This is a Belgian-style double brewed with a traditional coriander, and an uncommon addition of kaffir lime and lemongrass. An amber body, rich, flavorful, absolutely delicious, and entirely too drinkable for a beer that’s 8.5% ABV.

Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours brown with a thin off-white head. Aromas are banana, dark sugar, raisins. Taste brings more banana sweetness. Couldn’t finish the other ingredients. Easy drinking for sure though.

I find it interesting that this beer isn’t at 99%. It’s quite delightful and a perfect example of a well done yet unique dubbel. Belgian style dubbels are a hard category to compete in, with fine Trappist ales as the standard, but this brew holds its own for true dubbel connoisseurs. It’s nicely sweet with floral overtones and a crisp, dry, noble hop finish. Tastes of caramel, raisin, rose and a hint of biscuit. The pour is also nothing to complain about, with a delicate head and deep red hue which is distinctly impenetrable. Something you look for in a good dubbel. The palate is light yet full with a light buttery texture. I will certainly buy this again.

Tall Can. Deep caramel brown color, strong fruity and tart aroma. Medium body. Taste is off. Not good.

The_Osprey (9670) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
Cold can. Pours a dirty dark red / brown, slightly sparkling, small white head doesn’t last. Aroma of sour caramel, cherry cola, clay. Body is medium, slightly foamy, lowish carbonation. Taste - very sweet caramel (oversweet), slight coffee overtones, spearmint, metallic, soft cherry finish. Alright.

DuffMan (10751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Can. Hazy dark orange. Aroma is sweetly herbal on a barley candy base. Caramel malts support notes of ginger, perfumey citrus (not truly kaffir though), and breakfast tea. No hint of the ABV, but a bit too sweet to be sessionable, at least for me anyway.

Thisis12ptfont (1230) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Aroma of smoked malts, amber malts, herbs, molasses, citrus and I can smell subtle lime. Amber appearance with decent lace. Nicely blended flavors amber malts, slight metallic tank notes, hop resin, subtle lime notes, cinnamon and herbs. Overall, this is a nice beer with herb and molasses overtones and subtle lime. Don’t get the lemongrass or coriander notes as much though. A- rating.

Singularity (6369) - Blattniksele, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 On tap @BD bar, sthlm. Dark amber ruby with no head. Aroma of spice, malt, port, perfume and candy. Taste is sweet and malt, caramel, port, salt, spice, herbs and alcohol.

Bottle share at DLD 2013. Pour is deep amber with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is very much belgian with notes of key lime pie, raspberry, banana, golden raisins, and coriander. Flavor is similar but with more of a spice/vegetable kick at the end. Strange, but good.

dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Can. Aroma of done sugar candy, citrus. Taste is like a caramel bomb, done lemongrass. This actually could be pretty interesting but not really working.

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Can from the LCBO via jerc - thanks, Jer! Dark red-copper body with a thin tan head. Aroma is odd - getting more of a barley wine vibe than anything "Belgian-style", with barley candy sweetness, resiny hops, and perhaps a hint of citrus. Flavour starts quite sweet with dark sugary malt, followed by a distinct hit of lime, and a warm, boozy finish that has a bit too much residual sweetness for my taste. Not completely awful, but a bit of a mess, really.
