Pours black with a small lasting tan head. This is close to the best non-BA stout i can recall on the nose. Outstanding coffee/vanilla. Taste is very similar - roast, liquorice, bitter. Nothing too complex just a fucking awesome beer thick and flavoursome!

341ml brown bottle poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is opaque brownish black with a creamy brown medium sized head, that reduced slowly. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts and muscovado. Flavours of coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, muscovado and dark bread. Palate is full bodied, creamy texture and average carbonation. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel is delicious, lots of coffee in the flavour.

Perfectly black with an amazing head of creamy nougat colored beauty. NOSE - string coffee notes, slightly sweet.
FLAVOR - deep notes of roastiness. Coffee at the end of the sip, balanced with just a bit of sweetness.

Finally located this at one stop thanks to a shout from Ron. Different than expected, not a true to form IS, doesn’t seem to be what they were going for but a very good beer. Powdery cocoa and roasted malt dominated, well balanced and good tasting. Not a lot of complexity I noticed - I’ll have to try this again 1-off and rate more critically.

330ml bottle at home. black color, small coffee-colored head. Bottled 3/2015. smells of coffee-roast, ash, bitter chocolate, quite nice smell. full body, soft carbonation, almost creamy mouthfeel. tastes of coffee grounds, ash, some bitter chocolate again. finishes with coffee grounds and light ash notes. decent Imp Stout although a bit one demensional. alcohol is well hidden though. decent but ash notes are a bit too overwhelming, overall also rather simple Imp Stout.

Bière très noires avec une belle mousse et arômes de café torréfié, presque brûlé, très intense. Peut-être un tantinet trop, mais ça a le mérite de masquer le fort taux d’alcool.

On nitro at the brewery. Pours a deep chocolate color. Almost black, but some light passes through edges. Beautiful fluffy khaki head that lasts forever. Coffee and coffee. Maybe a hint of booze, but still mostly coffee. There is a roasted malt character in the back. Delicious coffee flavor, but it’s tough to gather any other flavors because the coffee is so dominant. Much like the smell, there is a hint of the roasted malt and some chocolate, but it’s a distant second to the coffee. A little bit boozy and not a lot of carbonation. Medium body. Rich and creamy on nitro. One of the few beers I think is better on nitro.

Drank at ZeeBra 2015 (20-6-2015), thanks Michael for sharing. A thin beer, very ’raw’ beer. Hard hints of roasted coffeebeans, very dominant. Also bitter.

Dégusté en bouteille de 341ml et en fût chez DDC à Montréal. De couleur noir le liquide est complètement opaque. Une mousse beige de densité moyenne est présente. Arôme de grain torréfié et de café. Goût de café et de céréales rotties. Belle rondeur en bouche, quasiment crémeuse. Une finale longue sur des notes de café et une amertume moyenne. Il s’agit d’un produit exceptionnel.
