Val-Dieu Brune is a dark beer, its strong aroma releases a moka coffee note that fades away slowly, to let the toasted malt flavor take place. Not too neautral, not too intense, but with a long harmonic persistence. It’s slightly spicy, to make you remember that it’s degustation beer.

Val-Dieu Abbey is a Belgian brewery set in Aubel, a small town in the Walloon province of Liegi, that produces high quality beers.
The original name is Abbaye Notre-Dame du Val-Dieu, and it was found by Cistercians monks in 1216 A.D.
According to an ancient Legend, the actual Valley that hosts the abbey was an abandon, inhabited and hostile place, so the locals named it Val du Diable (Valley of the Devil). Later, when the monks started to set, they called it Val-Dieu (Valley of God). The monastery was built in the Middle Age, and reached its golden age in the 18th century.
