3.7/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Mahogany brown to reddish with a one finger head that dissipated a little fast, nice lacing, with good carbonation
Softer aroma than expected, some hints of dark fruits, plums and prunes, figs, not much in way of spices, a little biscuit like
More cocoa than chocolate, with a little nut flavor, not as pronounced as a nut brown ale, but similar, definitely the American side of this attempt at a Dubbel
Very smooth and full mount feel, with a little alcohol at the finish, I may have had my temperature in the fridge a little too cold for this one. That being said, perfect amount of carbonation.
Overall, not my favorite from Allagash, but it is a decent American attempt that deserves a look from us. I really think that Allagash does a good job at not only representing this type, but capturing the whole spectrum of Belgian ales. An above average ale, no shame in serving this or ordering. I will go back again. A very nice break from the dozen or so IPAs you will run across tonight.

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.
