Ruddy amber beer, thin head, sparkling. Big chewy biscuit nose with tinges of floral hop and alcohol. Pleasant. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet, fruity taste. Lively, well-attenuated, and dry. No silly esters. Very well done.

Bottle. Copper pour with a short, tan head. Nose is spicy with sweet malt, light cocoa, and dark fruit. Taste is sweet dark malts, cocoa, subtle spices, dark fruit, Belgian yeast and light flowery notes. Body is medium-full with a chewy feel and a creamy carbonation. Finishes with more sweet malts, ripe, dark fruits, cocoa, soft spices, powdery Belgian yeast and candied notes.

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.

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.
