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.

12oz can in a plastic cup. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some pale and caramel malts, light hops, and some cloves/bananas. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A decent dubbel, but sort of light.

Scopey (9735) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015. It pours clear brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, toasty, bitter-sweet, raisin, sultana, spice and toffee. The taste is smooth, bitter-sweet, spicy, caramel, raisin, sultana, leather, charred wood and mild acidity with a dry, spiced finish. Medium+ body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A bit watery for what it is. Forgettable.
