Poured a flat brown with little to no head.
Sweet chicory and light black tea flavor.
Spicy finish with a cloying clingy film left over on the finish.
This is a perfect example of when a beer ceases to be a beer due to the degree of added ingredients.
This "beer" is barely drinkable, i forced down 8 oz, the rest will be used in cooking.
Even after cleansing my palette with an extra trappist beer, i still have a cloying film lingering from this awful beer. i wish i could give negative ratings.

Picked up a bottle of this at Julio's. Poured into a Duvel tulip, reviewed from notes.
A - Pours a clear deep brown garnet hue with a nice one finger fizzy creamy head that fades to leave a fizzy mocha blanket. Average at best.
S - Ehh..whats going on here? Smells like cereal malts and roasted meh. I mean, seriously, Pretty Things X Ale 1945 smelled better than this.
T - I laugh as I write this, my friend said it best...this tastes like an old, dirty kvass. Again, not sure what went wrong here. Bad batch perhaps?
M - Mouthfeel was relatively thin for the style. Yeah.
O - wtf. Completely baffled by this beer. Not sure how it happened but this was absolute garbage. One of the worst beers I've ever had.

Pours a sienna brown color in the Bellegems Bruin tall glass. Nicely foamy and plenty of spritz on the tongue. Is that fingernail polish I smell? Very odd phenolic odor.
Tastes so earthy, I'd say it's more like dirt. Think of how wet, mildewy wood smells. Now imagine how it would taste in a beer. The flavors lurch around and vanish, leaving the taste of cheap root beer with a bitterish edge. I taste old beets, buckwheat honey, nut shells, and some kind of hard candy. I don't know how this could be called a Dubbel, but if it has to be rated that way the competition is a little overwhelming.
Maybe after having spent $15 for this people have a need to like it. I have an need to try one more half glass tomorrow before I feed it to the African daisies. From the DF-branded 500 ml capped bottle bought at Liticker's in San Diego.
