Finally got around to reveiwing one of my beer for your buck favorites. i am glad there is another great brewery coming out of the midwest.

A-This is a great copper color and just a bit cloudy. A 1/2 finger head that quickly went away and left very little lacing. There is a low but steady carbonation that i am sure will lend itself to good moutfeel.

S-one of the best things about this ale is the toasted notes that remind me of a fall harvest: pumkin, sweet potato, pine, coriander, and tea leaves.

T-this is an ale with a bite that seems to hit at just the right moment. Just when you think you are going to be unimpressed, there it is. eat sip leaves just enough flavor for me to want one sip more. Its starts out sweet and turns bitter before an unagi finish. very well layered.

M-There is still carbonation in the last half of this bottle and i would assume it is due to active yeast> Thanks yeast, old friend.

O-I keep an eye out for this and have a corner spot of my mixed six reserved for this one. I am excited about exploring all of the Two brothers varieties that are becoming available to the NY area.

Beer poured from a bottle into a Conical shaped pint glass

A - Beer pours with a deep amber, slightly reddish colored body; well-carbonated; off-white, creme colored head forms; frothy and about one finger in size; held well; streaky lacing

S - Light caramel malt character, with a touch of spice; bit airy; nutty brown ale nose

T - Very sweet caramel and brown sugar taste upfront; dark fruit flavors, like figs, raisin and dates; malt flavor washes out pretty quickly and finishes with a hop and grass flavor; nutty with a touch of rye and grains

M - Kind of a thin body; effervescent; sweet lingering caramel taste; not much hop bitterness to this one

D - Good taste and easy to enjoy; light flavor profile characteristics make this beer enjoyable any time of the year; I will admit that this is definitely a hard beer to make out

A hazy, dark orange beer with a half inch of creamy head. Modest retention and lacing.

Aroma is fairly sweet and fruity, with noticeable bitterness. A faint metallic note is detected underneath.

Taste follows the nose, although the bitterness is more prominent than expected. Very much a traditional European style hoppiness. Other than that the flavor is mostly sweet and malty, lightly fruity, and with that odd metallic undercurrent encountered in the aroma.

Carbonation is good, body is medium-thin, sort of a short and snappy finish. Refreshing but not as much as I'd hoped. This brewery makes 2 beers (at least) that are even more quenching and drinkable: the Dog Days Dortmunder style and the Ebel's Weiss. Domaine Dupage is nice but simple and unexceptional, saved to a degree by its unexpected bitterness.
