On tap at Alivias in Durham. Very subtle barrel character. Dark fruits and a touch of oak/vanilla in the nose. Some caramel and spicy notes come through as well. Spicy with a very light toasted grain and bubble gum note in the flavor. Medium to full bodied with a fruity finish and soft carbonation.

Dark copper pour, small white head. Aroma of bourbon, some belgian ales and yeast. Flavor is very interesting, has a hint of coriander and strong belgian like the beglian golden but is tart and fruity like Bell’s Cherry Stout, complex flavors, nice beer.

Much like the regular Abbey Dubbel but this one has a better palate. Also the flavor is a little more pronounced with the chocolate malt.. Overall good beer.

OldGrowth (2613) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Tap at the Village draft house. roasty spiced aroma, mellowed, I think, by the bourbon. got fruitier as it warmed, getting some coconut. Dark orangy brown color, no head, spotty lace. , medium sweetness, lightly bitter on the flavor. medium body, lite creamy mouthfeel, sweet dry finish. Nice brew, had to warm up to get the aromas & flavors going, but that was more the draft houses serving temp than the beers problem.

Not bad overall. Smooth and without anything really distinguishing. Bready aroma. Caramel and toast malt. Wouldn’t be my favorite beer, but it was worth having every once in a while..

Draft at the brewery, then fresh from the growler when I got home. Copper color with a bit of sediment and a big white head. Robust nose of caramel, alcohol. and bourbon. The beer clearly grabs a decent amount of the bourbon flavors from the barrel, more so than any wood notes. The mouthfeel is sharply carbonated with a touch of burn and leaves a nice sweetness in the mouth. It’s a complex and really enjoyable beer.

On tap at the new joint, Revolution, downtown Derm. Having enjoyed the base beer, I can say this one is even better. Same handsome pour, a deep garnet, but with slightly less evident head and carbonation. The same soft autumnal fruits blend with malts in the nose, but there’s less yeast and more bourbon. The barrel is quite modest, a good thing in my boat, since it doesn’t overwhelm the beer and contributes to the complexity and depth of the flavors. Probably this brewery’s best so far.

Tap at Watts Grocery. This is super solid. Tastes like a dubbel, but not overly sugary like some can get... sweetness is nice and malty, slightly fruity with a subtle amount of bourbon... nice woody notes but not too much sourness or charcoal. Given the style, not a beer I would expect to be delicate, but it is a rather subtle brew. Very enjoyable.

On cask and on tap at the Durham Black Friday Beer Festival. I preferred the cask version with slightly softer carbonation. A simple nutty dubbel with notes of chocolate and dates complimented nicely by just a hint of bourbon. Great job of not overwhelming a beer with too much bourbon and oak.
