3.55/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: medium-dark. Cola-like. Crystal clear. Thin foamy head.
S: Belgian phenolics. Banana. Plum. Aromas are present but not overbearing.
T: banana. Clove. Cola. Cross between California ale yeast and an abbey ale yeast. NW Belgian? Definitely a gateway Belgian because of the toned down yeast characteristics. Interesting.
M: high carbonation. Medium body.
O: good beer. I like it, but the toned down yeast brings the rating back a little.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a thin head on a black body.
The aroma is dark fruit, mostly plum and blackberry.
The taste is also plum with some mild pine bitterness.
The texture is softer with moderate carbonation.
It's an enjoyable drink, though it's missing the complexity to take it to the next level.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 500mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: rich, dark amber hue which shines bright red when held up to the light. There's no haze in this brew. Head is two fingers of frothy tan foam. Really, I think it's quite attractive.

Smell: lightly malty with a bit of a bready character, plus a fair amount of phenolic funk. Reminds me more of a BSDA than a dubbel, but still quite nice.

Taste: phenolic right up front with quite a bit of band-aid character. A little caramelly toward the end with a nice finish, but overall there's too much band-aid and bubblegum in this one for me.

Mouthfeel: the texture on this is outstanding; medium body with a giant carbonation yields a big, smooth creaminess.

Overall: I just wish everything about this beer was as good as the mouthfeel. It's not a terrible beer at all, but be prepared for the bubblegum that builds steadily on the palate.

Bottled 2/4/14.

Pours a clear reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, spice, banana, and slight dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with burnt toast, caramel, and banana flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a burnt toast quality that somewhat overpowers any other characteristics, especially in the taste.

500ml bottle bought from "Lifesource" in Salem OR $4.99 Pours a murky darker brown with a huge ,attractive creamy tan head. Caramel,plums,banana,clove and touch of Halls mentholyptus in the aroma. Taste is much richer chocolate cake soaked in rum and dark fruits,some clove and banana in the back..nice stuff. Nice mouth feel, thick yet smooth and with a long after taste..slight alcohol but its fine. Very nice dubbel here.

3.8/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Tasty dark stuff with a distinct Belgian bitter yeasty edge. Interesting aroma of straw and dark caramel. A touch of licorice in the nose. Appearance is quite attractive with the fine-grained white foam on the dark coppery amber brew. Pleasantly sudsy in the mouth.

Quite dry but with a large malty presence. The dry quality makes it seems less like the typical Belgian abbey brew. Bold but austere. Some hints of licorice and figs. The finish is quite bitter and a little metallic. It tastes like more hops than the 35 IBUs claimed on the label, but the yeastiness is quite prominent.

An interesting and different kind of Dubbel. After some sipping it gets so dry and bitter I am more convinced that a little sweet fruit would help out the drinkability. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Beverage Warehouse near Marina Del Rey.
