This is quite unique.
Burnished amber in color. Slightly hazy. Firm oatmeal colored head develops 2 inches, then slowly recedes to a scattered milky ring after a few minutes.
Smell is the best part. The date smells are deep and complex. From meaty Medjool to a fruity sweet Barhi date that leans toward honey, the aromas are in constant motion.
Taste is moderately sweet. Fairly forward and rounded out with the dates with a brown bread malt toning it down a tad. Yeasty notes are very subdued, the way I prefer. Probably a little off from style.
Mouthfeel is moderately full for style. Carbonation remains present but not overwhelming.
Overall, I like this but for the Dubbel purist, I think it would be a bit disappointing.

On-tap at Bruery Provisions

An color with an off-white head. Heavy bubblegum, candy, sugar, and banana aromas to this. A nice touch of dates, but it could use more. Toasted malt and toffee are also prominent. Tastes fairly sweet, but manages to not be cloying. Lots of bubblegum and banana with a good amount of sugar and dates. A light toasted character to it and a slight yeastiness.

This does have a little more yeasty flavor than many Dubbels. It's also less sweet. More watery body than typical of the style, but it's pleasing and refreshing here. Clear dark amber in the Saxo tall tulip. Attractive foam that lasts well and lots of lacing. A scratchy hoppy note along with the drying effect of the Belgian yeast. The dates are just part of the complexity and add a little fruitiness without standing out. Pleasing maltiness.

Nicely sudsy in the mouth. Another attractive label from Hangar 24, and another interesting beer from a brewery that seems to be getting its act together. Thoroughly drinkable with the restrained sugars. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Barons Marketplace on Point Loma Blvd.
