look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Pipeworks Brewing Company branded snifter/short stemmed tulip

Pours a hazy mahogany capped by a one finger light beige head. Average retention; hints of lacing here and there. Brown sugar, candi sugar, dark fruit, sugar plums, and dried dates on the nose. Opens with caramel and candi sugar initially. Bold date, plum, hints of molasses and brown sugar join in. Finishes semi-dry with continued dates, candi sugar, and warming alcohol. Syrupy body, low carbonation. Nothing groundbreaking as far as the style goes, however a very solid brew which is nothing short of enjoyable.

(Served in a chalice)
Batch 166
A- This beer pours a slightly dense brown body with a thin film of off-white head that is supported by a gentle carbonation.

S- The nice dark sugar notes blend with date syrup, circus peanuts and banana/plantain esters. There is a soft peppery phenol in the finish, but this is a very good sniffing beer.

T- The nice flavor of dates and classic dubble yeast character has some hints of nougat and pear esters with a gentle touch of sweetness in the finish. There is a slight cidery note that comes through as it warms but it adds a nice twist. There is a nice alcohol note with a mineral tang in the aftertaste.

M- The medium-full mouthfeel has a creamy fizz and a warming alcohol heat to it.

O- This is a nice dubble style beer with good support by raw sugar and dates and it seems like it adds layers to each sip as it opens up.

3.68/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - Dirty or muddy brown color, nearly opaque with thick yeast cloud particulates in the beer. Very little head when poured into the glass, quickly falling into the beer and forming a ring of dark tan bubbles around the glass.

S - Dates, with allspice and belgian yeast phenols dominate the nose.

T - There's a lot of fruit forward tastes; dates of course, but plum follows. The medium tastes are of spice and phenols again. It finishes with a sweet dark sugar on the back of the tongue.

M - Spicy, peppery medium body with a hint of oily resin from the hops.

O - I liked it. This is a very good dubbel, paired very well with some ham and potato perogies.
