look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
TEMP: Cellared @ approx 45 degrees
Pours a very nice dark brown color with ruby tinting. Very creamy head of light beige colored foam, almost two-fingers worth, sits on top. Retention is excellent and the lacing is almost curtain-like and very sticky.
The nose is somewhat subdued, but still very nice. Mild hints of dark fruits and toasted nuts. Belgian candi sugar and a nice hint of rich maltiness. Good medium yeast presence.
Mmmm....nice medium-level malt presence. Nothing overwhelming, just a nice hint of richness. Hops hit right in the middle. They're not overstated at all, but they kind of overpower the dark fruits that are trying to be noticed. A nice level of spices and a hint of yeastiness comes in at the end.
This beer has a good amount of balance going on. Unfortunately, I want my dubbels to be pretty malt forward, so while this is good, it's not my favorite.
A nice full-bodied brew. Very smooth. Medium level of carbonation, filled with tiny little bubbles. This one has a wonderful amount of creaminess, which is a highpoint for me.
7.0%abv is a little outside of the guidelines for a session beer. As well as it's hidden in this one though, this is a great, drinkable beer

12oz. bottle poured into a stemmed tulip.
(A)- Pours a clear cranberry red color with some mahogany shades. Minimal off-white froth but with good retention.
(S)- Lots of biscuit-like yeast. Plenty of bubblegum meets some dark fruits and banana at the end.
(T)- Very similar to the smell with a dry biscuity yeast meets some dark fruits, banana, and subtle bubblegum.
(M)- A good carbonation level. A slight grainy feel the the beer texture-wise, but tastes great and minimal bitterness.
(O)- Not many american brewers makes a great dubbel, but this one is one of the best I have had from the states.
