The label has a batch number of 1 0 punched out on the left for whatever year that means.

A medium copper colored ale with good clarity and a few floaters.

A vinous, dark fruit aroma with some moderately rich malt notes. There is a medium amount of caramel sweet aroma.

It tastes like it smells just with the addition of some Belgian yeast character of spice and fruit. The malt dominates back by some dark fruit but neither are to the extent of a Dark Strong. A wine like note again with a low hop bitterness and nothing for flavor hops. There is a moderate amount of crystal malt sweetness making for a balance that is moderately sweet. It has a medium finish and a quick pepper and raisin aftertaste.

A medium-light bodied beer with a medium strong level of carbonation.

Definitely worth picking up. It's a rich malty beer with a wine-like character along with some fruit and spice character.

11.5oz bottle: Bought this a couple of weeks ago, but it appears from the label this may have been made in 2010 (4 years ago). It pours an opaque brown color. There was a very small off white head that didn’t linger long or leave much lacing. The aroma is good. I get a little tartness (possible brett) on top. Perhaps some cherry, banana, yeastiness, raisin, caramel and others. Seems like every time you take a whiff you pick up something else. The taste is good. I was afraid that it might be bad from a whiff of brett in the aroma, but it is not the case. A very complex taste. Very full bodied, lots of malts but only a subdued sweetness. Caramel, bready, chocolate, some spices and fruits in the background. Complex and nice. No hint of the alcohol. I would definitely buy it again!

Bottle purchased from Oliver's in Albany, NY.

Pours a murky dark brown, coca-cola like, into my St. Bernardus chalice. 1.5 inch head. A little bit of lacing but nothing significant.

Smells like a typical quad- the dark fruits (plums/raisins), some spicing, and yeast.

The taste is pretty similar. Very strong raisin flavor, cloves, along with the typical Belgian yeast flavors. There's some brown sugar and vanilla flavors I'm picking up as well, and some slightly grassy hop aromas.

Full bodied mouthfeel, low carbonation.

Another good entry from the Dieu de Ciel lineup.

Pours a hazy medium brown, dense cream colored head that coats the glass on the way down. Smell: brown sugar and brown bread note upfront, then pear, into caramelized sugar back. Taste: caramel, soft pear, sugary red plum, pecan-y note. Full-ish body, creamy feel, fair amount of alcohol cutting through.
