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

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.

Enjoyed this 750ml bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a dark brown with a thick, frothy, 3-finger,white head that slowly dissipates into a wispy lace leaving a nice trail down the glass.

S: Sweet malt aroma with hints of dark fruits.

T: More sweet than bitter with an alcoholic bite. Dark fruits and spicy phenols present in the background.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: I really enjoyed this brew – had it on tap awhile ago – and this was just as good from the bottle if not better.

Brought this 750ml back from home in Baltimore bout a year and a half ago. Date was best before 2/12/12.

"Popped" this one out of a 750. Had a little bit of age. Pours deep red. Nice of"fiz" that turns into a thick, creamy, inch high head. Lacing pretty much all the way down.

Smell is of dark fruit, and candi sugar. A small hint of biscuit and Belgian yeast. Smells like a traditional dubbel.

Taste is very similar to smell. Dark fruit, candi sugar, caramel,etc. slightly astringent, alcohol is present but not overwhelming. Smooth.... Would be a nice Winter Warmer!!!

Feels as a Dubbel should. Viscous, slightly syrupy, though not
excessively. Nice job with this one.

Fairly pleased with this brew. Have tried brew of similar style, body has been thin or taste is astringent, common Dubbel flaws. This one is slightly over carbonated, which could be attributed to the age. Would put this on par with proper Belgian Dubbels. Would get this one again. Wanted to save longer but glad with the result.

Poured into a broad tulip glass, turning almost completely into foam which is tan with some orange highlights. The foam settles down into a cloudy, burnt orange liquid.

Immediate Brett mustiness with some citrus and hard cider overtones. Malty backbone as well. These carry into the flavor which begins with the funk and evident alcohol. The hops presence comes off as tropical fruits (pineapple and mango) and remains with the alcohol in the nicely dry finish. The only bad thing here is that the alcohol comes off a little solvent.

One of the few beers in this style brewed in the US where I could distinctly pick out the tasting elements brought in by the malts, hops and yeast. In most of these one or two dominate and the malts or the hops are typically relegated to mouthfeel duty without bringing any additional flavors.

A bottle left over after GABF judging and given to me as a reward for my volunteer efforts. Entered as an Abbey, not a Dubbel as the style here on BA states. Pours an entire glass of light brown foam with no liquid. Upon settling, the liquid was clear brown-copper. Smells fig, chocolate pudding, pears, brown sugar, candi-sugar, floral, clean alcohol, and a waft of spicy zip.

Tastes moderate malt sweet supporting dominant fruity esters. Nice candi-sugar adds depth, as does a spicy belgian yeast zip. Phenols are present, but muted and overpowered by the malt and esters. Malt tastes lightly of chocolate and gently toasted bread. Esters (which dominate the palate) are pear, green raisin, crisp-style apple, and green grape. Finish is a bit musty and weedy which dries is out with a lingering edginess. Light, yet somehow chewy, in the mouth with way too much carbonation. Has a concerning stomach heartburn, which suggest to me, some sort of contaminant microbe. I give this one a 'meh'.

somehow had skipped out on this, save for a small session amount which I could not fully taste due to being overpowered by the other beers

A - dark reddish brown, great creamy head, looks great in a tulip glass

S - evident sugary malt and Belgian yeast, some citrusy florals from the hops

T - sweet malt and slightly biting flowery hop taste followed by the classic Belgian dubbel taste and a powerful bready malt finish. excellent

M - very carbonated, possibly a little too much, but otherwise well bodied

O - a great local staple, and recommended for any beer fan

Finally, after living in the DC area for over a decade, passing by the renowned brewery/brewpub/upscale restaurant/historical landmark countless times in Baltimore, and trading the "Green Peppercorn Trippel" several times, I'm trying my first Brewer's Art beer!

A: Cloudy crimson, with a massive 2 finger + off white (pink highlighted?) brew that kept it's shaving cream-like consistency throughout the session.

S: Very fruity, and it wasn't the dark fruit, brown sugar bomb I was expecting. I got overripe strawberries with Belgian yeast. Maybe a hint of pepper.

T: No brown sugar or Belgian funk. I never would have tagged this as a Dubbel... more like one of Dogfish Head's off-centered, gourmet, historical brews. The berries hit the palate initially, but at the end, a sort of crushed lollypop quality made an appearance.

