Notes/Commercial Description:
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

3.59/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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.
