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.

Light aroma and flavors. More like a session beer than a Belgian. A decent effort though short of gaining my wish to acquire anymore.

This beer poured a very dark reddish amber color and formed a small bubbly white head that left only a small amount of lace. An aroma of malt and spice and a touch of caramel. The flavor was of malt, a hit of caramel and spice that vanished quickly. Also a hint of the alcohol in the aroma and taste. The finish was very light and dry and void of of any of the tastes and aroma before. I was hesistant to try this due to what I heard about it. While not a bad of beer as others have said, it is not as good as some of their other beers and weak for itís style. But a good beer, if not outstanding, nontheless.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2003 Cloudy reddish-brown in color, huge sticky foamy head, leaves a clingy lacing in my glass, a lot of floaties. Malty fruity yeasty bubblegum aromas, fruity caremel apple banana flavors, medium-full body with a creamy mouthfeel, finishes sugary sweet, a good solid dubbel.

RE-Rate 7.28.02- Canít believe i rated this without comments the first time! A finely crafted dubbel with essences of oak, sherry, dried apples, plums, chocolate, and a hint of candied sugar. A very complex and well rounded dubbel that improves in aroma and flavor as the beer warms. At $5 a 750 this is a steal. I just need the self control to lay down a couple of bottles for aging.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 18, 2002
Obscured copper with tons of suspended particles. Thick, clingy and compact tan head. Minimal carbonation. Damn if I didnít smell peanut butter for a second there. Some earthy, spicy, savory aromas with brown sugar mingling about. Mellow and light on the tongue, almost cask like. Medium light body. Earthy and herbal followed by a fruity undertone that rises long after the swallow. Hints of tartness mixed in with the relatively dry body. I like the feel of this. Quite the interesting flavors going on, and this is well over 2 years aged. Funny how the ABV is higher than the Dubbel Reserve? Anyway, has an escaping dark brown sugar sweetness that builds towards the finish. Malts are dryish and counter the sweetness well. Finishes richer, a bit yeasty and mildly chalky. Sure itís an off the wall Belgian Double but age this and see how drastically it changes.

Ernest (6485) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2005 12oz bottle (Dubbel Ale, 7.0%). Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium orange-brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of raisin, toffee, hints of orange and cinnamon. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Pleasant if restrained aroma. A bit disappointing in the mouth experience, though...a bit thin and uninspiring.

Color and aroma built up my expectations for a nice Belgian knock off.A little dry for a double, not bad, just not as complex as I hoped.

rather raw batch#28: onery looking hulk in itís steel headgear and potato masher bottle. pours a burley groundhog brown, murky; head was like a thin deli slice of smoked provolone, but it sank into the depths even as a steady stream of ascending bubbles kept the surface roiling in a very tiny tempest. like a dunkelweizen, big yeast aroma, cedar cigar wrapper, graham, alcohol. flavor of sweet malt and iced lemon tea, bristly carbonation is like little scrubbing bubbles. by last pour, itís too prickly and citrus sweet. this young groundhog should have seen itís shadow and stayed cellared a while longer. taking a tip from venom,( opps, i mean VENOM), iíll cellar a few í28s and let íem mature.

Nice deep color. It lacked something that otherís have. But it is still not a bad beer.
