Dubbel was on my mind...
A: was fairly dark on the pour, lots of head -- at least 2 fingers...frothy..
S: somewhat sweet... get faint hints of the spices listed on the label, not really much banana...
T: I didn't appreciate it as much as I thought.. Lacked on the Belgian Dubbel I'd hoped for, maybe the Anise was too much for me?
M: Medium bodied, decent flow.
O: A bottle I'd probably not buy again myself... Just not quite my thing..Probably go Ommegang, Chimay or Allagash first..

Served on tap at fountainhead.
A: deep red, dense creamy head, spotty lacing, nice head retention
S: nose features cloves, banana, and grape, and cherry
T: a bit harsh at first with the malts , brown sugar, cloves, spices, balance is a little off
Mf: low carb, thick body
O: not very impressive, lacks balance, the quad is much better

750ml corked bottle
A – Pours a deep ruby red with a two-finger head that sticks around until the last sip.
S – Clove, a little banana, and some sweet malt aroma.
T – A little clove, spices, and some banana. It has a surprisingly clean yeast profile with a very subdued belgian character. It actually has a little alcohol burn, which is surprising for a beer that's over a year old, but still pretty easy to drink. I started to taste a lot more banana as it warmed up. I didn't pick up any molasses flavor at all.
M – Full bodied, finishes semi-dry.
O – Overall, this is a fairly decent beer. I'd like to buy a fresh bottle and see what differences there are.

Pours with minimal head. light to dark brown in color.
clean smell with a little sweetness also a faint hint of clove.
Taste is nothing to write home about.
Not much else to say. Overall the beer is ok, but I expected more from boulevard on this one. Maybe i got a bad bottle?

Thanks to JeepCop for this beer...
A: Pours a murky, hazy, redish-brown with about a half finger of light khaki colored head. The foam fades fairly quickly leaving a frothy ring along the top of the beer.
S: It smells of clove, ginger, lemon, dirt, orange, green banana, and yeast. There is some serious malt in the background, but it's hard to pick out with all the dominating scents in this brew.
T: The taste follows the nose. It starts out spicy with some clove and dirt. The belgian yeast is paramount. There are big notes of ginger and unripened banana.
M: Medium bodied beer. The carbonation is a bit high for this beer. The flavors linger on the palate, but they are a wacky mix of dirt and funk.
O: I'm really disappointed with this beer. I've never been a fan on Dubbels, and this beer seems pretty standard for the style. I had moderate expectations for this beer, but this is the first Boulevard beer that I've ever disliked.

Enjoyed on-tap @ Southside Brewing Company (Formerly known as The Stable) in St. Louis, MO for $6. Tapped from the bricked Handle w/ Boulevard on the base & the Nommo Dubbel pair of mermaids cheering into a 16oz Pint Glass.
Aroma- Has tons of malt and sweetness but nothing much else. A small caramel note is in here and thats all folks.
Appearance- Received with a 1.5 finger head that has poor retention. Has a caramel looking body that is cloudy. Leaves no lacing at all.
Flavor- Doesn't have too much strength to it or any other attributes for that matter... Has a light caramel taste and light bitterness at the finish. Not rich or complexed like it should be.
Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Light-Medium Carbonation, Has a bit of filler with ingredient but then watery at the finish. Not like it should be for the style.
Overall Impression- Not enough strength or body for the style... I have a bottle of this and am now wondering if it was a bad investment... Will be reviewing either way. Go for others in the Smokestack Series, this one was a dud.
