Since 1128, the Grimbergen Abbey has been destroyed 3 times by fire during wars, and rebuilt by the Fathers every time over. The Phoenix symbolizes this inspiring heritage, and the 9 centuries of brewing savoir-faire of Grimbergen.
Grimbergen Double Ambrée is an authentic and savoury abbey beer, renowned for its unique well-balanced contrast between spicy and fruity notes.
ASPECT: Dark mahogany colour, clear and a dense long lasting foam with a unique creamy coffee colour
NOSE: Strong fragrances of caramel and liquorice blend with the more subtle smells of red fruits, prunes and roasted malt.
IN THE MOUTH: Full bodied beer with a pronounced bitterness. In addition to the dominant liquorice and caramel there are aromas of roasted malt, bitter orange, ripe fruit and macerated prunes.
AFTERTASTE: Persistence of roasted malt, liquorice and prunes. The caramelized sugar syrup that produces the colour gives this beer a prune-like fruitiness and light bitterness
