- Bot. 3.17.14 consumed 8.15.14

(3.55) A: Milky beige covering, mostly lasting, rests atop a darken,dense sweet ice tea colored body. Slow rising carbonation when backlighted is gentle on the rise.

(3.55) S: Candy orange and cola, sun brewed tea and toasted malt are first impressions. Mid-level strength with earthy dry tea and fresh herbal hops. There are moments of fresh green stemmy scents as well.

(3.65) T: Flavor was sweet malt and tea, Earthy cola, spicy dry herbal notes with hints of cinnamon. Things finish off with a lightly dry toasted malt sweetness and spicy hop warmth.

(3.6) M: Mouthful was light on the tip of the tonuge, feeling much fuller around the edges and cheeks. Some silty residual maltiness provides texture.

(3.6) O: Nice drinkability, sweet malt and earthy tea and spicing adds complexity while a silty residual malting adds texture and depth.

An extremely mediocre to less than mediocre Abbey style dubbel.

This beer is far too light in body and color to compare to the finer representations of the style. It pours a transparent brown with a thin, unimpressive head (poured by an Old Dominion employee at a beer festival) into a weizen glass.

Taste profile is slightly sweet, but not caramelly, and there are no defining fruit or malt notes to speak of. The flavor is almost all candy sugar with a sour quality that fails to capture the depth of the style. There simply isn't enough roasted malt character or richness for a dubbel.

Mouthfeel is carbonated and bubbly - not smooth as I would want. This beer would benefit from aging or aerating or nitro.

Overall: it falls in the style and is neither ss deep or, alternatively, as refreshing as I could want.
