Aroma of cherries, chocolate, caramel, figs, soap and spices. Taste of milk chocolate, plums, cherry, caramel, spice, black grapes, roasted nuts, and a wet dog sour note. Nice mouthfeel. This beer was sweet and enjoyable. It was the essence of smooth, in both palate and taste. Well done.

gorkogrlo (154) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle 0.33 l. Dark red color. Medium white head. Not much lacing. In aroma dominate bananana, cherries and chocolate. Sweet body with taste of caramel and dark fruit. Maybe, there are, also, some earth notes. Overall: nice beer.

tom10101 (2943) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Dark amber with a medium mostly lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of dried raisins, light liquorice, caramel, chocolate and light vinous notes. Taste is mild and a lot less expressive than aroma (which isn’t that expressive either)... toffee, chocolate, spicy notes and light vinous notes. Medium body, but weak and watery. Moderate/medium carbonation. Bland finish. A bit herbal too. The aroma isn’t bad at all, but then it gets as boring as possible. The body is weak and there’s a clear lack of flavors. Not interesting.

"dark burgundy in color, yeast on the nose. sweet flavor, but not too much. more yeast and slightly dry spicy finish. almost no noticeable hops. good beer."

eduardovl (870) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
0.33l bottle poured in a its own chalice A: Beautiful dark amber color with a nice creamy beige head which dissipates quickly leaving some nice lacings S: Sweet. Toffee and caramel malts dominates. But also a dark fruits, spices and Belgium yeasts T: Again caramel malts and spices. Sweet as a Belgium Dubbel should be with a light bitter end. M: Creamy and dense with a medium carbonation D: Good. I personally like the Belgium Dubbel style and Grimbergen represents it very well. I really recommend it [ BA Review @ 6/2/2010 ]

Cool_Bond (1500) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2014
Typical aromas of Belgian yeast. Easy flavor of berries but watery and not at all good. The aftertaste has a weak bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth of a weak moment. Not at a beer for me. Minus points from me. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Vinous and complex in the nose, strong fruity notes of cherries, raspberries and alcohol. Heavy sweetness which fits well with the dark red colour. The variation during the tasting period is only in intensity.

mbatley (1) - Towson, Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2014 does not count
Moving in the diretion of a beer port. Same kind of raisiny sweetness but no where near as jammy. Very drinkable at 6.5% and nice smooth finish. Had on tap.

On tap at St. Veronus. Black/blood red body with thin off white head. Dark fruits, nuts, alcohol and some fruity malts. Creamy oily texture, medium bodied. Very sessionable for the style.
