COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

Tap. Moan and Dove Peche Mortel unveiling. To be quite honest, this beer stole the show. This beer showed up the Peche Mortel, which is not an easy feat. Gorgeous sweet sugary vanilla aroma with hints of chocolate. This thing smells amazing. Yummy. Pitch black with a long-standing light tan head. The head is much more durable than the Peche Mortel. Sweet, chocolatey, vanilla notes. Roasts are present as well. Flavor of a roasted chocolate milk with a twist of vanilla. No alcohol detected. This is extremely satisfying and perhaps the best beer I have ever experienced. Great mouthfeel, silky, and amazingly drinkable. I have trouble finding fault with this beer.

Immensely perfect head sitting on pitch black darkness. Emanations of vanilla and chocolate are caught through my nostrils. A first sip reveals a beautifuly sweet and creamy beer with firm character. This beer has multiple layers: sweet cocoa and vanilla but also roastiness and bitterness are present. The beer is a real treat for the palate as it’s got good texture and is very smooth throughout the whole experience.

On tap at the pub. Perfectly opaque black body topped with a thick and lasting beige creamy head. Wonderful malty aroma with evident notes of cocoa and vanilla. There are also some roasty hints. Heavenly taste of cocoa, roasted coffee and hops with a subtle presence of vanilla. Ends with a very long bitter/dark chocolate finish. Very close to perfection. A must, if it is on the board.

Deep black in colour with a creamy coffee coloured head. Aroma of milk chocolate, coffee, cream, sugar, mocha, vanilla and almonds. Flavour was of chocolate, cream, mocha coffee, vanilla. Very rich and smooth body. Finish is amazingly smooth, with a fantastic chocolate bitterness. Dieu du Ciel can make a killer stout.

The star of the evening. Very dark, only the slightest hint of light peeks through. A thick, creamy unending pancake of foam topping. Vanilla/chocolate malt aroma with a hint of rum nearly overpowers in its lusciousness. Chocolaty-smooth on the tongue, delicious alcoholic vanilla carries through to the assertive ending, with bits of raisins to enjoy the ride. Could be a little stronger flavored at the beginning, but that is a quibble; this is a wonderful experience and assures me that DDC can give Kalamazoo a run for the money as stout-king.

Creamy beige head, black. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, coffee. Flavour is heavy on the vanilla but not cloying as I had feared. Very smooth and big. Quite a cool beer. Draught.

Creamy tan head topping black body. Aroma is perfumy/flowery, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, milkshakish (though not nearly as sweet), light coffee. Smooth and creamy full body. This beer is amazing, demonstrating the amazing powers a creative brewer possesses.

As promised cocoa and vanilla are apparent to the nose. Beautiful dark brown opaque colour with a finger of dense head that lasts throughout. Flavour delivers the goods as advertised by the aroma. Wonderful thick, rich body. A true pleasure to drink. On tap.