M: Very smooth... gulpable even! Nice prickly carbonation and the sweetness was definitely there, may have overstayed it's welcome a bit after a few sips, but was overall pleasant.

O: One of the stranger Dubbels I've had in recent memory, but it wasn't half bad...

One of my friends, who digs this beer said it best, "It's an Un-Belgiany, Belgian ale, for people who typically don't like Belgian Ales."

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.

Good malty offering from Brewers Art

Presentation: 750 ml brown corked bottle. Light brown label design with a glowing chalice presiding it under the name of the brew. Back label along the perfunctory legal notes adds briefly that "a portion of the proceeds will go to local programs that "help people get back on their feet". Notes a date (2/12/12 Bottling?) Shows O.G. Plato (16.4), and Alc. by Vol. (7.0%). Served in a tulip glass.

A -Deep amber to amber-brown pour. Fair bubbly head, medium retention and some lacing.

S - Subdued malty spiciness, with faint yeasty Belgium notes, over a malty sweetness..

T - Malt sweetness with a fruity sense, figs, prunes... A light yeasty sense over a tiny touch of caramel with a hint of spices.

M - Medium body and carbonation with a nice sense of balance.

D - Pleasing drinker that albeit has nothing too enticing feels rather good.

Notes: While nothing particularly outstanding this is a nice and reliable ale. Good for an uncomplicated malty sweet offering with some dark fruit touches.

Caged/Corked

Poured into a chalice a very nice grapy color, nice carbonation, very nice two-finger plus foamy off-white head, with some nice thick/creamy sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, slight yeast note, grapes, slight cherries, with some spice note. The taste is sweet, malty, nice little touch of yeast, grapy, some cherries. Medium body. Drinkable, this is a fine brew. So far 2 for 2 with them. Recommended.

This beer appears a hazy, dark orange hue. The head is rather substantial and leaves plenty of lacing in its wake.

Aromas consist of Belgian yeast, candied fruits, sugars.

The taste is in the realm of a dubbel, but slightly odd. The beer is too sweet for my liking, with apples and/or pears coming through prominently. It seems as though the many complexities of this beer just can't seem to work together. Flavors disappear while others jump out, and meanwhile, an ever-growing cloying sweetness looms larger with each successive drink. This beer has potential, as there is a lot going on here, including some likable aromas and flavors.

Basically, this beer is middle of the road, in my opinion. I believe that there are many better examples of the style. I have another bottle in the cellar and I'd like to have this again. Hopefully, I will have a better experience the next time around.

Second bottle of the night that was opened. This one like the first was served in several snifters. Consumed on 06/30/2010.

The pour was a nice medium caramel color with a nice tan head that graced the sides for a good few minutes. Same very carbonated pour as the ozzy but the lacing hung around considerably less this time.

Aroma of light caramel, figs, prunes, hints of various other ark fruits mixed in throughout now as well. But it seems to have some murky, not completely full profile to it. Flavor follows suit with something just obviously missing here. Not terribly balanced or pronounced the flavors are there, dark fruit, light spice, but do not seem to really take me anywhere. Alcohol is well hidden and the body hols its own.

Overall not a bad beer by any aspect, but a rather non stand out from the crowds.

750ml bottle, thanks to the All Blacks for the try

split/paired with a 14oz grilled ribeye

appearance: poured into my hopleaf tulip, murky and muddy brown-amber body, heavy foam level (only in one glass, so pour may have been the culprit), webby tan lacing, tons of sediment

smell: toffee, belgian yeasts, plum, dark fruits, caramel, spice

taste: This was a pretty nice dubbel but it really didnt do anything to stick out in an overly positive (or negative) manner. The toffee and spices provide a nice flair but the yeast and wheat flavors are a little strong.

mouthfeel: tight carbonation, heavy sediment levels

drinkability: fine

Poured from a 750 ML bottle into my Duvel tulip.

a - Pours an amber-brown color with 2+ fingers of an off white head that has a lot of retention. Moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of Belgian yeast, spices, dark fruits, and sweet sugar or molasses.

t - Tastes of sugar, dark fruits, yeast, spices, and maybe a little citrus fruit. Taste is strong and sweet, but as the notes mention, never overpoweringly sweet.

m - Full bodied and high carbonation.

d - A pretty nice dubbel. Lots going on in the taste but I really liked it. I enjoyed the sweet smell and taste and thought the smell was very balanced. Would have liked it to be a little less carbonated. Would try again.

