22oz from the brewery. Poured into St. Bernardus tasting glass. Long lasting head, really sticks around forever, Ruby brown color, cannot see through it. I was happy with the first smell being not super estry or sweet, thank goodness. As I keep drinking I actually like the beer, which is a surprise for a brewery like G’town and this style. Aroma is very grainy/buckwheat, which I love when I get in beers. Very earthy and not sweet, no fruit esters to speak of. A medium body that is broken up by a lightly vigorous carbonation. The beer finishes light on the palate. Flavor is similar not sweet or estry yet totally Belgian. Nicely grainy malt. Really surprising and highly appreciated. I think I’ll buy another bottle.

Bomber shared by Eugene - nose of toffee, dusty, musty yeast character, some mildly spicy phenolics, a bit of muskiness - flavor is not overly sweet - some toffee and toasty dark bread - balancing acidity through the middle - a bit of raisin, light earthy phenolics - finish of toasted nuts, light dark fruit, and caramelized sugars, baked apples - surprisingly good.

Bottle. Dark pour with a sweet aroma. Malty start and finish. Very sweet overall, but not too sweet. A little bready. Very good Belgian style beer.

Mahogany body with a decent head. Traditional amber malted body, exuding whiffs of caraMunich. The protypical "dubbel" nose. The body as well exudes the typical Dubbel characertistics. Mellowed amber malting, some brown sugar notes. Fairly clean as far as esters and phenols are concerned. It hits all the right notes, but lacks a certain depth that could take it to the next level--perhaps it will gain this attribute with aging. Solid.

Bottle:   Deep burnt brown sugar in color, huge frothy beige head, spotty lacing.   Sweet bready nose, slightly candyish, with some minor dark pitted fruit.   No funk or basement/mustiness.   Moderately sweet fruitiness, but its not all dark pitted fruit.   Its like half and half, pale fruit vs dark fruit.   Thankfully not real heavy in its breadiness.   Fairly smooth and clean, with lots of lingering sweetness.   Could stand to be a bit bigger in body, despite it being fairly smooth.   Soft sweetened golden raisin and dates on the finish.   A little different, but also very unique.   Enjoyable, if not what I was expecting.   Thanks for the bottle Ron!

Draft at Belgianfest. Poured dark brown, moderate beige head. Aroma is richly malty with the belgian yeast noticable. Flavor is straightforwardly bready and malty with a bit of molasses and a spicy yeast finish. Slightly thin feeling. Nothing exciting, but nothing bad.
