Hoorah, something new from NJ...

Not a fancy bottle...but don't let that fool you...this is a nice beer. Pours with a deep, rich coppery-brown color. A nice head with some decent lacing. Mild carbonation seen. I served this in a goblet style glass.

A sweet, malty scent. Interesting...

A rich and pleasant taste...strong flavored, but goes down quite smooth. The maltiness remains throughout. Hints of dried fruits...raisins noted.

I was quite pleased. As the first offering from a new brewing company, this is different, unique and rather risky. Nice job!

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a deep amber bordering on brownish-red color with a one finger of just off white colored head. The head fades very fast leaving a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a somewhat grainy smell with notes of raisin mixed within. Along with these smells are big aromas spice smells of cardamom and clove. A light bit of a yeast and bubblegum smell and some roasted malt smells are there as well producing sweet but oddly grainy and lightly roasted aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and sweet taste with a lightly toasted malt and caramel flavor. A raisin and cheery sweetness comes to the tongue quickly after the initial taste with it bringing some yeast flavors. After the yeast comes to the tongue, so too does a moderately spiced flavor profile with clove, cardamom, and allspice all hitting the tongue. The spices and yeast remain relatively light and with a bit of more dark fruit flavors and a very light alcohol taste coming to the tongue at the end, one is left with a lightly spiced, bready, dark fruit flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather decent for the brew highlighting the yeast, sweet, and darker fruit flavors of the brew without allowing any one flavor them to overwhelm the palate and all the while keeping it rather easy drinking.

Overall – A rather easy drinking dubbel overall. All in all it is pretty good, but is noting too outrageously good.

Served in a Chimay chalice.

I can't remember who sent me this beer, but thanks, mystery BA!

It just doesn't have the same ring to it that the visually-impaired rodent trio does... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear amber-garnet topped by a half-finger of off-cream foam. The nose comprises rich caramel, dark fruits, light molasses, and a bit of Belgian candi sugar. The taste brings in more of the same, with some extra candi sugar, a couple black cherries, and a twinge of green apple way in the back. The body is a straight medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a slick feel. Overall, a decent dubbel at best, one that just doesn't fully sit right with me. Maybe it's a bit sweet, maybe it's the fruit on the tongue, I'm not fully sure. All I know is that I won't be demanding another any time soon.

Poured from a bottle into a Chimay glass. Pours a dark amber, with little head. This is the first dubbel that I've had, so I'm not sure if it's consistent with the style. Smells of dark fruit and malt. The taste is the same. It's a very drinkable.
