Head is average, frothy, off white and diminishes mostly. Body is hazy Brown. Aroma contains moderate malts (cookie, hay, roasted malts, molasses), light hops (grass, citrus fruits), light yeasts (soap) and grape, raisin, peach, cherry, tawny port, licorice, cola and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then sweet and finally light bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Quite a good Dubbel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It appears cloudy dark red-brown with a tan head. The aroma has (red) fruits, caramel, chocolate and licorice. Despite that the taste isn’t heavy but medium sweet with light sour and light bitter tones. Because of this and the creamy mouthfeel it reminds me of the Bière du Boucanier Red. An enjoyable abbey beer.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 Poured in my favorite Grimbergen chalice. I’ve been listening about this beer for a long time so, I was able to find it in my new favorite beer store in Switzerland "Au Grain D’Orge". Something like "At the Barley Beans" :). Back to the beer. It’s a classic Belgian Double (Dubbel) beer, first of all, quite good one! It has a brown-red amber color and smells like coffee, chocolate and brown malt. Quite good taste that would be better if we could feel less alcohol. In average, satisfying beer. Looking forward to taste their Quad one. [ BA Review @ 11/13/2009 ]

Misitg donkerbruin bier met snelzakkende schuimkraag. Aroma bevat gematigd mouten, lichte hop en lichte gisten. Smaak is licht zurig, dan zoet en uiteindelijk licht bitter. Een smakelijk bier!

didierlewallon (216) - ponferrada, SPAIN - OCT 18, 2014
Tiene un color moreno y una espuma parduzca. Valle-dios Morena posee un aroma poderoso de malta, de café y chocolate. Su gusto contiene siempre teclas ligeras de café y la amargura es muy débil. La cerveza no es filtrada y sufre una fermentation en botella

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear dark brown, long-lasting off-white head. Nutty aromas - hazelnuts and almonds, toast too. Touch of icing sugar. Taste is nutty, brown malt, demerara sugar Quite sweet, but seems to hold together with a light herbal bitterness. Nice.

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2014
Abbey dubbel since 1996, like the other Val-Dieus brewed in a former monastery, but by laymen instead of monks. Hazy bronze coloured beer with moussy off-white head and estery aroma, fruity, some orange, raisins, candi sugar, yeasty with medium sweetish taste and spicy hints with mild herbal hops in the finish. Ordinary but decent.
