The Tickety Brew Co. Dubbel (6.5%)

DubbelLots of liquorice, lots of aniseed, Tickety Brew’s Dubbel is certainly much better than the Pale Ale I tried a week or two ago.
It’s a dark purple brown beer with a nice creamy head that quickly collapses under its own weight.
The smell is liquorice, cherry brandy and a hint of lavender.
The malting is deep, dark and chewy, full of aniseed balls, a little Marmite, bran rich biscuits and some mixed peppercorns.
The hops are autumnal, crunchy leaf litter, a little woody mulch, and then the liquorice and aniseed kicks back in, leading you to a slightly sweet and sticky finish.
Rather nice.
