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. Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2009
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. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2012

Sweet caramel and dark plum, roast and more caramel. Sweet candy malt, light roast and a soft bitterness on the finish. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2004 Caramel malt with sweet berries…Flemish Sour undertones, but not enough to be a real oud bruin...Cloying for a dubbel(?!)…

Draught at Dieu du Ciel! Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with an average size diminishing white head. Mild aroma of sweet malt, light fruit and light spices . Flavour, which is slightly subtle for a "Double", has sweet malt, fruit and spices. Alcohol’s well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good overall. The last beer I had during our beer-filled and fun weekend in Montreal. Till next time! vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2011

Draught. At Dieu du Ciel. Hazy copper pour with a smallish head, a bit of lacing left nonetheless. Pungently bitter aroma of slightly burnt roast malt and cranberry - mildly spicy. Taste is the same - strongly bitter, near-burnt caramel malt with tart fruit admixed. Pretty decent body and it has a long carbonized linger and aftertaste, with some odd pungent herbal/spice notes left on the tongue. I didn’t get much chocolate, but it was reasonably complex and I would gladly drink it again.
