Description: As part of their Unique Brew Limited Edition Small Batch series, this beer is available only in Boston Rounds and only for a limited time. A Belgian-style Dubbel, this beer is fermented using Belgian yeasts to create a rich, dark, malt-forward ale.

Tasting Notes: It’s been awhile since I’ve had anything from Whistler and I was pleasantly surprised to see some limited edition Boston Rounds at my local store. And this beer was good as Dubbels go, with plenty of the rich, sweet malt characteristics of this Belgian style. Brown sugar, molasses, and dark fruits combine with a slight tang and some alcoholic warmth that made me smile.

Appearance: Dark brown/amber, translucent, good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Strong malt, brown sugar, molasses, raisins, dates, alcohol
Taste: Rich malt, hint of brown sugar, mineral tang, raisins, dates, alcohol
Aftertaste: Lingering mineral tang, alcoholic bite and warmth
Overall: 8.5/10
