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

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.

Notes: Recommended to me by the Mid-Atlantic Brewery News Baltimore correspondent, Alexander Mitchell, while we were waiting in line on 2012-12-12 for the special release of Westvletereen XII.

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.

A - Beautiful, rich, caramel color with a very dense, creamy beige head.

S - Alcohol bite on the nose followed by dried pit fruits, yeast, and even a sweet white wine smell.

T - Jarringly bitter. Grapefruit rind with a yeasty and metallic undertone with faint banana and tropical fruits.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation. Astringent finish.

D - Everything but the taste of this dubbel is a winner, it is just too bitter.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Pours with a two finger head of white foam on top of a hazy, amber body. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves decent lace.

S - Some toffee, spicy Belgian yeast, and a touch of red apple.

T - Spicy yeast up front with a bit of red apple. Some toffee in the middle and more muted spice, perhaps a touch of coriander. Finishes with more of the same toasted malt and light spice.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - A bit bland for a dubbel. The yeast character is mild and the malt is not quite as dark as I would expect it to be for the style. Just not much going on here.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: half finger head with poor retention on a slightly hazy deep amber body.

S: aroma is very very light with hints of cola, hints of molasses and toffee and some caramel.

T: very plain. some spices, very light yeast. toffee and caramel base. this one just isnt up to par with other dubbels I have had.

M: light to medium body and high carbonation.

Overall: its definitely very drinkable, its just not very flavorful. almost like a watered down dubbel.
