Superstar (45) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2003
Pours with a huge frothy head and aroma of candied sweetness and a bit musty and earthy too. Taste is big on the earthiness, as the sweetness takes a seat on the bench....seemingly in contrast to the aroma. Finish is bitter and slightly harsh.

VAYankee (347) - Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2003
Dark brown and cloudy, with a small head. Nice sweet but weak aroma. The flavor is a little earthy and yeasty, followed by a weak (mildly sour) finish.

TheTsunami (162) - Arizona, USA - MAR 24, 2003
Not nearly as impressed by this as some of the other Allagash offerings. Dark brown color with a strong white head. Aroma was spice filled. The overwhelming flavor to me was one of pepper and I just could not get past that to taste anything else.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Dark brown with white lace. Floral hops, toasty malt. Tasted more like a Belgian brown than a dubbel. Lovely beer.

Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2003
Bready yeast, toffee, and plums mingle in the aroma. Garnet color, foamy beige head, good retention. Malt and yeast dominate the flavor, with some subtle hints of grapes, nuts, and grain. Finish is slightly spicy and dry. This is a solid dubbel.

Faint earthy yeast and bubblegum aroma. Similar flavor, very clean tasting, not many fruity esters. Thought this beer went well with the spicy food I was eating.

WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2003
A surprisingly dark color and quite a bit of carbonation clinging to the sides of the glass, combined with a fairly thin, light tannish head start this one. The aroma is quite nice, and a bit different from the standard aroma of the style. Flavor is really quite yeasty, perhaps a BIT too much so, but still good. A nice beer, very unique for a dubbel, but good nevertheless.

pink magenta wonders blend with orange and red and shine in violet subliminality while a lathering beauty of firm frothy suds sit above and coat the glass so nicely with each swirl..grapes, plain puckering grape insanity arose up into my nose where my nose cells faught over each aroma atom...chocolate notes then proceeded to this wacktackular nose party ..flavors of deep mature malts, grain, cereal, walnuts, wine, plum, yeast and black grapes collided orgasmically..creamy mouthfeel, slightly bitter yet salty aftertaste..a little dusty and musty too..Superb

nice head on a brownish double-looking body..the aroma was a tad to triple yeasty for a double..its all bready yeast..the flavor is all yeast too..with maybe some strange white grapeness in the finish..awkward bitterness too..

delacerveza (166) - Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2003
big chocolatey aroma, lovely opaque brown color with hints of auburn. creamy fluffy off white head. roasted, malty flavor. not vinous at all. dry, with hint of a chocolate cherry aftertaste. tasty, maybe a tad too dry though.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2003
Dark brown with little head. Rather sweet malt flavors dominate with just a touch of bittering to balance it. Hints of chocolate and toffee are suprising in a dubbel, but make for a very drinkable concoction.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JAN 19, 2003
Chocolate nose and chocolate and caramel in the mouth with a lot of spice, but finishes a little sharp. Flavors not as well-developed as I'd like. This style can also profit from a little more fruit and a creamier palate.
Earlier Rating: 1/13/2003 Total Score: 3.1
Straightforward malty nose, but with more complex malt in the mouth with numerous restrained fruit flavors. The finish hurts the beer for me. While it dries out the malt well, it is terribly sour and rather unpleasant. Alcohol well-hidden
