Dieu du Ciel

Some more first timers to Missouri from the tiny Quebec Brewer
Dieu du Ciel Equinoxe du Printemps....$4.99 / 11.5oz

(Spring equinox)
Maple scotch ale - 8% alc./vol.
"Équinoxe du Printemps (French for "spring equinox") is the quintessential marriage of two great traditions: beer brewing in Scotland, and maple syrup production in Quebec. At the first draught, the mouth is overcome by woody, malty flavours, sustained by a discrete touch of sweetness. The aftertaste brings about the flavours of maple, which are sufficiently present to be appreciated, but never overwhelming the typical flavours of a Scotch Ale.
Equinoxe du printemps is brewed only once a year in January. It is aged for two months in order to attain a perfect balance in taste. Then, it is sold starting March 21st, until stocks last.

Dieu du Ciel Rigor Mortis ABT....$4.99 / 11.5oz
Quadrupel - 10.5% alc./vol.oz.)
"Strong brown ale inspired by the beer brewed by Belgian Trappist monks. Very little bitterness, this beer has intense malty and sweet flavours, mixed with the taste of chocolate and caramel. It presents complex red fruit and spice flavours due to the type of yeast that is used during the brewing process. This beer is at its best only after it has aged for six months. The Rigor Mortis are complex beers designed and brewed with patience and care in the tradition of the great Belgian Abbey beers.
Rigor Mortis Abt is brewed only once a year, and is sold in April until stocks last.
This beer won a gold medal (first place amongst 10 gold medal winners) at the adjudicated "MBeer" contest during the Mondial de la Bière in Montréal in 2006.
Rigor Mortis Abt will become available starting on Monday May 18, 2009. As only one brew was made, it probably won't stay long on the shelves! It won't be brewed again before next year, so don't hesitate to make some reserve of it, mostly that this beer can easily withstand a few years of aging." -- brewery
