Our own version of a traditional Belgian Dubbel, brewed as close to the traditional style as we are legally allowed by Iowa Administrative Code, Section 123.3 (Contact the folks in the State House and tell 'em to Lift The Limit!). Dubbel Play is a dark, reddish-brown ale, served in a snifter to allow its thick, creamy head to accentuate the wonderful spicey aromas to come through. The flavor of this beer is rich an complex, fruity and a bit herby with a dry finish. 19 IBU

Had on tap at the brewpub. Clearly their best beer (that I had at the time), it nails the flavor of the sugars, but itís too weak for a really high score.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy brownish amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of raisins, apple, figs, banana, and caramel. Flavor of dark fruits, apple, brown sugar, and caramel malt with a somewhat dry finish.

12/10/07--on tap at the brew pub. Hazy orange red with a 1/2 finger off-white head, low retention--served too damn cold in a brandy snifter. Aroma of Belgian yeast, raisins, figs, caramel, and some candi sugar--pretty sweet. Flavor was Belgian yeast, dark fruits again, and spicy alcohol. Lots of alcohol burn despite itís claims of 6.2%. It isnít as sweet as the aroma, but itís still pretty sweet. Light tingly carbonation with a full body. This doesnít seem fruity enough for a dubbel, but would be more apt to fit in the Belgian strong or Belgian brown ale.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Draft at third base. Poured murky brown with just a little head. Nose dominated by bananas and fruit. Taste was about the same, but lacking any sort of dominating flavor. Pretty thick on the palate, strong finish. This beer is not 6%, Iíd place a rather large bet on that.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Served in a tulip glass. Poured a cloudy brown color. Head was thin and off white. Aroma was of clove, subdued banana, white wine, and light apple cider. Slightly sweet on the tongue and medium bodied. Apple cider was the most prominent flavor with clove, a dash of brown sugar, and alcohol rounding things out. I could hardly believe this was only 6%. Seemed stronger. Overall this was a very good beer.
