Before red curtains framed the Georgia Theatre stage, they hung alongside silver screen legends: Bogarts trademark scar, Better Davis eyes. The Elite Theatre hummed with a reel-to-reel movie projector, and lines for the box office looped the block for the hottest ticket in town. By 1935, the buildings signature red-lettered marquee advertised double-feature nickelodeons and spaghetti westerns. Like any good sequel, the Georgia Theatre kept what was great about the Elite: star-studded evenings o entertainment. Double feature stars as the second in Terrapins Georgia Theatre Sessions, a Belgian-style Dubbel Ale as smooth as the silver screen.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bomber, #507/6168. Poured a lovely shade of fiery orange with a dense beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted nutty notes, golden raisins, vanilla, and peppercorn spicage, with molasses sugars if you dig deep.. mightily malty, but there was a decent yeasty complement. The flavor was sweet as expected, with molasses, honey, and raisins leading this time (molasses came back strong on the finish too).. peppery and fruity notes from the yeast laced throughout.. dried out on the finish, leaving molasses, dark fruit, and spicy yeast. Medium-bodied with creamy, filling carbonation upfront that mysteriously disappeared toward the back (it felt almost flat on the finish).. OK balance, with a bit too much emphasis on the sweet stuff.. solid drinker overall.

Big thanks to Blake for sharing this bottle. Dark brown color with a medium size fluffy head. Aroma was a bit different, hints of raisins and grapes (though those two are pretty much one in the same). Flavor however just seemed a bit un-balanced. However the drinking experience was a good one.

Sampled at Slutfest 3. Hazy orange pour with ring of khaki head. Very sweet and honey and vanilla and and light hoppiness. Not my fave of the series. just feels phoned in.

Pours almost reddish mahogany color. Yeasty aroma, clove, bubblegum. Light brown sugar notes, smooth malty body, little hop appearance as it should per style. A little muddy for my liking. Not a huge Belgian style fan, but this just isnt doing for me.

bottle #3/6168 at daks 1/31/11. pale amber... a little hazy and not very dubbel-like. it smells and tastes like bubblegum, alcohol, florals and rice... actually, its all sake. it even has a starchy rice texture behind the thin alcoholic body. this is horrific... unless it is sake. then, it is beer flavored sake and still terrible.
