Holgate Double Trouble

Holgate Brewhouse

Released October 18th, 2010

Another of Holgate's beers to have undergone something of a tweak for 2010 (see the Mount Macedon and Hopinator for other examples), the new Double Trouble is causing trouble at the brewery - the brewers can't stop drinking it... A Belgian Abbey style Dubbel, it's all about richness of flavour: intense dark fruit, toffee and dark rum characteristics that make it a good match for sweet desserts or cheese platters. Paul Holgate says to look out for the October 2010 date on bottles if you're after this year's vintage. That said, Crafty remembers finding an earlier version thought long gone at the back of the cupboard a while back and discovering it tasted even better than when fresh. EDIT 2010's vintage uses a special Weyermann Abbey Malt and a load of Belgian candi sugar, making it a whole lot sweeter and adding some lighter fruit notes too. Hard to believe it's the strength it is.
