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

The beer is a nice double. Good balance between malt and hops. I occasionally get a "banana" flavor as an aftertaste. I don’t pick up on the chocolate described by the brewer.

Reddish brown looks, light head leaves to the sides. Aroma has dried fruits, red forest berries and sweet malts. Some yeast too. Taste starts with yeast, dried fruits and red berries. Slight tannin note in the middle. After warming up, some chocolate pops up. Medium body with medium-to-low carbonation. A pretty decent dubbel.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2014
Tasted from bottle and tap as Grimbergen Dubbel, the classic Grimbergen abbey beer since the fifties. Brownish bronze ale with off-white head and weakish, sweetish aroma of caramelly malts, peach, orange peel, iron, sweet taste, caramel again, a bit metallic, smooth, restrained fruitiness and some spiciness, nutty accent and light bitterish finish but not really hoppy - the sweetness remains dominant. Admittedly a little bit better than that awful Leffe Brune, but still way too sweet, bland and boring. I have the impression this is more and more being replaced by the somewhat more interesting and more complex Grimbergen Optimo Bruno lately.

Smells like sweet fruit. Dark with tan thin head, very winey flavor, interesting palate, slightly sweet on the aftertaste, some bread. Really nice!

Draft. Brown pour with tan head. Light sweet tones, Belgian sugar, fruit and some spice aromas. Flavors are sweet, dark fruit, missing complexity of other dubbels.

Bought in some discount store in the North of England. Can’t remember where or what shop. Got home and found it was Carlsberg so a bit disappointed. However this is an ok beer, a bit too sweet but overall not bad
