Allagash Brewing Company Dubbel Reserve
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Allagash Brewing Company Dubbel Reserve. Since trying my first Allagash beer I’ve been converted to a total fan of theirs. I drank and reviewed this beer a few months ago, but didn’t get the review written up. Tonight is the night!
From the Allagash Brewing Company website: “Allagash Dubbel boasts a deep red color and a complex malty taste. The finish is dry with subtle hints of chocolate and nuts. The yeast asserts itself by lending a classic Belgian fruitiness.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours amber with a large off-white head and streaks of lacing.
Aroma: Belgian yeast, candi sugar, dark fruits and sweet malts.
Taste: Caramel malts, dark fruits, candi sugar, slight Belgian yeast notes and a little boozy.
Overall: Batch #100 of Allagash Brewing Company's Dubbel Reserve is tasty. Solid, smooth and completely enjoyable, this 7% ABV Dubbel is one to add to the list. Dubbels can vary quite a bit and Allagash Brewing Dubbel Reserve is nicely balanced and delicious.