In tribute to Leigh and Brendan at the Resurrection Ale House, for the PLCB raid BS...
750ml bottle (thx johnmichaelsen!), best by 2/12/11, poured into my large St. Feuillien goblet, Resurrection is cola brown with a massive white head, a bit rocky settling with long last and leaves lots of foamy lace.

Smell is strongly phenolic to the point of being a bit soapy, with some sweet brown sugar / honey. It opened up nicely, and continued to grow on me, although I consistently preferred the taste.

Taste rather spicy, phenolic, but with nice cured fruits, big fig, some raisin. This beer has some estery bite, although there might be some spices as well. As it warms from cellar temp, the malt continues to open, providing depth without growing cloyingly sweet. Great dubbel.

Mouthfeel is very full of fine carbonation, light bodied and slippery.

Drinkability is very good, a nice dubbel for my taste, with enough sweetness to counter the spicy esters, full of character yet still highly digestible. Very well done, I've been really impressed with the four Brewer's Art beers I've got to enjoy so far. Thanks again John!

A: Huge, frothy, billowy off-white head sits atop a cherry oak colored body. Lacing is impressive and extensive.

S: Dry yeasty smell on the nose. A tiny bit of sweetness, but mostly a dry aroma.

T: Wonderful semi-sweet malty taste that comes through on the center of the tongue. Hints of caramel, toffee and rock candy sweetness. Subtle tastes but excellent.

M: An exquisite dry feel cloaks the alcohol completely. No idea you're drinking a 7% brew. Extensive soft carbonation helps with the hiding too. Silky smooth light-to-medium body.

D: Oh yeah, this bomber is an easy one to put away. I look forward to heading up to Baltimore to grab this one on tap. Hopefully I can find something in DC or the MD suburbs where I can stock up on this one.

Served: in a tulip glass.

Big thanks to TPerkinsBrewer for this one!

This pours an almost dark amber color with nice ruby tinting. The head is made up of two-fingers worth of thick, craggy, beige colored foam. The retention is very good and the lacing is thick and sticky.

The nose is filled with subtle notes of dark fruits. Good belgian yeastiness and some nice candi sugar notes. Nice, rich, maltiness. Nice hints of light spices.

The yeast presence is quite big in the taste area also, giving this one a very bready presence. The spices are a touch more pronounced than in the nose. The dark fruit notes are still subtle, but they are very nice. Plums, black cherries, figs and raisins. The maltiness and candi sugars bring just a touch of mild sweetness to the glass.

This one is full-bodied and has a medium-to-high level of carbonation. It is filled with tons of teeny-tiny little bubbles, which give it a beautiful level of creaminess.

The 7.00%abv level in this one drinks like it's not even half of that. The alcohol is extremely well hidden. This would almost qualify as a session beer, based on the flavor, which is quite unique for a dubbel.
This is my first beer from Brewer's Art and I don't mind saying that I am impressed. I'd like more please!

A good beer, but it seemed hellishly overcarbonated. Don't know if it was an individual fault or something systemic. Fortunately, it didn't wreck my appreciation.

Pours clear copper with an out of control head. Smell is fruity and phenolic, with apricot, pear, quince. Flavor is fruity, apricot, all spice, apple, a little vanilla. With nice bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is slightly clingy, but way overcarbonated. As it warms, strong brown sugar and toffee comes through.

Received this brew from masterchiefmd in a trade not so long back. This will be my first brew from Brewer's Art and until I got this, I've never heard of them. Drank from my Lost Abbey goblet.

