Very Good
Notes: Brewery made candi sugar adds rich toffee flavors with a hints of fig and raisins. Enjoy with game, roast meats and campfires.

4.21/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Decanted from an 16.9 oz (500 ml), caged and corked bottle into a snifter; released and purchase in 2020.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, copper with ochre highlights. Robust, wheat colored head formation with a two finger head, but rim retention and little prolonged lacing.
S: Tart/tangy nose. Aromas of cherry wood, cocoa, banana and caramel (not quite molasses) predominate.
T: Sweet and tart, subtly on both counts. Caramel, more banana, cherry wood and toast definitely predominate. I m picking up raisin, fig, and molasses notes. Bitterness entirely in balance.
M: Medium bodied with robust carbonation throughout the consumption. Clean finishing with pleasantly sweet aftertaste.
O: A delicious Dubbel. Complex, subtle, fun: dare I say highly drinkable. Glad I had it for Thanksgiving 2020.

The beer comes in a dark amber ruby color.

The beer offers candied fruits with figs, dates, a rich malty sweetness, with mostly fruit esters dominating. There’s a medium plus carbonation with a smooth medium body. An exceptional American made Belgian style. It hits targets of maltiness, mouthfeel, and dark fruit without being overly spicy or unbalanced.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is hazy dark amber in color. It poured with a bit of lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Very faint aromas of dark fruits are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of malts along with notes of Belgian yeast and dark fruits.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: There's no aromas or flavors in this dubbel that make it stand out compared to other beers in the style.

Serving type: on-tap
