3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hoppy nose coming from a dark brown beer covered by a moka head. I thought it would be less hoppy than it is but it is excellent that way. Finishes quite dry even if you can still make out a little of the base wort, imperial it is indeed. A touch of roastiness is accompanied by green hops on the flavor side. Overall a really nice and original offering by DdC!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color with mocha head. Aroma has dark malts, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruits and some spices. Taste starts with some liquorice, chocolate, roasted malt, quite bitter, especially on the finish and lingering very long on the aftertaste with roasted chocolate malt. Body is quite light with a good amount of carbonation. Overall it’s an interesting spicy beer with a very well hidden ABV but a bit unbalanced for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home, 27/06/16. Ordered from Saviere Biere. The alcohol comes through in the aroma, with a dark roasted element. Dark and treacle looking. Had a superb chocolate milkshake head, which disapated far too quickly. Bitter but not too much so. Full thick body with a good alcohol burn to it. More of a winter beer. Good stuff.

Bière de dégustation très complexe et remarquable.

Tap into a snifter showing pitch black with sparse latte foam
The nose shows roasted malts and ground coffee.
The palate shows moderate carbonation, a full body and smooth but only light coffee and roasted malts with a faint anko sweetness on the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (date stamp says 9/10/15). Stouty brownish-black pour, massive, rocky, beige head with wicked retention and lace. Nose is full of roast, minerals, prunes, candy, soy sauce, some faint funk from the yeast (although is mostly overcome by the mash bill). Mouth is medium-full, sharp carbonation, but still slick on the palate, dry but overly so, roast and hoppy bitterness dominating, some cocoa, strong black coffee, more soy sauce, hint of smoke, some phenolic notes near the finish. Not sure this is anything more than a slightly unusual stout... I would have liked to get some more of the character from the yeast. Still, Dieu du Ciel proves to be, as usual, a quality pour.

Bottle shared. Thanks Davido! Lots of dark fruit, some saison yeast character. Raisin, dark plums and some fig. Cacao and berry notes as well. Finish was slightly thin. I was lit by this point.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Imperial diferente de outras do estilo. É menos encorpada e mais cítrica. Álcool aparece um pouco, mas não encomoda. Na minha opnião, não está dentre as melhores da Dieu.
