During the fermentation of the first batch of this
Abbey-style dubbel, the yeast «died» and was
«resurrected» by brewer Chris Cashell. Made with five types of barley malt and lots of sugar, this beer is quite strong and flavorful, without being too sweet. 7%abv

Had it at Brewer's Art. From notes.

A - Reddy brown pour with a cloudy body. One finger of beige head left a little lace and a film of retention.

S - Sugar, dark fruit, yeast.

T - A bit of spice, dark fruit, yeast, nice sweetness to it.

M - Nice mild and pleasant carbonation, medium to full body and a sweet then dry finish.

O/D - A decent Dubbel. Complex and hits the requisite flavour notes, but doesn't go to crazy. Nice.

4.23/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: slightly hazy, tawny in color.... huge, rocky, cottony, open, off-white foam - keeps a decent mound of suds in the middle as the liquid recedes, minimal lace.... miniscule specks of some kind of sediment dotting the expanse of the liquid

S: (not knowing from the label and elsewhere) this smells like a dubbel or maybe a Scotch ale.... it's pretty wonderful - cinnamon, allspice, dark plum, prune.... high L crystal malt or candi sugar plays a huge part in the aromas as well.... fantastic yeast aromatics... little bit of clove and bubblegum

T: spices, toasted dark grains in the finish... complex shift in flavors throughout the first few sips.... spicy phenols and booze dominate, but the round, fruity malt/sugar does balance enough, serving as a foundation.... not as much fruit flavor as aromas suggest - the overall taste leans more toward dark, caramelized malts and spicy booze

M: somewhat silken, slight-medium body.... soft-sudsy wash, moderate residual gas.... bit of a dew-like sticky film.... mostly dry, hardly parching

O: one of the more well-made domestic dubbels I've had -

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

I had this can at the Cove in York, enjoyed chilled in a pint glass.

The color is dark amber with thin head of beige with rocky frothy look. The clarity is hazed as of an unfiltered beer with fine bead. The retention is good and lace sticks. The smell is very nutty with a slight tropical ester like dates with light spiced accent from the yeast and mild alcohol aroma. The feel is good semi-dry spiced texture with thin body for the style, but not too dry or phenolic moderately carbonated.

The flavor has an element of fruit with semi-spicy yeast giving the ale more of a light taste with toasted grain taste in the background. The flavor has fruity yeast with an herbal tinge of hops perhaps, but the malt is lacking in this for my taste. Overall not a bad beer but if you want a dubbel more representative of the style there are better options, the drinkability is good overall.

Poured from a can into a tulip. Pours deep light red with a nice white head. Smells of berries and Belgian yeast, berries dominant. Tastes of sweet grain with hints of berries nice balance. Beer is carbonated nicely light body goes down smooth. Overall an above average beer.

3.58/5  rDev -7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is dark copper, head is huge on the last glug, had to slurp some foam. Head color is light tan very nice lacing and it lingers very thick, about 3/4 inch.

Smell is more malty than yeasty, some toast, maybe biscuit, caramel flavors; yeast flavors are slight phenol and light banana and clove.

Taste is more malty than yeasty, yeast flavor is off, slightly astringent. Malt flavors are slightly thin, dry with some caramely flavors; yeast flavors from the nose come through, light banana clove.

Mouthfeel is sweeter upfront quickly overtaken by drying qualities, some lingering yeast and sweet flavors, drying on the tongue.

Overall, a slightly light dubbel, maybe headed towards saison dryness more so than dubbel sweetness and yeastiness.

Served in a chalice

A- pours a dark & murky reddish purple color with a one-finger creamy off-white head that reduces to a small layer skimming the top

S- lots of dark fruit aromas up front with notes of dried cherries, plum and fig. Sweet brown sugary notes with a touch of alcohol closes it out

T- dark fruit notes follow the aromas with big flavors of fig and prune. Mid-palate provides a bit of caramels listed brown sugar sweetness that continues through to the finish with a bit of alcohol

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a crisp finish

O- an enjoyable Dubbel and a good effort on an American attempt of the style

3.56/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a lightly hazy reddish-brown color. The amber-colored head is fairly tall initially, with a somewhat dense, foamy texture. Retention is solid, and quite a few splotchy rings of lace cling to the glass.

