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.

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?

Glass at DDC. Red amber. Thin lasting head. Light caramel scent. Dangerously drinkable. Light spice, caramel and alcohol. A nice mix.

elihapa (1545) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 11, 2009
Pours amber with a medium sized head. Aroma is fruity sweet. Flavor maintains sweetness (strawberry?) with a bit of a nutty body and ripe fruit flavor. Good beer overall.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2009
Really good brew. On tap at DDC. Thin head, amber color. Creamy and fuity, sweet with some caramel malt. Not that spicy for a belgian of the kind (less than maudite, if you had to compare.). Highly drinkable!

dégusté en fût à la brasserie et dégusté dans un verre tulippe evec un taux d’alcool de 7.5%. Une bière rougeâtre au reflet orangé cuivré avec peu de mousse. Arômes de sucre candi, crémeuse, bonne équilibre, caramel, pelure d’orange et crême-soda. Une bière ronde en bouche et bien balancé.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
Draught. At Dieu du Ciel. Hazy copper pour with a smallish head, a bit of lacing left nonetheless. Pungently bitter aroma of slightly burnt roast malt and cranberry - mildly spicy. Taste is the same - strongly bitter, near-burnt caramel malt with tart fruit admixed. Pretty decent body and it has a long carbonized linger and aftertaste, with some odd pungent herbal/spice notes left on the tongue. I didn’t get much chocolate, but it was reasonably complex and I would gladly drink it again.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2008
Draught at Dieu du Ciel! Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with an average size diminishing white head. Mild aroma of sweet malt, light fruit and light spices . Flavour, which is slightly subtle for a "Double", has sweet malt, fruit and spices. Alcohol’s well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good overall. The last beer I had during our beer-filled and fun weekend in Montreal. Till next time!

On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown/orange, small white head. Aroma of sweet malt, some spice. Really spicy taste with almost a burnt quality. Nice soft mouthfeel. Somewhat sweet. Complex, interesting and bursting with flavour. Great.
