3.75/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a cola color capped by an inch of foam; dotty lacing left behind

Smell: Tamarind and leather, with hints of prune

Taste: Tamarind and prune, up front, with leather, wood and cherry tones building, in the middle; dry, tannic finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: The beer avoids the cloying sweetness that imperils lower quality dubbels but it doesn't achieve the complexity of the best examples of the style

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one.

Pours a clear dark orange-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and dark fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors but nothing really stands out to me.

Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap

Purchased: Received in a trade

Pours as a dark, murky brown beer with red highlights. The small tan head fades fairly fast, leaving only a small amount of lacing. Smells of caramel malts, rich and sweet, with notes of raisin and fig, and brown bread. Very aromatic

The taste starts with molasses-like dark heavy sweetness; very malty and bready. Also has a type of sourdough flavor to it plus earthy hops, with little or no bitterness. I get a little Belgian yeast funkiness, but not a lot. The mouthfeel has little carbonation which seems low for the style, with a syrupy consistency. Finishes slightly sweet with toasted malts.

Overall a very good beer, but could use some tweaks to get up to the next level.

Thanks to Treyliff for the this trade brew!

Poured chilled in straight-edge ale glass

A: dark red color; thin head; good carbonation; lacing iffy
S: sweet, overpowering, smells of whorehound candy
T: very malty, sweet; not as boozy as a Euro strong, but has a similar flavor profile

Aggressive flavor, but not much dubbel. Enjoyable nonetheless.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #60 (Jan 2012):

LOOK: Hazed chesnut

SMELL: Mint, peppercorn, caramel, alcohol, muscat raisins, mulberries, brown bread

TASTE: Smooth, toasted biscuit, mild caramel, currants, faint lingonberry, yeast, estery alcohol, modest hopping, bread crust, dry toasty finish

Did we just wake up in Belgium again? Quite a surprise, and comparable to its abbey-brewed counterparts. Could be one of the first beers from West Virginia for us, and a great welcome to the state. Give us a simple plate of meat and cheese, and we'd be in beer heaven!

Thin tan head on a dark brown body with light brown highlights.

Fresh fruity aroma. Cherries, grapes.

More fruits in the taste. Grapes. Has a strange, slightly off putting aftertaste.

Lower end of carbonation for the style. Medium mouthfeel.

This west Virginia offering was alright. The aftertaste was kind of distracting. Glad to try it though, thanks egrace84 for the state tick!

Bridge Brew Works had a beer dinner a few nights ago down the street from me so I was lucky enough to take home one of these bottles.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown color that appears amber when held up to a light. A one finger head appeared that quickly dissipated without lacing.

Aroma: The aroma was a one trick pony. It was fairly strong, but a note of banana bread was basically the only scent present. I noticed a little bit of dark fruit, but it was hardly noticeable. I don't want to give the wrong impression though. That one banana bread note was damn good.

Mouthfeel: It was fairly thin and watery with a minuscule amount of carbonation. This is not what I expected at all from a dubbel.

Taste: The banana bread note from the aroma was present, but not nearly as overpowering. I also noticed more dark fruit and maltiness. The bottle stated that it had a touch of bittering hops, but I didn't really notice them much at all. It finished more sweet than bitter and it really opened up and as it warmed.

Overall: I loved this beer. The price was pretty steep because I bought it through a restaurant, but they threw in two logo pint glasses so I suppose I can live with it. If the price was right, I would definitely get this again.
