look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is dark copper, head is huge on the last glug, had to slurp some foam. Head color is light tan very nice lacing and it lingers very thick, about 3/4 inch.

Smell is more malty than yeasty, some toast, maybe biscuit, caramel flavors; yeast flavors are slight phenol and light banana and clove.

Taste is more malty than yeasty, yeast flavor is off, slightly astringent. Malt flavors are slightly thin, dry with some caramely flavors; yeast flavors from the nose come through, light banana clove.

Mouthfeel is sweeter upfront quickly overtaken by drying qualities, some lingering yeast and sweet flavors, drying on the tongue.

Overall, a slightly light dubbel, maybe headed towards saison dryness more so than dubbel sweetness and yeastiness.

12 oz can into tulip. 06/15/13 printed on the can. not sure if it is a canned on or drink by. so far tastes like a canned on.

A: super hazy. orange/reddish body. rich color. head is frothy and big. orange and red mix with white. good retention and lacing.

S: a lot of caramel. very sweet. good fruitiness, all dark. plums and red grapes.

T: a little metallic at first, but it doesn't last. big time sweetness. lots of brown sugar. lingering sweetness and a mild yeast bitterness bite.

M: solid carb level on a medium body.

D: besides the slight metallic notes, this is a pretty good dubbel. good sweetness, fruitiness. not too shabby.

Served in a chalice

A- pours a dark & murky reddish purple color with a one-finger creamy off-white head that reduces to a small layer skimming the top

S- lots of dark fruit aromas up front with notes of dried cherries, plum and fig. Sweet brown sugary notes with a touch of alcohol closes it out

T- dark fruit notes follow the aromas with big flavors of fig and prune. Mid-palate provides a bit of caramels listed brown sugar sweetness that continues through to the finish with a bit of alcohol

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel with a crisp finish

O- an enjoyable Dubbel and a good effort on an American attempt of the style

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.

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.
