Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 02-06-2003

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

Can into tasting glass

A- Amber, no head
S- Smells like Carlsberg, a little bit of esters but nothing really appealing
T- Not much to say, bad beer
M- Undercarbed for a double
O- This is a bad beer, tastes like a macro-lager with a bit more malt, never again.

Got this beer in a trade as an extra. Thanks to my many trading partners.

Poured a nice dark amber with a very small off white head and gentle lacing

Very sweet to the smell with a touch of rasion.

Taste not very bad on the fromt but an odd musty after tast. Thought about pouring down drain but powered through

Mouthfeel was thin

Would not seek or even buy this beer.

This can was courtesy of Lunch from an in-person trade at DLD '11. Thanks Paul!

Poured into a New Belgium snifter. It pours a medium bodied nice reddish copper in color with a one finger soapy cream colored head. The aromas are of aluminum, pale malt, and caramel malt. It's hard for me to get much because of the aluminum. The flavors are of slight aluminum, caramel malts, mild yeasty spice with light dark fruits. Again, the aluminum is a little too prominent and takes away from the actual flavors of the beer. This beer is exceptionally smooth and has a near perfect body. Overall this seems that it's a beer that should not be canned and should remain in the bottle. I'd be interested in trying this one from the tap or out of a bottle.

Got this as an extra from someone - I apologize for not remembering who. This was best before February 2nd, 2011. Served in a Goose Island taster glass. Apparently this was contract brewed in Royersford, PA.

A - Pours with big foam that eventually settles to a thin cap, leaving a few fingers of lace. Hazed orange-brown body.

S - Yeast, brown (and/or candi) sugar, malted barley, overripe fruits. There's an aged quality to it as well. Verges on cloying.

T - Taste is a little better, as it's not as intensely saccharine. Quite smooth, with mostly sugary sweetness and a touch of rotting grapes.

M - Smooth, low carbonation, medium-light body, dry finish. Texture-wise this is quite pleasant.

D - Ugh. Even the taster was too much. There's no way I could drink 750ml of this, even if I was desperate. Takes the intense sweetness of a barleywine, adds more types of sugar, and "balances" it with fruity Belgian yeast. Not much of a dubbel.

Poured from a 12oz can into a snifter.

Nice orange, copper color, the head dissipates quickly, no lacing (although I don't really care about that), decent mouthfeel, decent balance.

Does anybody else get a fishy, maybe a crabby sort of flavor?
I'm not really digging this tonight. I was expecting something better.
A little thick / sticky on the finish.

Just gotta say that I love Belgian styled beer from a can. Classic.

Poured into a goblet.

Pours 1/2 finger of beige head. Fades to a ring, leaving no lace. Color is a murky caramel brown.

Aroma: Big malt profile with sweet flavors. Some toffee, candy sugar, dark fruits, bananas, and some spice notes. As it warms I get some raisins and plum flavors.

Taste: Kind of a bland dubbel. It has candied sugar, dark fruit notes, spices, and booze showing. The aroma is much better. There is also a burnt malt taste here. The taste kind of shocked me a bit.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, creamy, and boozy. Medium bodied with a low to medium amount of carbonation. Ends dry with sweet and malty flavors.

Overall, the nose was solid and I thought this beer was going to be good. However, the taste just didn't put up the flavor. This one is not very drinkable and something I will struggle to finish my 12 oz can.
