Brewed for the Muddy Pig in St. Paul, MN.

A - Clear, burgundy color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left minimal lacing

S - Good dried fruit aroma with some malty notes.

T - Sweet bready malt flavor with some dried dark fruits like plum and raisin. Some subtle spiciness.

M - Crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale.

D - This was a cool find at the Muddy Pig. Glad I got to try it.

I was unaware this was brewed only for the pig.

That being said, I thought this beer was awful. If it would have been labeled a dunkelweisse, then it would be decent, but as a dubbel, no thanks.

Over-carbonated. Way too much bananas, cloves, and chocolate. Just didn't taste like the abbeys make their dubbels.

I had a few sips and new that this beer would be tough to finish.
