Double has undergone two fermentations, which gives this ale a chocolatey, toffee taste with a warming brandy-like finish.

Fin (7674) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle, pours quite dark browny/red in colour. Some yeast on the nose but also there are some tropical fruits there as well. Taste was of chocolate and some dark dried fruits, good beer that was really drinkable.

elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Pours a dark golden brown color with a white head. Has some lacing. Aroma is that of fruits. Also has hints of dark fruits and spices. Finishes with a sweet taste on the tongue and warms the belly with the alcohol.

NEWTIMESBEERFEST. Very tart nose. Nice foamy white head on a dark amber beer. Balanced yeasty flavor, some notes of banana and other fruits. Not overly sweet. Creamy if not entirely fullbodied.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - APR 29, 2007
Thirst quenching! Has a full flavour with a great taste, yet it still maintains its primary focus, which is to quench thirst. Great beer for summers.

Bottle. 11.2 fl. oz. Clear, burgundy color with small off-white head. Sweet aromas of banana, cherry, and plums. Soft carbonation with a dry texture. Flavor is sweet with a dry, slightly metallic finish.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - APR 29, 2007
Bottle. Aroma is mostly of malt, a little chocolate and some spices. Flavor is pretty much the same; tastes like a good winter ale. Pretty good overall.

alexanderj (3332) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 29, 2007
Poured a dark red, smallish head. Aroma of yeast, grapes, dark fruit and spice. Flavor of chocolate, tofee malt, some fruit, yeast, a slight hop presence. Good beer.

larsga (6309) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 25, 2007
Small offwhite head quickly disappears. Deep dark red body, barely translucent. Acidic vinuous aroma with notes of wild berries and marzipan, and faint metallic notes in the background. Taste is roasty wild berries and marzipan with yeasty notes. Dry, thin metallic aftertaste with hop notes. Very nice. Harmonic and subtle, yet quite strong-tasting. (0.33l bottle.)

hoplover406 (204) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2007
Bottle. Pours a deep dark mahogany with small head filled with different size bubbles. Strong aroma of grapes, prunes and dates?! Taste is very similar with little malt character. Very thin and watery. Bland, did not enjoy or finish.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 24, 2007
Pours a dark brown, though when held to light it is a much more obvious deep red. Head is largely bubbled, uneven, and toasted white bread color. Smells of cookie dough, sweet and bready, along with some fruit malt, banana and plum. Taste is a tad oily. Shows lots of dark pit fruit, especially figs, plum, banana, cherries and chocolate. Really a lucious malt palate, and after having just drank a triple, certainly much welcome. This is a refined malt palate indeed! Great for sipping. After is a bit bloody, copper pennies if you will, with a slight metallic hop bite.Good beer. Purchased 11.2 oz bottle at Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington, DC (unlike the only other Grimbergen I had at a cafe in Paris!)
