3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bomber pours a dark brown color with a generous light tan head that retains quite well and leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is dark fruits and caramel. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a mild hop presence. Medium bodied with decent carbonation leaving a slight tickle on the tongue. As far as dubbels go this one is quite nice and is easy to drink.

22 ounce bottle
Thanks to the West Coast trader that sent this my way. A solid dubbel, it had some high points and some low points. I’d recommend checking it out if you are in the area but do not go out of your way.
Aroma / Appearance - The chestnut brown base floats gracefully with an ivory head the color of stained teeth. Light legs crawl down the sides like the rinse water at a carwash. Raspberries, blackberries, and cotton candy play with the iced tea base to provide a sweet experience. It almost smells like walking through a candy shop.
Flavor / Palate - Actively carbonated, the mouthfeel sparkles on the tongue. Malty iced tea used to rinse down bites of cotton candy transition to a nice tang. A mellow sweet finish is icing on a homemade cake. This may not be remarkable but it wasn’t bad for a brewery I’ve never heard of before.

Maroon-brown. Thick caramel head. Figgy nose, deep and rich. The body is of weathered and thin malting, with sparse figgyness breaking through.

22 oz. from Chuck’s @ $7.99. Belgian bananas and a little bit of maple syrup. Nevermind, make that a lot of maple syrup. This smells great. Body is a little thin but it stands on its own.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep dark amber, moderate to large frothy sandy head, fairly nice lacing.   Has a light spicy nose, faint floral fragrance.   Not really getting that dark pitted fruit or rich breadiness.   Seems lighter, more floral and fragrant with a slight tropical flair.   Soft whole wheat breadiness up front, slightly sweet, touch of nuts and peanut brittle.   Not the sweet peanut brittle mind you.   Somewhat of an odd duck.   Clean finish, just different.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not a malty example thats for sure.   A bit of a stale honey finish, like that Bit O Honey candybar from years past.   Meh...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly sweet and fruity nose. Toast, nutty, some sweet weird banana. Pours dark brown with a huge tan head. The flavor is sweet but light, fruity yeast notes on top of toast, some dark fruit, a little brown sugar. Leaning towards sweet, body is a little thin, not flawed. Not unpleasant.
