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

Pours a hazed copper edged medium brown, one finger of dense white foam, spray of lace down the glass. Smell: faint caramel apple, nutty, crusty bread note. Taste: pear, caramel, allspice, mildly spicy with orange and mint notes. Sticky and spiced finish. Nose is really sparse and overall it's mediocre.

22 oz. bomber poured into a pint glass

L: Pours a reddish-copper color, with a 1-finger off-white head and good lacing.

S: Moderate nose with yeast and malt presence.

T/F: Nicely balanced flavor, with some fruit, nut and chocolate overtones and solid malt presence, which adds some sweetness. Smooth finish with a moderate amount of carbonation.

O: A little maltier than other dubbel's I've tried, but overall a very nice beer.
