Bottle courtesy of Kirk, thank you sir! Very dark maroon color, thick light brown head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of forest berries, chocolate and spice. Taste is berries, licorice, burnt coffee grounds, spice. Licorice finish. Interesting and certainly unique. madmitch76 (25383) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2013

Very dark brown beer, reddish. Good pale tan head. Nose of nuts and spicy unsweet bubblegum. Smooth, semi dry palate. Mild fine carbonation. Smooth dry malt, soft. A minty coolness. Mild and subtle red berry fruits. Spicy bubblegum and banana ester. Subtle nuts. A fairly dry finish. Unusual complex beer, tasty.
Tap at the Royal Tavern, Philly - 26/05/12.
Deep brown colour with a thin tan head.
Roasted aroma, molasses, burnt sugar, Belgian yeast.
Taste follows nose but with more dark fruits, quite sweet, not as roasty tasting and a little pepper and spice.
Medium bodied and carbonation. Not a bad dubbel, could have been better balanced, can’t quite put my finger on it!?! mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a very deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma of spices upfront which are very foreign to me, dark fruits, and candied sugar. Flavour of various complimentary spices, quite rich and complex, a vague hint of dark fruit and more spices. Very spicy, but in a cohesive way without any harsh edges. Doesn’t come across as a dubbel, but an experimental spiced beer.

Bottle @ ZZT X shared by MrHangover. Lightly unclear red brown color with a dark red glare coming through. Smell and taste sweetish, lightly malts, raisins, mint. Decent body and carbonation. Hmm not a lot to tell about this one. It’s ok I’d say. bhensonb (15624) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Capped 750 from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fred’s the beer guy. Pours dark brown with a foamy/creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma is floral and chocolate. Near full bodied. Flavor is chocolate and cherry. Clearly. Weird. Some dark malt, but for me this is chocolate and cherry. Lots of other things going on, but c&c dominates. It has dark malt, and the finish is less than dry, but it is quite delicious. DHB may have gone so complex that the flavors are indecipherable. But the taste is good. djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with a medium creamy beige head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is cocoa nibs, figs, and licorice. Medium mouthfeel with a strong coffee and chocolate with dark fruits and nice smooth finish. Hides alcohol well, a very good specialty grain from Dogfish Head.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown color with an average to large frothy light brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt & nuts and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet toasted nutty flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Interesting good brew.
