3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle bb06/2015 purchased at Mondial de la Bière, Mulhouse 10/2014. Label, name and dark espresso pour with beige crema promise foreplay and seduction, but this upfront tastebomb delivers the full dose of advertised aromas right on your doorstep: massive vanillin sugar and cocoa in nose, mouth and on the palate, - as massive loads of cocoa nibs and vanilla were added to the mix. But can anything "massive" ever be an aphrodisiaque? (That’s what she asked). Velvet roasted bean aftertaste. In this sense, a mercantile New World interpretation of seduction, delivering sensation overdrive on your palate’s doorstep by way of terminal pousse-café, leaving you without any mysteries to decipher as soon as the bill and tip are paid, the creature disappeared.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
341ml bottle served in a tulip glass.
A: First of all, perfect beer art. Dieu du Ciel makes, IMHO, the most beautiful beer labels ever! Pours a dark brown to black color forming a small dark beige head which dissipates quickly leaving a lot of lacings around. However, a thin layer remains for a long time on the top
S: The best part. Strong notes of vanilla and dark chocolate. Roasted malts. A bit milky
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Very malty but less sweet than expected. Balanced roasted malts bitterness. Strong notes of vanilla and dark chocolate
M: Heavy and creamy body. A little bit molasses. Roasted malts and vanilla aftertaste
O: Very drinkable. Excellent beer
