on tap. Deep garnet pour with a 2cm tan head. Macerated raisin aroma, typical of a double...also ethanol detectable on the nose. Wow, this is very smooth and silky. Definate raisin with mild alcoholic undertone. A delicious beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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?

Yeastly aroma with hints of woodsy maltiness. Fruits, plums and prunes in the nose as well. Very earthy aroma. Nearly opaque mahogany color with tannish/yellow head. Chocolate malts to start followed by a sour maltiness towards the finish. Mild smokiness in the finish as well. Very SILKY and smooth. Great beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught (6 oz. sample) at Dieu du Ciel! Sunset amber with a small head. Sweet, warm aroma, with notes of slightly fermented fruit and mellow spice. Flavour is warm and boozy, with notes of brown sugar, dried dark fruits, and spice - especially cloves, which come through strong in the tingly finish. Pretty solid effort all around.

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!
