Although the vintage of the tested bottle is 2012, this beer tastes just like what I remembered at that time when I visited this brewery in Chicago. It still maintains the good, opaque mahogany color, along with the great blend of dark candy sugar, dark fruits and caramel malts, as well as the right amount of phynols for a Dubbel. The caramel phynol aroma and subtle carbonation compliments the nicely robust, grainy aftertaste this beer has. There is no annoying bitterness to worry about, which is fantastic for the style. In fact, this beer is so good, Anheiser-Busch discontinued it instead of making more of it!! So until they do the actual right decision to bring it back, I recommend the Dark Truth Stout from Boulevard Brewing Company, the Dubbel Vission from Aftershock Brewing Company and one of the Dubbel style beers from Rip Current Brewing Company.