Appearance- Pours a light pinkish copper with a semi tannish pink three finger head. An amazing cap and collar remain the entire beer along with plenty of thick lacing.
Smell- Fairly yeasty in the nose with some light fruity esters and spice wafting about. A tinge of alcohol in nostrils as well. Maybe a light bit of sugary sweetness but honestly the yeast just dominates.
Taste- Starts with a slightly sweet yeastiness that is somewhere between fruity and dirty. A bit of light brown sugar and/or Belgium candy as well. The malt is caramely and really not as rich as the smell sort of led me to believe. A slight bitterness sneaks in toward the middle which is surprising considering the sugars and malty nature of the brew. Lightly spicy to finish as the yeast is peppery and lightly fruity. The alcohol is honestly non existent in the taste. Surprised to read it's not like 4% or something.
Mouthfeel- Amazing all around. It manages to somehow have a fairly aggressive carbonation that is amazingly light and airy on the tongue. Lighter body that could probably be tuned up a hair but the overall feel is great.
Drinkability- I really enjoyed this brew. It's very easy drinking and has an amazing mouthfeel. It definitely doesn't have the intense sort of big flavor that most dubbels have but I think I'd prefer this. Just a nice beer that was an even nicer surprise. Thanks!

A - Hazy light brown with a massive foamy yellowish cream colored head. Very true to the style. Some lacing sticks.

S - Spicy and bready. Thick malts, but not sweet. Chalky yeast character. Earthy hops cut through the thick malts to add some spice.

T/M - Very complex. The taste changes alot from the start of the swig to the end. The grassy/flowery hops come through first, followed by a surprisingly light malt taste. Slight apple cider taste/feel. A little bit slick, and leaves a film.

D - It's tasty, and is nice to drink. Not to be had quickly, though.

Picked up a bottle at State Line Liquors in MD for about $10. This is a dubbel? OK, the Brewer's Art website calls it an abbey ale. I can live with that. The beer poured a clear amber with a white head. The flavor falls a little flat for my liking and the malts remind me of stale bread. There is a very pleasant dry bitter finish that bring this beer back from the edge of mediocrity (which really isn't too bad in this style). It's very drinkable and the body is right on for the style.

Bottle, corked and caged, into chalice. Purchased @ State Line liquors in Elkton, MD.

Pours a murky color somewhere between dark copper and brown, with a light khaki head that starts out a good 3 fingers thick and shows no desire at all to settle down. Nice looking beer. Stickage is good, not great.

Nose is bready, clove, brown sugar and dates; very nice, but just a bit light.

Taste starts off with a slighty tangy dark fruit note, burnt candy sugar, lot of brown sugar, quite bready, with a very light grassy hop bitterness in the back of the throat that emerges right before the finish. Minerally, maybe bordering on metallic. Picking up some toffee in there as well, and some toasty notes as it warms.

Mouthfeel is nice and soft, not quite fluffy, a bit sticky. Good but not great.

S: soft, muted dark fruits, caramel

T: a more robust version of the nose, with addition of prominent yeast tones and sweet candied sugar

M: smooth... a tad pedestrian, but no complaints... good carbonation to complement the massive head

A: Poured from the caged & corked 750 ml bottle into an oversized wine glass (no chalices or goblets available). Body is slightly hazy, dark amber, bordering on true brown, albeit with a hint of orange or even mahogany when backlit. A 1+ finger light-tan head settles on top. No lacing, though I find that's usually the case with this type of glass.

S: Mild fruit, candied sugar and a hint of unidentified spice.

T: Like the nose, mostly, this one is about the malt and yeast. Dark fruit, some brown and/or candied sugar, and a hint of clove and some other general spiciness. Pleasant all around.

M: Good active fizzy -- but gentle -- carbonation. Personally I like a little more heft in my beers (especially as I matched this up with a NY strip steak), but I can't quibble with the way this one felt on the palate.

D: Very good. Tasty and light in body, with a nice palate-cleansing effervescence to it means it went down easily.

Thanks to my brother-in-law in Baltimore for the gift.

Edit, 3-12-12: Had another bottle of this (also thanks to my brother-in-law) this past weekend. Bumped down the mouthfeel score, as it was overly-carbonated. Gentle pours still resulted in geysers, and it had an impact on the drinking experience. Otherwise, still a decent effort.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a nice white head that stays for a while. Smells of sweet belgian spices just as any other belgian ale would. Tastes good, I've had this beer many other times before, it has a typical dubbel taste, nothing too special. Sweet citrus hops, smooth alcohol flavor, and good maltyness. Mouthfeel was nice, crisp and refreshing, drinkability... the same, went down well.
