look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

poured from 22oz bottle into imperial pint glass

A-cloudy mahogany with about 2 finger head that fades to a small cap leaving a little lacing behind

S-a little carmel malt and some dark fruit

T-dark fruit is all cherry in the taste and some sweet brown sugar

M-highly carbonationed and fizzy

O-more of a cherry soda than beer because it is so fizzy and cherry flavored

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: An opaque reddish brown with a thin tan colored head.

S: Of course it resembles a Kriek lambic in smell. There is a touch of brown sugar and fig also.

T: A somewhat tart cherry flavor up front that mixes with a slight brown sugar flavor. The cherry really takes over the beer all the way into the finish which is tart and dry.

M: Good feel, light and has good carbonation that makes the beer refreshing.

O: Pretty good. Judging it as a dubbel, it's average.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured from a bottle to a snifter. Had a brown color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of creamy, fairly long-lasting head. Not much lacing.

S: Smelled of cherries, but not a whole lot else. A little one-dimensional.

T: Like the aroma, the taste was dominated by cherries, but it also had some malt and yeast as well. A little thin, especially in the finish. Not a terrible flavor, but seems a bit slapdash.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: I don't know if I'd call this beer a Dubbel - it seems more like a fruit beer to me. No matter what you call it, it seems very uneven.

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

A: Pours out a murky brown color with an almost-white head. Not all that much to look at.

S: A lot of sweetness coming off on the nose on this beer: caramel, and maraschino cherries. I get no hops on the nose at all.

T: I get some puckering effect from the tartness of the cherries which tells me, though, that this beer isn't sweet. There is nothing wrong with this beer, I just don't care for it. Rogue lists it on their website as a Pale Ale, BA lists it as a Dubbel - it is neither. It's identity is lost somewhere.

M: Big carbonation and a medium body.

D: It's quite drinkable, however, put everything together and it's just not a good beer for me.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A - Rusty brown body with an off-white head.

S - Tart cherries, brown sugar, raisins.

T - Acidic and tart cherries up front. Some burnt brown sugar, raisins, hints of caramel malt. Finishes semi dry. Aftertaste is like cherry NyQuil.

M - Moderate fizzy carbonation, thin body.

The tart cherry flavor is the only thing going for this beer. It just falls flat and halfway through I had no desire to continue.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle. No dates.

Weirdly colored body, not quite red, not quite brown. The bottle says mahogany, so we'll go with that. Looks like brackish water. 2 finger tan head that fizzles out to a faint cover.

Black cherry sweetness with a slight medicinal essence. It reminds me of a Luden's cough drop. Not getting much more than the cherries.

Dry and malty. Very grainy. Cooked cherries, more sweet than tart, but just right. Some earthy yeast tones give this a doughy, cherry pie feeling.

Fairly one dimensional, but still a nice beer. Good cherry flavors.
