Dark brown with small head. Nice lace. Malty, liquid candy!, soft and rounde. Very nice but perhaps not that complex.

A nice brew that pours a deep mahogany with little frothy head. Tastes of yeast, dough, and a little spice.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Very dark color; giant, rocky head. Sweet malt aroma, chemicals, cookies. Original flavor for an Abbey Dubbel: malt, dry roasted malt, light coffee, light liquorice. The final is sweeter and simple, just caramel and liquorice, not enough hop.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JAN 16, 2004
OK head, hazy orange/brown body. Nose of roasted malt, nut and some alcohol. Mild sweet flavor of nut, chocolate and malt. Soft and fluffy.

Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Jan 9th, 2004: It's not often that I get to try two beers in a row with the word "Dieu" in them. The beer is a dark reddish-brown with a medium thick and somewhat creamy white head. Decent lacing. The aroma consists of faint nuts and malt. Medium bodied and bubbly, with lots of malt and alcohol at first, then accompanied by hops and raisin flavors shortly after. The finish is mostly fruity alcohol with a touch of sourness. Not too bad.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Orange brown color with a respectable ecru colored head. Raw brown sugar and grassy aroma. Slight floral hops later in the nose. Sweet malt and and hopshack flavors. Mild yeast undertones. Fairly rich in flavor, helps make-up for the poor aroma. Light nuttiness in the finish.

TheBeerGod (5912) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2004 Pours brown with a medium soft tan head. Nose is sweet. Candy sugar, sweetened malts, and a hint of caramel or toffee. The flavor is sweet as well with more of the malt coming forth, along with sugar and more caramel. The 8% alcohol does not seem very present to me. There is almost a sweet-sour finish. Good beer!

Deep brown color, cream colored head. Aroma was quite malty with some caramel, bread and raisin. Flavor was sweet and malty with some breadlike undertones. Medium body, somewhat short finish. Was okay.
