COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
During the fermentation of the first batch of this Abbey-style dubbel, the yeast «died» and was «resurrected» by brewer Chris Cashell. This beer is not unlike those that certain Belgian monks have been brewing since the 16th century. Made with five types of barley malt and lots of sugar, this beer is quite strong and flavorful, without being too sweet.

On tap at KSBF ’06... Appears an orange tinted amber with a lush, off-white head. Little pieces of lacing are left. Smell is of a lightly sweet, mildly spiced dubbel with a yeasty doughiness, caramel, sweet vanilla, and fruit highlighted by black grapes. Taste is of the aromas. A nice change of pace from the candi-sugar sweet dubbels that overtake the yeast and grain that are the backbone of the style. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, only slightly sweet, along with a lingering of grapes and raisins that make for a light version of a dubbel. I’ve had this several times in the past with no rating to speak of. I’m glad they brought this one to Kennett. It’s such an easy drinking dubbel.

Medium red out of the tap, with quite a large head - yeast, brown sugar and christmas cookie-like spices dominate the aroma - a nice warming herbal/spice quality is the best thing about this beer - not overly sweet, as can happen with this style - actually a little dry, with chocolate notes coupling well with the warming spices - candi sugar comes through, with some caramel and plum - quite good.

Draft.clear orange with nice head. Nutty/malty smell. Buttery nutty taste with clean sweet finish. At 1st I didn’t think much of this beer, but as continued to drink it it become quite good.

Definitely coloring liek most Abbey Ale’s I;ve encountered, however, servered in a lager pint glass did not do it justice. Ended up being more bitter than I would have hoped. Chewry sour caramel flavors, with some fruits such as apple and grape. I’d rather try this at the Baltimore downtown location than a local bar where I got this. Nothing spectacular, but a good attempt. (Tap 09/01/2006)

Not as dark as I would have thought. Fruity with a bit of bitterness, but also some buttery notes. Yeasty. Good but not quite up to the Ozzy. (on tap at restaurant)

aracauna (3039) - Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Clear, stained cherrywood. Very little head. Really comes across like a brown ale. Faint aroma. Lacks much of the yeast deriven character of the style. Not bad, but a little boring.

On tap Max’s Taphouse. Pours a murky copper with some head and lacing. Big fruity nose. The flavor has fruit and spices with notes of brown sugar. Nice beer.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2008 Draft at Max’s. Hazed brown. Small white head. Nose is fruity and candyish with yeast notes and light floral aromas. Taste is sweet with lots of fruit, Belgian yeast, light flowers and mild hops. Body is creamy and rather light. Finishes with more fruit notes, sweet malts, some candyish notes and light flowery flavors. (7,3,7,3,13)

Adding this here for now. Draft at Max’s 72 Hour Belgian Beer Fest. This was on cask actually and was called the Speciale Resurrection. Not sure if it is different or not. Brown body. Nose is sweet malts, caramel, candi sugar and yeast. Taste is more caramel, soft cocoa, sweet malts, and candi sugar but with less yeast. Body is slick with a mild chewiness and not much carbonation, obviously. Caramel, sweet malts, light yeast and soft fruits make up the finish. (7,3,7,4,14).
