3.35/5 rDev -5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck bottle with no freshness date, Flying Fish logo on the label but nothing about the beer.
Appearance: Reddish amber with a light chill haze, better than decent off white lace which sticks on the glass like a champ.
Smell: Clean on the nose with quick aromas of roasted malt, light medicinal phenols and a burnt raisin fruitiness. Light caramel and bready aroma also.
Taste: Real smooth mouth feel lead with a creamy and subduing crispness. Medium body from the ample dose of malt. Big chocolaty malt flavour that has levels of roasted and toasted malt and flows into a light medicinal flavour. Roasted malt bullies the delicate palate around too much though does not get into any kind of burnt flavours. Bitterness of the hops rides the tide of roasted flavours to balance, malt flavours flex more middle to end. Nutty yeast complements the roasted flavours, upfront yet vague fruitiness with clean alcoholic esters. Drying effect and flavour take over the after taste with remnants of the medicinal phenols as well as some fruitiness.
Notes: Not a bad try, a tad too much roasted malt flavour with a close to over kill phenolic character that seems too clean. Say it again, not bad but not close to a real Belgian Dubbel whether abbey or trappist or just from Belgium.

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.
