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

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.
