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.

Poured into a large Karmaliet tulip glass. Poured a cola like brown with a pillowy three finger head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, spices, brown sugar and some candied fruit. Taste comes across the same. Although very sweet, the carbonated dry finish at the end makes this very enjoyable and not cloying.

La Val Dieu Grand Cru est une bière brune d'abbaye de haute fermentation non filtrée et non pasteurisée brassée dans l'enceinte d'une abbaye (à l'instar des bières trappistes) mais par et pour le compte de laïques. Avec une robe marron foncée aux reflets rougeoyants typique des bières de style quadruples, cette Val Dieu Grand Cru se pare d'une mousse abondante de couleur beige, de ce chapeau s'échappe des arômes de grillé, de malt, de chocolat et de Porto. Une fois cette bière en bouche, on découvre des saveurs de torréfaction bien marquées et un houblon présent. Des notes sucrées évoquant le caramel et des notes douces de café et de noix sont parfaitement équilibrées par une amertume moyenne. Pour en apprécier pleinement ses qualités gustatives, Saveur Bière vous conseille de la laisser mûrir un an avant de la déguster dans son verre Val Dieu

TrefwoordPunk (873) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy amberish brown with a medium off-white head and an aroma of cherries, ripes berries, sweet malt, caramel and spices. The taste is medium sweet with some complexity and a nice spicy finish. I do like this.

PapaVillum (823) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2016
Mahognifarvet Belgian Strong Ale med stor offwhite skumtop på 5-6 cm. Perlende og ufiltreret. Toppen svinder til et par mm. Frugt, gærnoter og alkohol møder næsen. Meget rig og frugtfyldt smag med både bitre og søde noter. Svesker, belgisk gær, rosiner og en tydelig alkohol efter tyve minutter. Fyldig sødme og en middel bitterhed. Blød, men også perlende mundfølelse. Kraftigt karboneret. En ganske solid bitter afslutning med en lang eftersmag. Overall: Dette bryg blev åbnet på ungefär 12 grader - lige i skabet! En længe ventet rating, idet nydelsen af den ofte har været for stor en fristelse. 75 cl, flaske, 10,5 % ABV, BB: 03/11/17, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

didierlewallon (282) - ponferrada, SPAIN - APR 27, 2016
Cerveza de color negro-marrón opaco con una cabeza de color marrón claro, que se disipó rápidamente dejando un cordón fino en mi vaso. El aroma es de caramelo, ciruela, pasas de uvas y levadura. El sabor es levemente dulce con frutas oscuras como las pasas y los higos; caramelo y azúcar moreno, con notas de chocolate y caramelo con un final un poco seco, Es muy complejo y bastante bien equilibrada. Extremadamente deliciosa.

Trolleo (1147) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 4, 2016
Dark brown color, clear body, small off-white to tan head. Pretty weak aroma, some sugar and chocolate biscuit. Same taste, only more intense. Chocolate brownies or something like that. Alcohol is very well hidden for a 10,5% ABV. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice and tasty.
