3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle share at Hampton Inn pre-DLD party. Pour is ruby brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is on the sweeter side with notes of dark fruit, spices, vanilla extract, and oak. Flavor and mouthfeel are both heavier than I expected with notes of burnt wood, vanilla, dark fruit, and chocolate. Dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled Nov. 1, 2012 - Vanilla Tree Dubbel has a balanced and mostly unobtrusive application of wood. The contribution by vanilla is also modest and these donít overpower the beer. There is a rich and creamy character which is quite appealing. Unfortunately there is also a bit of bitterness and astringency that seems to come from the oak that creates a slight twinge that eventually becomes more pronounced.
