Poured from tap into snifter at lokal in Miami. Pours a deep murky brown with very little head. Looks almost flat but I can see a bit of carbonation rising. Great belgian yeast aromas...dried fruit and raison. Taste is great. Belgian yeast and raison figgy chocolate. ..almost quad like but finishes with a hint of spicy rye. Really cool brew. Its smooth and just easy to drink. Awesome brew again by the bruery.

No bottle date
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep, murky brown with a two finger tall, light tan head that dissipates rather quickly leaving spotty lacing.

Aroma: Big spicy, slightly tart smelling rye right away, Belgian candy sugar and plum-like yeast phenols with citrus-y hops around the edges. There is some sweet biscuit-y malt neatly tucked underneath it all. Definitely smells akin to a very rye forward Dubbel.

Taste: Sweet, juicy plum up front, with some biscuit-y Belgian malts right along with it. A very nice, overtly American citric hoppiness builds up to the slightly tart, peppery rye off dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to thin body with a soft, gentile carbonation.

Overall: An interesting take on the Belgian Dubbel style. However, I certainly wish the taste was as Rye forward as the nose belied. I do have to say while the mouthfeel is certainly a bit thin for the style, the beer remains very quaffable and offers just enough depth to intrigue the palate.

From bottle...gushed a bit upon opening.
Pours a dark brown with significant amber head.
Big carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of roasted malts, bitter fruit juice, carob...got some funkiness. Overall rich and bold, strange & funky, bitter. Not the easiest to drink but also intriguing and fun.
