Postmortem Brew Review
Dark amber color.
Malty and slightly sweet nose with touch of yeast and some dark fruit.
Tall, tan head with great draped lacing..
Lots of mixed malt taste and a crisp dry finish.
Medium amount of carbonation.
Medium body. Complex taste.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy 
Allagash Dubbel Ale was the right call at the end of a busy day. Holiday shopping completed, a reward was in order to celebrate. A recent dip in the temps also helped set  the tone for this 7% dubbel. This beer finishes very clean and leaves you wanting more. And how I wish there were more.

Seven malts go into making Dubbel Ale along with a Belgian yeast strain. It's tasty and a solid ale that can be easily sessioned. While it isn't the absolute best dubbel I've sampled, I would get this again and again. Smooth, malty sweet and delicious.

That does it...going on a hunt for more, soon.
