COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The new masterpiece from the Val-Dieu brewery. A very complex and full-bodied beer with a long aftertaste. The brewmaster advices to cellar the beer for a year for it to unfold its full potential.

3oz on tap Twenty Tap. Mostly clear reddish color. Thin off-white head. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of slick lighter carbonation, lightly soft texture. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light bitter, lightly spicy.. Awesome dark fruit, mild spice, caramel malt. Good dubbel sort of flavor, I dig it. A bit sugary, makes it lean towards the belgian strong ale with the candi sugar. Solid belgian dark strong ale overall. A bit sugary sweet, but nice flavor too. I don’t mind it.

Dahlstrom (6) - gasvetksgatan 3, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2015 does not count
Mörk färg, med en kritvit skumkrona. Luktar sött och kryddigt av jästen; även en svag ton av vanilj? Smakar jäst, socker, och kryddigt. Alkoholen döljs väl av maltigheten, men ger sig tillkänna i den långa eftersmaken. /Tommie and Petter. Over and out!

Holmen1 (2866) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2014
Flaske hjemme på julaften: champagnesmell og flott beige skum blir til gardin og film som varer helt til bunns. Høytidsstemning allerede i aromaen - kirsebær, vanilje, molasse, rosiner, svisker og fiken. Alt dette til tross er ikke smaken for søt, den er faktisk frisk og fristende. Alt for lett å helle innpå - her gjelder det å passe seg så jordrotasjonen ikke tar overhånd. Et ganglag for sjelen innkjøpt på Belgisk Bryg februar -14.

On tap during Brussels vacation. Hazy amber with small beige head. Aroma is sweet, light acidity and fruity cherry notes. Taste is very sweet, light acidity, fruit, cherries with a long sour and bitter finish

hotstuff (4303) - Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Rated on 02-23-2013 at RBWG Grand Tasting. Six liter bottle courtesy of thebeersommelier. This beer’s appearance is a medium sized beige head with a short retention, hazy amber body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is yeast, dark fruits, alcohol, malt, and sweet. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable and has a very good flavor to it. This beer is worth trying and definitely a beer I would drink again.

0.75 bottle. Very dark brown color and a small, beige head. Sweet, pleasant aroma of vanilla, caramel, spices, bananas, and biscuits. Taste is also very sweet and features lots, and I mean lots, of spices. Medium to full body, creamy texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is just as full of flavor and spices as the rest. Overall a great beet, it had my full recommendation.
