reebtogi (5471) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2012
650ml bomber bottle pours a deep amber color with finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light chocolate with some dark pitted fruits and light yeasty notes. Taste is chocolate malt and dark fruity sweetness with a mild hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation providing a pleasant sensation on the palate. A pretty nice brew for the style and recommended to sample.

(22oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear medium brown, offwhite bubbled head around the edges. Nose of toasty raisins, cream, banana peel, corn. Taste of raisin, toasty, not very sweet, rum, not super interesting either.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bomber. Pours a murky reddish dark brown color with a thin cap of off-white foam. The aroma is a mix of banana bread, burnt caramel, fig and Belgian yeast. Lots of dark fruit and caramelized sugar sweetness in the taste along with some clove, chocolate and cinnamon notes. Also a strong bready malt presence throughout. The body is slightly thick and creamy with soft carbonation while the finish is dry and malty with a subtle alcohol kick. Overall, a solid interpretation of the style that could use a little more active carbonation and complexity.

This tastes just fine, it just tastes nothing like a Dubbel. Brown, but completely transparent and if tasted blind, I would swear it was Shiner Bock. Shiner Bock isnít objectionable, but it isnít a Dubbel.
