4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
We carry this at our bar and it is truly an awesome beer. It has a great caramel undertone that is smooth on the palate. Great to drink a couple of these in the afternoon.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap at brewery, the vanilla is very light on this one and adds as an excellent complement to the dubbel style.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz poured into a tulip glass. Dark brown with a small tan head. Nose is dark sweet fruits, raisins, vanilla...certainly a Belgian style. I’m generally not a huge fan of dubbel but this is nice. Very drinkable, very well done!

Served on draft at the brewery. Pours a dark hazy brown color with a medium creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of tart fruits, herbal hop finish. The taste is toffee malts, toastiness, plums, stone fruits, vanilla and a hoppy finish. Medium bodied. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep dark red with a nice off white head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, some candied sugars and caramel malts. Taste is a good bit of caramel maltiness with some plums and raisins popping through with a bit of the vanilla showing up every so often. Very mild bitterness, which takes a back seat to the sweetness in this one, and the carbonation runs rather soft. Has a nice oak character and is very well balanced. Pretty impressive offering from a brewery in my home state, that’s just getting its legs under them.
