Smuggled into the country by a friend of a friend, thanks for sharing Rob!
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a thick off white head that quickly dissipates to stray bubbles on the top. The aroma is very malty with lots of dark sugars and caramel. Sweet candy hints of light sweet fruit and some earthy and herbal hops round out the nose nicely. The flavor is malty up front with a lot of the sweetness from the aroma. The sweet is cut with a spicy earthy hop bite as well as a bit of a mineral type flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly sharp mineral mouthfeel. This smells great! The flavor is a bit harsher with a mineral water thing going on that is slightly unpleasant.

Amber brown colour, mild white head with some lace left behind. Smell is malty with notes of caramel, sweet notes, lightly nutty and slight bitterness as well. Taste is all malt, caramel, sweet in the finish, lots of malt in finish and aftertaste as well. Mouthfeel is syrupy, big feel to this brew, nice medium carbonation. Pretty good, not fantastic for the style but still quite good.

Pours dark red with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows sweet caramel, toasty and nutty malt, soft earth and resinous hops and some golden syrup.
Flavours are also mainly malty, lots of toasty and nutty malt transfers through as well as some subtle caramel. Finishes with a bold bitterness, much drier than the aroma suggests.
Carbonation is a bit full-on.

The beer color is brown with some reddish note. One could say it is acajou in color. Nice head on top of it. Sticky too. Dieu du Ciel amaze me in their head quality... Love that sticky stuff.

Aroma shows note of malt with some nuts. The aroma has a light intensity.

Taste wise I get some hazelnut with malts... Light bitterness at the end. Resinous.

Medium body. So easy to drink. A session beer. A good one too. Very accessible.

A decent beer, but not so alty. Pours a bit dark looking with three-quarters of an inch foamy head. Malty aromas which is the taste, it is a smooth drinker. A tad thin mouthfeel. On the sweet side, some bitterness and black pepper in the finish.
Thanks Fred.

Bottle from IGA outside Mont Tremblant.

A - Pours with a really soda pop-ish head of very loose bubbles. Bright, no visible carbonation, dark copper colour. Good soapy lacing and a film of retention.

S - Earthy and spicy hops with a good sort of oaky or whiskey note. Nice dark malts

T - Slightly smokey with a good kick of earthy and spicy hops. Good dark malt balance. Kinda like an ESB but with a little bit more of a burnt/smokey element.

M - Some mild carbonation and a medium to full body. Slight bitterness in the finish.

O/D - Didn't knock my socks off but I enjoyed it. Easy to drink and full of flavour. A little heavy to session but a nice one for DDCs standard releases.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: More cloudy then I expected but it does have the right color of an alt. Brownish ruby color with finger of slightly off white head. Decent lacing an retention.

S: Sweet malts come through. Caramel, toast, along the lines of that.

T: Melanoidinesque flavors definitely come through. Caramel, toasted bread, are most prominent. More hops then the aroma would lead one to believe as well. Fairly bitter and a slight bit of noble hop flavor is detectable.

M: Carbonation, like i feel on all of dieu de ciels beers, is perhaps a touch low for my liking but its well done enough.

O: A good beer overall and i'd love to pair some mexican food with it.
