3.28/5  rDev -13.7%

A-a slightly hazy medium amber with a gorgeous fingers worth of creamy looking head

S-dark fruits, caramel, malt, and a spicy clove finish

T-taste is similar to the smell, brown bread like malt, caramel, light raisins, and spices. I am getting a high amount of carbonation that is very overpowering and also a slight metallic taste.

M-medium body, high carbonation, dry finish

Overall the look was perfect, smell was good, but the taste I just couldn't get into. Too much carbonation, too light on flavors, and has a very off putting metallic taste. I have had this beer before and it did not taste like this, hoping its just a bad batch.

A beer haiku for you:

"Short of a Belgian;
Better than some, but not 'tops'--
Single use serving."

Hopeful--as I am with all domestics when comparing to our Belgian standards--and again one that falls just shy. This category has some of the world standards, so can't be too hard on it. Worthy of trying, not heavy imbibing.

cheers!

Thanks to BA spointon for this extra in our trade!

Poured in to an Affligem stemmed glass, even a hard pour did not produce much head. Color was an unfiltered light brown and aroma was very hard to determine. It was probably very subtle, but due to a little congestion, I could not make it out. Taste was mild and a little weak; I was expecting something a little stronger in taste. It is listed as 7.60% ABV but the bottle I have says 7.0% ABV on the label.

After letting it get to room temperature, I could detect a faint raisin aroma and the taste was very smooth. Still not quite what I expected from a Dubbel.
