A - Brown beer with some red highlights. Large head that had decent retention and some nice lacing.

S - Smells of caramel, brown sugar, raisins, other dark fruit. A little bit of alcohol and some almost cough syrupy notes.

T - Tastes of caramel, brown sugar, and an interesting peanuty taste. There is some light fruit in there and some yeast and spices.

M - Medium bodied, lower carbonation.

O - Has some off flavors in it, but it's not horrible. Not a beer I'd be lkely to have again on my next visit.

Served in a tulip glass at the brewpub.

Wait, is this a reference to the magazine? Right on... It pours a clear copper-sienna topped by a finger of dusty cream-white foam. The nose comprises caramel, toffee, biscuit, clove, light black pepper, very light cinnamon, and some very light orange zest. The taste brings in more of the same, though with an increased orange zest character and a touch of what seems like straw. The Belgian character is really toned-down, an afterthought. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, an okay dubbel, but one that strays a bit too far from convention for my liking. The only real vestige of the Belgian yeast is a slightly overdone bit of spiciness, and the hops o'erwhelm whatever else could be lying beneath.

This is my favorite offering of the Haymarket brews that I've tried. The flavor evokes a melange of dark fruit, anise and hazelnut; the yeast notes are equally distributed between spicy and fruit. Concord grape notes are yielded by the nose more than any spice. Really nice creamy feel, easy drinking, quite nice overall.

Solid, well balanced beer with quality ingredients. Tasted much like a doppelbock (1516?) in that it had a toasty caramel smell, sweet finish, and not too complex like some of the abbey ales can be. Not being a "hophead", this is my choice on the menu and I could drink many of these. Keep them coming and the neighbors will be right-happy!
