2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Pours deep brown with a cream head that’s slow to show up. Weak, sweet vanilla aroma. Taste is cloyingly vanilla without any oak notes. Disappointment after a nice string of amazing finds from Westbrook.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is brownish orange with a small, light tan head. The aroma offers malt, apples, light spice, subtle yeast. Smells like adult apple juice. The flavor is quite a bit different, with a lot of brown sugar in addition to apple cider. Alcohol is present throughout, but ot overpowering. Overall, a decent beer but not something I would seek out again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Murky brown ale with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. The bouquet is a successful marriage of Belgiany dark fruits and spices, white oak and vanilla beans. Medium to full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor provides gobs of sticky caramel blended with mocha, dates, figs and oak. Well-balanced. Finishes moderately bitter and roasty with a nice kiss of vanilla. Bottle courtesy of burg326!

Saled at anesbls tasting. Dark red brown and opaque. A small tan head is little more than a ring. Big toasty malts in the nose. Chocolate, yeast, malts, fruit all combine. Just a bit of wood. Not bad at all.

27-AUG-2012, bottle @Papsø.
Dark amber with tan head.
Hoppy and malty. Vannilla and wood. High carbonation, a little sweet.
Almost an American Strong Ale. The dubbel is well hidden under the wood and hops.
