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.

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 (3138) - 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).

Draft at Friscos. Muddy amber body with a small, off-white head. Lasting cover. The aroma is cloves, plums and candi sugar. The flavor is candi, golden raisins, some caramel and banana. Medium/light body with a slightly watery texture and a dry finish.

TheBeerLover (1025) - DC Metro Area, USA - FEB 14, 2006
Outstanding domestic example of a Trappist dubbel. Pours to a beautiful, deep caramel color, with a thick, and creamy white head, and a lively carbonation. Lots of good caramel, sweet malt aroma, paired with some earthy yeast, and hints of pepper. The palate is firm, with lots of good sweet and caramel malt flavor, paired with flavors of burnt candi sugar. This beer finishes with great malt flavor up front, then ends with a mild alcohol, burn that lingers. Outstanding beer. Was a phenomenal match with the molasses BBQ beef brisket sandwich on white corn bread, and whipped sweet potatoes. A must try beer, from one of America’s greatest brewpubs.

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Good, solid, tasty and flavorful. Nice ruby amber hue, a slightly sticky body, fruity essence on the nose and sweet malt on the tongue. Easy & comfortable, not overbearing or immense. Still, somehow not full enough for the style to be fantastic.
