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.

radio_nowhere (906) - 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.

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.

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2013
Can. Pours a clear light brown body with a nice frothy beige head that had excellent retention. The nose is really pretty nice, a great mix of chocolate and dark fruits with a nice level of yeastiness, which is quite unexpected from a canned Dubbel. Smells pretty delicious really. The flavor is just a bit on the thin side, but at the same time, it makes it very easily drinkable. No hint of alcohol, but then I see it’s seven percent, so that’s no surprise now. Light with some slightly sweet dark fruity figgy notes. Finishes with some light chocolate and dark caramel notes. Lighter bodied for the style with light fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice drinkable beer, especially for a style that I don’t always get that into.

On tap at the hard rock Baltimore. Poured a clear amber brown color with a thin white top and decent lacing. Taste of caramel malts, sweet malts, fruit, and brown sugar with a tiny floral finish. Medium body, medium-high carbonation.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Location: 12 oz can from State Line, 2/8/13

Aroma: The nose is sweet malts, yeast, caramel, brown sugar, some spice, and a little hop
Appearance: It pours a dark reddish-orange color with a small beige head and some light, drippy lace
Flavor: The flavor is malty and yeasty with some clear spice notes, and a bit of hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, with too much carbonation, and a somewhat poor mouthfeel
Overall Impression: Any Abbey Dubbel in a can? You don’t see that too often, but I like it. As for the beer, it is fine, but I wasn’t too happy with it to be honest. This one just feels a little off overall.
