hmmm not so sure about this from the get go.

appearance. I expect it dark. Like black dark but its not. dark cooper in color. Large two finger head that looks really nice. The head disappeared quickly.
smell- Lots of hops. Yep it smells like the hop room at a nice brewery.
taste- hops and bitterness.
mouthfeel- very active little to much activity for me.
overall- I guess I don't match others on this....It was ok but nothing more then that. honestly I didn't finish it....

Poured from a bottle with a date of 02 Sep 12.

A-Very heady-pillowy tan that sticks to pint glass while drinking. A crystal clear reddish-brown amber color.

S-Bubblegum/banana ester belgian yeast is the dominant aroma. Sweet malts come out stronger as the beer warms.

T-Dark sweet malts with yeasty taste. A bitter long finish.

M-Body is thin for dubbel-could use a stronger malt backbone, alcohol end bite is a little too obvious.


O-A great dubbel for the price. I'm glad New Belgium makes this beer as this style is a go to beer during the non-summer months. Not as good as some other more expensive dubbels out there due to lesser body/mouthfeel and stronger alcohol finish but a really nice beer to drink in place of many alternatives. Another solid beer from New Belgium-what a great brewery.
