Thanks to a great trade with clockwerk, I have the opportunity to enjoy this incredible Stout.
Pours a burnt-brown to a light black while making its way into the glass. This quickly recedes to a pitch black liquid with no highlights when held to light, when the glass is filled. A frothy dark beige head sits atop the brew that gives way to decent lacing.
I love gourmet coffee and that is what is prominent in the nose. In the background is roasted caramel malt and not much more that I detect.
The taste is phenomenal, like a coffee pie with graham cracker crust. Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel has done an outstanding job in blending the coffee with this brew to make it not too much and just enough to not go overboard. I detect a tad of alcohol and a bit of hop bite, just enough to compliment the brew wonderfully.
The mouthfeel is thin for me. I am used to the RIS style, so don't put too much merit on how I judge the mouthfeel. I will say it is a smooth finish that leaves me wanting another gulp! I was warned to let this one warm, but I don't want to! Which brings us to drinkability.
Considering the powerful (coffee) stout this is, I am shocked at how well it drinks! I don't care what others have said, I could drink all four of these tonight with ease!

A thick black pour into my tulip glass, minimal head and a bit of sloppy lacing left behind. The smell is coffee up front with hints of cocoa and vanilla.
The flavor is a dark roasted coffee, sweet milk chocolate makes it tastes like a latte.. Hints of vanilla and oak are present but that dark roasted malt bill is unbelievably tasty. Medium to full body with low to medium carbonation.
This is a fantastic beer and I'll be pick up some more when I see some! Been wanting to try it for a while and finally found it in NYC - glad It was as good (actually better) as I expected.
