3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Max’s Baltimore. Poured a copper golden color. Slight spiciness but pretty sweet. Pretty good but a some heavier malt presence would overcome the sweetness & balance it out a little

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Got it on draft at the Brewer’s Art (in Baltimore of course) at the recommendation of a German friend. Was a pretty decent dubbel. Lovely coppery color and smooth taste. Despite the description, it was a little too sweet.

On draft at Max’s Belgian Fest 08, poured a cloudy light copper color with a sweet fruity aroma. Tastes a sweet fruity flavor as well, with several fruity flavors through out. Complex and very good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 Draft at Max’s. This Resurrection tasted much different than those I had in years past. This Resurrection pours a cloudy amber with a small head and a lot of lacing. It is much sweeter than the original, and the bitterness that was a mainstay is all but gone. I tasted pear, with a light, sweet finish. I am going to have another at The Brewer’s Art to compare and will update the rating.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 Draft at Friscos Grille in Columbia MD. Pours a copper amber with an off white head. Faint aroma of caramel and esters. Initial flavor of caramel, dark fruits, and citrus that is quickly overpowered by band aid phenols. Some like that phenolic character. Unfortuntately I do not.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore. My friend I was with ordered an Anchor Steam and I ordered this. I wasnt that drunk at the time, but when both beers were poured and handed to us by the bartender, I still couldnt tell which was which until I tasted them both. That being said, this didnt really stand out as an abbey dubbel. It was easy drinking and went down smooth with the pulled pork nachos I consumed while drinking it, but the complexity was seriously lacking. No hint of any belgian yeast which is strange. Mildly dissapointing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft, at Tria Fermentation School (8/8/07). Poured reddish amber, with a thin off-white head. Sugary sweet aroma, with caramel, dark fruit, with some herbs and hops. Flavor is sweet, almost cloying, with candi sugar and some fruit. some hops evident in the finish. I really wanted to like this, but i found it way too sweet. I’ll give it another shot someday...
