Notes/Commercial Description:
Allagash Dubbel boasts a deep red color and a complex malty taste. The finish is dry with subtle hints of chocolate and nuts. The yeast asserts itself by lending a classic Belgian fruitiness.

I just don't like this beer. Every bottle I've had tastes like rubber tires and disappointment. The drafts haven't been much better. I love Allagash but this beer makes me sad.

Thanks 302BeerGuy for this trade.

Appearance (4.25) : Has a creamy cap that's somewhere between beige and off-white. Three fingers is the number. Body is kind of a blood-orange to orange tint and 70% opacity. Nice lacing on the glass in rings.

Aroma (3.75) : Malty with some alcohol. Smell of discarded fruit rinds and some acorn. Slight wood, slight banana peel. Bouquet is weak to medium strength.

Taste (3.5) : A bit of sour and lightly metallic alcohol strikes the first blow, giving way to a wheaty bubble gum flavor on the finish. There's really only two sides to this coin. Very simple. Sour alcohol, bubble gum wheat.

After awhile the metallic notes really start coming out, and it becomes a drain pour, so drink this one COLD.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : Medium bodied, semi-creamy, mild carbonation, ends pasty on the tongue.

Overall (3.63) : Eh, it's okay. I wouldn't have it again unless there was nothing else available. It's an impressive ale, but nothing world class and nothing especially outstanding. Very simple but has a few too many metallic notes going on in the flavor profile.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a Chimay chalice at cellar temp.

Look: Turbid honeyed Ochre with a thin Beige head, scant lacing.

Smell: bruised fruits; overripe apples, peaches, raisins, sultanas

Taste:fruity like aroma with a touch of sage like bitterness

Feel: supple, slippery, smooth

overall: very good American Dubbel. I miss a strong Belgian yeast presence which holds this one back a little.
