Aubrey (3433) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Wholesome, malty, well-made brew. Smooth. Very pleasant from start to finish, and through the aftertaste. Toasty, raisiny and nutty. Some sweetness, but not overly sweet. Round yeast flavors and esters. Mild and fitting bitterness level balances things out. Enjoyable and cozy beer.

Drake (8601) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2010
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, opened 10/5/10. Pours a clear reddish amber with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of bread, raisins and faint caramel. The taste is toffee, brown sugar, raisins, spice and a faintly hoppy finish. Thin-medium bodied. Decent beer.

douglas88 (6042) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bomber at the bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma is very sweet nutty candies. A very sweet malty Belgian-style brew, not yeasty, but nutty, caramel and sweet candies. Nice.

brenn79 (1526) - Idaho, USA - OCT 22, 2010
22 oz. bottle- Pours ruby red to almost orange with a way too thin head, I poured this aggressively and a head didn’t even try to form, In fact if it weren’t for the nice colors the appearance would have gotten a 2, lacework is minimal as well. The flavor is somewhat grainy up front with a candy sugary taste after the swallow, some Belgian yeast and spice. Overall it almost has a bland lager feel to it with sweet sugar and some yeast, one of the worst dubbels that I’ve had. After the beer warmed the flavors did open up, the taste and palate goes up one notch a piece.

nearbeer (3745) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2010
22 oz. Clear, dark copper with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is spicy toasted nut with brown sugar. Flavor is the same with a sour twang, and a caramel cola and clove finish. Medium body is sweet, well-carbonated, and lightly astringent. There is some odd flavor in the last 3 Full Sails I have sampled (this one and 2 IPAs) that made them all taste the same, and it don’t really tickle my tastebuds.

notalush (4872) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bomber - a strong toffee and raisin sweetness start things off here, but this one is fairly balanced for the style (so many dubbels exhibit a rather one-dimensional sweetness) - smooth with a medium body - a bit of bitterness through the middle leads to a rather strong warming spiciness near the finish - mild floral notes and lingering hop bitterness - mild esters - a bit of straight up alcohol flavor manifest briefly in the finish, which is probably the one glaring flaw - still, I am enjoying it.

BrewDad (5002) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2010
22oz Bomber – Gravity Beer Market – Olympia, WA
Aroma – Nice malt aroma with light Belgian yeast coming off. Some spices and light hops also.
Appearance – Reddish Brown in color, Clear, with a thin head.
Flavor – Roasty dark malt flavor the yeast was light but there was fruit like flavors and finish.
Palate – Nice Dry finish with a Good Mouthfeel.
Overall – very nice beer.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Draught. Pours red brown with medium white head. Some lacing. Aroma is fruity, very fruity, like plums and raisins, spice and caramel. Medium to light body, caramel and toffee notes. Sweetish finish. A good beer, but not quite dubbely.
