Poured from bottle into tulip shaped glass
Appearance – Pours a rusty red-brown color. Upon pouring there is a huge thick foamy tan head that forms. It persists for some time giving way to some very nice lacing.
Smell- Sweet fruit aromas abound. Apple and tropical fruits of banana and mango are the most potent. There is a bit of caramel and breadiness mixed in with the fruits as well. All in all, the aroma is quite potent and quite pleasant.
Taste – It starts out with the fruit depicted in the nose. The apple and banana are the thickest and heartiest, but darker fruit and even a little bit of caramel are present and become more prevalent toward the middle of the taste. The taste experience finishes with a bit of a roasty and bready maltiness with a lingering bit of fruit and caramel sweetness.
Mouthfeel – Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. The body is a little bit thin for the abv and style and the carbonation a bit too high.
Overall – Other than the mouthfeel, the beer really has very nice characteristics. It has a nice sweeter fruit profile mixed with a nice malty backbone. A fairly good sweeter dubbel.

A- deep clear amber with a thin, rocky tan head. Great head retention and well defined rings of lacing. Small, slow rising carbonation.
S- beautiful yeast character. Earthy, spicy, funky. Bready malt, caramel, and a touch of molasses. Not much fruit, but there is a hint of raisin if you look for it.
T- molasses, caramel, raisin, Cinnamon, clove, toasted bread, funky yeast. Surprisingly complex for an American dubbel.
M- medium bodied, creamy, fine carbonation.
O- very surprised, in a good way.
