A very unusual take on the Belgian dubbel left an impression. If not for the awesome pumpkin seasonal this would have been my choice for a full pint. It shows an understanding of where to paint outside the lines and where to stick with the normal routine.
Aroma / Appearance - The mostly opaque reddish brown body is rich for a dubbel. An ivory ring of head rests like packing foam on top. Cotton candy, candied apples, toffees, nuts, and spicy cider are well balanced together.
Flavor / Palate - Chewy bubble gum sweetens the palate and fills the stomach. Cotton candy and sourdough bread slide to a candied finish. Apples hang in the back of the throat with a moderate bitter tang. Full bodied and dense this has a little something for everyone.
Growler. Earthy/woody rye malt aroma. Clear chestnut with a minimal head. Belgian yeast, toasty woody, spicy rye flavor. Medium body. Travlr (24930) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Draft at the source. Clear brownish amber color. Aroma of burnt caramel and tropical fruit. Taste is lightly spiced toast, nutella. Nice. ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Aroma of clover, dough, banana, rye and herbs. Appearance is brown with bone head. Flavor matches the nose; the rye really cuts through in the finish. Palate is bubbly. Pretty tasty take on a Dubbel. shrubber85 (11411) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Growler. Apple, wood smoke and rye malt aroma. Dark amber with large head. Sweet orange/apple, rye, and mildly bitter orange peel flavor. Moderate alcohol in the finish.

Draught at brewery. Listed on board as a Belgian Rye Dubbel. Kind of a light dubbel with caramel and slight sweetness. Wasn’t sure if I cared much for it. Maybe up the malt profile a bit to the dubbel status. Also, wrong "its" in the description for this beer.
