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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber in color. It poured with a finger high beige head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of dark fruits, candi sugar and spices are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the spices are not as prevalent. The candi sugars contribute a light amount of sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I enjoyed this dubbel because it seemed to have the perfect amount of sweetness and is quite drinkable.
