On tap at Aftershock Brewing Company in Temecula, CA.
Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, banana, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but I think it smells better than it tastes.
Serving type: on-tap

Minimal head when poured into the St. Bernardus globe, and virtually no suds after 30 seconds. Just a tickle of carbonation in the mouth. Dark coppery amber, a pretty color at least. Sweet and flat, but with a slight spicy flavor. I don't taste much in the way of Belgian yeastiness, it seems to be all candy with a slight dryness at the very end. Pleasant roasted malt flavor with a slightly woody finish. Pleasing warm spicy aromas with an interesting scent of cedar in the nose.
From the 22 oz bottle bought at Barons Marketplace on Point Loma Blvd where four of these Aftershock beers had suddenly appeared.
Note: I'm going with the unexpected and possibly illiterate "Vission" displayed clearly on the label (see photo), even though their website in one place calls this "Dubbel Vision," with one "S" as you'd expect, but with two S's in another. With ABV it's 9.3 on the label but the website says 8.8. Who was it that said "Consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds"?
