So I got the Aprodite version of this one. It came in a screw top bottle and poured a deep murky black with the slightest shades of brown on the edges. Small one finger tan head.

Nose is semi-sweet 60% chocolate with some roasty toasty malts. The level of vanilla in the nose and taste comes off as more of a pure vanilla extract rather than anything artificial or fabricated.

Mouthfeel is creamy and velvety. This beer is inbetween a sipper and a session. As the bottle says this should go perfect with deserts of many kinds and I wish that I had a fancy chocolate cake right now.

My first impression on Dieu De Ciel is fairly good and I think I'll be back for some other offerings rather soon. I'm surprised it took me so long to try one of their beer's.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

11.5-ounce bottle poured into a stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a near-black with a short tan head. Lacing minimal.

Aroma: This beer has an attractive set of aromas with black coffee, dark fruit, cocoa, vanilla, coffee beans and dark chocolate all represented.

Taste: This is a tasty, complex beer - the taste is close to the nose, with roasty black coffee accented by cocoa and vanilla the dominant theme.

Mouthfeel: It's also not as thick and sludgy as I had guessed. It's very drinkable.

Overall: A beer to seek out. The complex flavor makes this a unique stout - it's full of flavor, and very distinct. A great beer to dip, savor, and enjoy.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: 4.25 Dark black, pours thick with a small, tan head that leaves quickly.

S: 4.25 Roasted malt and coffee with lots of vanilla and a bit of caramel.

T: 3.5 Not quite as nice as the nose. Mostly roasted malt bitterness and a good dose of vanilla. Bittersweet chocolate at the end.

M: 3.5 Looks viscous on the pour, but actually a little thin.

O: 3.75 Looks and smells great, but not as good as I was hoping. Taste and mouth feel are lacking. Definitely prefer peche mortel.
