On tap at AA. Served in what will pass as a goblet. Color is a deep garnet brown. Head is minimal, not much more tha a surface coating. No lacing. Aroma is of molasses, raisins, and brown sugar. Flavor is similar: mild sweetness, raisins, brown sugar, caramel malts, and some very minimal Belgian yeast funk. Light medium in body with appropriate carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brewery. This particular batch has been aged since 2010.
Pours a dark brown/honey/burnt sugar color. Very little head but nice lacing. Alcohol and sweet nutty aroma. Very crisp flavour...nutty, toffee, alcohol. Not strong and little aftertaste. This is a very drinkable dubbel. I'd buy again.

This beer pours a dark amber color with small head that disapated quickly. The smell was weak but had a nutty odor. The taste is strong full flavor spicey and seems to havea nut flavor. Easy to drink culd have more carbonation. Overall a nice dubbel enjoaybale not the best though.

Enjoyed on tap at Ale Asylum in Madison, WI. Pours a dark reddish-brown with an off-white head that last. Aroma is of fruity yeast esters. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and smooth. This one was more sweet and sugary than I'd like to see. There was also some alcohol warmth in the finish. Good but not great.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

on tap at the brewpub poured into a chalice. pours a fiery orange/garnet color with garnet highlights and a half finger of tan head that has good retention and leaves moderate lacings.

aroma is of rich, dark fruit and caramel malts, along with sweet crystal malts. the aroma ends up quite sweet and very rich in the nose.

taste follows the nose with fruit notes of raisen and plum along with a subtle note of belgian yeast and a touch of caramelly grain on the back end. caramelized sugars throughout with a sweet profile and a warming aura from the 8.5% APV, which is well hidden.

mouthfeel is full bodied and sweet on the palate with a warming finish of residual slickness. very hearty on the palate. lightly sharp on the back end with a bit of warming.

drinkability is good. a very rich and hearty dubbell that brings the flavor and ends up smooth on the palate and after the fact. a very drinkable brew for 8.5%, but not even close to a session.

*Reviewed from notes*
Poured into a snifter style glass on tap this brew was a dark amber color with a slight white head that settled nicely round the top of the glass. There was a definite wheat smell, doughy and strong notes of banana and orange. This brew had a slight sweet taste and a creamy feel in the mouth with a slight amount of alcohol in the aftertaste. The body was medium with moderate carbonation. This was a solid brew, but as with other AA brews the price doesn't necessarily match the quality. All in all a good brew to try, but not worth the growler price.

Served in a chalice, dark amber in color with impressive lacing, not much head to speak of. The bartender said that the barrel was about to kick, so I'm sure I got the last of it. This might have had something to do with the lack of head.

Mild hop bite, biscuity with fruitcake and dates, honey. Doughey bread with rum cake. A little alcohol on the finish.

Mouthfeel is full and creamy, very nice.

Excellent, if a little thin and light for a dubbel.
