I have been drinking this beer for 3 years now. And I loved it then just as much as i do now. I live in north central alabama so this beer is semi-easy to find.

appearance: is brownish with a slight hint of red

smell: not sure i have a lousy nose

taste: im not gonna break it down like how many do. all i can say is its good and goes good with steak & cheesecake both

mouthfeel: easy to drink i enjoy the medium carbonation

overall: i like it (447 characters)

Poured into a pint glass

A: Mahogany colored with an off-white one-finger head that didn't linger. Decent lacing.

S: Belgian yeast pops up, along with dark fruits (raisins, dates, plums).

T: Follows nose with a nice chocolate finish as it warms. Malty and sweet. Goes down easy.

M: Medium with light to medium carbonation.

O: A very tasty dubbel. Will be drinking more of this one. The Belgian yeast really makes it pop. Try a pint. (437 characters)

A sessionable Belgian-style with its own character, but not overly sweet?

Sign me up!

Carbonation is lacking- fix that please, and I will make this beer canonical. (165 characters)

Originally rated in 2014 on tap and adjusted with a 12 oz can in March 2015.
Medium+ body.
Deep, dark, red-brown body covered by a head that has poor retention.

O: Good but lacks the depth, complexity and balance of a fine Belgian dubbel. (241 characters)

Draft from bar at concert venue.

A: Poured ruby red with 2 finger head that the bartender promptly poured off the side to fill the glass up all the way. Hard to jug lacing and head retention.

S: Belgian yeast, caramel, and plums.

T: Nice spiciness with some clove and all spice flavors. Lots of fruits - banana, plum, raisin. Sweet finish.

M: Medium body with fair carbonation. Tends a bit on the sweeter side but in a pleasant way.

O: A nice dubbel. Enjoyable to drink. Not the best in the group, but a solid choice especially for a local brew. (551 characters)

Thanks to Jim for this one!
Canned 2/2/15

Pours a reddish amber with a thin layer of tan foam, it ebbs away quickly after the first sip, minimal spotty lacing.

Aromas of yeast, light clove phenols, spice cake, dried currants.

Taste is similarly yeast forward with a light clove spice component, toasted wheat bread crusts, light sweetness at first but ends with a dry phenolic finish. Light pepper, thin bodied, carbonation seems to ebb quickly. Overall it's not bad and I enjoyed it. Thanks again Jim! (507 characters)
