COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Before red curtains framed the Georgia Theatre stage, they hung alongside silver screen legends: Bogart’s trademark scar, Better Davis’ eyes. The Elite Theatre hummed with a reel-to-reel movie projector, and lines for the box office looped the block for the hottest ticket in town. By 1935, the building’s signature red-lettered marquee advertised double-feature nickelodeons and spaghetti westerns. Like any good sequel, the Georgia Theatre kept what was great about the Elite: star-studded evenings o’ entertainment. Double feature stars as the second in Terrapin’s Georgia Theatre Sessions, a Belgian-style Dubbel Ale as smooth as the silver screen.

(22oz bomber #2249/6163 thanks to bu11zeye) clear amber, lasting film of fine tan bubbles. Nose of candi sugar, cream, alcohol, raisins. Taste of raisin, cream, light spices, Belgian yeast and caramel. Apparently I liked this more than most.

coolpop (1367) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours a medium amber. This isn’t a dubbel in my book. Maybe more of a tripel, but really just a generic Belgian (strong) ale. Has the clove and bubble gum of a Belgian, but not the malty complexity of a dubbel. Bit of fruit. Palate is a bit thin. Overcarbonated; sort of prickly on the tongue. Nice, but not quite right.

Thorpe429 (5006) - , Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2011
Consumed at a recent DC area tasting. Served in a SAVOR snifter. Pours a moderate brown color with a very thin off-white head and just a smudge of lacing on the side of the glass. The nose is fairly bland with some dark fruits lingering in the background behind a bit of a plain malt presence. The flavor is quite plain and is hindered by the body, which is way too thin. Moderate malt presence with a bit of sweetness plus a bit of dark fruits in the background. The mouthfeel really killed this one and overall it just didn’t have much of anything going on, especially for a style where the best examples are incredibly complex.

transparent tan, white ring for a head. Caramel and sugar nose, bubblegum. More bubblegum, tea, light sugar in flavor. Overly sweet, harsh

Pours thick with an unfiltered look. Almost comparable to sweet tea with an off white foam head. Smells earthy and sweet with alcohol clearly coming through. Tastes sweet and slightly sour - not pleasing. Medium in body with slight lingering of sweetness. No apparent hop flavors. Did not really enjoy this beer even though I was very much looking forward to it.

Bottle. Pours clear tawny with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma and flavor are heavy malt (bread, cookie, toast), herbal hops, dates, and brown sugar. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation with a thin finish.

GT2 (7870) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 29, 2011
651mL courtesy of MrChopin. The pour is a clear, orange amber with a thin head. Aroma is sweet cherry syrup/grenadine, toffee, candies. Taste is very chalky, mineral heavy, and then sickly sweet. Slate, stoney, dry palate. Not happy about this one.
