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.

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.

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.

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.

A great beer, but don’t forget Brewer’s Art’s other selections. These brews are very different, and very good. Brewer’s Art seems different from it’s hop-heavy competition, with more emphasis on subtle flavor. Overall, a good approach...

Full on butterscotch diacetyl aroma with plenty of fruity aroma. Hazy copper coloured body with a low, off white head that recedes to ring. Butterscotch flavour with grainy malts and fair bitterness. Medium body with moderate, pointy, sharp carbonation. Sampled at Kennett Square Brewfest. 2005.

Rastacouere (6123) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2005
Enormous frothy, rocky off-white head lasts a while atop the cloudy orange pour. The rather vegetal hop may not be the fest fit for caramel and honey laden hops that would almost fit a barleywine were it not of the estery, fruity yeastiness (pear, pomegranate, pineapple, banana etc). It gains a bit of floweriness as it warms, but oily woodiness and vegetal profile take too much room for my enjoyment to culminate. Medium body, tart, citric lemonade feel toward the end.

Pours a clear orange amber color with a thin offwhite head. Aroma of malt and fruits (pumpkin?). Flavor of malt and fruits with a little something that feels quite unpleasant. The body is light with an oily texture and lively carbonation.

The Lure:
Caramel malt sweetness and apricot fruitiness are on ice because of the buttery diacetyl and DMS veggie heist. Towering foam clings onto the sides of the glass, but cannot shield the problems revealed.

The Festivities:
Bountiful caramel maltiness benefit from the citrusy, orangey hoppy presence in the back. Ample carbonation and hop bitterness dry out the all-out candi sugar, and thankfully there is no sign of the aforementioned diacetyl and DMS. Either this keg was in the process of turning, or my nose was confused in its languages.

Nostalgia has its pros and cons.
