3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: To be honest, this has to be one of Dieu du Ciel most inegal beer when it comes to taste. Most of the more recents offerings had this watery feeling mixed with green apples flavours, that I find a little bit annoying. On the bright side, creamy coffee notes remains, with dark cacao and roasted malt. Nice black robe and nice foam, helped by the nitro-tap. Satisfying.

En fût au pub (9) - Bonne bière dans le style mais rien de plus à dire. Texture moins crémeuse que je croyais.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap at the brewery. Masterpiece. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Taste is sweet, with a bitter background, and very long length. Palate is creamy, and medium bodied. Black, the head if thickly frothy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is all coffee and roasted barley Has a black black body with a light chocolate head. Flavour is heavy coffee and chocolate. Sweet mouthfeel. It’s a decent stout, nothing spectacular though. Ninety-eighth percentile? Hardly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Churchkey in DC.
Poured a very dark black with a pretty nice creamy tan head. Pretty decent head and some lacing as it made its way down. The smell was pretty one dimensional with some roasted character and faint hints of coffee. Taste is pretty similar, with a tad bit of smoke and coffee, but nothing too much else. After being thrilled by many of Dieu du Ciel’s other beers, this one just didn’t have all that much going on. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with good carbonation. Pretty drinkable, but nothing too spectacular.
Serving type: on-tap

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at brewpub. Pours deep black with a voluminous brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of both chocolate and coffee - and the flavour matches the aroma. Tastes extremely deep for a stout of 5%...rivals higher alcohol stouts. Excellent.
