Allagash Dubbel Ale

Typical of the relatively unattractive nature of many Dubbels, this shows a dirty, drab, brown body, but a nice looking head. The head is small but leaves a nice film of lace on the surface, and some additional lace on the St. Bernardus goblet.

Some mixed dark fruits in the aroma, and suprisingly little alcohol. This is a little confusing since it drinks above its 7% ABV, but has an aroma below it.

Very, very smooth with some warming alcohol, a little banana and some tropical pineapple.

Very good mouthfeel and a real good example of the style. Some surprising bitterness in the finish.

Thanks go out to Keelkemper.
