From a 12 oz can:

Pours a brilliantly clear amber color, with a nice slightly off-white head, creamy and long lasting.

Wonderful dark fruit aromas, some burnt sugar, and hints of sweetness. Has a richness of aroma that makes it seem bigger than it is.

Slightly sweet raisin type flavors, a bit of peppery yeast phenolic character, and has a drying, peppery finish. The smooth dry finish invites more drinking, and makes it quite easy to drink for its strength.

Medium body and carbonation, no astringency. Just a slight hint of warming.

Was surprised I had never rated this beer before. A nice Belgian beer from my state, somewhat sneaky with its strength, and sold at a great price (at least in my area).

This strange concoction pours reddish amber with a magnificent craggy head and early lace. Fresh, sweet malt and solid opposing noble hops balance nicely.

A lot more yeast and malt makes itself apparent in the actual favor. Serious roasted malt follows to the finish but is checked by more hops than would normally be expected in the style. All wrapped in a boozy, Belgian haze.

On tap into a pint glass. A beautiful clear, copper color with a generous off-white head. Nice lacing in the glass. Serious bubblegum on the nose with caramel, banana, and cherries. The taste followed the nose. I get the bubblegum and banana with less of the classic Belgian character. Dry finish and quite enjoyable.

Can dated "best by 11/16/17" into pint glass. Pours a nice deep reddish amber-gold, with a persistent light tan head. Initial impression is rich, sweet malt with a hint of hops bitterness. Some caramel notes. Mouthfeel is smooth, medium-bodied with enough carbonation to keep it refreshing. Alcohol is well hidden. Somewhat dry, slightly bitter finish. I'm not a big fan of Belgians but this was good.

Pours more like a red than a brown but the foam and lacing are top notch. Btw, best by May 5th 2017 clearly stamped on the bottom of the can. Kudos to that.

Belgian yeast, candi sugar, some caramel and nuttiness in the smell.

Belgian yeast, bits of roasted malt, some bittersweet notes, a wee bit of butterscotch to my palate. This is really tasty.

Silky smooth mouthfeel.

Another very nice beer from this brewery; I reckon they have fun brewing Belgian style ales. Keep it up!

Drank from a 12 fluid oz. (355ml) can
Best by: 03/12/17
Served in a chalice
Thanks to my friend Bill (via his wife Lauren) for hooking me up with this beer.

Crystal clear crimson-mahogany appearance. The body was topped by a small, frothy, khaki colored crown that fell to a lasting dollop and a thin collar. Patchy, spotty lacing cascaded down the glass.

The nose was rather disappointing initially. Wet cardboard was quite apparent. Some stale, biscuity malts were noticeable as well. As the beer sat, the "off" notes disappeared and the aroma improved considerably. Belgian yeast notes came through strong. Loads of fruity esters. Slightly spicy. There was a fairly sweet, rich caramel malt presence. Somewhat phenolic. Bubblegum was also noticeable.

The stale cardboard notes were also initially present in the flavor profile, but they quickly dissipated. There was a rich maltiness on the front end. Somewhat bready. Bit of caramel. Super spicy in the center. Loads of clove, coriander and allspice. The finish contained a subtle earthy hop presence and was slightly bitter. Big spicy notes lingered after the swallow. For a 7% ABV beer, the alcohol was remarkably well hidden.

Awesome frothy, fluffy mouthfeel. Medium bodied for the style. The liquid contained an ultra fine and lively effervescence. Pillowy soft, plush and supple on the palate.

A Belgian Dubbel in a can? I think this might be a first for me. That said, this is a very tasty and well made abbey-style ale that struck me as being a rather authentic rendition of the style. Nicely done.

Can from JP’s Wine &Spirits. Clear ruby/amber with thick giant head that subsides. Musty, dusty aroma Not getting too many dubbel notes, minor brown sugar, yeast accents here and there, but kind of bland overall.

Poured 12oz can into glass. 7% abv

Appearance- Pours a earthy deep brown with a tint of red. Large finely bubbled head fast to dissipate. Very hazy

Smell- Prunes, fig, caramel

Taste- Has the dark fruit flavors. Mainly prune with a vinous touch of grape. Some banana as well. Still malty with a touch of caramel. A touch of clove that rounds out the many sweet notes of this beer in the finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium heavy in body with medium carbonation.

Overall- A great attempt at a dubbel. Smooth and captures the style appropriately.

My father brought back some cans of this beer from his trip to Baltimore. He said it was better on tap, but gave me a can to try. Overall, this is a very drinkable ale with nice malt character.

L: Pours a clear red-brown, with a two finger off-white head.

S: Smells a bit sweet and malty. Maybe a bit of dark fruit character, but not very strong.

T: Pretty well-balanced beer. Sweet and malty, with a bit of fruit (fig?) Not too sweet and not too bitter. I'm sure it would pair nicely with a variety of foods.

F: At 7%, you can definitely feel the bite of the booze as it sits in your mouth, but it isn't too abrasive. Not terrible.

Overall, a nice beer and I wouldn't mind drinking more of it. Cheers! ^ ^
