    Anyone have some yet? It's been out a whole day now! Initial thoughts?

    I have not yet. Not sure whether to rush out or not - I have a lot of beers that deserve to be drank fresh at the moment.

    Passed on it yesterday. Hope that wasn't a mistake but it's not my favourite style.

    Had it today. I usually love Driftwood but this fell flat in my eyes. I'm not a big fan of the style either, but it still doesn't hold up to other Dubbels I've had.

    Was tasty enough but nothing spectacular. Not sure i've ever had a spectacular dubbel though.

    I'd imagine this will be quite similar to end of reason by gigantic.. nice to see local brewies tackling more belgian styles, it's a nice change of pace. Now I just need someone to make me a good rauchbier. (had big smoke, smoke and mirrors, i know cc made one...) Too rare of a style in these parts.

    I love me a good Rauchbier also. No local brewery does it here but we get the Schlenkerla so at least that :D
