3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Poured deep, reddish, rust with an off-white head. While I did think this was a tasty brew, I thought it wasn’t very much to style. Big malt and roast, a little bit of caramel, cracked pepper, almonds, and little bit of alcohol flavors. Not so much with interesting yeast flavors to offer that Belgian-esq character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz from Fred Meyer. S.Salem.
Amber, clear ale with a thick,frothy light tan head.
Nice bready,cereal aromas from the malts, a bit doughy and earthy, some bubble gum actually quite pleasing.
Sweet malty /banan/bubble gum flavours dominate..gets dryer near the end of the mouthful.
OK palate thin side makes this drinkable.
Overall not a great Dubbel but i rather enjoyed it.

Opened at a party and many people with different favorite styles really enjoyed it. Nice funnel that doesn’t overwhelm. Pretty sparkly too. Really good malt taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: Pours a translucent copper with a vanishing head.
Aroma: Full sail house yeast, bread crust and a little bit of fruit, possibly pear.
Taste: Bitter bread crust, burnt sugar finishing with a fruity funky twang.
Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy.
Overall: A very bitter dubbel. Definitely different, and definitely has the Full Sail signature flavor going on.
