First had in May of 2016.

Tried it again on 12/03/16 in a 25 oz. bottle.

Nice legs/head/smell. Better taste than earlier this year.

Maybe this one was fresher? Definitely had better from Allagash - I'm thinking "malty" beers are not my thing.

Maybe a little dark for me I'm a fan of allagash triple and white which are more suited to my taste.

I've loved every offering from Allagash until I tried this one. I love Dubbel's so this disappointed me. After it washed down I had to make sure I didn't bite my lip or cut it on my glass because all I could taste was a metallic medicine aftertaste.

Pours dark ambery-red with a dense white head

Smell-Yeast and dark fruits

Taste-malty and yeasty sweetness gives way to dried fruit and finishes with some Esther banana flavor.

Mouthfeel-medium body with medium to medium-high carbonation.

Really good dubbel that gives some Belgians a run for their money

Pours a cloudy ruddy brown with a very small amount of cream colored head. Even smaller retention leaves no lacing. The aroma is like brown bread and spices. The taste though is a little muddled and lacking. No off flavors but just slightly dull. The body is a little lighter, smoother with just a little carbonation.

Appearance- Deep Red/brown/mahogony in color. Pours just under a one inch head, which is surprising given the typical carbonation in a belgian dubbel.

Aroma- Dark fruits, sweet malts, and candi sugar.

Taste- Lighter tasting dark fruits at first followed by mild belgian yeast "twang", and finishing with dark fruits and sweet chocolate.

Feel- Medium bodied, medium/high carbonation, and a clean finish.

Overall- Great dubbel with all the characteristics you'd want and expect.
