TAR (2708) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Dark rust. Persistent custardlike froth dots the glass with some lace. Exquisite aromas of black tea, anise, toasted bread, red currants, anise, date sugar, ripe plum, banana bread, rock candy, spice cake, flowery hops, etc. Secondary notes of gum, concord grape and puttylike yeast. Somewhat spicily phenolic, as well. Expansive, softly prickly carbonation. Airy and fiercely spicy with immediate clove warmth and alcohol. Immensely luscious, multilayered malt soon takes foothold as it offers up a deep spice cookie and plummy brightness along with fresh baked banana bread and an earthy breadcrust contrast. Considerable residuals from the candy sugar, though there is plenty of underlying gummy, yeasty luster and fruity esters to thwart any cola-like character from encroaching. Otherwise the sugar purely dazzles with malt-enhancing sweetness. High attenuation and exceptionally clean malt makes for endless quaffability. Telltale lilac-drenched Styrians add to the appetizing nature as they assertively deliver a lip-smacking wallop. Dried fruit twang imparts the faintest bit of flabbiness, but stops shy of overexertion thanks to the ongoing firm maltiness. Closes dryly malty, firmly cookielike and phenolic with an equilibrium of caramelized raisin and sassy clove accompanied by a tardy flourish of bright floral hop burps. Aside from the minor flabbiness, this is a quality dubbel all-around.
