Grimbergen Optimo Bruno - sent 82 times

Grimbergen

Brewed since ? in Belgium

10.0 % alc. vol.

This is a strong abbey-style beer from the Grimbergen monastery, brewed as an Easter ale but available all year. It has a rich, heavy, complex nose with malt, black treacle, petroleum, and possibly pepper. Flavour is quite sweet, chewy, cloying and puddingy, but the sweetness is counteracted by a malty, treacley bitterness. There is a fruity, port-like quality to the palate too, along with a cheesiness towards the finish, all of which suggests that this would make a good after-dinner beer. Incredibly complex, it is something to savour (rather than quaff) at the end of the evening.
