The ninth beer in Howe Sound Brewing Company’s Sea to Sky Series is their Belgian Dubbel.  The beer pours from the bomber bottle a clear mahogany brown with half a finger of light brown head that leaves some trace lacing behind in the glass.  Aromas of rich malts and dark fruits come off the glass, accompanied by notes of figs, plums, and sweet toffee.  In the mouth the flavour is of plum, figs, and some mild toffee and roasted tones.  These rich flavours are accompanied by subtle yeast esters and a light but bitter finish.
