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.

Color is hazy amber with a thin layer of fine, light tan bubbles.

Yeast is the dominant smell plus pear and some spiciness, even a light note of coffee.

A gentle sweetness and some dextrins compliment the bready and chocolatey malts in this medium bodied beer.

I'm enjoying this more and more!

Leaves a bit of warmth as a perfect amount of carbonation and an ample hopping finish it off

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle poured into tulip at ~53F. Batch #97.

A: Deep copper, ample puffy head and good lacing. Slight hazy.

S: Belgian yeast, grassy hops, light caramel.

T: Pretty aggressive hops, reminds me a bit of the style of Allagash White in terms of the deviation from the oringinal. Fairly close to the Ommegang style but not quite as warm and malty, a bit tinnier.

M: Middle of the road in terms of viscosity, pretty acidic with medium carbonation. Easy to drink.

Overall quite impressive brew, not a world class example of the dubbel style though.

Pours a nice reddish amber with a momentary one-finger head.

Nice aroma. Slightly funky Belgain yeast and complex malt aromas.

Decent flavor. Somewhat complex malt character. Toasty malt. Belgian yeast in the middle. And a crisp, clean, bitter finish.

The mouthfeel is not fantastic. Medium bodied, a little on the thin side. But it's hard to tell with so much carbonation. This is a Belgian style beer, so I guess the high carbonation is acceptable.

This beer is pretty decent. Nothing outrageous. A nice representation of the style.

Poured into a tall chalice, nice creamy light tan head sits on top, color is transparent amber, decent carbonation.

Smell is spicy, hints of phenols and bready yeast.

Taste is clean, lightly spiced, hints of caramel and toffee malt, bready, yeast. Sweetness is just right, bitterness just enough to clean it up.

Mouthfeel is very well balanced, nicely carbonated, clean.

Overall this is a great dubbel, maybe a touch light on some malt sweetness but very clean flavors.
