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.

A good, rich Belgian beer. Only found it in a liter bottle, so I split it with friends. Great sipper, very rich brown color and sweet flavor. Compared to a Belgian, in a blind taste test, most people wouldnt know if it was imported or made in Baltimore.

solidfunk (3003) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2014
A little bit of a wooden tinny taste to this one. Some sense of barrel. Pours brownish red with ok head and lacing. Finishes with some light sweetness and a little astringency. Can at American Ice.

vlan1 (151) - Eastern Shore, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2014
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.

smaynard6000 (551) - Apopka, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2014
12oz can. Pours a dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, heavily banana. Fig and plum notes in this, bit of clove. Some raisin. Mostly sweet with some sourness in the finish. Not bad.

Wittales (564) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Appearance was hazy reddish amber with lasting creamy off white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are brown sugar, grass, some citrus, dough yeasts. Taste are spicy lemony chinook hops, grass, hints of toffee malts, no alcohol. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium body, lasting grassy mineralic dryish finish. A strange brew, hopefully a bad can.

Draft at Koopers. Pours hazy gold with slight white head. Aroma is bread, grass, lemon. Taste is typical dubbel - sweet (not too sweet), yeast/dough presence, slightly spicy. Nothing exceptional but decent nonetheless.

jmcgavin12 (427) - Madison, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Clear medium amber pour with aromas of caramel, berry, and slight yeasty and malt. Taste is balanced with a moderate sweet body and a slight hoppy finish. Oily finish and overall a pretty good beer.

jsquire (3337) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Deep amber color out of the can with a short lived off white head. Sweet, fruity nose. Very nice abbey dubbel with lots of dark, ripe fruit notes, candy sugar and noticeable alcohol when you exhale.

Nice thick head over copper malt. Nice mix of subtle spice underlying a hoppy malt blend.
