Anderson Valley Brother David's Double
I picked up a bottle of Anderson Valley Brother David's Double on my last visit to New Jersey. The beer has a brown color with a lofty and bubbly tan head. The aroma is filled with raisins, sweet malts, and a light alcohol bite. The taste is very sweet and creamy on the front end with fig and raisins. The beer finishes with a light alcohol bite and hop bitterness. The alcohol content is 9.0% ABV. I thought that Brother David's Double was a very excellent double. The alcohol is mostly well hidden, but is there enough to remind you that you are drinking a Belgian double.
