Allagash Dubbel Ale

You never really know what you are going to get when you find an American version of a Belgian ale, so I am often reluctant to pick one up. I usually try to stick with beers from US micro-brewers that are unique to American styles, but in reference to this brew I made the right decision!

Allagash Dubbel Ale is a dark, mahogany colored brew with ruby hues that produces a three-finger head of small white bubbles. This beer is produced with seven different malts, a special sugar and Belgian yeast - which is the primary aroma that emanates from the brew.

The taste of this beer is much more tame than most Belgians. The malts blend together well to provide a smoothness and creaminess to the beer, and the special sugar is a very noticeable flavor to the beer. The finish is a bit dry with some chocolate notes. This is a really good beer!
