look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

2015 release from 22oz bottle. Pours dark with tan head, no lacing. A bit woody smell with malts. Trying to find the cherry here but very faint. Overall not tasting what may have been intended. Rum is faint.

3.33/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: 3.5 - Dark mahogany color with a head that fades very quickly.
S: 3.5 - Sweet malt makes up the bulk of the scent, with a little bit of fruitiness.
T: 3.25 - Disappointing flavor. Plenty of sweet malt, but none of the yeast character of a dubbel.
M: 3.25 - Watery, not enough carbonation by far.
O: 3.25 - Quite a let down--easily worse than any of the beers in either Rahr's or Lakewood's lineup. Don't know what they were thinking.

My son wanted to try this collaboration between Rahr & Sons and Lakewood Brewing.
Mahogany brown color. Belgian fragrances. Taste? Not like the aroma. Reminds me of the bottom shelf green teas I got in Korea when I didn't know better - they were cut with some kind of wheat grass or something. This is grassy. Some malt. And more grass.

I'm not sure which collaborator is responsible for the off flavor, but it's not all bad...I just don't recommend it for the price.
