Poured into a tulip glass.
A- The beer pours a very soothing hazelnut brown, which is very nice for this type of beer. Makes me feel as if I am sitting down and about to enjoy a nice cup of warm coffee. Resembles a very foamy Americano. Very effective look.
S- First whiff that I get is of the alcohol, the scent is very strong and the alcohol does overpower the other smells a good amount. Once I get past the alcohol though, I get some scents of warm chestnuts and hazelnuts. Coffee bean is the next scent, not all that subtle, but the alcohol does really overpower everything.
T- First taste is something like burnt chestnut and hazelnut, the darker grittier taste must be brought out by the coffee bean. Dark chocolate is the next taste I get and very strongly. Later, towards the very end of the tasting, I get a strong mocha coffee flavor. Alcohol is present strongly throughout the whole thing, but it works so well with everything else that it almost resembles an irish creme coffee. Highly evolving flavors. I still think that the Aphrodisiaque stout is the better beer. But this is a quality brew regardless.
M- Silky smooth and very syrupy but not in a bad way. The texture of the beer is thick, almost making it somewhat chewable. Very effective, makes you feel like you are eating a chocolate covered coffee bean.
Overall, very good brew and probably one of the best Dieu Du Ciel has on offer, but the Aphrodisiaque stout is better. Hope I can find this again after I leave Canada.

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.
