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.

From a 341 ml bottle into a pint. Pours a deep, dark brown, almost black, with a thin beige head. Rather low head retention, though it leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Very strong cocoa and coffee taste ; I’m almost anosmic, yet this ale smells, and it smells good ! Mostly tastes of strong cocoa and sweet vanilla, with an aftertaste of sweet moka. Leaves a pleasant, lingering taste of strong, dark chocolate for a few minutes after the last sip. Has an oily texture and good carbonation. The alcohol tastes a bit, but just enough so that it is in no way irritating. Best dessert stout I’ve ever had, and quite frankly, it also has to be the best Quebec ale I’ve had, on par with Les Trois Mousquetaires’ Porter Baltique. I highly recommend it to any beer lover.

Extraordinary. Dark, rich, and actually chocolatey flavor. Hints of vanilla and an intense cocoa flavor. I would buy this by the case if it wasn’t so expensive. Dieu du Ciel earn serious credit with this beer. A great stout.

Had this a number of times both on bottle and on tap. Tap way surpasses the bottles, and when served right this is one of the best stouts i’ve ever had.

Bottle. Wow this is good! super smooth body with perfectly balanced roast flavours. The additives work so well in this. Up there with the Peche Mortel.

Velvety black color with thin tan head. Aroma of port, coffee gounds and milk chocolate. Enormously complex palate with big flavors of rum, vanilla, roasted malt and a mocha espresso and tobacco finish. Wow, this one is special.

341 ml bottle. Pours black with nice tan head. Aromas of dry dark chocolate, black coffee, and creamy vanilla. Tastes like a dark chocolate Mars bar in a glass. Flavours of milk chocolate, espresso, cocoa powder and heavy roasted malt. Nice light bitter finish. Excellent.

I couldn’t ask for a better beer to finish off the evening. This beer has an equal blend of vanilla, bourbon, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. For a dessert beer, I couldn’t be any happier. This brew is addictive.

Deep black pour with a fast dissipating light khaki head. Amazing aroma of sweet dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, a light touch of bourbon-ish qualities, and roast. Flavor is magnificent. Sweet vanilla and dark chocolate M&Ms, sweet mild bourbon, caramel, and a finish of lightly boozy chocolate, honey, caramel, roast, and gentle bourbon. Soo dang tasty.