S: Quite sweet up front. Toffee and caramel is prominent. Quite a bit of orchard fruitiness as well, with notes of golden apples and ripe pears, with faint banana tones. Some leafy and herbal hop aroma is also detectable. Faint spice and alcohol aromas are also present.

T: A malty, sweet beer initially. Caramel, toffee, and Belgian sugar take the fore. Hops arrive midway through to add some balancing bitterness and a bit of leafy flavor. Fruity esters are noticeable, with the same orchard and raisin notes as in the nose. Spicy notes arrive later on, along with some alcohol.

M: Medium body. Actually a bit light for the style, to me. Carbonation is smooth and on the lighter side of medium. There's a bit of alcohol heat here. The mouthfeel does linger a bit into the finish.

O: This is a solid American take on a Belgian dubbel. It grew on me a bit as I drank it, but it never wowed me. It seemed a bit scattered compared to some of the better versions of the style, but it was still enjoyable.

A: a beautiful dark amber with a bit of lacy foam on top

T: similar to other reviews I perused this is where Resurrection makes its living. A nice carmel, sugar, dark fruit flavor at the front of the mouth then slowly morphs into this great herbal hop bitterness. The hops really cling to the back of the tongue and at a new dimension to the beer.

M: really hefty body,creamy almost. Really sticks to the tongue

O: really a great beer from this brewery and now I really want to try more of their beers.

Picked up a single of this beer at my local establishment, Civera's in Drexel Hill. Lets see how it matches up. Poured from a 12 ounce can into a snifter glass.

Appearance: pours a nice, caramel brown with a slight amber hue. Leaves behind a nice fluffy head, about an inch high that takes its time to dissipate. Also leaves a behind some impressive lacing. Nicely done.

Smell: Dubbels traditionally have a nice caramel aroma and this is no different. Upon first inspection, a full aroma of malts and caramel fill the air. Upon my second whiff, hints of dark fruits come to mind, prunes, grapes, raisins. Not very impressed, I was looking for more of a dark malt flavor. It's lacking in that department.

Taste: first sips, I discovered a hint of the crystal sugars, but not too overwhelming, which is a nice touch and keeps it balanced. The Belgian style yeast is not bad either. There's a hint of that in it. Light spices can be detected, but nothing that really stands out to make this beer it's own. A little surprised/disappointed in that. Upon completion of this beer, I noticed the balance isn't too noticeable and could use some work.

Mouthfeel: medium carbonation, above average carbonation with a nice cream-style body. Quite nice.

Overall: I guess I had high expect ions coming into this beer. It was good, don't get me wrong, but for this style, I guess I was expecting something out of this world when it comes to my beer palate. It did have a smooth, creamy body that went down nice and hid the alcohol well. I would try again, only if it were on tap since I would love to have another experience from a different side. I would recommend to a friend who isn't familiar with the genre but looking to expand. I would recommend at least a bottle. Cheers!

4.39/5  rDev +14%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - 1 finger head with nice retention. Dark orange/brown color and semi translucent.

Smell - For a Belgian style Dubbel, there isn't much in the smell. Very mild malt and breadiness and some hints of spice and hops but barely noticeable.

Taste - This is where it's won, and Brewer's Art did a fantastic job with this. Very wonderfully balanced between malt, spice/yeast and hops. Has a great flavor profile of sweet raisin/fig and hop crispness in finish.

Mouthfeel - very creamy and full bodied

Overall - I was shocked at how well crafted this beer was made and its taste. It's absolutely worth trying. I'll be looking for this one again many times to come.

3.69/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from can into a chalice glass

Appearance – Pours a beautiful chestnut colored brew with a decent ruby red hue mixed within. Upon pouring there is a one finger light tan colored head that has a fantastic level of retention. Over time the head slowly fades leaving a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell- The aroma is light overall. Some light toasted malts as well as some darker fruits are the heaviest of the detectable aromas. The darker aromas are mainly of a cherry and raisin smell. These aromas are all mixed with a slightly yeasty and lightly spiced aroma of coriander and clove as well as a bit of a boozy wine like smell.

