UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 Poured in my favorite Grimbergen chalice. I’ve been listening about this beer for a long time so, I was able to find it in my new favorite beer store in Switzerland "Au Grain D’Orge". Something like "At the Barley Beans" :). Back to the beer. It’s a classic Belgian Double (Dubbel) beer, first of all, quite good one! It has a brown-red amber color and smells like coffee, chocolate and brown malt. Quite good taste that would be better if we could feel less alcohol. In average, satisfying beer. Looking forward to taste their Quad one. [ BA Review @ 11/13/2009 ]

Balanced and medium body. Acid malty aroma. Taste is fruity with a little bit of toasted malt. Alcohol appears a little bit too.

Mørk brun klar med høyt kremete beige skum som ligger helt ut. Karamell, floralsk og syrlig lukt mot eple. Fyldig, søtlig alkohol og smak av krydderier. Fin livlig kullsyre, kort

pours cloudy if not murky light brown, orange and grey tint, with a frothy and creamy very bubbly light beige head, good retention and strong lacing. minty bubblegum, spicy and fruity belgian classic strain - trappist-like, shy fruitiness - berries and cinnamon sprinkled apples, spicy caramel, hint of sweetness - golden candi and brown sugar, hint of tobacco, lots of pepper. lively and foamy carbonation - settling, light body, assertive if not pungent woodsy-grassy-spicy finish. classic yet average belgian dubbel. their grand cru had a lot more to offer, malt-wise.

tricksta_p (1588) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2014
Aroma of sweet dark malt, brown sugar, nuts, candy sugar, ripe dark fruit. Flavour is sugary sweetness, a bit too much for my taste. A bit thin and overly sweet.

tom10101 (3397) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Slightly hazy brown with a frothy beige head and good lacing. Aroma of candi sugar, some spices and dark fruits. Taste is slightly sweet and spicy with candi sugar, dark fruits and hints of banana. Medium body (a tad light for the style). Medium carbonation. Mild, but lingering spicy finish. Lack of depth and body. Decent Dubbel.

rodenbach99 (3397) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Une belle petite bouteille 16/05/2015. Robe acajou, mousse épaisse, collante, nez épicée, noisette, bouche avec forte amplitude, piquante, épicée, longue manque de caramel ou chocolat. J’aime les Dubbel mais celle-ci lui manque quelque chose.

SlovakSniper (3576) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
33 cl. À consommer de préférence avant le 16/05/15. Robe brune sur laquelle flotte mousse assez forte. Nez de sucre brun et de raisins liquoreux. Goût bien malté sans être trop sucré et impression de brandewijn. Bouche huileuse et pétillement modéré à élevé. Finale courte et un peu chaude. Appréciable.
