16oz draft pour into a pint glass.
A bold clear mahogany colored body floats a virulent 1in. cream colored head that relaxes to a 1/8in. cover with lacing.
Aroma includes sweet roast malt, brown sugar, and spices.
Flavors match with anise spice and orange pith more distinct.
I am really surprised by this beer on tap in June. September would be more appropriate. This beer is right in my wheelhouse and is unexpected. I had never heard of Grimbergen. I was visiting a new restaurant. All indicators were pointing to a faux belgian dubbel. It now appears to be the real deal.
Who knew?