Taste- The taste begins on the drier side with a lightly roasted malt and bready flavor. Some lighter dark fruit flavors of cherry and plum are present upfront. As the flavors advance a caramel flavor comes and goes from the tongue never really having the chance to take the brew out of its dry tasting state. Some earthy and grassy hop flavors as well as a somewhat more potent alcohol flavor come to the taste more toward the middle to the end, breaking some of the smooth dryness that was present upfront. Other lighter flavor so of a yeasty and spicy flavor join the taste at its end, with the combination of all the flavors leaving a dry, crisp, and boozy flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel-The body of the beer is crisp and lighter for a 7 % dubbel with a carbonation level that is average to a tad above average. The slightly thinner body and slightly higher carbonation are great for complementing this crisp, dry and boozy tasting brew all while still allowing the lighter fruit flavors to shine through.

Overall- A pretty nice dry and warming dubbel, which all the while still maintains a nice fruit flavor profile. Although it is a bit on the boozy and biting side at the end of the taste, it is still rather enjoyable to drink. Worth a try if you have the opportunity.

Can on the Christian feast of the Resurrection: Easter. Fitting.

Gotta represent the local brew from Baltimore, and a decent one at that. Pours a lovely deep red at the top, a little lighter at the bottom. Head is thick and pillowy. Nose is full, with semi-sweet malts. Taste is complex and lovely. Sweets hit first, then develops into bitter malts and hops. It's somewhat of a poor man's dubbel, lacking some character of flavor. At least the artwork on the can is sweet, with the drop of messianic blood dripping into the chalice of salvation.

All in all, a Maryland brew to be proud of.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A – Dark icetea amber body. Bone-white head is creamy, with great retention and solid lace.

S – On the sweeter side with caramel and malt. Kiss of grassy hops, and a light booze as it warms.

T – Stellar balance. The profile opens with smooth malt coupled with a great, green, herbal hop bitterness. The hops stand out with fantastic flavor definition, but manage to avoid overpowering the rest of the profile and pulling the beer into IPA territory. The center is loaded with fruit: orange and plums. Caramel and a rolling herbal bitterness balance a net-dry finish.

M – Super smooth, medium/full body.

O – Classifying this beer as a Double doesn't do it justice. It's unquestionably off-style for a double, but it's unquestionably delicious. I'd be much happier calling it an "American Double"; a lighter, hoppier version of it's Belgian cousin - and to that end I'd argue that it was brewed perfectly to-style lol. No matter how you label it though, it's a fantastic brew. This one took me totally by surprise and I was quite happily blown away.

12oz can into an Orval chalice.

Ugly can label. Pours a peach-brown color. Mucky enough to not pass much light. The head looks sloshy and weak. Islands of bubbles pattern amongst foamy scum on the surface.

Dark fruits and phenols. Yeast esters push cherry, date, and raisin through the malts. Notes of dark caramel and stale bread are also prominent. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Drier than I'd expect for a dubbel. Crystal malts are steely, with a dry toffee note. Alcohol is kind of big for the percentage. Brashly spicy and potent, too. Notes of raisin, date, and dark bread are all quite dried out. If my eyes were closed, I'd never guess this beer to be this dark. Almost tastes like a strong pale with darker fruit flavors. Earthy dead leaf flavor is probably a byproduct of a powdery yeast. A fresher hop character than I'm used to in this style. Medicinal almost turns minty in the finish.

Drinks just light of medium, in body. Carbonation is almost sizzling, however. A mouthfeel that I'm not particularly used to for a Belgian-style ale. Again, the strength is a bit too pronounced.

It's just an okay beer, really. Doesn't taste contrived. After letting it warm up and become fully-realized, I can admit that it's right in the ballpark, after all. A uniquely dry dubbel, and out of a can, no less.

Had this on 2012-12-27 in Columbia, PA

A - Pretty clear, dark tawny-amber with a 3/4-finger head that fades away very quickly with light lace.

