COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Couverteur is our spin on the classic Belgian-style dubbel. A beer rich in the monastic tradition of the Belgian countryside, our take on this robust brown ale has an addition of raw cacao nibs and fresh vanilla beans for a little extra fun. Couverteur is earthy with notes of dry cocoa, dark prunes and dried cherries, all nestled within the drawers of a fine piece of antique furniture.

Tap at the Bruery. Pours a deep black with no head. Aroma is slightly coffee and chocolate forward. Taste is way more Scotch barrel and pette. Loads of this. It really seemed barrel aged. Not in my favorite way.

baraciisch (2062) - California, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Brilliant reddish purple in color... Slightly vegetable aroma, Belgian malts, yeast, hint of cherry... Flavor is thin and boring, light Belgian malts, hint of cherry and vanilla, nothing on palate... Barely anything there ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dogbrick (8795) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Sample at the tap room. Pours a dark amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, dark fruit and yeast. Medium-bodied with flavors of bready malt, earthy yeast, cherry and vanilla. The finish is chocolate malt and fruity yeast. Decent overall.

ineedbeer (930) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
On tap at the Bruery. Aroma has a lit of dark fruit and yeast notes with some lighter phenolic character. Toasted bread, toffee and caramel are all very present. An odd, peanut butter like nuttiness. Faint chocolate and non existent vanilla. Pours a clear copper amber with a tan head that recedes quickly to the edges. Light lacing and medium legs. Flavor is medium sweet with moderate nuttiness including peanuts. Some dark fruit notes and light phenolics. Moderate toffee and caramel. Light chocolate but no vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium light carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a weird beer with a bit of an odd peanut character. Light chocolate but pretty much no vanilla. Good dark fruit notes and light phenolics.

Amber color, light head. Loads of toffee had caramel, some vanilla, doughy malts, toasted grain and maybe a hint of coffee hiding.

Barreras (1079) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours a deep brown color with a ripened cherry aroma. Taste is sweet and over ripened fruit in flavor. Distinct dark cherry, and prunes with every sip. Clean and crisp with a slight vanilla tinge in the taste. the alcohol content is well hidden making the beer easy drinking for the percentage of alcohol.

brokensail (11821) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
On tap @ The Bruery. Amber in color with a white head. Lots of cocoa and a little bit of cherry skin. Mild banana, some pepper, and a touch of orange peel. Fair amount of caramel and toffee. Lots of caramel sweetness to the flavor. Some banana, cocoa, and grenadine. Cherry skins and orange peel. Light spice. Okay.
