Prune and dark dried fruit aromas, toffee and a hint of chocolate
Pours deep reddish brown under a thick, persistent, off-white 2" foam cap that produces classic cathedral window lace.
Dark malt toffee flavors that approach chocolate, dried fruit - primarily prune and fig, a touch of sweetness but on the dry side for a dubbel
Creamy smooth medium body with above average fine soft carbonation.

12 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a very pretty, cloudy, amber/brown color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds that gathered in the center of the top of the beer.

Aroma: Malty, bready, and slightly funky. From the Belgian yeast maybe? There are some notes of crystalized sugar and dried stone fruit, such as prunes or raisins. Toffee.

Taste: Yep, that’s a Belgian dubbel! Strong notes of malt and freshly baked sourdough bread, followed by some toffee-like sweetness, dried stone fruit, like prunes or raisins or figs, and a little bit of Belgian funk. Really, really good!

Mouthfeel: Slightly chewy, as a dubbel should be, but with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 7.0%, there is a surprising little amount of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a really, really good American version of a Belgian dubbel! Malty, earthy, bready, fruity, funky, slightly sweet, delicious!

Look: Dark amber brown with red hues. Big Frothy off white head that disappeared quickly. Smell: Belgian spicy yeast, roasted malt, black wild cherries, candy sugar, toffee sweetness as the brew gets warmer. Taste: wheat, mild spicy yeast, candy sugar, cherries in the backend, roasted nut type of flavor, bread dough. Feel: medium body, boring carbonation.

Overall: this is an ok brew, the only weakness this provides is the boring carbonation, it isn’t as lively as I would have liked but it comes together nicely. This is worthy.
