Pours a dark red color with a very small white head and no lacing. Aromas are caramel, bread, and yeast. The taste is mostly biscuit and caramel. It’s also a little metallic and not very refreshing. When I picture a belgian dubbel I want something high in alcohol but very easy to drink and very complex. This is a simple beer with little complexity and a watery mouth-feel. I can drink it but it’s boring. thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2012
22oz bottle: Appearance is a dark brown with slow fading creamy off white head. Aroma is just slightly grainy. Taste is slightly Belgian with notes of spices some orange and Belgian yeast and finishes with some floral hops. Decent but an obvious impostor. mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Rich malt aromas followed by the flavors of biscuit and roast that are rounded by a rich sweet malt character. With a light chewy finish. gpekar (497) - Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Poured a cloudy, orange tinted, medium amber with a thin tan head that dropped to just a film rather quickly. The aroma was mild with primarily sweet roasted malts and dark brown sugar. There was some raisin and dried dark fruits. The beer had a light creamy texture and good carbonation that lead to a light tart, crisp taste. There was good caramel malt sweetness and a hint of chocolate. The finish was mellow with a nice alcohol warmth Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2010
22 oz bottle - I don’t drink a lot of Belgians, so I’m not sure what they are supposed to smell like. This one has a pleasant enough aroma. Orange with a white head. Roast flavor with a sweet aftertaste. I’m not a huge fan of the style, but I do like this beer.

22 oz. bottle dated 2011, "enjoy by" date was about three years ago. Pours ruby red amber with a nice off white head that retains and leaves lacing. Aroma is of sweet malt, earth, dark bread, cocoa, leather, and slight mineral/metal. Taste is dry and somewhat sour, seems to be lacking something. Has a chocolate and vanilla thing going on with the biscuit and tartness which is quite unique but not something I want to revisit very often. Kind of watery with a light/medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation, and dry finish. Has a light feel in the mouth for being 7% abv. Pretty mediocre for a Belgian Dubbel. dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Pours copper with a medium off white head and good retention. Aroma of Belgian yeast and malts with mild solvent notes. Bready fruits as it warmed. Flavor is much the same minus the solvent. Mild spiciness and Belgian funk. Little bit of tang on the back end. I always buy Full Sail products, and they are always respectable, but they always leave me wanting. Same here. Wish there was more to it.

This beer is too much soda like, cola in particular. Full Sail is nothing special from experience. scotchzi (302) - Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Pour is a very hazy deep copper with a decent quickly disappearing white head. Smell is heavy clover banana and brown sugar. Taste is clove white pepper tropical fruits oatmeal syrup bananas. Decent taste no lingering mouthfeel. mensch (289) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Bright copper-brown colored, very thin head. Mild aroma of candied apricots. Medium bodied - well attenuated - in a more authentically belgian way than other american examples of the style. Very drinkable, but lacking the malt complexity or big punch of flavor needed to rate it higher.
