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.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2007
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a chalice, dark brown with no head to speak of. Aroma was a big dose of dark fruit. The taste was sweet and as expected a lot of prune, raisin, fig and the like. Lightly carbonated. Very little alcohol burn. This pales in comparison to something like St. Bernadus ABT 12, but still a nice beer and an under-rated brewer.

alethol (110) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Pours a very dark brown with a huge beige head.Sweet aromas, caramel and yeast. Taste sweet, malty, creamy. Alcohol well hidden, although coming through forward in the end. Very nice beer with ABV a bit too big for me.

jost2410 (2) - köln, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2015 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2015 Dunkel, fast schwarz, leider kein sehr stabiler Schaum. Rote Frucht im Antrunk, ausgewogen zwischen Säure und malziger Süsse im Geschmack. Wirklich besonders. Die 10,5% alc. merkt man diesem Abteibier sowas von nicht an. Aktuell eines meiner Lieblingsbiere. Am besten direkt vor Ort probieren!

Franksv6 (452) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
Amber beer with a good white head, medium carbonation. Tastes like (too) sweet, sugar, vanilla, raisins, fruit and mild spice. Sweet, but nice flavor.

Hamirubi (222) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2015
This is a bold Belgian brew I love to drink from time to time. A massive beer; strong, high in alcohol and full of body. The flavours are very mild, maybe a bit too subtle. In contrast with the taste which is very, very rich: Sugary sweet with licorice, candy and vanilla punches. This ale is very enjoyable but it definitely is not refined - the Grand Cru is a coarse brew, with out of balance sweetness.
