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.

This is one great smelling, fabulous tasting beer. It’s probably the most chocolatey beer I’ve ever had and it shows remarkable balance with a very subtle sweetness and just enough bitterness. The head is not impressive at all, detracting a little, but otherwise a stellar beer, and easily one of my favorites. Another win for dieu du ciel!

This Quebec Stout is the perfection of a stout. It as a distant smell of cocoa and burnt malt. The taste explode in a twist of vanila and roasted malt. Drink this any day at any time! Cheers!

12 oz bottle shared get Gus. The pour is a nice light black with a thin ring of lighter khaki head and no lace. The aroma is a little disappointing. There is a lot of roasted malt and a light cocoa. Not a whole else. It's rather disappointing. The flavor is a little better. There is a heavier malt presence and a good light vanilla. It's pretty basic with the cocoa and malts. The mouth feel is decently thick and carbonated. There is a bitter finish to it and it's just not what I was hoping to taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tranquillity (1524) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2015
Tap at barhop, part of a 3-beer blind tasting. Think small bubbled brown head. Slightly transparent but very dark. The aroma is like chocolate milk, slightly too sweet. The taste is very chocolatey. The finish is nice And burnt.

Very perfect head and black body in a glass. Sweet coffee aroma with barley hints and wood. Flavour is Starbucks style frappucino with sweet notes and a chocolatey finish. Very good drinkable stout.

Bottle at home. Pitch black, creamy beige head. Big dark chocolate/cacao and vanilla tones, creamy malts; lightly bitter, quite complex. Lingering aftertaste. Immensely soft mouthfeel, low carbonation, big body (especially considering 6,5abv).
