Drank on tap (12 oz) at the Montreal brewpub, on December 12, 2010. Burgundy dark, little head with lace. Barley malt aroma with notes of juicy berries. Raw barley taste slightly sweet, really malty, aftertaste of bitter cereal. Really malty this Rigor Mortis, but it has not a lot characteristics of a trappist ale!

Has a decent amber colour with oh so modest head, and a faint malt aroma. Taste is light malts with a dry hoppy finish. Drinkable, but I’m not feeling the trappist connection. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Draft. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Belgian fruit toned ester sweetness. Caramel malt, light fruit. Hints of chocolate malt that come across a bit roast y. Mild spiciness. Solid. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Tap at BT. Pours a nice clear clean amber with a thin lasting head. Aroma is caramel malts, toffee, sweet candi sugar, earthy tones, some fruity esters- plum raisin, even pear.. Flavor is molasses, toffee, light tobacco earthy hint, phenolic belgian yeast- peppery, spicy, but mostly clean, not too sweet overall, and a fairly dry finish. Pretty good for a dubbel.
MiP (15960) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2010
Draught, 7.8% at the brewpub. Sweet Belgian yeast aroma. Hazy red copper colour. Small creamy tan head. The flavour has some fat yeast. Medium bitterness. Good maltiness. neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
On tap at Dieu du Ciel, served in a tulip. Pours hazy mahogany with a small tan head. The head mostly fades but leaves a good amount of lace. The nose is roast malts, with maple and brown sugar, raisin and a hint of yeast. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout. It acquires a moderate hop bitterness towards the finish. The finish is long and malty. On the palate, it is medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent dubbel. It has beautiful complex malts but these are complemented by a nice hop accent in the finish. Another great beer from Dieu du Ciel. 2010-09-04 GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2010

A dark orangeyamber ale with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, a light herbaceous aroma of candy sugar, and a bit of treacle. In mouth, a rather interesting brew with candy sugar overlayed with sustained belgian hops, very strong herbal notes, rich and herbal, astringent. On tap at brewpub Oct. 31 2009.
