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.

Bottle. Pours near black, thinnish brown head. Aroma of burnt malts, dark chocolate, bourbon-like nose, dark fruits. Flavor is vanilla and cocoa, definitely. Slight burnt edge with a dry hoppiness underneath. Definitely desserty tasting. A little thin for my liking but great beer.

Dark opaque black with a slight caramel head. Aromas of dark chocolate and roasted vanilla bean, very distinct. Has a thick, full body with some nice mellow carbonation. Very smooth going down. Taste is sweet but not too sweet, tastes like it should, perfect mix of chocolate and vanilla bean with some nice coffee flavors as well. Has a slight hazelnut aftertaste. Perfect beer in my opinion.

Mjp12 (411) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Another stunning beer from dieu du ciel. This has the aroma, depth of flavour and creamy mouthfeel of an imperial stout, but without the clout of heavy alcohol. Drunk at cellar temperature, the flavour is fantastic, don’t put it in the fridge !

On tap at Brewood Glasgow. Absolutely brilliant. The coffee and vanilla blend so well. Pours black with a thin beige head. Smells of vanilla, caramel, and coffee!

Let this beer warm up in your glass & you'll be treated to a complex taste of cocoa, vanilla, smoke & burnt toast. As smooth as a velvet smoking jacket. An exceptional beer. Rated by BrewTom
