John The One Eyed (Evil Czech)

This Belgian dubbel was served along side the main course at Evil Czech's Second Annual Stalin's Dark Side Release Feast.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This dark amber brew had a barely off-white bubbly head that settled into a thick bubble ring. It smelled like candied sugar and fruity yeast.

Taste: The bready and dark fruity yeast flavors came though. It was sugary. It had a lighter consistency than I was expecting.

From the Evil Czech site:
Just like his namesake, John is a true warrior who has had his sweetness tempered out by a walk through fire. John is brewed with raisins, which turns his amber color into more of a thousand yard stare, while he hits you in the nose with the scent of banana and brandy. Even John’s sugar hints are hardcore, complimented with Belgian yeasts.

**After reading their description, I wonder if some of that yeasty fruit was the raisins it was brewed with.
