4.63/5  rDev +20.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A growler from Ale Yeah, Roswell, GA served in a Westmalle chalice.

A - A dark bourbon brown with a fizzy head that runs away quickly and no lacing from my sampling.

S - Sweet caramel notes with a hint of buttery bread.

T - The caramel and roasty malt goodness comes through on the front end of the palate. Surprisingly the middle carries a little hops nugget. It leaves on the back-end with a nice buttery belgian taste you would expect with some of the roasted taste coming back for an encore.

M - The battle between the tight carbonation and the slippery feel (Who said Diacetyl is a bad thing) keep your mouth from being bored.

O - A very good and fairly complex representation of the style. If you are looking for a dubbel with a little something extra then this beer won't disappoint at all. Yet another quality effort from the little brewery from OK.

Serving type: growler

3.84/5  rDev 0%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 4

Pours lightly hazy, dark brown-amber from a 22 oz bottle., Had a huge, medium density, tan head on top that settled fairly quickly.

Smell: Bready with dark fruits and subtle chocolate. [Served too cold, probably impairing the aroma and flavor.]

Taste: WAY more like a Belgian quad than expected, with a alcohol presence that seemed more like 9%. Also seemed more like a barrel-aged beer than one would expect. The apparent booziness is not unwelcome, and seems to add complexity, if perhaps overwhelming some more subtle flavors.

Mouthfeel: Medium+ body with medium-high carbonation; harsh for style.

Overall: A pretty good, but not great, example of the dubbel style; Compared to a true Belgina dubbel, this one has a more intense flavor (more like a quad) and, perhaps, is slightly less aromatic.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Brought the bottle back from Oklahoma city a year ago...poured in a chalice....lost an ounce on the floor as this is a gusher! Minimal head quickly disappeared. Aroma of raisins, figs, dark malt, caramel. Moderate carbonation, full moutfeel, overall quite tasty. Notes of raisins, caramel, dark malts, galangal root, and a subtle alcohol warmth. As it warms up more melon rind notes appear...small sediment floaties at the end. Nice complexity and flavors.
