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.

Dark amber color, minimal head in glass when poured from bottle. No lacing. Fruity taste and a off tasting finish and aftertaste.

Aquilo (556) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Brown with a thick creamy head. Aroma is nuts and co2. Flavor is caramel and wheat bread. Good all around, but somehow I was hoping for more.

Underdogs88 (119) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Notes of caramel, toast & raisons. Appearance is a cloudy dark amber with an off-white head good retention. Flavor contains notes of cardboard. Oxidation is evident. Caramel flavors are present with dried fruit flavors. Balance is on the malt side. Mouthfeel is medium full with medium high carbonation. Overall,the beer tastes old. I'm sure it would taste better if it was fresher. I'll give it another try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"somewhat port-like in it’s initail sweetness and complexity, this is a tasty dubbel. chocolate and ripe fruit, a little dough and belgian yeasty spice, and barely noticed alcohol. better than the triple or grand cru."

gripweed57 (755) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Deep copper color topped by a large rocky beige head. Fruit toasted malt nose is nutty with notes of cocoa. Flavor is more nuttiness with notes of cherry and milk chocolate. Subtle yeasty character imparts an earthy dried fruitiness. Silky smooth with nice complexity. Enjoyable.

Pours a dark brown with a mild head. The prominent smell is raison and plum. The beer tastes sweet and the finish is similar to a sweet port.
