PorterPounder (8271) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Pours a deep dark chestnut brown with a thick khaki colored head that sticks around a while. Aroma has some fruity plum accents, a hint of pipe tobacco. Flavor is full-bodied with some light plum accents, a hint of light chocolate, some brown sugar, a touch of pipe tobacco. Mouthfeel is a tad thin for the style and flavor. Still a solid brew thing and hits the spot on the first really cold night of the year.

Tap at the brewery with commonshawn, rosskyle, and samadouche. 12 oz tulip glass. Beautiful deep amber/brown with a heavily unfiltered vibe. Looks like in a bottle it would sport plenty of sediment. Aroma of dark cherries, plums, and more malty sweetness. Taste is a complex and pretty close rendition to other dubbels from Belgium. Great dark fruit blending with light caramel and toffee notes. Relatively easy to drink especially given the alcohol content. Nice sweet, fruit syrup like finish. Very tasty beer.

It pours a cloudy light brown with reddish hues. There is a light brown head. It has aromas of cherries, malt, and a bit of sour on the nose. The taste features cherries with plums mix into with a sweet and sour malt bill. It has a moderate feel to it with a sour and slightly sweet finish.

Bomber bottle. This was an okay experience but I’m left with a mouth feel full of perfume and flowers. Could have skipped it..
