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.

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 donít think itís supposed to be. Not much on the way of belgian, cocoa, or vanilla. A bit past itís prime I imagine.

commonmac (724) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2015
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.

[2/18/15] Draught at The Bruery in Placentia. Nice clear deep amber. Aroma of chocolate, cookies and some dark fruits. Sweetish flavor with chocolate, some cookies, fruitiness, a bit of spiciness and an alcoholic note. Medium-bodied.

DesertDevil (670) - Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2015
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.
