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

This is a nice dubbel. I prefer this to thier blond. It has a nice toasted chocolaty malt flavor. I enjoyed one of these on tab at a little corner bar in Amsterdam.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2007
On draught at The Rover, Göteborg. Copper red colour, with big, ice-cream looking head. Hard, metallic aroma with fruits and bit toasty. Caramel, light chocolate are most prominent in flavour with the usual sweetness. Boring beer-style.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2007
Sweet dried fruits aroma with malty, plum like taste. Upon first taste it had a harsh finish but it warmed up nicely, not bad.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle (from Tesco). Lots of toffee, a little fruit and thin cheap malt. Pretty sweet which highlights the thin unsatisfying body. Quite poor.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2007
The aroma is very fruit accented with raisins, pear, apple and some mild cocoa and yeast notes as well. The body is a murky and ruddy brown color and holds a bubbly, thumb thick tan head that is mostly lasting. Sweet brown sugar/molasses notes in the first sip followed by apple and pear notes and lots of malt. Very low carbonation makes the mouthfeel soft, wet and round. Some caramel and light spice flavors toward the finish. It’s not bad on the whole.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Thanks Eric. The beer pours to a dark brown body with a thin white head and nice lacing. The aroma is slightly soapy hops, yeast, and spices. The flavor is sweet and has apples, golden raisins, earthy yeasts, turbinado sugar, light chocolate. The palate is sweet, medium bodied, slightly metallic, and definitely over-carbonated.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2007
[Sampled in 2003.] One of the most sampled bottles and one of the favorites once. Easy drinkable, too much sweetness, weak bitterness, yeast, brown sugar, fruit, chocolate and raisin. But I’m always ready for a Grimbergen!

Aroma is typically brune, nutty sweet hints of chocolate over the candy sugar. Taste is similar and very drinkable.

ABUSEDGOAT (2539) - California, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Mahogany pour with a small head, average lacing and retention. Aroma is caramel, spice, raisin, hint of chocolate. Medium to light bodied with a slightly sweet finish. Enjoyable but not interesting.
