3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet dark malts and candy sugar in the nose. Clear dark copper-brown body is topped by a low tan head that recedes to a lasting cover with some lace. Bubblegum esters are quite strong and the malt profile is very sweet. Banana flavourful lingers along with some spicy hops in the finish. Medium body seems a bit light and somewhat under-carbonated. Overly sweet for me and just not coming together well. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at Toby’s in May 2013.
Bottle from Todd’s cellar, thanks mate! Cloudy brown, low tan lace. Candisugar and spice nose. Medium-lightbody, dried out a bit it seems, light sparkly mouthfeel. Berries, sugar, wood, a bit oxidized, nice lightfooted hop profile to round it off. Quite lightfooted and drinkable actually. Pleasant. fiulijn (20493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014

Hazy brown color with medium sized head. Light malt aroma. Lean body, lightly sweet caramel flavor and very low bitterness.
Slighty hazy rusty brown with a decent pale head. Aroma is pineapple, brown sugar, dates, raisins, toffee. Medium-full bodied, slightly sticky mouthfeel, sweet and malty on the palate with a subtle balancing bitterness in the background. Taste is raisins, dates, toffee, chocolate, candi sugar, Belgian yeast. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
But brown with a big foamy off whte head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and caramel. Lots of toffee, quite a bit of a raisin or other dried fruit. A nice, simple dubbel, ummm ok Lagerboy (2206) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2013
Bomber. Clear deep amber, fading foamy tan head. Big sugar sweet malt aroma and taste, some dark fruitiness and a hint of yeast, no bitterness. Soft carbonation, light-medium body, low hopped. A flat cola-ish, vinous, cloying dubbel bubblegum flavor emerges as it warms... sadly, the final third is a drainpour. Disappointing effort from Driftwood. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Consistent with style but light. Floral hops, sweet malt. Pours clear mahogany with lacing and good head. Light on palate, finishes a little sweet. Bottle. Johnsense (1669) - - JUL 10, 2013
Brown pour, lots of head. Sweet aroma, prunes and fig. Sweet tasting, Toasted malt, raison, prune, yeast and lots of toffee. Nothing off but nothing remarkable either. Sammy (12201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Hits the style though unexceptional. Drinkable though very sweet forward. Lacy, some orange coloured body. Nothing complex.Josh L bottle. Ferris (15272) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle - Malt, brown sugar, raisins and a bit of yeast. Bubbly brown head with a clear dark mahogany hue. Toasted malts, prunes, some yeast and a clean dry finish. Very simple and light, not bad. pictoman (1128) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
Poured from the tap. Clear reddish brown with full beige head. Malt and belgian yeast aroma with just hints of dark fruit. Taste of sweet toffee, only hints of a traditional dubble. Very simple body.
