Reviews: Allagash Dubbel Reserve

An Abbey Dubbel brewed by
Allagash Brewing Company

Portland, Maine USA

Pours a very nice dark brown with a big head. I would say the head is about two fingers, creamy and tan. Be sure to pour slowly. Nice aroma with a bit of nut and dry fruit coming through. The taste was quite satisfying and I was very impressed by Allagash’s effort. A little light in body. Better as it warmed a little as the full flavor and aroma really came out. Again, I was very impressed with this effort. The flavor was a bit nutty and carmel like. I feel the Ommegang Abbey Ale is just a bit better version of this Belgian classic, though by the numbers I rated them exactly the same.

My ratebeer.com score: 3.8
