On Tap at Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Philadelphia.
This beer is everything I expect in a Belgian Double.
Appearance: Served a dark opaque brown color with a small beige head and plenty of lacing.
Smell: Fruity with a thick malty almost dough like aroma, Belgian yeast a spices with a suggestion of caramel as well.
Taste: Starts sweet and malty with dark fruits, caramel, toffee and raisins and yeasty flavors. Smooth and balanced it finishes with spices and a touch of alcohol.
Mouthfeel: It is rich and thick but smooth.
Drinkability: It is a bit heavy to consider sessionable but it is tasty and enjoyable if you are sipping one glass.
Hope this is helpful.

330ml bottle. Grimbergen Goblet glass. Deep ruby color, red lights. Tan, creamy foam remains as a thin layer on top. Toasted, sugary & red currant aromas with syrup hues. Sweet & sparkling upfront. Medium to light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Hints of grape, spicy & herbal bitterness. Bitter finish & sugary aftertaste. Artificial & cloying.

Had on tap at T.J. Finley's, Bay Shore NY. A good deep brown with head and lacing very ample. It has a wonderfully tart fruity sugar and spice smell, which carries through in the flavor. The brown sugar and raisin taste is balanced by the hops, which evenly accentuate the drinking experience without dominating. The feel is lighter than some others, but that only helps make this a highly drinkable beer. I've had Grimbergen in the bottle as well - either way, solidly recommendable.
