BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!
Quebec, Canada
dieuduciel.com

Style: Belgian IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Last Will is born from a meeting between the Belgian and British brewing traditions. It has a complex nose of flowers and alcohol, supported by slightly fruity and malty flavors, all topped by a strong hop bouquet. In the mouth it is spicy and fruity hints and a discrete touch of alcohol. In the final, hops up the rear with force.

Couldn't garher the bottling date from the label, which did not look like the label pictured. Poured into a tulip glass an opaque light brown, which is an odd color, but I guess that's due to the Belgian/french style mash-up. I'm not sure how to score it. A one finger head dissipated quickly. The Belgian candy and yeasts came through the nose all while smelling like a cigar shop: horse blanket, apple, overripe pear, chocolate, tobacco. Wow, wow, wow. The taste is amazing, molasses, vanilla, black cherry, (tart?) berries, raisin, plum, tobacco, mocha, caramel. Still, wow for a long while after swallowing. Mouth feel is tremendous: frothy, a little sticky sweet, carbonation leaves the tongue tingling for a while. Wow!

Cloudy yellow, nice head. Lots of bitterness throughout, not very appropriate for the style, pepper and yeast, hints of dried citrus zest, herbs, farmhouse. Rough mouthfeel. I'd have to pass on more than a sample of this.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this from our Montreal trip.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear golden hue with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of light floral hops, faint Belgian esters, lightly fruity.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, nice Belgian notes, great esters, faint floral fruity hops.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, clean.

O - Overall this beer was tasty, very nice Belgian notes. Tasty.
