Not typically a fan of a Belgian dubbel, but this is an exception to the rule. Smooth and tasty, beautiful amount of carbonation with just the right balance. Big fan of Taxman, grab some when you see it...

On tap into a tulip glass

A - Beer pours a clear dark brown color with reddish mahogany tints throughout. The head is ultra thin (so thin I can't tell the color) and disappears completely almost immediately upon being set on the table. Moderate carbonation clings to the edges of the glass with bubbles rising at a moderate pace towards the surface. 3.75/5

S - Deep dark maltiness and musty hay are prevalent aromas throughout with bits of earthy hoppiness, woodiness, and a light spiciness (coriander and pepper). Musty hay and bubble gum come out very strongly. 3.75/5

T - Ultra dark stone fruit comes out immediately along with a yeasty breadiness and bubble gum. Dark roasted malt, leathery, and a woodiness make up the middle of the profile which transitions to both herbal and earthy hops on the back end. Somewhat musty, like the aroma. Bitterness does not linger upon swallowing. 4/5

M - A bit chewy throughout but also with a lightness due to the hop dryness. Disappears from the palate upon swallowing. Carbonation burn up front but very smooth for the rest of the mouthfeel. Medium bodied in nature. 4.25/5

O - Not the typical Dubbel that I am used to but this is a very good offering. Interesting combination of flavors that complement the fruitiness of the typical Dubbel style ale. Complex but simple at the same time makes for a very approachable beer. 4/5

A - Murky and dark brown, with a persistent white head that fades to thin cap. Lacing all over the place, with tiny circular bubbles. Nice looking beer here.

S - Sugar and booze. Bubble gum hits like a punch in the face.

T - Steeped tea, sweet floral notes, a line of biscuit and bread, and a slightly bitter close. Very nice.

M - A bit cloying, and without enough bitterness or acidity to keep things from building up.

O - I really enjoyed this take on a Dubbel. A well crafted beer. I prefer a touch more bready malt, and the close needs a bit more bite to prevent the sugar from building, but these are common issues for the Dubbels I've had and honestly, this hits its marks generally.
