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.

Nice light head. Almost a smoky, burnt caramel flavor. Nice and flavorful, but a little on the dry side. Nice beer, though not what I expected.

Surprising, this is a refreshing beer. Wonderful, chewy, dark and flavorful. Enjoyed this beer.

TAR (2441) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 Aged one year: Aroma is very clean and fresh with green apples, ginger?, butterscotch and toasted malts. Bead is very creamy, off-tan with nice retention and stick power. Slightly nutty. A little light for a dubbel yet the extremely creamy and moderately dry palate compensate quite nicely. Very different from its 12 oz. counterpart. I had this a few hours after dinner and it was surprisingly appetizing. This is the finest dubbel you are going to find outside of Belgian.

Pours deep thick and brown, just the way it tastes. Tasted a lot like Hersheys syrup in skim milk, and I donít like chocolate milk. Bitter finish. Not something Iíd look for again.

very nice color.. it has a chocolate flavor to it, quite sweet, a hit of fruit as well. This is a very interesting brew, donít know that I would classify it as a belgian though..

Sweet and malty. Delicious but Iíll bet it really come into its own in six months.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 Batch 13, in my cellar for about 7 months. This beer is really good. Lacks the complexity I have tasted in other dubbels. Buttery and a little weak in the malt area. The yeast on the bottom of the bottle improved the aroma and taste greatly by adding a nice fruity side to the brew.

I liked this a lot better when I stopped thinking that it didnít fit the style that well. Itís full dark and a bit fruity.

An excellent drink. Itís Chimay Grande Reserve without the heavy carbonation. Furthermore, itís small local production guarantees a quality product at every sitting. Well Done.

This is not one of my favourite styles, but this is a pretty good interpretation. Almost burgundy coloured, yeasty apple/plum aroma and a nice mellow, fruity flavour. Medium bodied.
