Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Portsmouth tulip glass.
Pours a very pretty deep rich brown with red highlights. It's got some haze to it and really looks classic to the style. Really dark body yields a light brown fluffy 2finer head that is thick and rich. Really looks like a dubbel to me. Nice lacing. The aroma is very nice also with sweet malts, toffee, caramel and hazelnuts up front. A fruity ester takes over on the back end and lightens this beer up nicely. The taste is near perfect. Iconic to the style, this has the body of a Belgian dubbel and the flavors of a really nice American brown ale. Rich roasted malts, a touch of coffee and toasted almonds and hazlenuts on the palate. Has a real buttery finish that coats the palate nicely. Mouthfeel is very full bodied, a real food friendly beer. Nice on a cool night and will definitely be making another appearance in my fridge. Really love the the alcohol is restrained on this one. Would love to finish this bomber and maybe another by myself. Highly drinkable and worth seeking out.

Served in an imperial nonic pint glass
A - This beer pours dark brown with ruby highlights when held to the light. A semi aggressive pours yields about three inches of tan head.
S - I smell some cocoa, along with earthy, nutty aromas.
T - The taste has those earthy, nutty flavors that make English browns great. With hints of cocoa it is a nice representation of the flavors of this style.
M - Medium towards full.
O - I like the comforting earthy qualities of this beer. While I find it a good example of the style, I still think I would pick a Sam Smith's Nut Brown over this. But, this will definitely slake my thirst of the style.
