look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a large wine glass from a standard capped 12 oz. bottle. A clear brown pour with orange highlights offers a half inch of foam. Retention is a bit brief and I notice a lack yeast in the bottle, noting that bottle conditioning is unlikely here.

Nose is slightly sweet and pleasant, though a bit subtle as for depth of character. Touch of chocolate and some light notes of dried fruit, along with some background spice.

Flavor follows the same line but comes up a bit short overall. Spice notes are a bit too strong yet do balance an underwhelming flavor. More of a spiced brown ale than anything really. Offers a spritzy feel with some sweet caramel and bits of raisin and prune on the finish.

Overall an interesting brew though surely not yeast driven at the heart of things. A bit forced in the end with an improving aroma with warming at the expense of feel and finish.

Edit - 03/2013
New single with new label. Duped? Perhaps, perhaps not. 7.2% on label. Pour is clear and mediuim deep copper, light head with good stickiness. Nose is decent, malty though light, touch of yeast. Flavor is simple yet offers a lingering malt sweetness. Light, brown sugary and quite light in color and offering little nuance. More caramel than complex with a touch of hope on the finish. Not a bad beer, but not a good Dubbel. A check of thier website confirms that this is a current label and fresh product. App. minus 1.0, Smell minus .5 and Overall minus .5 The trend continues...

P- Wegmans in Mechanicsburg, PA

A- A reddish amber color that is clear. really no head and minimal lacing.

S- Vinegar malts and roasted nuts. I get some sugary hints as well maybe molasses. Smell is very inviting.

F- dark chocolate roasted malts dominate the mouth. molasses or some sort of dark candied sugar fruit. I cant put my tongue on it.

M- malty and creamy. It gets to be struggle as you get closer to the bottom. The malts tend to over dominate.

O- not a bad brew but not sure I would have it at a bar. It is worth a try but nothing more.
