Purchased a 11.5oz brown twist-off bottle for $4.99

I remember when this beer began to buzz around the beer circuit a few years back. I saw it on the shelves a few years back and I was surprised to see it priced at $19.99 for a small bottle. Well, here it is, years later, and greater distribution provided me with a more reasonably priced bottle. I poured this into my Delirium snifter and the midnight black body formed a mocha colored head of medium sized carbonation. The body is totally opaque and the head provides wonderful lacing. Heavy carbonation lines the rim of the glass. The aroma is wonderfully expressive with massive espresso and cocoa bean notes. The sweetness is fresh ground coffee fills the nostrils and provides a wonderful entry point to the taste. There a remnants of malted milk balls that add anticipation. I am not sure if it is the odd or perfect. Just one of those aromas that seem familiar, yet so unique. The taste is filled with coffee and roasted malts. A big dose of bittering hops adds a wonderful balance of bitterness to the heavy malt body. The high abv is hardly noticeable although it adds a slight warmth to the mouthfeel. The body is rich yet thinned out and dried by the high carbonation. As this beer warms up, the delicate flavors open up a bit more and the sweetness comes out. This is a wonderful beer that is worth the hype. Not your everyday beer, but definitely one that should take up some space in your cellar.

4.5/5  rDev +2.3%

appearance: deep black

smell: fresh brewed coffee, malt

taste: sweet at first followed by coffee bitterness. lingering burn from the alcohol. I wish brewers would put the country from where the coffee is from on the label. The origin can change the flavor dramatically.

mouthfeel: This is just perfect. Not to thick or to thin.

drinkability: I could drink this for breakfast lunch and dinner.

11.5oz Bottle poured into a goblet

A: Slightly opaque black body. Barley any head, caramel color that dissipates very quickly. Decent amount of lacing sticking to the glass on this one

S: Sweet toasty malt goodness with intense coffee burst following. Bits of dark chocolate and vanilla in there. Reminds me of Kahlua, very coffee heavy.

T: Similar to it's smell. A nice balance of bittering hops and bitter-sweet coffee notes all the way down. Semi-sweet chocolate and vanilla caramel roasted malts.

M: Not as thick or syrupy as I expected. Good amount of carbonation and smooth which makes for a very drinkable imperial coffee stout. Notes of bitter coffee linger on the palate for a while and makes you look forward to that next complex sip. It's a sipper for sure.

O: A successful coffee stout from Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel. I'll be seeking out more of their brews. This has a wonderful coffee aroma and taste and I really enjoyed the mouthfeel on this beer. Really drinkable despite the ABV. I'm putting it up on my list with the Speedway Stout.
