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

3.56/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a lightly hazy reddish-brown color. The amber-colored head is fairly tall initially, with a somewhat dense, foamy texture. Retention is solid, and quite a few splotchy rings of lace cling to the glass.

S: Quite sweet up front. Toffee and caramel is prominent. Quite a bit of orchard fruitiness as well, with notes of golden apples and ripe pears, with faint banana tones. Some leafy and herbal hop aroma is also detectable. Faint spice and alcohol aromas are also present.

T: A malty, sweet beer initially. Caramel, toffee, and Belgian sugar take the fore. Hops arrive midway through to add some balancing bitterness and a bit of leafy flavor. Fruity esters are noticeable, with the same orchard and raisin notes as in the nose. Spicy notes arrive later on, along with some alcohol.

M: Medium body. Actually a bit light for the style, to me. Carbonation is smooth and on the lighter side of medium. There's a bit of alcohol heat here. The mouthfeel does linger a bit into the finish.

O: This is a solid American take on a Belgian dubbel. It grew on me a bit as I drank it, but it never wowed me. It seemed a bit scattered compared to some of the better versions of the style, but it was still enjoyable.

4.01/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: a beautiful dark amber with a bit of lacy foam on top

S: not a whole lot here...maybe caramel, raisin, a bit of the alcohol coming through as well

T: similar to other reviews I perused this is where Resurrection makes its living. A nice carmel, sugar, dark fruit flavor at the front of the mouth then slowly morphs into this great herbal hop bitterness. The hops really cling to the back of the tongue and at a new dimension to the beer.

M: really hefty body,creamy almost. Really sticks to the tongue

O: really a great beer from this brewery and now I really want to try more of their beers.
