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.

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.

kramer (4903) - 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 (3859) - 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.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Can. Nice reddish amber color. Malt and caramel backbone. Some spice. Kind of tingled going down. Hop and alcohol were disguised quite masterfully

Had this one many times at the brewpub, which is a great place, but rated from a can. It is a decent dubbel with the dark fruits but it is a bit thin and on the bitter side for me.
