A= copper with an off-white head.

S= inviting hops, malts and Belgian yeasts.

T= unfortunately, my immediate and continuing impression was that this beer suffered from a fractured nationality-- it's much like a US IPA blended with a nice Belgian Dubel-- and it doesn't work at all for me. I was talking to a few other beer-heads around me and they totally agreed with my observations since they'd already tried the beer.

M= clash of the titans

O= an interesting attempt at creativity that unfortunately isn't ready for prime-time.

The beer poured a cloudy amber brown, pretty to loom at, yet lacked on building a head. The deep tan, bubbly one finger high head, dissipated fast, with no lacing.
The smell is Of dark fruit like prunes, brown sugar, honey, maybe some pear and yeast.
Tasting the beer, the fruit bouquet is up front, followed by more sweetness with the brown sugar and caramel notes as well as a goos malt backbone. In the end the yeast gives great Dubbel character to the beer.
Over all I think that this is a decent beer, but there are so many equal or better ones for this style.

750ml bottle from Junto Society. Into the "new" Flying Dog glass.

Appearance - Solid brown with some amber highlights. Thin perhaps less than one finger off white head. No lacing and hardly retention.

Aroma - Malty. chocolatey, Belgian spice, dark fruits, brown sugar. yeast.

Taste - Follows the aroma profile pretty well. Big malty flavor. Dark fruits and chocolate. Sweet brown sugar flavor that I suppose is coming form the maple syrup.

Medium bodied. Fizzy. Lingering spicy finish. Enjoyable but a little off on the style. I'll sit on the 2nd bottle for awhile and see if anything else develops.

On tap at Max's today.

The beer pours a reddish amber color with some brown hilights. The beer has pretty good head retention and decent lacing, and I get some nice cherry, brown sugar and underlying spice on the nose. The flavor profile replicates the nose in tnis moderately sweet beer, but with some light chocolate and a hint of licorice on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and the finish is fairly long, with some noticeable spice. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and drinkability is pretty good.

A nice enough beer, but I'm just not sure why I'd want to drink this as opposed to the actual version of this style. It really doesn't stand out otherwise (IMHO).
