3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Bottle number 2249 of 6168.
The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is toffee, cherries, yeast, sugar and caramel. The flavor is Belgian yeast, toffee, caramel, brown sugar and some dark fruit notes. I get cherries as well as some dates in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A pretty good American-made dubbel.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(22oz bottle) Pours a clear orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of raisins, mustiness, and apple. Light flavor of earth, raisins, and light roast with a watery mouthfeel and a dry finish. It was almost like they added some extract into a bottle of carbonated water and threw a beer label on it. Disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pretty cloudy brown that doesn’t clear up much as it warms. This has some of those dates and nuts of dubbels, but it comes out a little thin. Not bad though.
