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.

Pours deep black with tan head, aroma is full of chocolate and vanilla. Taste up front is huge chocolate and vanilla working together, dark chocolate notes lead into bourbon and coffee, and finishes a bit roasty. Mouthfeel is unbelievably creamy. Excellent brew!

dogfish120love (1075) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Pours a very dark brown (almost black) with a medium to thick rich brown head. The aroma is fantastic: vanilla, chocolate and a little soy sauce along with coffee. The flavor is roasted coffee along with some vanilla and chocolate. It is absolutely delicious. It is a perfect mixture of flavors, without being overly sweet. Very complex.

What a great beer! Pours an inky black with nice lingering head. Big flavours in this one - lots of malt, lots of chocolate. I found it hard at first to pick out the vanilla, but it must be what givesit a richness and a kind of exotic, unusual sweetness. Great thick and smooth mouthfeel with a long, pleasantly bitter finish.

Bottle. Pours a heavy deep brown color with lingering head. Flavor is deep cocoa, roasted malts, hints of vanilla. As in the deScription, both the cocoa and the hop presence provide a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied with a lingering sweet finish. Easy drinking and smooth, does Dieu Du Ciel make any bad beers?

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours a thick, opaque espresso brown with close to no head, just some tan lacing. Aroma is a rich cocoa mixed with what reminds me of creme brulee. Flavor is beautiful. A creamy cocoa/dark chocolate mixed with notes of vanilla and hops. Body is creamy with light carbonation and bit bitter finnish

12oz. Thick brown black with a beige head. Coffee, vanilla, rich cocoa, bakers chocolate. Thin body low carbonation. Sweet cocoa with burnt chocolate coffee and a bitter finish. Flavors of cocoa are a too dusty and sweet. Hopin for something a little less sweet bitter and cocoay.

Donít know who brought this one but thanks. Pours a dark clear ruby-brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is mocha, vanilla, iced coffee, very sweet and appealing. Flavor is a great vanilla/chocolate tour-de-force. The cocoa and vanilla additions come through vividly, and while itís sweet, the roasty coffee finish evens it out to make it really drinkable. Smooth silky mouthfeel.

11.5 ounce bottle, with Aphrodite printed on the label. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown with about a half inch tan head that went away pretty quickly. Decent amount of lacing. Very nice aroma, it smells like chocolate, vanilla, coffee and roasted/burnt malt. Taste is the same as the aroma, itís sweet and bitter at the same time, with a nice roasty bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís creamy and well carbonated. Drinkability is very good, Iíd drink this quite a bit if it was available all the time. I think this is a pretty good brew, Iíll definitely buy this again the next time I can find it.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Nice aroma of dark chocolate and lightly roasted malts. Flavor is perfectly sweetened by the vanilla and cocoa and doesnít mask the wonderful roasted malt base. Everything comes together just as it should. A great smooth brew that isnít over the top but serves as an excellent stout for any occasion.
