Dubbel Reserve Belgian Style Ale
Portland , ME
A: Pours a cloudy amber brown from the bottle with a nice size cream head which doesn't remain too long.
S- Has a little tobacco, a little fruity, a somewhat malty. Smells a lot like a fall type beer.
T- Is a little light, with malt predominant over some of the more dark fruit flavors. There's still a little of the smokiness to it, but overall the malt and fruit is what comes up front.
Mouthfeel is too light for a dubbel. It's a little too thin and perhaps a little too carbonated for my taste. It doesn't break the beer, but it sure doesn't help it's cause any.
This is an overall very drinkable beer, but would most likely not look for it on the shelf again.
