3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bit light for a dubbel- a light amber mostly clear with a somewhat lasting off white head. Aroma is nutty, toasted malts, somewhat harsh phenolics and black pepper with some fruity esters in there. Lighter malt flavor than expected as the spicy phenolic yeast takes control adn gives a spicy almost hot- peppery burn- sugar and sweetness is subdued throughout. Finish is a bit too dry and prickly.

Absolutely my favorite new dubbel - Amber color with a sweet aroma of raisin, fruit, spice,and mild citrus. Flavor has a gentle dose of hops to match some sweet brown sugar and bread. Good dubbel without a crazy amount of sugar or Alcohol!
