3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty decent - bottle from Wegs in State College. Pretty much a standard dubbel in taste and characteristics, dark, sweet, malty, a bit of yeasty action in the nose and palate gives it an edge. But somehow they stuck a bit more alcohol in there, totally undetectable, a bit more than a dubbel. Well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a capped 750 into. a Duvel tulip. Pours a dark brown with some serious off white head. Earthy, dirty aroma with sweet plums,dates and yeast. Mouthfeel is moderate and slightly slick with a good dose of carbonation. Taste is pretty Belgian with dark fruit, spices, molasses, water, minerals and moss. But it's too light. The flavor is muted for what I'd expect from this type of beer. Ok but I wouldn't really buy again if given the opportunity.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black/dark brown, nice lacing. Strong malty and fruity aroma. Flavor is follows sweet. Really like the nice fruity flavors. Nice mouth fill, with low carbonation. Didn’t really notice the trippel spiciness, but the large dubble malt body is there. Alcohol is apparent as well but blends in nicely. Aftertaste is pleasant as smooth, Apparently only comes out every couple years. Best one ive tried from yards.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Translucent dark brown with a reddish hue. Large creamy tan head. Yeasty toasted malt aroma with notes of brown sugar, cocoa and dark fruits. Flavor upfront is roasted malt, cocoa, banana and dark caramel. Chewy dark malt flavor comes through with more dark fruit and spicy hops. Finish is bittersweet and dry. Although it has hints of Belgian style, it is more an American dark ale. Very good none the less.
