A: dark, with caramel complection. not visable through, but dark dark amber finish.

S: moderately sweet, but typical of an english abbey. not overly sweet an not too much fruit aroma as experienced with prior abbeys.

T: clean finish, great taste and finish. not heavy and lives up to the brewer's name "brewer's art". the complexity and fine flavor is truly an art.

M: incredibly smooth, easy to drink. not like anything over 7% apv that i've experienced. taste make it's easy to drink and have plenty.

O: hands down my favorite beer. reminds me of home, and tastes exceptional. made me a fan of english dubbels without being over bearing or specific.

I was at a "Flicks in the Park" event last night. There were limited choices on hand for both food and beer. Luckily, the beer options were either pale ale or Resurrection from Brewer's Art. I had three Resurrections last night, and felt compelled to leave yet another review.

The beer last night was extremely fresh. The main reason I needed to leave a review is that it looked absolutely perfect. Still a slightly cloudy mahogany. The difference came in the fluffy, tight tan head. The fingerfull came off the pour and lasted and lasted. My friend forgot about their's for 25 minutes, it didn't move. I still had a mustache full at the end, with beautiful lacing. This was all with plastic cups. Amazing.
Again, I'd say that it had some hints of the wheat bread, but there were definite dark fruits and a light sourness.
Yeah, you get the caramel and raisins, but with the fresh one you have spiciness, dark candy sugar, and a light sour cream level sourness. I can't think of any way to make it better.
Mouthfeel was a chewy medium, with some lingering mixtures swirling about.
Drinkable? Is that even a question here?

A- dark orange, brownish tint where it's dense. Light tan finger width head sits and sits in this brewer's art chalice.

S- raisin, caramel, or maybe you could just call that combo figs.

T- really sweet to start off. A copious amount of caramel malt in this, but it's got the ever so slightest amount of a darker roast, like a touch of chocolate to come in there and balance out part of the sweetness. If the sweetness stayed the whole way I would not like this.

M- Medium. Good feel, enough body here but not overly slick or anything. Done pretty well for the style.

D- excellent. I can see why so many people in the Baltimore area consider this their go-to beer.

I've now had this several times at several places around town (Baltimore & Inland). Fantastic each time. Feel free to convince me otherwise but this is the best (regular) beer in Maryland. Easily.

There's an impeccable mix of classic Belgian sourness and fruity/candi sugar sweetness. A slightly, ever so slightly thicker liquid than your average beer, demanding each sip be forcefully enjoyed.

The alcohol hit is heavy, as a percentage of the beer but it's completely hidden in the brew so take it easy when drinking these.

This beer poured into the glass a gold/hazelnut color that was visually cloudy, that when held to the light you see red and orange hues through out. It produced a beige/lemon color that was thick and creamy in nature, lasting fairly well then subsiding to a small covering and a ring along the edges. This ring helped produce a thin and spotty lace down the glass. The aromas that came from the glass were of sweet malt, big sweet dark fruits (cherry, raisins, plums), spices, wood and some alcohol (light). The tastes that rolled across my tongue were of dark fruits (cherries, plums, sweet raisins), malt (sweet and dark – both mixing together), spices (licorice, cloves), deep wood (like an aging barrel), and some alcohol. It left behind a semi-sweet spicy flavor on the tongue that was very pleasing. This is one complete and balanced beer, from the flavors to the aromas that they produce. Pleasing to the senses and packed full with flavor - all in a single sip or wiff. Very enjoyable and will be looking to get more. All around great beer.

The guys at The Brewer's Art don't really believe in following any specific style. They prefer to describe their beers as being "in the Belgian style". The Ressurection is somewhat of a Dubbel, though there seems to be some spicing going on - although it might be from the yeast. Regardless, all of their beers are excellent and I'm surprised they haven't received more attention.
I believe the name came about from an early batch that had stopped fermenting for some reason. A replacement yeast was found, pitched, and the lost brew was ressurected!
The body is a cloudy deep copper/ mahogany with an orange cast when held to the light, but it appears much darker and reddish when sitting on the bar. It's creamy yellow-stained ivory head holds well, eventually drops to a nicely creamy collar, and leaves some thin lace throughout the glass. The bold nose expresses lightly sweet and fruity (raisins, prune) malt with a touch of wood and spice. Some alcohol adds to its aroma, but it's really well-engrained and never imposes. The mouthfeel is lightly zesty at first due to its very fine and gently effervescent carbonation; and it becomes creamier as it warms, enhancing the firmly malty body. The flavor is rich and seductive. It starts with soft dark fruit and sweet malt up-front, including notes of raisin, plum, and cherry. It's not tart at all, and the fruity notes blend flawlessly into the sweet dark malt. As it warms in the mouth some woody character becomes apparent. It finishes dry with a mild sweet malt followed by a light spiciness (some clove; maybe a very mild touch of anise?) and then some residual oak. Extremely well-balanced, flavorful, and complex. Immensely enjoyable and highly drinkable! Well worth seeking out for the lover of Belgian-style beers!
