3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a clear medium brown with a small soapy brown head. Aroma of caramel, light chocolate, sweet malts and light perfumy esthers. Taste is caramel, sweet malts up front with some spiciness from the rye and then the peppercorns take over and provide a light tingling sensation on the tongue and then into the throat. Notes of nuts present too but the spiciness of the peppercorns is balanced delicately and adds nicely to the spicy rye. Great beer!

wow. Nez très poivré, goût très poivré. Etrange mélange, à réserver aux amateurs de poivre. Pas pour moi.

Bottle. Clear brown color, good white head. Aroma of caramel malt, pepper and other spices. Flavour: first some caramel malt, then comes the pepper. Strong and good. Great pepper finish. Really surprising. I like it. Only drawback, I find the body too thin.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber light brown. Pretty nice fresh, light roasted, peppercorns, amber slight bready malts. Intriguing. Soft med bodied. Malts, spices and some peppercorn heat in the finish. The aroma was a lot better than flavour. Gets a bit too spicy-xmassy-herbal, loved the clean peppercorns in the aroma. Nice to see another one of these. Hope I’ll get to try more soon.. .

Bottle. Pours amber/brown with not much head. Aroma is spicy for sure though I cannot make out peppercorns. I get brown sugar and mellow, slightly warming peppercorn in the taste. Medium body, a little caramel malt balance. Too much for me but I like the effort!

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 341ml bottle served in a tulip glass.
A: First of all, perfect beer art. Dieu du Ciel makes, IMHO, the most beautiful beer labels ever! Pours a beautiful deep amber color forming a medium to small bubbled slightly yellow head which dissipates quickly leaving a thin layer that remains for a long time. Many lingering lacings are left in the glass
S: Great nose. Strong notes of black pepper, chocolate, toffee, caramel malts and bready yeasts
T: Follows the nose. Strong notes of black pepper and caramel malts. Notes of rye, chocolate and cinnamon. Slightly bitter and peppery end
M: Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Chocolate, caramel and peppery aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Great Spicy beer. Unique experience

BOTTLE. Cola brown in colour with flat white head & good carbonation. Dry on the nose, huge mouthful of rye, pepper & spices which led to an obvious spicy finish... With the peppercorn lingering on well after the mouthful.

Malty aroma, and a clear copper colour. The pepper really comes through on the finish, giving a good spicy tingle on the tongue. Not a classic, but again a really interesting beer from this brewery.
