Not particularly well balanced, but its tasty. Lots of candy sugar, molasses and dark fruit with a syrupy mouthfeel. Tried this at the DC beerfest with Jess, Mark, and Matt in 2014.

Back up in your ass with the Resurrection! This one from a can, enjoy by 5/27/2014. Pours dark scarlet, dusky with large rocky-soapy beige head that laces. Nose light caramel with sweet yeast character, heavy ester and phenolic development.Taste is sweet, even strongly sweet, with a brown-sugar and Munich-type middle, very malty with medium depth, low bitterness edging up toward medium but that baby’s as smooth as silk. Some lighter burned and roasted notes in the bg, wood and earth only developing just before the finish. Very faint berries, plums, with mild tar and subtle tannins at the back, minerally throughout. Melanoidin conent seems short-cutted and the caramel leaning a little crystallish; hops are refined and fresh but poke their heads up just a little too much -- don’t want to detract from the more interesting stuff going on with malt and yeast. Medium body a touch thin. It’s a greenhorn working its way up to master, but still an enjoyable one with good character.

On draft poured into pint glass. Dark brown color with moderate white head. Aroma of fresh brown bread. Brown bready malt flavor. Faint grassy hop notes. Not very much of the fruityness you expect from a dubbel. Kinda meh.
