3/5 rDev -20.6%
A: Poured a burgundy color with purple hightlightsn hues displaying a small dirty white cap, fair amount of bubbles and light lacing
S: The nose is heavy handed on Belgian candy sugar, light dash of spice and hints of dark fruits
T: Upfront I garner a big Belgian candy sugar and syrupy sweetness that seems to be the ringleader in the flavor. There were some light hints of spice, some light dark fruits and a touch, slight touch of chocolate. FInish is sweet, slicl and a little booze sting hits you
M: Medium bodied, syrupy, well carbonated
O: Overall, a little to sweet, not as creamy as I like and heavyhanded on the candy

Poured from a one quart growler into a Rochefort goblet. From notes. Reviewed 20 August 2011.
A: Wispy lace fades leaving only intricate patterns slowly unfurling on the surface. Glowing auburn in the light. Cloudy-clear and beautiful, though admittedly the glassware probably contributes.
S: Spicy Belgian yeast. Light fruit. Subdued but pleasant.
T: Meh. Fruit. Yeast. Mild carbonation. Disappointing, but serviceable. Points for effort, I suppose. Dry and slightly spicy on the endtaste, even if the main body is weak and thin.
O: The sometimes-spiciness is nice, but the fruit is a bit too sour and the flavours are a bit too subdued. Not recommended, but worth a try.

I am having a hard time believing I am the first to review this one, but its the only dubbel I see by this brewery and the menu cleary said Straight to Ale Belgian Dubble. So...it was a great interpretation from a small craft brewery on a dubbel. A nice dark copper with a thick white head that faded fast but left nice lace. The smell had faint belgian yeast on top of a caramel and honey toned backbone with some spicy elements. A bit of a watered down version on the taste for the style, but very drinkable. Unmistakable on the belgian yeast profiles with spicy and fruity characters coming through a caramel backbone with hints of cocoa and cinamon. Very good drink. Easy to down.

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.

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.
