Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
It’s a dark brown beer with a very nice and lasting head. The flavour is sweetish with notes of fruit (plum, raisin), caramel and a moderate bitterness in the long finish, where the grapefruit acidity, that I find in the Grimbergens, com in. But in this one it’s in a nice way, and as such this is the Grimbergen, that I like the best.

downender (8039) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2007
330ml bottle. Dark brown with a decent off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, dark fruit and molasses. Flavour was sweet and yeasty with plenty of candy sugar and a slightly dry finish. Ok, but a bit dull.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a deep burgundy brown with a creamy, beige head that diminishes leaving wispy lace in its wake. Raisins, toffee and dry red wine all come out in the aroma. Medium-bodied and creamy with a metallic and lightly astringent finish. Falling short of the nose, the flavor is of raisin and light toffee with a fruity, astringent finish. This bottle might have been oxidized a bit as it has a hint of dry cardboard and odd fruity notes that seem slightly out of place. The brewers website provides no clue as to the age of the bottle (Code: 1306NL1645B). So, I guess I’ll just have to re-rate this one at a later date, but given how unimpressed I was with this bottle, it’ll probably be quite some time before I revisit this beer.

MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Nose of brown sugar, rainsins, dark rum. A soft nuttiness and slight metallic finish. Nothing too special but nothing too crappy either. A good middle of the road dubbel.

elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Solstice party in Canyon, CA. Deep brown with medium head. Scent of Thompson raisins. Taste is sweet and sour, but shallow and not long lasting. No yeastiness whatsoever. I liked it less and less as I drank the glass.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 22, 2007
Bottled. A red/brown beer with a medium sized and fast disappearing light brown head. The aroma is quite malty with notes of fruits and a light toastiness. But is too weak. Sweet flavours with fruity notes and low bitterness. Medium bodied, but feels light for its size. Lively carbonated and the aftertaste is not so long. It lacks something, but after all is a respectable beer.

sm89walt (1985) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2007
33cl botte. This is one very nice looking beer. It pours a deep ruby colour with a fantasticly fluffy white head that manages to hang about for quite some time. The aromas are rather predictable, but let this not take anything away from it. They’re pleasantly sweet and fruity, rather plummy with notes of caramelised sugar. The flavours aren’t terribly complex but it’s nicely sweet with plenty of caramel and chocolate on offer. A dry finish with a touch of bitterness. Rather drinkable, if perhaps a touch on the sweet side.

Bottled from AH. Dark amber color, rich beige head. Lots of yeast and some caramel and fruits. Very boring
