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.
