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.

Wow. I asked the server for this beer and she said it was an Amber Ale. Much to my surprise, this was an outstanding Belgian.

Outstanding domestic example of a Trappist dubbel. Pours to a beautiful, deep caramel color, with a thick, and creamy white head, and a lively carbonation. Lots of good caramel, sweet malt aroma, paired with some earthy yeast, and hints of pepper. The palate is firm, with lots of good sweet and caramel malt flavor, paired with flavors of burnt candi sugar. This beer finishes with great malt flavor up front, then ends with a mild alcohol, burn that lingers. Outstanding beer. Was a phenomenal match with the molasses BBQ beef brisket sandwich on white corn bread, and whipped sweet potatoes. A must try beer, from one of America’s greatest brewpubs.

Had this on tap a while back, but it was so cold I couldn’t taste anything. Now that I’ve got a bottle at cellar temperature I can rate it and appreciate it - and I do appreciate it. Perfect pour - hazy medium brown color with a huge billowing head. Nice lacing inside the glass. Aroma of Belgian yeast, bread, and spices. Taste is bread, spice, yeast and sugar. No alcohol in the taste or aroma. Slightly bitter, flavorful finish. This beer is well-balanced and very drinkable. Outstanding.

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...

This beer has a large firm head that gives of a sweet aroma. The beer itself is a light chesnut brown, filled with sweet and delicate spices. Well balanced and enjoyable. Not quite to par with some of the best Belgian imports, but an excellent American brew.

Aroma of malt, fruit, caramel, florals. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. A little sweet and bitter.

I’ve had this on tap at several locations in Maryland, most recently at Out of the Fire in Easton, MD. Pours a dark amber with a light head. Aroma is sweet and spicy with a bit of fruitiness (cardamom, muscat grape, malt). Crisp on the tongue, alcohol comes through on the back end. very good brew!

Pours more like a red than a brown but the foam and lacing are top notch. Btw, best by May 5th 2017 clearly stamped on the bottom of the can. Kudos to that. Belgian yeast, candi sugar, some caramel and nuttiness in the smell. Belgian yeast, bits of roasted malt, some bittersweet notes, a wee bit of butterscotch to my palate. This is really tasty. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Another very nice beer from this brewery; I reckon they have fun brewing Belgian style ales. Keep it up!

Nicely hopped for a brown. Similar to a Dogfish IBA but with a higher ABV. Highly quaffable to the point that the 7% bites you in the ass before you know it. If you visit the brewpub, don’t be the driver.
