3.68/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured a dark brown with ruby highlights into my Corsendonk goblet, leaving a minimal head and little residual lacing. Very opaque with a little haze.

Smell is excellent - earthy with a distinct coffee and chocolate tone. Really sets me up to take that first sip.

Taste follows smell very closely and is coffee and chocolate. Really very pleasant.

Mouthfeel is smooth and heavy and creamy but not oily. Finishes very clean.

Drinkability is the only drawback here. At this ABV you aren't going to want more than two of these boys.

An outstanding offering from Allagash.

Bottle from Harvest Market
Lightly hazy brownish amber color with a decent sized off white head that dissipates rather quickly. Brown sugar, clove, and pepper yeasty esters dominate the aroma. Hints of dark dried fruits round out the nose. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Nice light easy drinking dubbel.

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

Pours a deep cloudy amber with a nice rich head. Inviting. Smells like sweet caramel malts with just a hint of alcohol to bite the nose. Tastes rich with sweet biscuity malts, clove, and a little lemon bite in the finish. Mouthfeel is pleasant and resinous on the tongue. Overall, enjoyed this brew and would buy again.

3.94/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a dark amber color with a small, but persistent head.
Aroma is Belgian spice, yeasty, dark fruit, and malt.

Taste begins with a strong malt presence which is followed by dark fruit/yeast and a subtle touch of sweetness at the end that blends with the bitterness very nicely. Picking up on hints of chocolate, molasses, and a definite roasted nut flavor. It finishes dry and has a high carbonation level.

Overall, a very nice Belgian dubbel.
