4.18/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- This poured a hazed bronze into a small snifter. A fingers width of light tan head, retention is excellent, only settles to a thick froathy cap. Lacing coates the glass even when swirled around, visible carbonation.

S- Definitely more reminiscent of a BSDA, tons of dark fruits. Smell is sweet as well, caramel and brown sugar. It's somewhat bready and I detect a hint of spice too.

T- Nice balance of the dark fruits and sweet malt. There's also a herbal earthy type quality to this. The finish burns a bit from the spice and alcohol.

M- Velvety smooth average body. Superb feeling going down, a touch dry.

D- I love me some Dieu du Ciel. ABV could catch up to you quick as I'm fairly flushed in the face, but an excellent sipper on this cold Festivus night. There will be no airing of grievances on this brew!

3.33/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

$ 5.99/11.5 oz bottle at Vintage Estates, Boardman, OH
Bottle dated 1 4 at 40 degrees into chalice
Weak aroma of malt and yeast phenolics
Head small (1 cm), light brown, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to partial 1 mm ring
Lacing none
Body medium brown, cloudy
Flavor of dates and figs, possibly some raisins as well; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate full, creamy, lively carbonation

Although totally lacking a head and lacing and being only medium brown, in other characteristics this resembles a quad. The alcohol, while not noticeable in the flavor, makes itself evident in the following stomach burn. Pretty weak overall, this may be a good gateway beer for someone afraid of quads.

3.96/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

I have no idea how old this bottle is - the notches on the numbers on the side of the bottle seem to line up with a 1 and a 0; could that possibly mean this is from 2010? I've had it in my DBF in the cellar for awhile, but I wouldn't have guessed any more than a year. . . .

A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. The body is the color of iced tea - murky or hazy iced tea - but when backlit it's more mahogany or even ruby. Small thin khaki-colored head on top disappears immediately. No real lacing other than some short-lived "legs" after each sip.

S: Brown bread, brown sugar and spiced apples - think those mulling spices you put in cider. Also a touch of alcohol is noted.

T: Similar to the nose, I get apple pie-type flavors: overripe apples, brown sugar and some spices (cinnamon, maybe cardamom). Some bread dough too. Alcohol is fairly well hidden on the palate, but shows up as a drying element in the aftertaste; heat is felt in the belly right away.

M: It's low in carbonation and a little watery for such a "big" style (and given the high ABV).

O: Good but not great.
