#12beersofxmas #day8

Beer : Dubbel Fisted

Style : Belgian Dubbel

Brewery : Iron Fist Brewing

ABV : 8.1%


Hurtling towards the finishing line of this years 12beers shenanigans and it’s been the best so far in my opinion already…good work people !

Tonight’s beer is a bit of a strange one …it’s from the Iron Fist Brewery.a family owned brewery from California and billed as a Belgian style Dubbel (is there any other kind?) with a Californian twist coming in at 8.1%.

It pours a lovely rich red/amber colour with a slight creamy head that dissapates quickly with a slightly sweet aroma.

It’s a little belgiany,a little sweet with a little spice on the finish and therein lies the problem…it’s an enjoyable drink (and just as well as its a big 750ml bottle) but it’s not one thing or another and slightly fails short because of that.
