UPDATED: NOV 30, 2018 brune foncée à belle mousse beige crémeuse. Arômes torréfiés, café et chocolat noir, un peu de bois brûlé et de tabac. Le goût est pareil, café et douceur de caramel-réglisse, des petits fruits noirs avec une pointe vanillée. Amer sérieux de rôti tressé de houblon, se renforçant dans l'étalement. Bel ensemble.

Review: 33cl Bottle of Celestial, Celestial, L'autre Monde, a coffee stout: 6.8% ABV
Celestial, L'autre Monde, "The Other World" in English. On the bottle I translated, "We can not please everyone - and do not try it! Our beers are uncompromising and push the limits of the stylistic requirements to accede to intense and expressive tastes. important notice: drinkers of tasteless bees to be absent!" Bit ballsy, lol!
On pour, massive carbonation, all over the place, very temperamental. All resulting in a massive frothy tanned head and a pitch black stout.
When it finally all settled down it looked pretty good.
Head maintained throughout, and some good lacing.
Aroma is the usual smell of a stout, a little sour as well.
Taste is very interesting. The chocolate taste is very prominent, like a rare dark chocolate, and sure enough I see on their website that they have used "Tree frog" an aromatic dark coffee from one of their local suppliers in Neuchâtel. This taste is quite strong, so now I see why they put the "disclaimer" on the bottle, ha!
Bit too bitter and strong for my liking, but it definitely is an interesting flavour.
Not a bad stout, not as layered as a Guinness but that's not what it is going for, the hops are intense and the coffee and corn all contribute to a stout that has a good strong kick in it.
Worth a try for sure.
