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.

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 (3.25) : 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 a short while (say, 10 minutes) the beer takes on a medicinal taste...with slight bubble gum. I actually ended up pouring it after I finished the review.

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

Overall (3.38) : 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.

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.
