COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double has undergone two fermentations, which gives this ale a chocolatey, toffee taste with a warming brandy-like 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 (3407) - 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 (6684) - 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!)

RoyceH (1197) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - APR 21, 2007
Bottle, Aikmans, St Andrews. Dark brown beer with a big fluffy off-white head. Nose is fruity, some banana, sticky toffee pudding nose (2nd beer of the night that reminded me of that!). Malts, lasting through to the mouth, with a touch of alcohol. Dark fruit in the palate, some unpleasant sourness. All in all, quite good.

Frauditor (160) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2007
a sweet caramel ale with plenty of looloo. had on tap at Lagers one step further down the path of my journey around the world. little spicy, not much fizz, tiny head like the dude in beetlejuice. great smells, beatiful copper color.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 16, 2007
Dark brown with a decent head. Very sweet, fruity with caramel and toastiness. A hard beer to sum up... nicely complex with very pleasant flavours... but is less than the sum of its collected parts. Still a good beer though

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2007
Had this as the beer of the month at Winking Lizard. Pours a dark almost purple color. Has that fruity aroma and taste that you’d expect from a dubbel. Finished with a bit of a bite to it and as I kept drinking I enjoyed this one less and less.

dark ruby color, some froth, sweet (toffe,caramel), on tap, goes down easy, probably won’t be seeking this out, but not bad
