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.

3fourths (8603) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Draft at Max’s. Dark clear copper red with a white head. Diacetyl butter nose full of coarse malts. Buttery, infected flavord dark fruit - oranges and peach rind. Hoppy and fruity, I can see some IPA characteristics in this beer, not so much the abbey dubbel aspects. Overall it’s not very good.

Draft @ Frisco Grille in Columbia, MD. Pours a deep amber hue. Sticky lacing with an off-white head. Caramel malt up front with fruity esters and spicy yeast. warm, dry finish. Not bad at all.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Sampled on 2/16/07 on cask at Max’s 3rd Annual Belgian Beer Festival: Pours a mostly transparent dark copper orange with a well-lacing off-white head. Aroma of lightly toasty and sweet caramel malts with a hint of earthiness. Body starts with a fairly full and sweet caramely fruity malty character with some earthy bitter notes and a smooth, toasty malty finish. Decent authenticity and drinkability.

on tap at 3rd North Bar in Philly which is near Abbaye another great philly beer bar. have to say, I know there are a lot of high ratings for this beer below but I personally hated this one. makes me wondered if the tap was gone wrong or something. it tasted overwhelming of malts and hops. just and overload of bitterness. very yeasty, in the nose and taste, ru, raisins - all just really strong flavors that didn’t go well together like when you blend colors and get one of those ugly green-brown blends. well thats a metaphor for the unification of the rum, yeasty, raising, bitter hops, fruity, caramel, sweet ingredients. yuk.

(draught at restaurant) Nice amber with small off-white head. Sweetish malt and yeast aroma. Flavor of sweet malt, yeast, fruit

Tap at mcgraths. Sweet, bit of a sugary flavor, wasn’t as flavorful as I though but it wasn’t bad.

good beer at a good bar. hard kick to the sobriety. I’d like to try some of their other brews to compare but this one is a keeper.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 16, 2007
Draft @ Racers in Baltimore. Slightly hazy with a deep amber hue. Clinging creamy head. Medium bodied with a slight yeasty aroma. Initial flavor is a smokey peaty malt flavor. The caramel and cocoa hit the palate next. Then a touch of fruity esters. Finishes with a warming toasty dry hop flavor. Wonderfully blended but with a great layered complexity. Touch of citrus yeast zest somewhere in the middle. Plays over the palate. Well integrated and delicious.

As dubbels go, this product is rather unique in my experience. Taste starts sweet, and becomes intensely bitter, like an overextracted tea.... but I mean that in the best way possible.

Another delicious beer sampled at my first visit to Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore. The beer poured a dark amber-orange color with a big tan head. The aroma was of sweet malts, featuring caramel and fruit notes. It started off sweet, but had a nice bitter finish, where the taste of alcohol was slightly present. A very wet beer with light carbonation and a good alcohol contribution.
