Draft at the brewery. Pours a deep brown with hints of ruby, beighe white head. Very complex nose - Toffee, dried fruits and a hint of pine. Taste is much the same with a medium bitter grapefruit that persists through the finish. Very good.

From notes: Poured a deep, opaque nutty brown, with a 1-finger tan head. Nice amount of lacing. Sweet candied fruit aroma, with some nuttiness and a spice note. Full body with a mild, syrupy thickness, Deep, nutty malt flavor with spice notes and some candy sweetness. Very nice.

Deep dark brown coloured body with a nice three centimetre tall tan head and a dark brown, ruby and violet tint when held up to a light. Aroma of malt, alcohol, pit fruits, raisins, earth, yeast and some bananas - very nice and a good blend of a dubbel and trip, with the smell favouring dubbel. Medium-bodied; Strong roasty malt flavours with a lot of pit fruits, some earth and medicinal notes and hints of light spices overlayed with sugars throughout. Aftertaste shows a strong yeast note, some alcohol, bananas again and a good pit fruit sweetness. Overall, a well-crafted beer that blends styles, but shows a nice complexity and flavour profile - great to try! I just wish this wasn’t in such a large format bottle. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 06-July-2013 for US$7.91 sampled at home in Washington on 06-September-2013.

Usually Belgian beers are not my favorite, but to my surprise this one from Yards is very tasty. Aromas of caramel and chocolate with an appearance of a medium to dark amber. Would love to try more from Yards!

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.
