Biere a 10% alc. 330ml Couleur ambrée foncée Mousse et effervescence moyenne. Biere bien équilibrée, le sucre est bien dosé pour biere a 10%. goût de whisky et de caramel. Léger goût d'orange et de café. Douce amertume. Une belle découverte! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

APPEARANCE: deep amber color with ruby highlights. translucent. large tanned head with good retention. alcohol derived viscosity with lacing. TASTE: sweet malty profile with some esters reminiscent of dried grapes. strong alcohol presence almost solventy. some caramel notes. low bitterness and a semi-dry finish. no hop flavours.

Aroma is kind of strange. Not unlike the rancid sweat. It tastes like regular grimbergen with an added rosted malt

Donkerbruin bier met roodachtige gloed. Er zit van alles in het aroma. Beetje zurig, beetje fruitig, beetje moutig. Volle robuuste smaak met licht zurige afdronk. Voor een Grimbergen is dit best wel een lekker bier maar zou er geen twee na elkaar drinken.

DwarfeD (1050) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2014
33cl bottle at local Greek restaurant. Clear amber brown with a medium slightly off-white head. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Sweet with bitter tones. Malts, caramel, dark fruits, herbs and spices. A nice strong brew.

Moolesen (205) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Brown/red with a beige head. Week aroma, almost none. A bit metallic and sweet malt is though present. Rich taste of dried fruit and actually not too sweet, which I expected. Medium length.

Zlotta (52) - Bonn, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2014
Clear dark amber colour. White foam which disappears quickly. Suggarish aroma with much alcohol. Medium bitterness. Average carbonation. Not quite what I expected. Disappointing.

Tukkis (13) - FINLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Amber color, pleasant scent. Clear liquid with light foam. Suprisingly easy taste, slightly sweet and . Rye aroma. Medium body with a bit oily texture. Tastes OK with dark chocolate coated nuts/fruit.

Alengrin (2109) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
The heavy Easter Grimbergen, with a bronze colour and off-white, irregular head. Sweet, quite rich aroma, malty, spicy notes, fruity; bit vinous in the mouth, caramelly, sweet fruitiness, mild hoppy finish with warming alcohol. I am not into Grimbergen at all but this is the best of the range I’ve had so far.

La hermana mayor de Grimbergen. Tiene la graduación necesaria para desatar toda la potencia y sabor de una escepcional cerveza belga q a cada trago denso y negro muestra el porque es una eleccion segura. Pasas tostado y madera. Riquisima cerveza.

Een van de lekkerste Grimbergen-bieren dat ik al geprobeerd heb, echt een lekkere volle smaak
