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.

Very nice complexity. The beer has a nice sweet aroma of roasted malts, and spices. The beer tastes like it smell but with a bit of a chocolate flavor. The beet has a great alcohol content to go with the spices that would make it a good winter warmer

Lele (408) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 27, 2016
ASPETTO: nera impenetrabile a bicchiere nero, verso la fine ti accorgi che si tratta di un marrone scurissimo. Schiuma beige chiarissima, abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: vinoso, speziato, leggero legno, maltato, leggero fruttato (frutti rossi). GUSTO: caramello, maltato, leggero liquoroso soprattutto nel finale, botte, leggero vino rosso. Corpo strutturato e oleoso, carbonizzazione abbastanza bassa.

alteregoo (860) - POLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Piana biała, gruba, sycząca, szybko opada do pierzynki. Barwa brązowo miedziana, opalizująca. Aromat lekko karmelowy, melasowy, w tle cukier kandyzowany, rodzynki, suszone gruszki, daktyle, odrobina przypraw w typie białego pieprzu. W smaku dość słodkie, rodzynkowe, estrowo karmelowe, delikatnie pikantne, fenolowe w posmakach. Są też echa miodu pitnego... Goryczka ziołowa, niska. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego, zbyt wysokie jak na styl, lekko wyklejające, lekko szczypiące, treściwe, z rozgrzewającym i jednak za wysokim alkoholem.
W tym przypadku przydałoby się poleżakować - ogólnie odrobinę nieułożone, troszkę zbyt wyraźny alkohol... Mimo to i tak piwo klasa.

When some time testing many beers mediocre or bad and you find a beer brewer pleasure multiplies. Complex, balanced, evolving in the glass, evolving in the mouth. A large beer

4 oz draft pour at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a pretty dark, cola color with a light brown head. Aroma was light funky notes, sweet, roasted malts. Light dark, dried fruits. A little bit of vinous notes hidden in there.

Rami Rami is drinking a Val-Dieu Grand Cru by Brasserie de l’Abbaye du Val-Dieu at Puszcza Kampinoska Niesamowicie delikatne jak na ten voltarz, cieknoowocowe, troche jak kwas chlebowy skojarzenie

Beggard (60) - - MAY 26, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2016 0,75l bottle, Känguruh pub Vienna. Intensive malty, caramel, sweet and burbon aroma. Brown color with a light brownish head. Overwhelming complex and strong taste. Sweet, chocolate, malty, and bit roasted taste. Sweet, bitter palate comes with nice carbonation. It?s not something i would drink everyday but for the moments u need somethong stronger than beer, try this one.
