belgian yeast, a little vegetal. Tastes of more caramel, candi sugar, a little raisin. Some off notes. I would describe it as an Americanized dubbel. Not bad, but not the best from the brewery and certainly not for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Toronado. A minimal sized off-white head sirs ooh to of an unclear reddish brown body. The aroma has an initial touch of raisins, with some caramel maltyness and generic fruityness blending in. The flavor is pretty much the same, with some bitterness balancing the sweetness. Full body, very soft on the palate. Dried fruits and sweetness in the finish. Nice indeed, although a bit less complex than the best Belgians. 130804
