I'm  not sure what you mean by single vs. double bond in the viewer; a 
"double bond" in Gromacs (and other MD programs) is just a normal bond 

1) is slightly shorter
2) has a higher force constant
3) has a dihedral to keep the group planar (if necessary)

So, normally it will just look like a normal bond in a viewer.
