Val-Dieu Brune

Quite a dark pour, much more so than I expected. Lots of floaties that took some time to settle down. Some head, but it is airy and then disappears quickly to leave some lacing and a spotty, creamy thin head.

Aroma is pretty non-descript, some alcohol and a little dark fruit.

Obviously Belgian yeast presence in the taste and increasingly bitter as I drink it. Decent alcohol in the finish, and a little dry as the drink ends.

A little prickly carbonation takes something away from the mouthfeel, but it’s not very significant.

Nice rounded Dubbel, not my favorite style but enjoyable.
