Got this beer in the mail as a 750 mil bottle. Poured into a signature dogfish snifter. Poured very dark with tan head. The aroma was earthy malts and hazelnut. The taste was absolutley out of this world. This is the best dubbel I have had. I want more now! Do yourself a favor and get your hands on this ASAP. highwayempire (21) - North East, Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2016
This beer is in my top 5. It’s amazing. It’s refreshing, tasteful, and everything a beer should hope to be. It’s impossible to find but worth the quest. wnewberr (100) - Huntersville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Chocolate covered cherry aroma and taste. Disappointed in the head retention and would like a little more, but not much, CO2 in this beer. Definitely get notes of Raisins as well. DoublEE (781) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Pours a deep cherry brown with garnet highlights. A two finger light brown head that slowly dissipates into a solid persistent lace leaving a nice trail down the glass.
A ton going on here! Dark chocolate, roasted malts, toasted brown sugar, caramel , cherry and earthy notes are there as well. The smell is fantastic!
Taste follows the nose fairly closely. Moderate fruity esters. Starts with plenty of tart cherry and roasted chocolate, with notes of coffee, dates, bananas, and hints of bourbon. The roasted malt is quite pleasant, giving this a toasty, creamy flavor. A pleasant sweetness from either honey or malts. Finishes with the slightest bit of tang. Very complex. I’m not familiar with many of the exotic ingredients so it is difficult to comment on their roles in the flavor profile. All I know is the result ends up being balanced and delicious.
Full bodied, medium carbonation, lush. Alcohol is well hidden behind sweetness. Very drinkable considering the style.
Wow! I am a big fan of Belgians and I’m pretty unforgiving of bad interpretations of the style. URKontinent is pushing the envelope with the use of its exotic ingredients but ends up with a bull’s-eye for the style. srobi003 (59) - odenton, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 From a 750 ml bottle. This beer pours a very dark brown/ black with off-white 2 finger head that dissipates quickly. In getting a huge coffee and chocolate note. Also getting a slight bread note from the yeast. Taste starts out semi-sweet and finishes a little dry. Overall an excellent and complex beer and an excellent take on a Belgian Dubbel .

750s from Craft and Capone’s. Pours turbid dark brownish black with ruby edges through direct light and 2-fingers of creamy, well-retained off-white head. Nose is great; a big nutty, cacaoey, with earthy esters, black cherry, hops, honey. Tastes rich, complex, with notes of earthy malt, big hazelnut, cacao, coffee, black cherry, and a complex finish. This one finishes even more complex than it starts, and the ingredients meld together amazingly well. So delicious it is a challenge not to drink it down in 3 or 4 gulps.
