COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Dubbel exhibits many of the complexities that have made this style of beer highly sought after over the centuries. It is dark red in color, hinging on mahogany, with loads of sweet, caramel esters that fill the nose. Hops are necessary only for the purpose of creating balance, but in no way do they compete with the rainbow of aromas. The aromas are a byproduct of fermentation, and our proprietary Belgian yeast strain produces similarities to many of the Belgian classic Dubbels.

HonkeyBra (3433) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2013
On Draft at the brewery with TheDude. Brown pour with almost no semblance of a head. Tons of chemicals, alcohol, and weird yeast in the aroma. Smells strongly of bad fruit. Flavor is sweet, cloyingly so, with odd yeast notes. Thin bodied, watery texture, tons of alcohol in the finish. There were so many wrongs going on in this beer.

3fourths (8103) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Draft. Murky brown with a quickly-dying off-white head. Yeast, metal and paint aroma on top of higher alcohols / fusels and rotting dark fruit (plum, cherries, apples). Potato starch texture with a strongly sweet and acidity yeasty off-brand cola flavor. Alcoholic and dirty and wort-like with lingering bacteria, yeast sludge and rotting apples and pear fruitiness. Thin, watery body. Gag-inducing.

Steve_0 (2757) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2013
On tap at West Flanders. Pour is hazy brown with a big cream head and good lacing. Bready, dark fruits, yeasty, somewhat doughy, licorice, and toffee in the aroma. Taste is dark fruits, red licorice, somewhat spicy, bready, yeasty, and doughy with a touch of clove on the backend. Full mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Ok.

Brouwerij (930) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2013
At West Flanders. Pours a dark brown with a finger of tan head. On the darker side of dubbels. Settles in minutes with minimal lacing. Aroma is caramel, malty, sweet, hints of dark fruits. Malty up front, mild roast, carsmel, toffee, flavor lets up a bit in the finish, fruity, rum fruit, hint of chocolate, mild alcohol. Moderate carbonation, medium-light body, and mildly crisp texture. A sweet, mildly roasted dubbel, tasty.

adnielsen (9285) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Tap @ West Flanders Boulder. Pours a copper/orangish appearance with basically no head. Funky, goopy sugary, slight caramel, light banana aroma. Clumsy, chewy sugary, orange fruity, slightly toasty malty flavor with some booze. My least favorite at this place.
