A fairly fruity aroma. Looks good. This is a very smooth dubbel. Not a lot of spice; just a hint. Pretty tasty.

BritAlesRule (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Nice dark copper brown with quickly dissipating head. Nose is malt and dark fruits. Taste is a little woody with boozy chocolate and more darker fruits like overripe cherries and plums. Medium-heavy mouthfeel. Black bread and very mild hop finish.

joeneugs (3242) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Pours a reddish amber color with a rather small fizzy orange head. The aroma is full of dried fruit with plums, apples, pears, and mild spices. The flavor is very fruity with some pepper and spicy yeast in the finish. Almost a sweet and sour thing going on with the fruit profile. An ok dubbel.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Pours a nice copper caramel color with a slightly off white sticky head. Aroma is nuts, caramel, malts, touch of spices and yeasts. Flavor is caramel, nuts, touch of spices, a hnint of belgian yeasts, not overly sweet like many dubbels and very easy to drink. Extremely quaffable, but not as robust as I expected from the Belgian Dubbel style. Nice brew.

badgerben (4400) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Dark cherry color with a small head. Aroma of caramel malt and light bread. Light malt and bitterness flavor. Noticeably a Noble hop. No yeast character.

Butters (3764) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 4, 2010
Im gonna go a bit against the grain on this one, and say that I really liked this damn thing! Bomber pours a beautiful clear chestnut with ring of offwhite head. Sweet, fairly typical dubbel profile, but much thinner, and flatter than an authentic belgian would be. Raisin, brown sugar, anise, caramel, very pleasing. Good brew, good price.

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 4, 2010
22 ounce bottle purchased at the Woodland Nugget. Aroma is minerally, with plenty of sweet, sugary, candy notes. Light dustiness and a bit of yeast ester comes through. Pretty straight forward. Transparent orange body with a small, weak off yellow head. Starts sugary, cloying, and very sweet. Has a little roastiness in the middle with some bubblegummy yeast flavors towards the end. Some toasted malts are also in there. This is underattenuated and just sort of a mess. Laughable try at a dubbel. Id expect this out of an inexperienced homebrewer.

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Nice crisp, slightly hazy, copper tinted, ruby highlighted, deep amber body - a very nice looking colour with a thin tan head. Aroma of rich malt, light nuts, caramel, alcohol and a touch of cherries and oak. Medium-bodied; Assertive malt character in the flavour with a sweet cherry and pit fruit flavour and a drying oak and nutty flavour afterwards with a light alcohol pungency as well. Aftertaste is mild, not very complex, mainly showing the malt and some caramel and toffee sweetness. Overall, a decent dubbel, not a great example, but not a horrible representation either. A decent, american (should be mentioned) version of the classic belgie. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Alexandria (Old Town), Virginia on 27-October-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 03-November-2010.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Ill echo the comments of many in saying that this is a perfectly drinkable beer but is quite unremarkable as a dubbel, providing some malt sweetness but in nowhere near the rounded, robust dimensions that you can get very commonly from the dubbels. And, given that there are so many fine examples--and that we know that Full Sail is capable of great things--this is a real disappointment. Bottle.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Pours clear orange amber with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of cereal grain and fruit. taste is pretty mild, not as much Belgian yeast as expected or flavor in general. Not bad, just lacking.
