Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 18B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 23:30 <1>. AROMA: some ester aromas reminiscent of raisins and some dried cherries. spicy alcohols and a sweet and caramely background. some solventy alcohol notes are present. no hop aromas and no diacetyl. APPEARANCE: dark amber color with ruby tint. clear. average tanned moussy head with good retention. TASTE: low sweet malt flavour with a semi-sweet finish. low bitterness and no hop flavours. very faint to absent esters. PALATE: medium-low body with medium carbonation. OVERALL: a poor representation of a Belgian ale with poor malt complexity.

Grimbergen Cuvee Ambree )Dubbel (Double)) - 6.5% - Bottle at Rubens in Antwerp poured to Grimbergens glass. Pours dark brownish with some purple hues, and a half finger creamy off white head. Aroma is nice, with lots of dark fruits, figs, prunes, brown sugar. Smells very sweet. Flavor is figs and prunes, some brown sugar, and a slightly dirty finish here that lingers a bit unpleasantly. Prickly carbonation, soft mouthfeel otherwise, and relatively smooth down the throat. Not bad but the finish is a little offputting and downgrades things a bit.
