Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Also known as Aphrodite.

Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

Poured from bottle into porter glass.

pitch pitch black, a bit of dark chocolate brown reflecting in the stem of the glass. 2 finger coca-cola head which dissipates moderately quick to almost nothing, but incredible lacing, huge rings in the back, but tons of consistent spots on the drinking side.

N: Cocoa and vanilla beans are showing their faces, rich espresso is also very present. Behind it are some sweet, but roast, toasted bread, malts.

T: Mild and delicious. Quite chocolatey at first, double double coffee hitting hard on the aftertaste, with a sweetened coffee bitterness, but not very bitter at all. Well balanced.

M: Not a very thick stout, a little chewy, and nice smooth carbonation. Goes down real well. Cant feel any alcohol.

O: A rather sessionable stout, id maybe go for a second if i had one! I think ill pick this up again. Its a real go-to stout like the st ambroise oatmeal stout, however this is better.
