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

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.

Pours a deep dark orange with a prodigious beige head that settles down slowly. Creamy, clingy lacing. Very sweet and malty aroma; fruity yeast notes, bread, subtle citrus hops, brown sugar and molasses.

The flavor is much the same, although the sweet caramel-toffee dries up pretty well in the finish. Nice chewy malt character; a hint of booze; dark fruits, yeasty spice, and some vaguely citrusy hops just poking out and asserting a light bitterness. Unfortunately the carbonation is a little excessive and prickly and detracts from the overall enjoyment of the beer. Its hard to revel in the strong and sweet malt character without much accompanying smoothness or creaminess. The body is just a shade lighter than medium for the style which also didn't help; it could have used just a little more heft.

However not a bad brew at all; I wish the feel had been a little smoother, because the aroma and taste are both quite nice.

A Can

Ressurection comes to me looking pretty standard doubleish with a dark brown bordering on red kinda like a maroon color with a cream tan shaded head that sat on top leaving minor ticks on the glass. Nice looking up towards the light. Smell is real bready, a deep dark bread, not overly yeasty like most. Smells of caramel, and plums with raisin plus others. A very good dubble here, better than most american versions I've had recently. Dark fruits plus plums with dark bread. Some faint cherry notes and a touch of chocolate. Some banana and hefeweizen tastes. Feel is a step down from medium and is a tad thin, but that makes this even more drinkable. I finished a 12oz and contemplated getting more, for a style that's not my priority. Get a hold of this stuff.

Poured a reddish brown with decent head on top of a spicey and sweet malt (def some sugar) aroma, complete with a touch of yeast and orange found in Belgians. Not as sweet as the smell, nor does it have pronounced fruit flavors but overall there is a good citric/orange fruit quality with a sweet vibe. Beer is medium bodied and goes down easy with a nice little kick at the end and you can sorta feel the booze as you keep sipping. A pretty good ale and def worth a try if your in the Baltimore area.
