On the hand pump served in a tulip at Teresa's
A: deeeep black, with a pinky finger's worth of dark tan head
S: not getting as much coffee as the taste would suggest
T: overwhelmingly bitter coffee with little else
O: lack of sweetness to balance the coffee killed this for me. Would love to try it on nitro

Now this was a different IRS... From the first pour, I felt this luscious milky brew was going to bring something different to the table. The nose was disappointing to me at first, showing little horse power and not being completely agreeable to me even if it did showcase a fare good amount of complexity with grainy, woody, smoky, gamy notes at the front and chocolate and coffee setting the backdrop.
At the tongue this beer manifested boldness, with a velvety smooth texture coating my mouth and a taste profile that felt like what I can only describe as a mix of tobacco, wood and cocoa.
The masters at Dieu Du Ciel definitely achieved something of distinction and quality with this beer proving that this style doesn't have to be an hegemony of bitter coffee/cocoa alcoholic bombs. It's a beer I'm happy i came across but it's just not completely to my taste, unfortunately.
