Bellwoods Brewery-Toil and Trouble

Toil and Trouble is the Bellwoods Brewery's rendition of a Belgian dubbel. It's a very robust beer with a wallop of booze at 8.7%. It's a dark, reddish brown colour topped with a whisper of creamy head. The aroma is malt-heavy and has considerable yeastiness and a dose of dark fruit. The flavour is malt-forward with some fruit sweetness. Possibly plum? Also, there's just a hint of chocolate at the back end.
Toil and Trouble is definitely a slow sipping beer. It's very satisfying and extremely rich. A pretty fair Toronto version of dubbel. One well worth trying.

Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
