Ill echo the comments of many in saying that this is a perfectly drinkable beer but is quite unremarkable as a dubbel, providing some malt sweetness but in nowhere near the rounded, robust dimensions that you can get very commonly from the dubbels. And, given that there are so many fine examples--and that we know that Full Sail is capable of great things--this is a real disappointment. Bottle.

Pours clear orange amber with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of cereal grain and fruit. taste is pretty mild, not as much Belgian yeast as expected or flavor in general. Not bad, just lacking.

Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Wholesome, malty, well-made brew. Smooth. Very pleasant from start to finish, and through the aftertaste. Toasty, raisiny and nutty. Some sweetness, but not overly sweet. Round yeast flavors and esters. Mild and fitting bitterness level balances things out. Enjoyable and cozy beer.

Drake (13303) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2010
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA, opened 10/5/10. Pours a clear reddish amber with a thin head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of bread, raisins and faint caramel. The taste is toffee, brown sugar, raisins, spice and a faintly hoppy finish. Thin-medium bodied. Decent beer.

douglas88 (8942) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Bomber at the bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma is very sweet nutty candies. A very sweet malty Belgian-style brew, not yeasty, but nutty, caramel and sweet candies. Nice.

Beerdrinker79 (2175) - Idaho, USA - OCT 22, 2010
22 oz. bottle- Pours ruby red to almost orange with a way too thin head, I poured this aggressively and a head didnt even try to form, In fact if it werent for the nice colors the appearance would have gotten a 2, lacework is minimal as well. The flavor is somewhat grainy up front with a candy sugary taste after the swallow, some Belgian yeast and spice. Overall it almost has a bland lager feel to it with sweet sugar and some yeast, one of the worst dubbels that Ive had. After the beer warmed the flavors did open up, the taste and palate goes up one notch a piece.

nearbeer (5236) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2010
22 oz. Clear, dark copper with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is spicy toasted nut with brown sugar. Flavor is the same with a sour twang, and a caramel cola and clove finish. Medium body is sweet, well-carbonated, and lightly astringent. There is some odd flavor in the last 3 Full Sails I have sampled (this one and 2 IPAs) that made them all taste the same, and it dont really tickle my tastebuds.

notalush (5837) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bomber - a strong toffee and raisin sweetness start things off here, but this one is fairly balanced for the style (so many dubbels exhibit a rather one-dimensional sweetness) - smooth with a medium body - a bit of bitterness through the middle leads to a rather strong warming spiciness near the finish - mild floral notes and lingering hop bitterness - mild esters - a bit of straight up alcohol flavor manifest briefly in the finish, which is probably the one glaring flaw - still, I am enjoying it.

Aroma Nice malt aroma with light Belgian yeast coming off. Some spices and light hops also.
Appearance Reddish Brown in color, Clear, with a thin head.
Flavor Roasty dark malt flavor the yeast was light but there was fruit like flavors and finish.
Palate Nice Dry finish with a Good Mouthfeel.
Overall very nice beer.
