COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brown ale inspired by the beer brewed by Belgian Trappist monks. Very little bitterness, this beer has malty and sweet flavours, mixed with the taste of chocolate and caramel. It presents complex red fruit and spice flavours due to the type of yeast that is used during the brewing process.

neuromatt (1106) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
On tap at Dieu du Ciel, served in a tulip. Pours hazy mahogany with a small tan head. The head mostly fades but leaves a good amount of lace. The nose is roast malts, with maple and brown sugar, raisin and a hint of yeast. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout. It acquires a moderate hop bitterness towards the finish. The finish is long and malty. On the palate, it is medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent dubbel. It has beautiful complex malts but these are complemented by a nice hop accent in the finish. Another great beer from Dieu du Ciel. 2010-09-04

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2009
On tap at DDC. Pours deep mahogany with a small head. Long retention and extensive lacing. Very nice looking. Nose is sweet red fruits with hops. Hops are earthy and mineral. Some yeast with hints of banana. Taste is hoppy with hints of fruits. Some sweetness and yeast. Some alcohol. Finish is a bit hoppy and warm.Quite drinkable. Very nice beer, I liked it a lot. Very surprising.

Lubiere (9788) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2009
A dark orangeyamber ale with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, a light herbaceous aroma of candy sugar, and a bit of treacle. In mouth, a rather interesting brew with candy sugar overlayed with sustained belgian hops, very strong herbal notes, rich and herbal, astringent. On tap at brewpub Oct. 31 2009.

JulienHuxley (2944) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2009
Tap @ DDC. A dissapointing beer by this brewer. Maybe because it’s called a double I expected it to be one but it isn’t. Quite out of style, the nose is full of american hops, lacks malt sweetness in the nose and in the taste and lacks the promised "Belgian-ness" That being said it’s quite drinkable, just lacks identity.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle - Pours a dark amber in color with a medium tan head that produces some nice lacing. Aroma is malty, slightly sweet with caramel and plenty of fruitiness. Spicy (hard to place) too. Goes down pretty easy... really good.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark see-through shade of amber with a beige head that leaves thick lacing. Has a spicey nose that features black pepper and nutmeg. Very earthy. Tatses of potatoes, cinnamon, yeast, orange rind, and overripe apples. Bitter with malt at the back of the palate.

bedainedebiere (501) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2009
Very fine beer, dangerously warming with so many flavors, so many complexities... The commercial description only says a part of what is in the taste, although I thought it was somewhat bitter... If they start bottling some of their Rigor Mortis, I’ll go bankrupt... Are they the gods of beer?

presario (4596) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 17, 2009
Glass at DDC. Red amber. Thin lasting head. Light caramel scent. Dangerously drinkable. Light spice, caramel and alcohol. A nice mix.
