UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 Draught in Wageningen. Pours a deep brown with a brownish head- quickly dissipating. Low carbonation and medium body, Sweet phenolic aroma. Dark fruits and caramel taste, with just a slight hop at the end. Great combination and very drinkable, if not as complex as other dubbels. 7/16/08- had again, and a bit too sweet after sampling other dubbels. One is good, after that too much.

Bottle. Pours a clear deep brown with one finger rocky tan head with ok lacing. Nose is dark fruits and brown sugar. Taste is sweet – molasses, caramel, raisins and sugar. Medium mouth feel. Meh, too sweet for my tastes.

Starting with sweet caramel and berries aroma, followed for a great body and very nice achieved colour from brown to red. The taste is precise as the combination of sugar and hop must be. The mixture of the foam and the liquid make a special sensation that you can almost chew it. The end is bit ethanol domiant, but definetely a well done Ale.

The nose was filled with caramel, toffee, chocolate and a good dose of nuts. In the mouth the beer was medium-bodied with a soft and rich midpalate. It was quite sweet with the flavors from the nose continuing through and just a touch of dryness on the finish. The overall flavors reminded me of dessert but this was not quite that sweet and heavy.

babil (3) - , SPAIN - JUN 10, 2008 does not count
Pours brown, with a head that quickly dissapears. Sweet nose like caramels mixed with tuna fish. Smooth and easy to drink but maybe one of the worst Belgian Abbey Dubbels comercialized. I understand that’s everywhere by their marketing and because people knows the Grimbergen brand but I’m really disappointed with this beer. I don’t wanna see what’s going to do Heineken with it.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Daknole. Pours a deep brown with 1/2" tan head. Nose was sweet with caramel/toffee aromas. Palate was full, creamy & moderate on carbonation. Taste was sweet with caramel & malty flavors. Quite a tasty brew.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Bottle from a liquor store in Vacaville, CA. Poured a brown with a hint of amber color. Smelled sweet and malty. Tasted of carmel and toffee flavors. Very full-flavored and an overall good brew.

donteatpoop (127) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Pours a nice dark amber brown color with a good amount of tan head and a nice glass retention. I couldn;t pick out much other than the caramel malts on the nose. Excellent taste, caramel malts and some raisins, finishing off once again with the caramel. Thick and creamy in the mouth, goes down smooth. Serving type: bottle

Not a bad dubble, sampled on draft, had kind of a bit of a sour finish and aftertaste, poured a beautiful and cloudy dark brown color with a soft brown head, the beer left a nice lacing around the glass, as well, caramel and toffee in the body, very smooth and drinkable
