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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

After a nice dance with some other American-made Belgian style beers (New Belgium, Ommegang) I figured to take most BA's advice and check out Allagash. I went for the Dubbel, figuring it would be a nice mellow example of what the brewery can do.

This beer pours a tannish-red color with a monster fluffy head that got quite out of control. There were nice swaths of lacing on the glass, and there was a nice Belgian-sweetness on the nose.

I wasn't hugely into this Dubbel. It had a chocolate-bar sweetness with hints of spice and cinnamon. The beer has a thin mouthfeel, which was the most dissapointing part. Most Belgians have rich and hedonistic mouthfeels, but this one just didn't cut it. More like a watery-stout feel on the palate. I was also annoyed by the fact that this beer seems much bigger than it really is, coming in at a relatively mild 7%.

I'll keep trying this brewery's offerings, but for now I think i'll take a Ommegang if i'm drinking Belgian on a budget.

4.03/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz. bottle poured into a stemmed tulip.

(A)- Pours a clear cranberry red color with some mahogany shades. Minimal off-white froth but with good retention.

(S)- Lots of biscuit-like yeast. Plenty of bubblegum meets some dark fruits and banana at the end.

(T)- Very similar to the smell with a dry biscuity yeast meets some dark fruits, banana, and subtle bubblegum.

(M)- A good carbonation level. A slight grainy feel the the beer texture-wise, but tastes great and minimal bitterness.

(O)- Not many american brewers makes a great dubbel, but this one is one of the best I have had from the states.
