3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle (thx, Alex M.!). Bottled on 2015-02-06. Pours an opaque dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is malty, dark fruits, caramel and maple syrup notes. Taste is roasted malt, boozy and hoppy bitterness, woody. The beer is already 2 years old, but it is still hot and bitter, I am surprised. Not sure if a good way, though :) Probably it would need to be aged for a couple of more years :)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Dark, brown body but when held to the light, more reddish in color. Has a nice tan head, 2 fingers.
Smell: Faint, sweet smell. As it warms, maple syrup aroma gets stronger. Smell reminds me of maple taffy poured out on the snow at a sugar shack, nice.
Taste: The taste backs up the smell with strong malty, maple flavors. Very sweet, but kind of one-dimensional.
Mouthfeel: This is better. Warming up, feels thick & chewy with fairly active carbonation. Caramel and maple syrup make if boozy & creamy, warming the mouth.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle-conditioned, 2015(?). Opaque, burnt umber color; super thin head; some small specks of sediment floating at bottom. Sweet, dessert aromas of custard, maple syrup, & vanilla. Flavor starts off with toffee & dates as you’d expect; maple notes in the middle leading to a roasted malt aftertaste. Medium-light body with moderate carb & a dry a finish. Warms up to have a sharp yeast note along with some booze, too. Overall it’s on the sweet side with the addition of maple syrup, altho the maple doesn’t dominate the flavor at all.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in Seattle. Thin ring foam, rich and dark malty brown. Deep raisin, dark fruit skin, sweet oak and alcohol on the nose. Full body, leathery banana and brown sugar. Some alcohol burn at the finish. Maple is present but is a faint overtone. Malt is rich, nicely metallic and a touch chalky. Delicious and pretty unique. Ruddy, chunky body... perfectly rough. Very nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- Boozy, oak, iron, burnt caramel, subtle smoke, subtle cherry.
A- Dark mahogany brown color, dark liquid, beige head.
T- Strong oak, booze.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, boozy finish.
O- With 8 months of age on this I can’t decide if I should have drank it sooner or let it age more. Not getting a whole lot of maple. I think it adds to the booziness and woody notes more than anything. Maybe adds a touch of smoke too. Too much wood and not enough maple. Overall, it’s good but I expect a lot more. I’ve been mostly let down with Dieu du Ciel. Quite possibly a bit over hyped and a bit over priced for what you get.
