Pours hazy-ish brown that isn't transparent until you reach the bottom of the glass. Finger-thick foam that sits atop the beer until the beer is finished. Good amount of lacing on the glass when it's gone.
Smells fruity and estery, in a typical belgian fashion. Sweet and roasty. Small amount of hops.
Tastes great. Sweet and malty, very low hops subdued by fruity yeast characteristic.
Mouthfeel is sweet but not overly thick. Normal carbonation, which for the style makes it a tad undercarbonated.
Overall I liked this beer a lot. Sucked it down a little too fast with dinner. I wouldn't say it follows the Belgian dubble style perfectly but it is certainly a good beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to Ashley for sharing this at Oneinchaway's tasting.
Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, dark fruit, and sugar aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet malt and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors for an American take on the style.

A little strange, but quite enjoyable. Why this one is listed as a dubbel is not clear to me. I would think it was more of a brown ale, albeit slightly hoppy, and slightly more carbonated than typical.
Flavor and aroma were nice, brown sugar, dark fruits, a little bit of yeast, and some floral hops. With a good smooth, medium body, I found this beer quite enjoyable and would certainly buy it again.
