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.

ThisWangsChung (826) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Reviewed 12/29/2012. 12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a gorgeous hazy amber color with a nice stream of carbonation rising up from the center. The head is a thick, frothy two finger offwhite color that retains itself quite well. As it slowly recedes, a beautiful but slight layer of lacing is left on the glass. This is everything a good dubbel should look like, period. S: Classically bready, with a great balance between yeast and malts. There’s also a nice amount of candied sugar, apple, pear, and chocolate. While subtle, it gives off a nice vibe of apple pie. T: Sweet sugars come first, before transitioning gradually into a neutral, bready finish. A little on the simple side, but the balance here is top caliber. A faint touch of hops give it a perfect amount of bitterness to neutralize the candied sugar. Given a chance to warm up, a modicum of complexity makes itself known - and it’s just enough to keep the beer interesting. M: Clean, dry, and - dare I say - refreshing. Palate tingling astringency appears on the aftertaste, giving off said refreshment ability instead of weighing it down. A great beer to savor in spite of its initially light impression. O: Really hard to complain about this one. This hits a nice balance between being clean and being complex. An excellent example of a ’subtle’ beer.

Keg pour at Powder Keg Beer & Chili Festival. Aroma is Belgian yeast, fruity esters. Appearance is hazy brown pour with a little sparkle, tiny white head, nice lacing.Taste is as aroma--Belgian yeast and medium sweet citrus/fruity. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, lively carbonation. Overall, a nice representative of the style and one I will surely have again.

rgf001 (242) - München, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2015
On tap at Munich Tap House. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, toast but not as complex as Westmalle. Yeast esters and phenols are subdued, too clean. Does not smell like a belgian yeast fermentation. Appearance is perfect for a dubbel. Body is thinner than expected. Flavors of caramel, toast, plum, raisin, with yeast flavors very subdued. Dry finish. A different yeast or higher fermentation temperature may improve this beer.

Changed (427) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber, off white head. No lacing. Aroma is spice, slightly fruity. Flavor is nutty, malty, dark fruits, caramel, bitterness to finish. Kind of all over the place at the same time. Not a typical dubbel at all. Not a bad thing though.

SinH4 (1227) - Garching, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2015
Beautiful amber color with big beige head. Aroma is spicy, dark malts, Schwarzbrot. Taste is Schwarzbrot, good amount of spices, but the unusual ones. Can’t quite describe them. A bit of spruces maybe? Soft carbonation, feels almost like a Weizen. Slight tartness, but the dry malt dominates.

Really great beer, malts and nutty flavor and aroma. Shy oak big walnut some macadamia nut. Very enjoyable. Only thing that doesn’t put it in 4.5+ is it lacks the fruitiness. Anyway still awesome brew.

Pours a hazy dark amber from a bottle, thick off-white head that retains. Aroma of vanilla, oak. Tastes like dark Belgian candi sugar, fading to some slight chocolate and hazelnut notes, good mix of bitterness in the end, finishes dry. Good beer.
