From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter via Zid----Cheers!
This very nice ale pours a lightly cloudy burnt orange with a solid
head of off white foam that settles to a thick big bubbled ring, thin pool,
and shows some excellent lacing. Nose of toasted malts, light brown sugars,
light earthy yeast, light biscuit, and subtle citrus fruit notes. Flavors exceed the nose
with a mild orange zest surrounded in breaded malts and biscuit that are lightly dashed
with brown sugar and earthy yeast that mingles with light raisin and grape notes. Excellent
mouth feel; medium body, medium carbonation, and a lightly sweet and subtly dry finish with
a slight herbal hop note on the back.

Miss this one in the area----it is a solid brew from a great brewery that has
been missing for about 12 years or so.

Thanks again Zid!

Cheers

This has always been poured into a chalice. The appearance was a nice dark hazy brown color with a thin one finger white foamy head that dissipates within about a minute and leaves some light somewhat foamy lacing. The smell started off with a light Belgian spice, bready yeastiness, light apples and then slightly shifts towards an earthy raisin quality. The taste was sweet and spicy through the previously mentioned flavors. It left a long lingering sweet and spicy aftertaste which lead to the finish. On the palate, this one sat at/about a medium in body. There was a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still not bad for the style. Overall, I say this was a good Dubbel. The best thing about it was the smell as it had a lot going on with it.

Traditional optics. The nose and the tongue are a tad too phenolic in a medicinal way - fairly bitter with a black anise flavor, which doesn't marry with the caramel malt or yeast. Really didn't pick-up any dark fruit or other flavors you usually see to balance the style.

slightly hazy dark reddish with a two finger light tan head. Fabulous retention and moderate lacing. Sweet on the nose, with overtones of dough, brown sugar, and malts. Taste is bold and robust, highlighting the caramely malts with a peppery backbone.

85/100
