3.4/5  rDev -5.3%

750ml corked and caged. It pours clear copper with a frothy light tan head that seems to be trying to talk somehow. Noisy stuff. The smell is grapes, leather, and a biscuitiness. Is that a word? The taste is bready/biscuitty, with something resonant of peanuts and a sharp dry maltiness to it and a slightly astringent finish. The mouthfeel is very carbonated and a tad thin. Overall, an interesting one. I'm not sure its going into the regular rotation but I wouldn't turn one down if it showed up naked and drunk.

On tap at the Draught House during the RateBeer Winter Gathering.

The beer pours a hazy brownish color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of toffee and caramel malt, with a little bit of Belgian yeast and some light fruit notes. The flavor is more of the same. The candy sugar makes the beer fairly sweet, as does a heavy dose of toffee and caramel. I get some cherry and orange notes, but their are fairly faint. There is also some Belgian yeast and some spicy notes in the flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured into a snifter and got a dark golden/amber beer that was mildly murky and filled with plenty of carbonation. Its topped off with a nice thick tan head that quickly thins into a thin smooth layer of bubbles. Very thick lacing makes the ale look more inviting. Mild malt and hops aromas come through mixed in with plenty of sugar, apple and berry smells. Over all, the aroma is pleasant and sweet. Its medium bodied and really envelopes your mouth, there is a good bitterness to it and some spices are present up front. The malts come out well, I cannot taste any hops and there is a slight buttery flavor in its aftertaste. Over not a bad dubbel

Slightly hazy amber pour with an off-white one-finger head and a lot of carbonation. Grainy aroma with hints of dark fruit. Taste is sugary sweet with hints of bread, raisin, and nut in the medium body. Also has some light spice and yeast flavors in the finish.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Thanks to twiggamortis420 for this bottle!

Damn needy Tunnel Man... Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy sunrise amber topped by over a finger of cream foam. The nose comprises lightly-buttery biscuit and very light Belgian yeast. Gotta say, this is one of the blandest-smelling dubbels in recent memory (nevermind the gaps therein...). The taste holds notes of mild orange zest, cinnamon, light maple syrup, light toffee, and light clove. There we go, better. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a decent dubbel, though one that falls somewhat flat for me. It's barely there according to my nose, and sorta plain when my tongue gets involved. Still, it's far from bad.

A: Pours a dark hazelnut brown color. A two finger white head forms and recedes to a ring that sticks throughout. Lots of sticky lace is left behind.
S: Toasted malts, toffee sweetness, some plums as well. Simple, but enjoyable.
T: Follows the nose. Toasted malts with a nice sweetness. Toffee, figs, plums.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Creamy and smooth. East to drink. A nice bottle to sip on.

Overall, very enjoyable if a bit simple. Very much worth a try, and am looking forward to the Triple and anything else I can find from these guys.
