Tasty, flavorful, and a good standard for a dubbel. Nice reddish brown color, medium large bubbled head. Good malt character, not too sweet, mainly dry. A little gravitation towards the dark fruits (raisins), but more towards the wine like character. Little apple on the nose and tongue.

Thinner than I’d expect for the style, the basic maltly and fruity tastes, with a slight hint of sweet apples. I like it.

Pours a dark rusty caramel color with a finger or two of eggshell foam. Nose has a mix of dark dried fruit, belgian candi sugar, toasted malt and undertones of fig and cocoa dust. The palate follows nicely with a soft caramel nutty backbone and layers of dried fruit, cherry, fig, date, raisin and a hint of round dark cocoa lingers into the finish.

Allagash Dubbel is my introduction to the Maine brewery’s Belgian-style ales. I can see what the hype is all about. Dubbel has a vibrant, dry fruitiness that I’ve not encountered in a beer of this style. These vinous characteristics work wonderfully with the sweet, toasty malt flavors of chocolate, caramel, nuts, and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is bright, rich, warm, and smooth - fantastic. This brew is a must for people who love hearty, malty ales and Belgian enthusiasts.

Just when I thought I had uploaded everything I’ve had by Allagash, I find these notes. Here goes. This has always been poured into a chalice. The appearance was a nice dark hazy brown color with a thin one finger white foamy head that dissipates within about a minute and leaves some light somewhat foamy lacing. The smell started off with a light Belgian spice, bready yeastiness, light apples and then slightly shifts towards an earthy raisin quality. The taste was sweet and spicy through the previously mentioned flavors. It left a long lingering sweet and spicy aftertaste which lead to the finish. On the palate, this one sat at/about a medium in body. There was a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still not bad for the style. Overall, I say this was a good Dubbel. The best thing about it was the smell as it had a lot going on with it.

Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a hazy orange brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, brown sugar, yeast, banana, a mild nutty character, some bitterness to the finish. Solid enough American dubbel.

Lots of head and a gorgeous red/brown color. Light bubbly mouth feel. Not much by the way of smell. The taste is just a bit tangy with lots of malt. There’s a good hint of various fruit

ScipioA (262) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Deep old-penny copper body with a large tan head. The aroma is dominated by fruity yeast, but with a solid bready malt backing. The flavor is a little more interesting, with some pleasant toasty caramel joining the fruits on the nose. Surprisingly strong alcohol presence for 7.0 abv. Fairly thick body with a very dry finish. Solid dubbel, especially for the price.
