Impressive dubbel on tap at Steamworks

A good Belgian-style beer is a wonder to behold, and Steamworks Brewing Co. has tapped one.
Steamworks has D'Deuce Dubbel on tap. It comes in at approximately 7 percent alcohol and 20 IBUs (I lost my notes and the figures come from memory, but they're about right).

It pours a dark amber with a small but persistent head of foam. It comes in a little 10-ounce glass for $4.

D'Deuce has a very nice balance and yeast character. Some Belgians go way too far on banana esters, or sweetness, but this is just a really solid dubbel.

If you like Belgians at all, this is a good one to try.

  1. Completely agree! I tried this on Friday, and it is one of the better dubbel's that I've tried!
