Bottle. Pours a very hazy brown with a nice head. Aroma of brown sugar, raisin, and a lot of grain. The flavor is more muddled - there’s still a lot of brown sugar and malt, but also a lot of flavor from the yeast, mostly unpleasant skunky/soapy notes. An unusual misstep for the typically spot-on Allagash.

Allagash did a great job with this Dubbel. A wonderful malty flavor. Alcahol is pretty up front from the first sip. It gets more interesting and complex if allowed to warm up a little. Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great carbonation. Dark brown body. Dark fruits and banana really come through. This beer was a little old but still held uo to the test of time. Very drinkable.

Apple aroma. Off-white head that lingers. Restrained flavors with a lively and active finish. Not as good as the Trippel.

Alpha10 (755) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2016
2016/11/30 - Pours a hazy amber brown colour with a thin off white head that quickly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel, doughy yeast, red grapes, figs, plumbs and light molasses. Taste is toffee, dark fruits (figs, plumbs) and yeast with earthy and nutty notes. Mouthfeel is medium, with sharp carbonation and a dry, bittersweet finish. Not my favorite Allagash beer, but still very drinkable.

Westchesterco (2043) - mclean, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2016
On draft at the brewery it is a cloudy red color with a white head. The aroma is malty and the taste is strong malty taste with hints of nuts

PhillyCraft (7219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Bottle from Canal’s Bellmawr shared with Joe and Stash. Pours a hazy brown color with an off white medium head. Smell is dark malt, cherry, wood, belgian yeast and fresh baked bread. Flavor was prunes, fig, dark cherry, oak, and chocolate malt. Medium bodied. Tastes stronger than the alcohol percentage Enjoyable

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Aroma - sweet malt, alcohol, cherry, and a slight wood. Appearance - the body is a deep mahogany, the nucleation is constant and nice. The head is off-white and about 1/2". The head fades into a nice foam. Taste - has nice semi-sweet dark malt. There is a little bit of chocolate, nut, some wine like dry sherry, and spice. The yeast isn’t immediately obvious. Palate - medium body, carbonation is average, finish is dry and slightly tannic and a very fine touch of bitters.

tightslice (1309) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is spice breads, burnt sugar. Taste is muddled...malty, some spiced raisin bread, yeasty, maybe wood. Not as smooth / fluid as I had hoped for, perhaps it really softens over time? Overall a little disappointing from the likes of Allagash.

Sample poured at Allagash. The pour is a darker amber color with a nice thick white head that slowly dissipates down to a thick bubbly collar with a good lacing. The aroma is very caramel forward. There is a light maltiness and Belgian spiciness to it, but the caramel lingers through out, which is why I think I like dubbels. Light alcohol on the back end. The flavor is definitely malty. There is a little twinge to let you know it’s not a traditional amber or English style ale, but it’s malty and caramel heavy like one. The mouth feel is a little thin on this with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly caramel malty finish. This is a good surprise!

ebone1988 (1918) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUN 16, 2016
Flight at Allagash with koleminer20. Aroma is grainy, caramel, toffee, woody, robust. Appearance is brown, light tan head, clear. Taste is caramel, toffee, wood, yeast, malt, good. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, wood and metallic aftertaste. Overall, a very good Dubbel.
