3.65/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - poured a pillowy white head that slowly subsided to half a finger which lasted throughout. Sticky thick lacing coated the side of the glass with a golden yellow hue that was so hazy it was nearly impenetrable.

S - a funky yeast smell in the first waft followed by some floral hops. Notes of sweet malt, bread and a hint of citrus are present. The smell did die down significantly as it opened up.

T - This is where this one fell flat. The taste simply did not follow up the smell with much. It had an off pale malt taste with a floral hops flavor that did little to balance the malt. Some bread and some citrus detected but does little to pull it together.

M - The carbonation was a light to medium (expected more) with a medium body. Slightly bitter back end and somehwat dry.

O - although I was not a big fan of the Nobel Pilsener,I was sucked in by the "Double hopped" on the side of the bottle (it pains me but no one uses hops bettter than americans (belgians included)) however with my first sip I was somewhat disappointed. The funky yeast scent also sucked me in but there was just not enough in the taste to make this a top notch beer. That being said, overall it was certainly not bad and is more than drinkable, but I will not seek it out again if presented with better options.

3.36/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A-Pours a nice cloudy gold. Long lasting 1/2 inch head.

S-kind of a yeasty smell with very little hop character coming through.

T-Sort of a smooth sourish taste with a silky bitterness rounding out the mouthfulj.

M-Mouthfeel is weaker than abv would suggest.

D-Very drinkable which may be bad considering the higher than normal abv.

Good brew and I will buy it again.

Drinkability - This is a double hopped dubble. While not my personal favourite to deviate on this style, this is an interesting and drinkable beer that's somewhat refreshing. I'd probably have another.

Appearance - A hazy orange gold with a thin head. Little lacing.

Smell - sweet candy malt with grassy/floral hops, phenols and orange citrus.

Taste - Still somewhat true to form, this is a rich malty beer with some phenolic and mild alcohol notes. As expected it lacks the fruit flavours found in the Belgian Strong Dark Ale but, differently, replaced them with leafy and grassy ones through double hopping instead. There's a mild hop bitterness with some lingering hop flavors. There are also some mild metallic and caramel flavors from the crystal malt/dark candy sugar.

Mouthfeel - medium body with good carbonation. Smooth with a watery texture and a light buttery finish.

3.82/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Murky gold/amber color. Poured a 1 finger bubbly white head with rair retention. Thin, inconsistent lacing slowly washed down the glass.

S: Sweet, bready malts, flavoring hops. Citrus bite.

T: Big floury malts that were slightly sweet. Floral hop taste coats the mouth and tongue transitioning to a peppery/citrus hop finish. Very flavorful and somewhat complex, but nicely blaanced taste.

M: Medium body. Balanced carbonation made it really smooth and allowed the flavors to linger briefly ahead of the bitter finish.

D: Very tasty balanced beer. Didn't start out like much. Perhaps resting the bottle more carefully may keep sediment from stirring too much.
