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.

Clloudy, chocolate brown appearance with a faint hop aroma. Not as complex in the 1 liter bottle as I remember the cask conditioned version. Still an nice double/triple.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy brown body with an ok head. The aroma has a bit of apples in it and a slight tartness. There's a nice touch of caramel and it's a little sweet. It's tasty, but I can't say I was overly impressed with it.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 L bottle (extra appearance point). Sour bouquet (had to hold my nose on popping the cap). Pours dark with good head and lace. Sourness bites on first sip, but gets better with each sip. Cherry and chocolate linger after the tartness passes. Alcohol is buried under the tartness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark brown with a lacing tan head. Quiet nice looking. The aroma has caramel, roast malt and some wood. The flavor is similar but a bit too sweet for me. The booze is nowhere to be found, rich and warming.
