look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

1 pint, 9.3fl oz bottle (Bottled on: 2013).

A: Murky amber / tea-like color; fizzy, thin, tapioca head; no lace.

S: Nose-bitingly sweet malt aroma; caramel; fig.

T: Dates; figs; kind of grapey - perhaps that’s the apple brandy effect; lightly vinous; malts / combination of figs, raisins, brandy barrel pushes things towards a cotton candy level of sweetness.

M: Medium body; high carbonation; very sweet.

O: A dessert beer if there ever was one - virtually no bitterness... just layers of sweetness.

Bottled in 2013. Poured from a cork and cage into a snifter, the beer is a deep, ruby-tinted burgundy coloring with a thin halo of white head. Aromas of booze, wood, rich fruit notes of fig and raisin, red wine characteristics, and a tangy candied backbone. Nose is very sweet and powerful. Flavors are very rich and fruity forward, with notes of apple, fig, raisin, date, and plum, with a ribbon of booze in the backbone, and subtle roasted toffee notes. Very smooth and balanced, despite leaning towards the sweet end of the spectrum. The beer is slick, smooth, and robust in mouth, and there is a boozy and fruit sweet aftertaste. The finish is slick and clean, with a subtle hint of rich fruit linger. Really flavorful, yet extremely drinkable. Tasty brew.

My contribution to the Proof NYE bottle share. Pours an amber brown with medium light tan head and medium tan collar. Aroma is leathery, some dark raisin and a faint fig, caramel and wet earth. Nice medium body and low carbonation. Taste is very fig forward. Good raisin as well. I really like the fig-leather combination. The aftertaste is a bit off, astringent.

4.06/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a modest head; a few shards of lacing are left behind

Smell: Caramel, figs and raisins, with a bit of oak underneath

Taste: Caramel, up front, with the dried fruit building in the middle; the apple brandy becomes assertive, after the swallow, with wood and booze lingering into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice blend of flavors but lacks a little depth that I typically associate with the dubbel style; very enjoyable, however

@ Raleigh Times

Murky chestnut colored body with a slight ring of a head. Aromas of ripe fruity esters, dry booziness, and some sticky caramel. Sweet apple and pear brandy flavors, fig, raisin, and general dark fruitiness. Quite the nice creamy vanilla character going on here. Some booze, but very surprisingly (for me) not too sweet. Creamy, slick mouthfeel with some tingly carbonation and a drying sensation in the finish. The nose was the least appealing aspect with its rough barrel notes, but the flavor was delicious.

Serving type: on-tap
