Notes/Commercial Description:
Dubbel is a beer style developed by Belgian Trappists in the Middle Ages, part of a naming convention that also includes the lighter single and stronger trippel. All well and good, you say, but what's this “Nommo” business? Well, the Nommo are ancestral spirits worshipped by the Dogon tribe of the West African nation of Mali. The name is derived from a Dogon word meaning “to make one drink.” No, really. Nommo usually described as amphibious, hermaphroditic, fish-like creatures, were created by the sky god Amma, who caused them to multiply by splitting them into doubled sets of twins. Seeing a trend here? Maybe it's farfetched, but we think the story of the Nommo makes this whole enterprise a little more fun and interesting.

Poured into a snifter. Beautiful. Carbonation is visible with a great tan head. Ruby in color.

Banana and cloves with a nice amount a caramel.

The taste is absolutely amazing. Raisin, prune, and fig all together. Chewy mouthfeel and somewhat of a rye character. This must all be from the spices. Delicious tobacco notes and more breast notes.

Really amazing.

Pour is deep amber - light tan head is rather frothy, nice retention throughout.

Love the nose, sweet malts, belgian yeast funk, anise, corriander and raisins. Nose really hits the mark to style.

Crisp, carbonic entry - sweetness builds on the palate - full, rich maltiness is held back by the carbonation. Quite complex, fruity, quite spicy but in a complimentary way - nothing dominates or overpeowers the malts. Tight hop bittering on the finish - probably more american than belgian tradition - but that works splendidly for me.

A beautifully crafted beer, true to the style's tradition, but with it's own direction. Complexity and depth of flavor make for an outstanding experience.

An enjoyable brew from Boulevard. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a two-finger, thick, creamy head; minimal lacing. On the nose, I got hints of spice - cinnamon, coriander, clove; sweet toffee and banana. The taste is extravagant - sweet and malty, a bit peppery with a boozy finish. Feel is medium-bodied; lightly carbonated.

Love Boulevard. This is yet another solid beer. I find that complex beers often go well with complex foods, and this one paired wonderfully with the pumpkin soup and garlic toast. Cheers!

I was in KC for a wedding and stopped by a liquor store. When I was checking out the cashier eyed what I was buying and recommended this. Good recommendation my friend!

Pours a nice caramel brown color. Dense and delicate cream colored head which slowly recedes leaving a fair amount of lace sticking to the sides of the glass.

Smells very distinctively of caraway, molasses, and perhaps pepper (?).

All these aromas come through quite nicely in the flavor. Very smooth medium/light bodied for the style. A particular earthy dryness is apparent in the finish. This dryness is complimented nicely by the sweetness of the molasses. The carbonation is perfect on the beer and the mouth feel honestly couldn't be any better. This is definitely worth seeking out. I know I will be.

I've said it before, but this is the direction modern brewing needs to take. Inventing new styles and renovating older ones. A tip of the hat to Boulevard for this one. Cheers!
