Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Vancer on 05-11-2009

Great lengths were taken to ensure its authentic characteristics. German and Belgian malts, noble hops and a unique yeast strain are all necessary to produce this unique ale. It is aged for one month; beer that tends to please red wine drinkers and is definitely not for the novice beer drinker.

Reddish brown in color, with a modest white head. Slight haze. Restrained smell...a bit of yeast and malt. The taste is a bit drier than expected...acidic and hop forward for the style. Still, a drinkable and enjoyable brew.

A bit of lingering toffee and caramel. Big fan of this dubbel.

For the price, a great dubbel. The finish is odd, almost too bitter, but the IBU is only 23, so perhaps the flavor I'm getting is something else.
