Deep brown/red, like an unfiltered apple cider. Sweet, yeasty, fruity nose...not too overpowering. Thick tan head that disappears with lacing after a few minutes. Spices, fruit, slight bittering hops dominate the taste. Nutmeg, weak cinnamon, banana, cloves. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with mild carbonation.

17/II/16 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - BB: III/10/15 or 16 (smudged ink) (2016-163) Thanks to Tim DB for picking me up this bottle!

Clear purple brown beer, creamy beige irregular head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, some banana, hint of mocha. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: some alcohol, banana, lots of dried fruits, bit earthy, dark chocolate, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: lots of dried fruits, raisins, banana, caramel, soft sweetness, more chocolate.

Bottle pour into tulip pint glass. Aroma is strong dark fruit/apple smell with astringent alcohol like acetone or witch hazel. Appearance is deep red, almost like a sangria, with huge chunks of dark yeast floating about (forgot to withhold last bit in the bottle--d’oh!), no sparkle, quickly-fading 1/2 finger-width head to ring of off-white. No lacing. Taste is dark fruit moderate sweetness. Palate is medium bodied with sticky, thick texture, lively carbonation (stings a little) and dry finish. Overall, this certainly gets the fruity end of the taste scale but lack of complexity and deficits in aroma, appearance and palate drag it down.

Interesting beer - parts of this are outstanding - armoa, color, and some of the taste... more of a winter warmer than dubbel...great aroma of dark fruits, toffee, brown sugar. dirty hazy dark brown sludgy pour. taste better as it warms and some great flavors - doesn’t all come together perfectly but worth a couple of bottles.

Definitely like a dubbel. Caramel, dried raisins/figs, sour yeast along with very mild hops bitterness. Fairly warming. Would be better with food as opposed to just on its own, as I tried it.

Copper pour from the bottle. Taste is grain, dough, mild citrus, malt and booze. Warm finish. Nice.

Bottle to pint glass. Brown in color with a tan head and little lacing. Aroma is toffee, caramel, and malts. Flavor is sour malts, toffee, and more rich caramel. Average mouthfeel and somewhat sticky. Ok beer.

Perfect vintage label! Great color and a nice flavor. A decent winter ale..smooth and no distinct flavor overpowers...nice blend.
