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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2003 I expected a lot, but as MartinT pointed me out, it's far from a typical dubbel and I'm happy not to see it in that style on the site database. It's basically dark brown with very fugacious head, well-laced nevertheless. Neglectable carbonation. The nose reminds of chocolate milk. Weird malt taste.. I don't know how to qualify it, flat malt comes to mind. The texture reminds of coke, somewhat powdery, but very smooth and sliding on the tongue. Overly sweet and definitely not one that impressed me.
