COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Allagash Dubbel Reserve boasts a dark malty taste. The finish is dry with subtle hints of chocolate and nuts. With time, Allagash Dubbel Reserve will mature in the bottle and acquire distinctive port and sherry characteristics.

Rich ruddy brown color. Very little head, turning to a white haze on top of the beer as you drink. Not as complex or full bodied as i was hoping, but pretty good. Has an interesting olive taste at the very end of the finish. Not bad, but different. I was a little disappointed, but overall it’s a decent beer.

Hazy dark brown with a hint of red, smells of fruits (lemons). The brew has a real bite to the taste, which is followed by the lemony taste, and leaves an after taste is very strong and flavorful, and no hint of a alcohol taste is this high ABV brew.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2002
This is an alright beer. It has a very woody aroma, and even tastes of cork at times. The body doesn’t quite have that silky smoothness that many Belgian ales have. Not bad, but missing something.

jbak (111) - Torrington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 7, 2002
Batch #28. Very nice dubbel. Strong head with good lacing. Spicy nose, mostly spice in the palate with a bit of malt, hops and alcohol blended in, as is typical for belgians. Again, very nice but not exceptional for a Belgian.

Bottle from batch #32. A nice dark brown/amber color with a light brown head. The flavors are deep and hit just right.

Large white head. Very mild flavor with a rich pleasant aftertaste. Not very spicy or complex, but smooth and drinkable.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 15, 2002
Batch #30. Aroma holds some light clove, cocoa, yeast and dark malt. Opaque chestnut brown color with a goodly amount of bottle conditioning and a lasting creamy head. Mellow flavor profile, with some dark, bready malt, chocolate, nut and lightly estery yeast. Such a subtle beer. Finishes with a lightly acidic fruitiness. Seems to become most expressive at around 60-65 F. Overall a pleasant beer to just kick back and sip for an hour or so.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2004 A huge sundae of dried fruit with brown sugar sprinkled on top...Burnt chocolate syrup, roasted nuts, loads of dark fruit and a drop of Costa Rican rum for good measure...A bit too carbonated and dry for my tastes in Dubbel...
