3.65/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Toronados

A: Brown and slightly murky with a very thin cream colored head.

S: Lots of fruity esters along with some grape, raisin, banana and clove.

T: Banana, some malt, dates and a lot of breadiness. To me, it was a little too one-noted, but it wasn't awful.

On-tap at Green Flash

A: This beer pours dark amber in color with a tall khaki head.

S: The aroma starts off with a big time sweetness. There is a very intense banana note. In addition, there is a sugary note which gives a bit of a candy (Runts) feeling. A decent bread character and mild toast.

T: Sweet bananas and brown sugar with a nice bready note and plenty of toffee, as well. In addition to the brown sugar, there is caramel and a light raisin flavor. Just a mild spice character in the background.

M: The body is medium with a medium carbonation.

O: Green Flash has really done a good job with the Belgian-style beers I've had from them and this was no exception. Very nice.

8/3/2011

On tap at URGE.

A: Dark amber with a dense cap of beige foam.

S: Moderately sweet bready malt mingles with esters that are redolent of apple, banana, and raisin. There's a brown sugar note accompanying caramel and a whisper of chocolate. Alcohol is evident but complimentary. Some clove is evident.

T: Sweet and complex bready malt flavor with notes of raisin and prune. Banana is faint. The beer is lightly spicy, bringing clove to mind. Alcohol is soft.

M: Upper medium in body with a lower high level of carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth.

Overall: A nice Dubbel from Green Flash. Recommended.
