Brother David's Double. This is a double Belgian abbey style ale which was, quite deservedly, the winner of the 2011 Great American Beer Festival's Gold Medal.
It pours a deep reddish brown color, bordering on black. The tan head is reasonably thick and foamy.
The typical Belgian spiciness is a dominant flavor, along with rich caramel sweetness and virtually no hops bitterness. The 9% alcohol content lends a warmth to it as it goes down. For my taste, this is a nearly perfect beer.
The Beer Advocate folks completely disagree with me on this one, though. The editors rate it a 78, or merely average. The visitors are only slightly more generous, giving it an 81 or "good" rating. This is one of those cases where I respectfully disagree with them.
I tried this at The Winking Lizard Tavern on Bethel Road back in 2012, but haven't seen it for sale in Columbus yet.
My rating: 10/10
