Having visited CzigMeister in Hackettstown on occasion, and having done a story on the brewery, I expected quality from this 6.4% Belgian Dubbel. And I got it. First, the color was stunning...a pristine deep, dark ruby red that might be hypnotic in front of a roaring fire. Second, the nose was fascinating with various notes typical of the style. Malt, as is expected, was the star here, but layers of flavors came through on the palate; bread, cherry, caramel and dark fruit. Mouthfeel was perfect, clean and easy-drinking. Its low ABV makes this a definite late-fall, winter session beer that would likely be an excellent accompaniment to many foods, including strong cheeses, game meat and fowl, including chicken, turkey and especially duck. No question: this beer should be at either your holiday table, your fireside--or both.

DATE: December 25, 2017... OCCASION: Christmas growler with the bros... GLASSWARE: Hobgoblin straight pint... dark ruby red body that prevents much light from passing through... the head is dirty-white, flourishing with a half-finger cloud of bubbles... caramel, tea, cherry, light resin and hedgerow, thick dough and slight medicinal strains... medium body, reasonable weight, a dry finish and a textured start.... the flavor is big on caramel and bread malts, with cherry cola, pine, raspberry and stone fruit striking something of a balance... a beer that befits a holiday--drinkable but worthy of sipping, strong enough to partner with a variety of meats and cheeses but not sending you to an early end...