S - Sweet caramel, brown bread, light yeast. Not very aromatic.

T - Gingerbread, caramel, medium roasted malt, herbal, light citrus. Dries nicely and finishes with balancing roast and hop bitterness; even leaning towards pale ale territory. Not overly complex but it tastes good.

M - Medium body and high carbonation. Both smooth and crisp. Nice.

O - This one surprised me. I was expecting a more traditional Dubbel but got a style-bending brew, merging a brown ale, dubbel and a pale ale. I'd be glad to have this again.

A – Dark icetea amber body. Bone-white head is creamy, with great retention and solid lace.

S – On the sweeter side with caramel and malt. Kiss of grassy hops, and a light booze as it warms.

Really cool to see a Belgian beer in a can, judgment still out on how this will hold up with Belgian beer fans. Appearance had a cherry red raisin color with a slight blood orange hue. clarity was minimal. a big off white head that dissipated somewhat quickly in the glass. The aroma was full of dark candi sugar sweetness. some toffee notes, some dark fruit notes (def. cherry) with a slight citrus and caramel aroma as well. The flavor is not exactly the same though, Some raisin notes perk up in the front. the middle seems to present the moderately strong dark sugar character that is similar in the nose. the mouthfeel i feel is a bit in the middle for a Belgian style ale. it could either finish quicker or hang out but transits while it hangs around. I believe this to be a sessionable style Belgian beer with a higher than average ABV. its aroma really did it for me and the interesting coffee acridness which i am probably confusing for a higher than average hoppyness combined with the malt character is actually very enjoyable.

I had this beer at the restaurant on-tap, as well as at Bertha's, but from a can, while in Baltimore in November 2012.

The beer appeared a nice, clear, dark ruby red color that produced a nice white head that left a thin cap. The beer gave off a nice sweet aroma with hints of yeast and sugar. The beer had a really good taste to it. I have to admit, that the style is not my favorite, but I have to say that this is probably the best of the bunch that I have tried. Sweet maltiness with hints of sugar. A hint of alcohol is ever so noticeable. The beer had a nice moderate feel to it with nice carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a very good beer, with no let down from the one that I tried from a can. I will have this beer again the next time that I am in Baltimore.

Pours a dark walnut body beneath the bubbly tan head that quickly dissolves to leave only traces of lacing.

Aromas of sweet fruit such as plum and cherry rise from the glass accompanied by molasses and yeast but not as strong as you would expect.

Flavors also offer sweet fruit, molasses, yeast and hints of brown sugar.

Medium in body and carbonation with a drying finish.

Not bad with many traditional Dubbel characteristics just not as pronounced as some of its style counterparts.

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

Pours a deep dark orange with a prodigious beige head that settles down slowly. Creamy, clingy lacing. Very sweet and malty aroma; fruity yeast notes, bread, subtle citrus hops, brown sugar and molasses.

The flavor is much the same, although the sweet caramel-toffee dries up pretty well in the finish. Nice chewy malt character; a hint of booze; dark fruits, yeasty spice, and some vaguely citrusy hops just poking out and asserting a light bitterness. Unfortunately the carbonation is a little excessive and prickly and detracts from the overall enjoyment of the beer. Its hard to revel in the strong and sweet malt character without much accompanying smoothness or creaminess. The body is just a shade lighter than medium for the style which also didn't help; it could have used just a little more heft.

However not a bad brew at all; I wish the feel had been a little smoother, because the aroma and taste are both quite nice.

A Can

Ressurection comes to me looking pretty standard doubleish with a dark brown bordering on red kinda like a maroon color with a cream tan shaded head that sat on top leaving minor ticks on the glass. Nice looking up towards the light. Smell is real bready, a deep dark bread, not overly yeasty like most. Smells of caramel, and plums with raisin plus others. A very good dubble here, better than most american versions I've had recently. Dark fruits plus plums with dark bread. Some faint cherry notes and a touch of chocolate. Some banana and hefeweizen tastes. Feel is a step down from medium and is a tad thin, but that makes this even more drinkable. I finished a 12oz and contemplated getting more, for a style that's not my priority. Get a hold of this stuff.
