Allagash Brewing Company Allagash Dubbel Ale

What the brewers say

“Allagash Dubbel boasts a deep red color and a complex malty taste. The finish is dry with hints of chocolate and nuts. The yeast asserts itself by lending a classic Belgian fruitiness.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Slight dark fruit notes with plum, dried cherries, some fig, and moderate banana. Low hops aroma, floral and herbal. Some dark, sweet malt aroma. A very low alcohol note that increases as it starts to warm.”

Flavor: “Bananas, caramel, toffee, and graham cracker push forward with fruity peach and cherry notes. A crisp hops bitterness and flavor in the finish provide structure upon which the malt and yeasty esters are layered. Nice carbonic bite enhances the overall drinkability. Aftertaste is long lasting and as it starts to warm, esters become prominent and the slight alcohol heat subsides.”

Overall: “Medium fruit, estery beer with strong plum and banana fruit notes that are dominated by a moderate alcohol. Nice malty beer with mellow fruitiness and a bit of spicy phenolic. A well-executed, fairly classic Belgian dubbel. Definitely one to recommend to a friend.”
