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.

Erzengel (2399) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Im Glas hat es eine schöne tief rot-braune Farbe. Der Schaum ist schön feinporig und erinnert an Guinness. Das Bier ist sehr süffig-vollmundig. Schon fast schwer und dickflüssig. Im Mund breitet sich langsam eine schöne schokoladige Malznote aus, es ist kaum Herbe Spürbar. Ein süßlich-cremiges Bier mit sehr vielen komplexen, schwer zu beschreibenden Aromen.
Einfach Klasse um es abends schön langsam zu genießen!!
Test vom 10.2.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 13,14,13,14,13,13 - 13,30

Renobob (577) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 21, 2013
Noté de réglisse en final pour cette bière dark mais qu'on peut boire sans être dépassé par sa force. Notes fumées aussi bien au nez qu'au palais.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Dan. Deep reddish brown color. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar, some malt and a bit of salty licorice. Sweet flavor with caramel, dark fruits, candy-ish notes, some malt and a drier, slightly spicy, alcoholic finish. A bit sticky. OK.

Swaroga (1273) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2013
75cl bottle. Dark brown with medium head. NOSE : tart, dried fruits, figs, banana, orange peel, vanilla, toffee, burned caramel, dough and delicate notes of chocolate. SIP : thick body, medium carbonation, creamy and oily texture. Starts with sweet and burned flavors. Composed with vanilla, toffee, dried and cooked fruits in the background. Further some licorice and zest flavors are revealed. Ending with spicy and earthy feeling on the tongue. Spices like clove are persisting even in the aftertaste along with floral honey like hop aromas. The alcohol is well hidden but the thick body doesn’t make it easy to drink. OVERALL : satisfying brew. Well balanced and rich. Tasty.

langeveld12 (202) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2013
Pours a large rocky off-white head that mostly diminishes. Body is black. Aroma contains moderate malts (mild coffee, roasted malts, bread, caramel, straw), light yeasts (earth, leather), light hops (citrus fruits, herbs) and licorice, grape, raisin, plum, date, alcohol and spices. Flavor starts off light acidic, then goes to sweet and finally some bitterness is added. Body is full with syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Great beer, heavy on the sweetness but it gets away with it.
