Bottle from quagmite.I actually liked this beer more than I thought I would. I’m not the biggest fan of the Belgian style but this came in a trade. Pleasantly surprised. Beautiful dark reddish murky brown pour with a nice head and good lacing. Smells of dark fruit and brown sugar and the same elements come out in the taste as well. This is actually pretty good. I don’t enjoy Belgians very much but this is good. Don’t know that it belongs with some of the others that I’ve tried like Rochefort 10, De Dolle Stille Nicht or Chimay Blue but it is a good beer and I enjoyed it. Thanks to quagmite for the bottle!

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Pours a murky brown color with a quick inch of fluffy white in the trappist glass. The scent was of figs, malt, brown sugar and yeast. Sweet, cloying flavor with some toffee and brown sugar taste. A sweet, malty finish leaves a lingering chocolate flavor on the palate. A nice, drinkable dubbel.

Acarotibia (55) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - JAN 10, 2008
Soft aroma and dark golden colour with soft and bitter foam. Sweet fruit flavor with a sad metallic palate. Good beer but you better not finish your drink with it.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 9, 2008
33 cl. bottle with " 08 -01 -05 " printed on bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown. Has an off white head which leaves a beautiful lace. Mild aroma of black pepper, spices, and caramel. Light to medium bodied, it has a chalky, dry mouthfeel. A malty caramel sweetness dominates the flavor. A nice, easy drinking brew. 2004

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - JAN 9, 2008
Nice appearance, quite bland nose, bit malty, very slightly chocolate, bit fruity. Flavours are as bland as aromas with a bad metallic finish.

taunusmies (352) - FINLAND - JAN 7, 2008
Pours nicely dark brown colour. Taste is malty and bready with spicy hops. Quite sweet and fruity. Could have a bit stronger body. Slightly metallic aftertaste.

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 6, 2008
Nice brown color with a medium but stable beige head. The flavour is creamy caramell and sweetish with moderated hop and carbonation. You can feel a little alcoholic taste at the dry finish.

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 (8270) - 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.
