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 great beer, but don’t forget Brewer’s Art’s other selections. These brews are very different, and very good. Brewer’s Art seems different from it’s hop-heavy competition, with more emphasis on subtle flavor. Overall, a good approach...

Can poured into a pint glass at home. Pours deep amber with fluffy light off-white head that lingers a bit. Taste is earthy, spicy, and malty. Medium bodied, great carbonation making it a real smooth drinker. A Dubbel done very well, and I was digging it.

jgb9348 (5092) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Rich, very hazy amber coloured body with a copper glow and a nice, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of malt, grain, caramel, light citrus hops, some raisins and a touch of apples - nice and relatively sweet smelling without any perceived yeast or pungency. Medium-bodied; Assertive hop flavour of citrus and light pine with a touch of honey right behind and a relatively strong malt flavour with grain and rye coming through. Aftertaste doesn’t show much body at all, no yeast and only a dry hop character with a touch of grain. Overall, a very interesting beer for the style - not like a typical dubbel at all, but not a bad beer - just different - more hops, less body, no yeast and a grain flavour make this decidedly american, so does the can! I sampled this twelve ounce can (I like having traditionally belgian styles in cans) purchased from Whole Foods in Washington (Foggy Bottom, I St), DC on 04-April-2014 for US$2,49 sampled at home in Washington on 09-September-2014.
