Pours a clear ruddy copper hue. Not much head but what's there holds on for a long time.

Aroma is strong malt with dark fruit. Fig, date and plums. Very nice almost like a great Belgian double without the funk.

Taste is more of the strong dark fruits and malt. Hops are far in the background but there are some earthy notes and a bubblegum yeasty character. The finish transitions to residual sweetness that is just perfect. There is a nice, full flavor packed in this one.

Mouthfeel has light carbonation that matches the profile of this brew. It has a medium mouthfeel. Very drinkable.

Overall this is a fantastic French Country ale. One of Two Brothers best regular offerings. It's a great change of pace from my usual go-to APA(Sidekick)/IPA's. Way to go guys!

Pours a clear copper color with a sugar white lacing for a head.

Smells of biscuity malts with toffee and caramel sweetness.

Toasted biscuit malt flavor with toffee and nutty bitterness characteristics.

Medium body with a tingle of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Highly drinkable with a great flavor, a very enjoyable brew well worth trying and something I will definitely look for again in the future.

Had in a bottle at *Citizen in MLPS MN with Gravlax Benidict

A very nice pairing and a perfect Saturday Brunch

A:Clear Copper Liquid with white head and absolutely no lacing

S: slight straw aroma

T: Malty but not sweet, smooth and spicy on the back end with a pleasant bitter aftertaste, hops seam slight and on the backend

M: full body with a dryness that leaves a slight malty bitterness in the mouth

O:A well balanced ale that is a good pairing with any foods, pleasant and compliments foods but does not cave in as a simple beverage, it is distinct enough to add to the meal as a component and not simply hydration.

Typical beer from Two Brothers, and by that I mean a brewery that mistakes quirkiness for quality.

Domaine DuPage's taste experience is a wild collision of incompatible flavors including heavy malt, honey, floral notes and caramel. In other words, there's a lot going on, but it doesn't all make sense. The clash of flavors in your mouth is noticeable, but not really something you want to repeat, in my opinion.

Based on tasting their other beers, there is no indication that Two Brothers is liable to change their philosophy, which seems to be "Make it Different." But "different" doesn't always mean "better."
