Grimbergen Double (Dubbel) (500ml Can)
Double has undergone two fermentation's, which gives this ale a chocolatey, toffee taste with a warming brandy-like finish.
Black body with some red tints when held to the light. Quick disappearing head. Some lacing. Smells of caramel, chocolate, and kind of a mint perhaps. Crisp tasting and refreshing. Toffee is prevelant with some chocolate. Very enjoyable full bodied ale.
These are dark, malty, yeasty strong ales in the Trappist tradition, but produced (mainly) by secular brewers. Dubbels range between 6.5-8% abv, and have a dark brown, cloudy colour, and a palate mixing malt, a lush fruitiness, and yeast. They are typically bottle-conditioned.
