750. 06/09?. Pours dark w/ minimal head. Alcohol fumes mix w/ raw sugar. Complex yet muddled palate, still very interesting. The spices are there in the beginning but it ends w/ the yeasty sweet alcoholic Belgian vibe. It’s nice.

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
