FROTHINGSLOSH (8069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Sampled from a 12.7 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with an enormous fluffy tan head that rose over the glass, lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was wood, almost bourbon, molasses, fig, dates and cherry. The flavor was bitterish, astringent and a bit medicinal with notes of dark fruits, cedar and tobacco. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting. bluejacket74 (1993) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2016
12.7 ounce bottle, no dating on it that I could find. Served in a chalice, the beer pours a clear dark brown color with a reddish tinge to it. There’s also about an inch light tan head that stuck around a little while. Decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like caramel, dark fruit (figs, prunes), chocolate and some earthiness. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s also some molasses and candied oranges noticeable. Nice and malty! Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s coating and smooth with a good amount of carbonation. I thought it was a good, enjoyable dubbel. Certainly worth picking up! $7 a bottle.

Bottle, thanks to Weihenweizen. Pours dark brown with reddish tint, very large spongy beige head, caramel aroma, high carbonation, caramel/sweet molasses taste with alcohol undertones, thin body, medium sweet caramel finish. A bit too sweet for me.

Bottle shared by JStax (thanks) at Cincinnati RateBeer tasting on September 26, 2015. Dark brown/amber hue, big refined taste of malt and fruit, fine fruit/malt taste with a woody element as well. Very good brew. alexsdad06 (10641) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2015
12.7 oz. bottle shared by Jstax. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, lightly toasted malt, some dark fruits, a hint of apple, a mild earthy bitterness, decent, but pretty basic.

Wet copper with a yellow-tan head.
Chocolate, caramel scent.
Flavour is fairly heavy chocolate/caramel malt....a bit of dark fruit....rich....
Nice dry ending.
Pretty good. phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2015
12.7 oz. bottle shared by JStax - thanks again, Jeremy! Interesting shape and size for a US-brewed beer, and with enamel instead of a label. Pours a clear burnt amber color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Toasted and caramel malts, fig, candi sugar, leaves, wood, and earth. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, earthy mouthfeel. Simple, straightforward take on a dubbel. Nothing special, but not bad by any means.

@ phaleslu’s cinci tasting. 12.7oz bottle, thanks to jstax for sharing. Up front, some toasty, nutty flavor, bit of dark fruit. Kind of hazy brown red color. Thin ring of khaki head, some bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Slightly more full. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Lighter to moderate bitter taste, very light sweet, more dry. Bit of chocolate and nuttiness in the finish. Pretty solid dubbel.
