Chimay Tripel

A very full, slightly tan coloured, long lasting head on a dark golden, slightly cloudy beer.
The aroma is of citrus, fruit, cloves and coriander while the texture is quite creamy.
Ginger, cloves, coriander and a nice bitterness come through in the taste while the finish is nicely bitter with a hint of alcohol, which you would expect from it's 8% alcohol content.
As an aftertaste you get sweetness, flowers, and citrus and quite a nice bitter bite.
This is a finely balanced and excellent beer. I will buy it again often.

Dieu du Ciel - Solstice d'Hiver

Pours a very dark red/brown, against the light it is cloudy and garnet coloured, a thin head, slightly off white which leaves a ring and a touch of lace.

Aroma of raisins, plums, grapefruit citrus and alcohol.
Feel is very rich and creamy with a light alcohol burn.
Taste is quite full, lot's of toasted grain tastes amid various dark berries, raisins, plums, blackberries all come through. A light earthiness and a nice clean orangy citrus finish. The lingering aftertaste reminds me of port wine, or maybe sherry.
I like this one a lot, as a barley wine it has a lot of flavour going for it and makes a great sipping beer to enjoy while I watch the snowplow grind by for about the fourth time in the last two hours.

Pours a very deep red with bits floating in it. The head is almost non existent and it leaves no lace. Hmmm!
There is honey, soft fruit and some alcohol and a bit of earth in the aroma.
Full almost cloying mouth feel followed immediately by a citrus bite that washes that away.
I get mostly alcohol at the start with some honey sweetness and some fruitiness but a nice clean citrus finish. I like this but since moderation has never been my strong suit I will stop at one.
