First had: on tap at Teresa's, Wayne, PA

Served in a DLS cervoise, a murky darker brown color with a solid tan head that receded to a thick layer and left soapy lacing on the glass. Dark sugars in the nose, caramel and molasses, earthy Belgian yeast. More of the same in the taste, burnt caramel, molasses, earthy yeast, with notes of chocolate, candied banana off in the distance. Smooth, slick mouthfeel, medium body, soft carbonation. Quite good. I could see myself getting this more than once for sure.

Serving type: on-tap

11.2oz bottle brewed for Philly Beer Week 2013. Thanks for sending this one, John. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass today, 1/11/2014.

Pours a dark brown, mahogany body with a clearly overcarbonated head that makes pouring even this 11.2oz bottle take a while. Lots of lacing, lots of retention.

Smells fairly malty- sweet dates and figs, dark fruits, and brown sugar that's about it.

Tastes like bleah. Nothing special- sweet darker malts making me think of brown sugar and dark fruits with a dry sugary finish.

Thinner bodied, a bit watery and very disappointing for a dubbel. Drinkable, but that's all I can say about it. Carbonation settles down after a while. Aftertaste is a sweet sugariness that leaves the mouth dry.

Not that good of a dubbel. There are far better examples of the style out there than this.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy dark brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell has some spices, a bit of fruit. Taste is, well, kind of hoppy for the style. Hops up front, some pine, spices, a bit bitter, some malt presence. Different, but good. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, while not quite what I'd expect from a dubbel, is a pretty good beer.

-Collabration between Weyerbacher & De la Senne for philly beer week 2013.

A: Dirty orange on the pour yields a stable, dense, foam head of about a finger and a half. Turbid coloring has a vibrant rush of micro-effervesce while the lacing is thick with a full band offering.

S: The aroma was of fresh wet spruce, spearamint, cola, cinnamon, and sweet nutmeg. Toasty sweet caramel, oranges with a hint of candy cane. Nice complexity, sweet, with a nutmeg/cinnmaon dusting coming upon some warming.

T: Spicy, full of powdery nutmeg and cinnamon, toasted cola with a spicy bite upon first impressions. Dark cyrstal malt sweetness, munich toastedness with some anise, dry herbs, earthy tree bark, and a peppery-celery spicing as well some dry pine. Im guessing grains of paradise here? Finishes with a dry alcohol fade off the tongue.

M: Mouthful was snappy with carbonation, thick and creamy malt lush, lots of texture, spitzy bite of dry spicy alcohol fade.

O: Overall so many layers of complexity here both aromatically and flavor wise is followed up by a great mouthful garnishes this very good regards. Interesting label of a naked boy with a cowboy hat standing on penns tower pissing down on philly. As a dubbel, a big hoppy interpretation yet retains so many strong and good qualities of the old world style. Im not one for usually overating beer, but in this case, per style, feel this is a bit undermarked, very good at the least. Ive had some boring dubbels but this one was always interesting from start to finish and big in nature with a vast complexity.

3.71/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a cloudy reddish/pink color with a massive head that takes forever to die down

S: Belgian yeast, fruitiness, light spices, some bubblegum, and a hint of alcohol

T: Starts off with a bit of fruitiness and light spices. A big, looming bitterness lies behind that. Get some yeastiness and alcohol in there as well. Finishes with more of the lingering bitterness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Really surprised by the amount of bitterness in there. Seeing as how this was brewed in collaboration with Weyerbacher for Philly Beer Week 2013, it shouldn't have been that much of a surprise but it's still a dubbel. Quite easy to drink aside from that. If you want to try a hoppy dubbel, this one will suit you just fine
