(12oz. bottle) - Pours a large dark tan foamy head, which collapses leaving lots of lace inside the glass. Body is a nearly black brown, and opaque. Actually reminds me of what freshly poured root beer looks like. Aroma is seriously pegged to the malty side of the spectrum, with lots of semi-sweet chocolate and toasted almonds. Flavors of toffee and peanut brittle. Back end is bitter from roasted malts. Yet another fine product from this Montreal Brew Pub, which is on my Brewery Bucket List!!

Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy pale black with a frothy and creamy tan mocha head that leaves some sticky lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, sweet dark bread, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, sweet liquorice candy, moist soil and hints of alcohol. Taste is slightly sweet, bitter, malty and slightly earthy. Mouthfeel is soft, velvety, round, slightly roasted astringent, very tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with roasted malts, caramel, espresso coffee, bitter chocolate, dried bilberries, ammonium chloride, moist soil and hints of soot. Lovely full creamy velvety mouthfeel. Flavourful and balanced. Nice beer!

Wonderful aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The taste is also wonderful and tastes like the smell. Lovely bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Enjoyable beer. Maybe a bit dry towards the end. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Nose of cocoa and coffee, pours dark red with a brown head. Taste is light aciduous lika cocoa bean and with lots of malty coffee notes. Palate is really long lasting and remaining cocoa as significant taste. Even caramel of the darker type.

Rödsvart med ett litet gult skum. Rostade toner, lite torkad frukt. Avslutningen är rejält besk, tar över helt ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dieu de Ciel Chemin de Croix 6.3% An India Porter bottled in January so quite long in the tooth but it's deep cola black with a creamy beige head. He aroma is mocha coffee with mild mint but I'm guessing the hops have mostly vanished. Medium bodied with a raspy carbonation and a bitter coffee flavor that gives roast while you get a bit of mint and pine bitternous in the finish. Nice but the label says it's not for aging so I'll need to try it again fresh someday. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJestersBeer (2391) - SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2016
341ml bottle, at 6,3%. Pours a really dark brown, with a quickly receding brown head. Roasted, quite hoppy aroma, coffee, caramel, licorice, citrus, ashes. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Roasted, ashy, hoppy taste, caramel, licorice, coffee beans, chocolate, yeast. Finishes surprisingly harsh and dry, on a rather yeasty note. Not as good as expected. (2016-08-03)

Autre belle offrande de Dieu du Ciel. Chocolat noir, café avec une belle amertume, fruitée, finale rôtie avec une amertume terreuse bien intéressante et balancée. le 341ml, a dark beer with medium head. Nose is intense on fruit hops and dark chocolate. Aroma is on the same, lot of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, espresso, creamy body, medium bitterness, pine and peppery hops. Very long bitter and roasted finish, robust and very tasty.
