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.

Poured dark with a light smell of chocolate. Tastes like the bastard child of a chimay red crossed with an affligem dubble. Chocolate undercurrents with cinnamon and citrus. A great dubble.

Batch#24 I enjoyed the shear yeasty pleasure for this Reserve. It reminds me of the complex smell of my grandparents cellar in southern France. There is something solid and ancient about this formula. Nice one!

Average, nothing special. Aroma a little weak. Decent though.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2002
Big head, medium reddish body, fruit with good spice in the nose, lighter color and more clarity than I’d expect from a dubbel. Distinct alcohol flavor, carrying through to the finish, with spices and medium sweetness. Some good maltiness and perhaps a slight woodiness, fairly noticeable finishing bitterness. This doesn’t seem well-balanced for the style; too much bittering and the alcohol is not well enough hidden. Leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Thoroughly unimpressive.

Panzuriel (1407) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2002
Wine like and some whoight sour aroma. Red hued liquid with creamy foam. Tastes fruity and sour in a bad way. The after taste lingers a little too long for my liking.

Light brown. Nice head. Very fruity, estery aroma. Medium-to-full body. Malty. Some chocolate. Some alcohol aroma and flavor. Reminds my of a less complex Westy 12. Still a damn good beer. They’re making some nice ones up there in Maine!

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 17, 2002
Tawny in color (chill haze). Very estery/spicy in aroma. This beer tastes like Allagash’s White Beer, albeit a dark version. Spice your double like a wit.

Gunpowder, cocoa undertones, a bit of alkalinity, some heather aromas, Chimay yeasty qualities, good stiff foam. I’m in love. Thanks, Jeff!!

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 it’s style. But a good beer, if not outstanding, nontheless.
