Bomber sampled @ HopisHop B.U.M.B. 2016. 2013 Vintage. Dark brown, little bubbles. Nose is very oxidized, vinegar, sour cherry, acidic, varnish, this aint right even for a Wine BA beer. Taste is flat glue, varnish, acid, nail poolish, rubbish cherry & unripe fruit. This clearly ainít right. Varnish & glue body. Surprised at this being currently a top 50 Abbey Dubbel on RB, maybe a bad bottle?

This kind of borders on a Flemish brown and itís very balanced. Neither too sweet nor tart, but quite drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was more complex than I anticipated. Bready malt, Belgian spice, slight sour aroma. Oaky brown color with a decent head. This bottle had some age so some character may have changed a little. Medium to above-average weight with smoothness. Oak and slightly sour flavors but it didnít taste like infection. This was different than your standard Dubbel. Malty with little to no hops presence. Not a bad offering.
