A very nice Belgian style dubbel. Poured from the growler I got just a few hours ago from my
LONG road trip, this ale is a medium brown in color with hints of red and a very thin off white
layer of foam that dies quickly leaving decent lacing. Nose of earthy Belgian yeast, brown
sugar, and light Belgian spices. Flavors have a light brown sugar flavor, earthy dark fruits of
plums and cherries, and a nice sweetness that presides from start to finish. Lightly syrupy
mouthfeel is lightly carbonated leaving a sweet finish. Very nice.

Cheers

I had this on-tap at Jackie O's during the release even this weekend. Poured into a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours a murky reddish brown with not much head at all.

Smell: Sweet malt with some brown sugar and banana. Quite mild overall.

Taste: This beer tasted like it wants to be sweet, but falls a bit short. The malt is a bit watered down. There is some fruit but no real maple flavor. The finish is bitter with some alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with smooth carbonation and a bitter finish.

Overall: I really wanted the maple to be more prevalent. This beer should have been a little bit sweeter.

Had this the night before the June 25th release. Received in a snifter.

3.5 A: Deep amber/light brown color. Came filled to the top with no head.

3.5 S: Overload of the JO's character. I like the JO's house taste, but this might be a bit much. Woody, with an almost astringent booziness. Lightly vegetal with a nutty brown malt component. Light spiciness with clove running the show. Light prune and tobacco flavors.

3.0 T: A bit weak on flavor. Nutty, tobacco, plum and prune, with a clove spiciness. Not as boozy as the nose.

2.5 M: Lighter medium body. A bit undercarbonated and the carbonation itself is dead (far from spritzy).

3.0 D: Not a big fan of this one.

I had this on tap at Jackie O's during a nice little tasting with Brad and others. Dubbels aren't really my thing (although I remember a time when I loved them), but I can tell this is a very good representation of the style.

This poured a transparent brown color, a few fingers of near-white foam on top. It smells estery and earthy, very Belgian in character. As a big plus it doesn't taste like a yeast starter, which is a common malady I've encountered in many other American takes on the style. The flavors are basically spicy dark fruits, reminiscent of a wiezenbock. Excellent really, if you like the style this is a solid one.
