Hard to believe that this hasn't been rated in a year. This was poured from a bottle that has aged about 1 year to date. It poured an amber/red with a slight bit of head and lots of lacing.

The smell was of brandy and slight hops with a sweet accent on the end.

The taste was pleasant and refined. As I am not familiar with dubbel's it seemed to be a nice yeasty beer with some fruitiness and herbs on the palate. The brandy was present, but not overwhelming and the alcohol was hidden well. The barrel taste wasn't very pronounced and I don't think they used a very high quality brandy barrel. Actually, there are very few brandy barrel variants that I have enjoyed, Deliverance being one of the few and Old Stock, but even brandy barrel angel share doesn't rise to the occasion.

Overall, it was a very interesting and actually enjoyable beer. Again, I am not familiar with Dubbel's, but the sweetness did not detract from the experience and I would and will drink this again. Especially since I have another bottle that I will age another year to see how the beer reacts to time in the bottle.

sour then sweet. Probably too much for a whole drink. Reminds me of tawny port

Shared a taster on-tap as part of four flights at the brewery; Sierra Nevada Brewing Co, Chico, USA. As part of a six-week West Coast beer tour. I rate to taste, not to style. See my blog for more details: carbeers.wordpress.com
