This brew is the culmination of all things great in beer!

A - Pours dark crystal with a volcanic head - looks like it should be sitting in a museum display case

S - Raisins, chocolate, port, perfecly balanced sweet and sour notes that are so well blended yet independantly defined

T - All components of this beer are orchestrated so well together that it creates a taste that never leaves your tongue - never

M - Awesome carbonation with a little warmth from the alcohol

D - Keep em coming!

In my opinion this is what every beer should be. Simple yet complex, highly drinkable, and oh so satisfying! There is not much better out there.

This beer pours a very dark coffee color with a tan head, two finger-widths high. Tons of lacing with this beer.

The beer presents a very complex bouquet with aromas of rich malt, chocolate, raisin, and oak.

The initial taste presents the rich malty flavor, and then it immediately warms to present the hints of chocolate and then some sweetness of the alcohol followed by the raisin. The beer finishes with a deep smokey flavor as it warms on the tongue.

The mouthfeel is heavy at first, but gives way to a crisp finish as the alcohol warms on the tongue.

Overall, this is a great example of the dubbel style that will not disappoint you.

A very drinkable belgian dubble, Smells like chocolate covered cherries. Has a dark brownish red color with a thick tan head. Taste is very strong of chocolate covered cherries. This beer is oh so smooth and thick. This beer is undeniably drinkable. 1 could pick up a bottle and drink it all evening while enjoying sitting in front of the fire or watching something on AMC or TCM

Again terrible review, port flavors, very grapy, a bunch of raisin, and a complexity that is unmatched, beautiful and amazingly delicious, next time I have something good to smoke this may be on the top of my list. Can't wait to make some money, this will be the first expensive 4-pack I'll go after, can not say enough. Best tasting brown ale that I have had to date.
