When I opened it up and poured it into the glass I thought I was on to something special.....didn't happen. The initial smell was dubbel which I love. But just like the last beer I bought from these guys it tastes sour. I don't know if I have bought two bad beers but I think I'm done buying Schmaltz beers.

Very dissapointing.

I have professed to being a fan of these nice Jewish folks' creations. My Hitler youth parents (the most brain washed generation of Germans) would freak out over the name, but they would never understand the taste either. This is a cool, interesting brew.

As soon as you open this you know it is special. The color is uniquely deep yet light brown. There is not much head and the bubbles just look weird. The aroma is foreboding, like a nasty Belgian.

The Belgian dubbel is overpowering in the taste too, but not like the aroma foretold - much less so. The melding of these two flavors works well, and it is somewhat milder than a dubbel, yet it makes no apologies. The aftertaste is similarly sweet and rich, but very pleasant.

It is alarming that there is a 2014 version and I just bought (and drank) a 2013. Is that good? Bad? I will mention it to the vendor and see if they have a 2014 to try too.

22 ounce bottle into chalice, early 2013 bottling. Pours crystal clear deep ruby red color with a small fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, plum, fig, date, caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, light chocolate, clove, herbal, candi sugar, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of yeast ester, fruit, and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, date, caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, light chocolate, clove, herbal, candi sugar, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, date, caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, light chocolate, clove, herbal, candi sugar, light nuttiness and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of yeast ester, fruit, and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, lightly slick, and fairly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hybrid dubbel style. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of yeast ester, fruit, and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Bottle: Poured a burgundy color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of dry fruits with loads of residual sugars notes. Taste is a mix between molasses, dry fruits, some plums and raisins with load of caramel malt. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation and light warming alcohol. Interesting but too sweet for its own good.

He'Brew I just don't get them sometimes...2013 release contract brewed at Saratoga Springs, NY same as Mendocino, and some other contract breweries. This is a dubbel doppel hybrid of a dubbel and a doppelbock with fig and date concentrates added. Pours a deep ruby hue with light tan head fine even speckled lacing follows as the head dwindles. Aroma has a grainy character I get from most of the beers contracted at this brewery, however there's a generic fruitiness which has a bit of earthiness to it probably the fig and date concentrate. Sweet flavor as it warms more date/figs come out in the flavor, super sweet raisins, with bready/caramelized malts. Mouthfeel is a bit uneven a bit much carbonation and cloying sugars in between sips. Overall, this is just such a sweet beer it's hard to find balance.
