Nästan svart med ett tätt, mellanbrunt skum. Doft av kaffe, mörk choklad, någon mörk frukt och aningen rök. Fyllig rund smak med rejält med kaffe, men även riktigt mörk choklad, aningen lakrits, en liten dov mörk fruktighet, avslutningen är rejält torr med kaffebeska. En fin imperial stout med bra balans mellan sötma och beska. Hopmaestro (1654) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2016
Aroma from dark chocolates, dark bread, slight licorice. Taste is really dark and almost burnt malts, light tar and chocolates. A great no-bullshit impy without fuss, just grande. Enteogenisk (162) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2016
(33 cl bottle in wine glass.) Pours black and peacefully leaving a halfish to a full finger light brown/beige frothy head. Sharp aroma with sweet malty coffee. Alcohol piercing a a bit, not sure it is temperate enough. Palate is full like a creamy espresso with a quite high but thin bitterness. It is like coffee.. Great!

Pours black with a foamy brown head. Aroma of cocoa, anise, smoke, caramel, dark roasted malt and dried dark fruits. Flavor is moderately sweet with notes of smoke, molasses, anise, fig and caramel. Full bodied. Slick/creamy mouthfeel. Lasting roasty bitterness in the finish. What else would you expect from Dieu de Ciel. Solid

11.5 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 10/29/2015. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, caramel, toffee, toasted dark bread, raisin, plum, fig, and date; with lighter notes of licorice, smoke, char, leather, tobacco, and roast/toasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, caramel, toffee, toasted dark bread, raisin, plum, fig, and date; with lighter notes of licorice, smoke, char, leather, tobacco, and roast/toasted earthiness. Moderate herbal/pine hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, caramel, toffee, toasted dark bread, dark fruit, light smoke/char, leather, tobacco, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop flavors; with a great roast/hop bitter/sweet balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from roast/hop bitterness that increases through the glass. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/silky, and sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an incredible Russian imperial stout! All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering. kryon (3558) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2016

Bottle from SB.
Pitch black with a medium big thick tanned head.
Big rich nose of coffee, charred meat, chocolate and a pinch of dark fruits.
Taste is sweet and roasted with licorice, chocolate, alcohol, ink, resin and dark fruits. Big long bitterness.
Ful bodied, soft carbonation, oily, hot like chilis.
A bit too much alcohol and bitternss, but it’s nice and genuine. Really didn’t have any problem drinking it. Don’t let it warm too much. Might be a candidate for aging. omhper (25157) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2016
