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.

Poured into a Goblet from waitress Dorsey at the Gingerman in Midtown Manhattan.

A: Dark amber with a minor head yet retained legs quite well throughout.

S/T: Quite hoppy for my pallet but not overpowering for those who like 'em.

M: Average with medium carbonation.

D: Got better and smoother as it warmed up from teh inital hoppiness. would not go back for this one but would recommend to pale ale blokes.

Part of NEPA BC split #6.

Twist off bottle pours a mud brown/deep copper color with only about one finger of off-white head. Leaves a decent lace around the glass and some stick, and has decent clarity.

Smell is fresh bread, yeast, raisins and some malty sweetness. Taste is of sweet malts and candi sugar, along with raisin and a nuttiness toward the back end. Yeast flavor really comes through in the finish, and the aftertaste is dry and a little funky from the yeast. It's pretty light in the mouth for a beer over 7% and the carbonation tingles the tongue a bit.

Overall it's a good, if somewhat pedestrian double. Not a bad option to have hanging around, but nothing to go nuts trying to find either.

12 oz bottle into a Pilsner glass

A: Two finger head that stuck around at a finger's width for a sip or two, but kept nice lacing throughout. Nice mahogany coloring.

S: Sweeter smell, woody aftertones.

T: Slight wood elements to the taste, but not much going on otherwise. Subtle but not great.

M: Feels very light, almost as if I'm sipping on foam, but with the smaller head, I know it is just the texture of the beer.

O: The bitterness is offset by the wonderfully light mouthfeel and aroma. Nice beer, but not my favorite.

Hearty, full, and even. It's smooth with clean tones. Almost a nutty flavor to it. I think you'd want to drink this with a hearty meal - a meat and potatoes kind of thing. But hey...that is just my immature palate's wild guess. I know Allagash makes a lot of different stuff, so I would be quicker to try the others before coming back to this one.

12oz. bottle served in my DFH Goblet. Reads Allagash ''Dubbel Ale' on the bottle - no freshness dating indicated. Poured a murky, bark brown with a fluffy, off-white, quarter inch head - brew resonates ruby red when held up to the light. Some thick slashes of lacing adhered to the sides of the glass during the tasting - similar to a swath of paint in consistency and retention. Nose is dark malt, brown sugar some belgian yeast character and perhaps a hint of anise. Taste consistent with nose with the faintest hint of dark fruit in the mix - somewhat muted and dry finishing. Mouthfeel is medium/light in consistency with a subtle background carbonation. Somewhat lacking in flavor for a dubbel, but not bad. I'll have to give the Reserve a try to see how it stacks up.
