12 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Clear, burnt amber color. Thin, off-white head that fades quickly to a cap. Good lacing.

S---Sweet, candy sugar & molasses. Raisin & plum. Some booziness is apparent.

T---Booziness disappears. Sweet, maybe too sweet. Caramel & molasses. Not as complex as the nose. Just too sweet.

F---Feels flat, like it's uncarbonated. Thick feel and maybe a bit oily.

O---There's promise here, but it doesn't fulfill it. I'm actually surprised as hell that I haven't had this one before, but it'll also be my last one.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker.

Appearance
Mahogany brown / copper. Excellent clarity. Moderate carbonation.

Nose
Bread, earth, molasses, clove, and banana.

Taste
Munich malts, caramelized brown sugar, dark candy syrup, and molasses. Earthy and toasty. Hints of banana. Lingering clove and potpourri spiciness.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, oily, crisp, effervescent, and lightly bitter.

Overall
Not remotely close to a Trappist Dubbel, but then again nobody does it like the monks. It makes a fine American Brown though.

Brewed almost in my back yard, it seemed worth a try. Delicious with malt dominating. Hardly any bitterness. I am very new to craft beers. It is very differerent from anything I've tried. Yummy

12 oz bottle

Pours clear maple brown, bit of lacing for a head.

Smells of molasses, candi sugar, biscuit and maple.

Flavor is of caramel, molasses, candi sugar, biscuit and banana.

Medium to full body, tingly carbonation on the tongue.

This beer looks nothing like a Belgian and smells overly sweet, but the taste is surprisingly not too far off. However it's not especially traditional. Decent, worth a try at least.

Nice caramel ruby color with excellent clarity. Head is grey-beige and 1 finger.

Aroma of a hot roast beef sandwich. I know that sounds weird, but it takes me back. Perhaps with Arby-Q sauce. Slight root beer barrel candy. Maybe some plum, I dunno. Roast beef sandwich is what's coming out the most.

The flavor contains a boozy burn right at the start, with hints of sarsaparilla, slightly plum, and tangerine gum. Lingering flavors of bubble gum-like yeast, slight molasses candy.

Painful carbonation in the belly, slight yeasty starch, slight drying alcohol.

Overall a very decent Dubbel. Not amazing, but definitely nothing to scoff at, and for $7.99 a six pack I'd have it again. Bought my single, probably will go back for more. Exceeded my expectations.

Nice Belgium style Dubbel with rich malty flavors of caramel, raisen, plum and spiced rum. Pours medium golden reddish brown with light lacy head.

A: dark managing color with some nice ruby red and purple notes

S: raisins, plums, brown sugar, fig, toffee, and sweet caramel

T: brown sugar, plums, raisins upfront. Fig, caramel, and toffee behind that. A big bready malty backbone

M: lighter side of medium with high carbonation. A bit lighter of a mouthfeel than I like in the style

O: an alright representation of a Dubbel. Dark fruits take center stage, as they should. It’s a bit light in the mouthfeel though, it could use a bit more body. Still worth a try for sure
