22-ounce bottle pours a sparkling clear ruby -- gorgeous color -- with tan head and lacing that dissipates rapidly. Aroma: dried dark fruits, dark brown sugar, honey, raspberries, chocolate-covered cherries. Flavor: malt-forward with molasses, toffee and agave, along with figs, dates, raisins, prunes, cherries, strawberries, bananas, vanilla beans, black pepper. Mouthfeel: full-bodied, slick.

Bomber as a gift. Clear deep red body with a tall head. Though nice immediately out of the fridge, this gets amazing as it warms. Aromas of plums, dark cherry, soil, and chocolate waft from the glass. Palate is full, but still on the dryish side. Every thing is clean and direct. It’s delightfully fruity. Nice malty toffee balance with notes of sweet bread and chocolate. Spot on textbook dubbel.

snoworsummer (6071) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear reddish copper with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like dried fruits, candied malt, earth, and wood. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like dried fruits, candied malt, earth, wood, and banana.

Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2016
A rich, deep caramel/fudge nose. In the mouth it has a well-judged carbonation, it’s dry with a sticky fruit flavor, a bit more of that fudge. If there is a fault it’s definitely in the body, which is a touch thin. The beer is good but comes off a little shallow compared to it’s truly Belgian counterparts.

Reid (2626) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2015
22 oz bottle from Lifesource Natural Grocer. $7.99 Darker brown ale with a thick and tight bubbled creamy head. Aroma Mildly phenolic and slight pepper..earthy, some blackberry..OK Taste similar to the aroma..sweeter cocoa finish. OK mouth feel could use more carbonation. Nice beer but not a great dubbel
