Thanks to Ashley for sharing this at Oneinchaway's tasting.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, dark fruit, and sugar aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet malt and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid aromas and flavors for an American take on the style.

A little strange, but quite enjoyable. Why this one is listed as a dubbel is not clear to me. I would think it was more of a brown ale, albeit slightly hoppy, and slightly more carbonated than typical.

Flavor and aroma were nice, brown sugar, dark fruits, a little bit of yeast, and some floral hops. With a good smooth, medium body, I found this beer quite enjoyable and would certainly buy it again.
