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.

Blairgus (2566) - California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
24 nov 2013, can. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Peppery, faintly yeasty. Doesn't taste like 7% so doesn't seem strong enough for a double. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Clean malty base, with lower malty sweetness that average for an abbey dubbel, light spicy yeast, dark fruity notes, and a clean dry finish. Probably a bit off-style, but in a good way.

Appearance: Clear copper to mahogany body with a creamy light tan head.
Aroma: Hints of sweet malts and clove, but very restrained.

Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Very boring. It’s very muted, nothing stands out.

radio_nowhere (754) - Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Can into Trappist glass. Dark ruby brown color with off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, candy sugar, dark fruit, citrus and some spices. Taste adds brown sugar, somewhat floral notes and some hop bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slight bitterness, dry with a crisp finish. Somewhat light for a dubbel but very drinkable, alcohol hidden dangerously well.

9er (74) - Maryland, USA - JUL 28, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 A dayum good blend of hops and malt to round out the subtle sweet herbal crisp brew. Full bodied, floral with minimal cereal and a vague hint of resin and slight bitters to compete with the semi-sweet but quite mature nature of this recipe. The alcohol is noticeable and earns my respect.

Bottle. Sweet candy and subtle citrus aroma. Hazy amber body with thin head. Flavor begins sweet with candied malts, plum and hints of citrus and yeast with a hoppy bitter finish.
