Sampled at a beer tasting at Weidmanns in Meridian. Pours dark amber brown with off-white head.

Smell is sweet with chocolate and coffee.

Taste follows well with lots of dark chocolate sweetness and coffee notes. Slight fruit notes. Light bitterness.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with average carbonation.

Overall this was good.

22 ounce bomber. Light tan head. Low retention. Some lacing, not sticky. Clear amber body. Aroma is interesting because of the coffee notes coming from a lighter colored beer, not often seen. Some caramel malt but the coffee dominates. Taste is slightly nutty, again with coffee and slight caramel. Easy to drink, unique and tasty.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #79 (Aug 2013):

Coffee, chili peppers & cacao nibs in a beer, and a Dubbel at that. Surprisingly, with all that’s going on in this brew, the Dubbel is pretty well showcased, as the other flavors never push to be dominant, but complement instead.

STYLE: Dubbel
ABV: 6.0%
AVAILABILITY: Rotating

LOOK: Nearly pitch black, cracking tan head

SMELL: Mild coffee, chili peppers, toasted wood, bready, earthy, faint boozy alcohol, brown bread

TASTE: Smooth, slick, medium body, full-malt jacket, peppery, mild twang, fresh coffee, chili warmth, modest hopping, toasted cacao nibs, chicory, walnuts, wood, semidry finish
