Bottle to glass. Pours a brownish orange color with a light tan head. Aroma is slightly acidic, dark fruits, touch of vanilla. Flavor is quite acidic, and I don’t think it’s supposed to be. Not much on the way of belgian, cocoa, or vanilla. A bit past it’s prime I imagine.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the source. Tulip glass. Attractive amber color. Pleasant aroma with the chocolate and dark fruit making their presence felt. Taste emphasizes sweetness over bitterness. Chocolate elements add a unique dimension. Smooth and somewhat alcohol fueled. Ending sweetness lingers and gives a little of the funky Belgian quality. Chocolate aroma builds as the consumption progresses. Very solid.

Draft at the Bruery. Pours clear reddish copper with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like watery milk chocolate, toasted malt, and a hint of dried fruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like peanuts, chocolate, and toasted malt.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 32-oz. growler. The rather typical dubbel nose features cocoa powder, banana esters, light plums, yeasty raisin, brown sugar, pie dough, and cinnamon. Clear dark copper in color; no head. Malted chocolate is the main flavor, followed by dark plums, a touch of cloves, molasses, and faint vanilla, all capped by a minor herbal tone and the tiniest hint of mint. Somewhat watery body. Just OK.
