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

A: slightly hazy, tawny in color.... huge, rocky, cottony, open, off-white foam - keeps a decent mound of suds in the middle as the liquid recedes, minimal lace.... miniscule specks of some kind of sediment dotting the expanse of the liquid

S: (not knowing from the label and elsewhere) this smells like a dubbel or maybe a Scotch ale.... it's pretty wonderful - cinnamon, allspice, dark plum, prune.... high L crystal malt or candi sugar plays a huge part in the aromas as well.... fantastic yeast aromatics... little bit of clove and bubblegum

T: spices, toasted dark grains in the finish... complex shift in flavors throughout the first few sips.... spicy phenols and booze dominate, but the round, fruity malt/sugar does balance enough, serving as a foundation.... not as much fruit flavor as aromas suggest - the overall taste leans more toward dark, caramelized malts and spicy booze

M: somewhat silken, slight-medium body.... soft-sudsy wash, moderate residual gas.... bit of a dew-like sticky film.... mostly dry, hardly parching

O: one of the more well-made domestic dubbels I've had -

I had this can at the Cove in York, enjoyed chilled in a pint glass.

The color is dark amber with thin head of beige with rocky frothy look. The clarity is hazed as of an unfiltered beer with fine bead. The retention is good and lace sticks. The smell is very nutty with a slight tropical ester like dates with light spiced accent from the yeast and mild alcohol aroma. The feel is good semi-dry spiced texture with thin body for the style, but not too dry or phenolic moderately carbonated.

The flavor has an element of fruit with semi-spicy yeast giving the ale more of a light taste with toasted grain taste in the background. The flavor has fruity yeast with an herbal tinge of hops perhaps, but the malt is lacking in this for my taste. Overall not a bad beer but if you want a dubbel more representative of the style there are better options, the drinkability is good overall.
