COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brown ale inspired by the beer brewed by Belgian Trappist monks. Very little bitterness, this beer has malty and sweet flavours, mixed with the taste of chocolate and caramel. It presents complex red fruit and spice flavours due to the type of yeast that is used during the brewing process.

Lubiere (13193) - 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.

on tap at ddc montreal brewpub. hazy/cloudy mahogany light brown pour with a quite nice reviving light beige-red head, nicely lacing tue glass. very spicy red cereals, lots of red berries, complex cara-brown maltiness, brown sugar and caramel sweetness, very fruity trappist-like yeast strain, astringent handpicked herbs, woodsiness - spicy and fruity cherrywood perhaps. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily; semi-sweet very spicy finish. very nice red berry-centric dubbel. quite enjoyed!

blankboy (7430) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2008
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. Alcohols well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good overall. The last beer I had during our beer-filled and fun weekend in Montreal. Till next time!

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
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 didnt get much chocolate, but it was reasonably complex and I would gladly drink it again.
