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.

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.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!
