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.

Lubiere (9866) - 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.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2004 Caramel malt with sweet berries…Flemish Sour undertones, but not enough to be a real oud bruin...Cloying for a dubbel(?!)…

On tap at Dieu du Ciel prior to our trip to the ice cider Mondial. Pours a hazed garnet ruby with a thin to medium sized white head. Sweet caramel, toast, light roast. Sweet caramel and dark plum, roast and more caramel. Sweet candy malt, light roast and a soft bitterness on the finish.

Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 27, 2003
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.

HogTownHarry (6064) - 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 (6018) - 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!

Cloudy copper-orangey body with a small off-white head. Autumn 2007 batch is 6.5%. Name leads us to believe that this is a Dubbel but I think the generic Belgian Strong Ale ratebeer is more appropriate (Belgian Ale would be even better imho). Far from the creamy/nutty of a trappist-style dubbel this is a refreshing fruity Belgian ale. Full typical Belgian body, very yeasty with lots of different fruit flavours co-existing (berries, prunes, citrus, tropical fruits, cherries). The caramelized malt backbone remains discreet. Light but nice tartness and cherry-ish sourness. Somewhat sweet. Overall impression of drinking a fruity pie made with those multi-fruits breakfast jam. A more generous and expressive hopping and that could have been excellent. Renewed my love o fthis pub. I had this one after a pint of their Neuvaine experiment and it felt like makeup sex after a big dispute.
