COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Je n’en dirai pas beaucoup pour le moment car, l’Homme étant ce qu’il est et (surtout) ce qu’il peut être, je suis légérement fatigué (y’a du vrai là d’dans!). Néanmoins, j’affirmerai que l’omptueuse robe noire, le sensuel collet de mousse blanche, les arômes de cacao et de vanille (d’Am. du Sud) et la facilité (et surtout l’intense et infini plaisir) à consommer ce breuvage nous approche de la perfection et de la divinité.

Draught - pint glass. Hits like a good stout, but fades in a wash of vanilla. Friends who like stouts love this beer, as do friends who normally hate stouts.

Dark brown color, with beige long lasting head and a lot of long lasting lace. The taste is of a rich mocha chocolat coffee. You can also taste some bitterness that just makes it even more inviting. The near perfect stout.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2006
Aroma of espresso, dark chocolate and some nuttiness too, darkest brown, a finger of foamy long lasting tan head, some very pretty lace. Huge roasted coffee flavour, loads of dark chocolate and brazil nuts. Extremely well balanced, medium bodied, creamy, smooth, bitter and dry.Fabulous!! Incredibly too easy to drink!

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2006 Draught (nitro, I asked). at the bar in heaven, I mean Dieu du Ciel. Very deep ruby, clear, with a large, lasting, creamy beige head. Rich, sweet-yet-bitter aroma of strong mocha coffee, some hazelnut, with sweet light roast malt, chocolate, yeast and milk solids. Solid creamy mocha flavour, lots of hop bitterness, nowhere near as sweet as I expected it to be, only a small vanilla bean tang to it, has a long rich balanced finish. Mouthfeel - Lord this is a nice beer, felt perfect on my palate, thick, sweet, lightly carbonated, just a hint of acidity, with a long finish. Terrific sweet stout. My scawled not says "hooo - baby! that’s f’in nice!"

Radek Kliber (6470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 18, 2006
Tap. Hazy, dark brown with fine fine creamy (finger thick) top. Aroma was very soft, velvety. Chocolate, cacao beans. Soft yet very rich juicy nose. Medium, full bodied. Plate dominated by soft textures, roasted grain and soft bitterness of raw cacao. Munich malts were used as well? Light yet very rich. Impression of chocolate dipped drink. Very good for chocolate lovers in cold fall nights.

Best drank cold, lost a little taste with room temperature. Creamy thick, full body, incredible aroma of vanilla and a little coffee.. FAR from beeing the best DDC there though !

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2010 Mondial de la Bière de Montréal; WOW WOW WOW, what a gooood beer. Its the first Dieu du Ciel beer that I taste, and this is a near perfect stout. The head is just like the Guiness beer, chocolate, vanilla, sweat coffee taste. Dark black appearance. I also smoke to the owner, and they are really sympatic.

Amazing! Dark brown with a tan head that just floats on the body. Aroma was spectacular with vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee and some brown sugar. Flavour starts with a kick of vanilla coffee and then moves to the choclate before creaming at the finish. Tastes like the best coffee, vanilla cream and chocolate mixed together. My favourite from Mondial 06.

Easily the best nitro beer I have ever had. On tap at the brewpub. The body was very dark brown almost black. The light khaki head was frothy. The aroma had vanilla with cinnamon and pears. There was also caramel and some shortbread. The taste was lots of caramel with smooth milkd chocolate. This is so smooth in every way. Very good.
