On draft at Vices & Versa. Pours deep coppery amber with a creamy parchment coloured headand dense lacing. Aroma: caramel some herbal. Flavour: caramel, toffee, grassy hops. Medium body, great length in which the malts and hop bitterness play from beginning to end. A realy fine example of style.

Bottle: Poured a clear dark brown color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry caramelized malt notes with some nice cereal notes also perceptible. Taste is dominated by dry caramelized malt with light leafy hops notes with some clean cereal notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Good drinkability with right amount of complexity for the style.

A:
Pours the color of iced tea with a couple fingers of airy being fluff that pretty quickly settles to a patchy film then nothing with a little scummy lace. (3.5)

S:
Caramel-tinged toasty malt aromas, some light herbal hops accents. (3.75)

T:
Even-keeled malt flavors with a balanced herbal bite from the hops. (3.75)

M:
Lightish body with medium carbonation, a touch of astringency and a lingering finish. (3.75)

O:
This is a nice, drinkable beer with a good balance of oats-and-molasses flavors and mild yet assertive hop bitterness. Nothing crazy, balanced, tasty. This is probably the most "B" ESB I've ever had but it is definitely not an ESBIPA or anything.
An enjoyable beer that I would have again. (4)

Pours a deep copper color with a one inch white head that dissipated quickly and left some blotchy lacing. Smell is rather mild with toasted malts, some hops and a hint of fresh cut grass. Tastes of sweet roasted malts, caramel, spices and finishes with mildly bitter citrus flavors. Dry mouth feel, slightly astringent quality, medium carbonation.

Dark, deep amber with a lot of cloudiness. Mild head that leaves many spots on the glass.

Deeper toastiness than the color would suggest. Light hop bitterness to the nose.

Leans to the bitter hop side. Nearly astringent from the dry hop and the lack of malt sugars. Not as unusual as some of DDC offerings but it holds its own.

Easily the most pedestrian beer from DDC.

Caramel coloured with a thin white head that dissipates fairly quickly.

Toasted malt in the nose, grassy hops. Not a strong scent.

Flavour-wise, toffee, biscuit and toasted malt make up the brunt of the beer. Hops provide some bitterness but not a lot else. Some slight grassy and earthy flavours.

Highly carbonated, medium bodied. Toasty.

Overall, decent, not great.

Pint split with my girlfriend at the brewpub. From notes.

A - Poured a dark copper, hazy with a cream coloured head. Some lacing and a cap of retention.

S - Herbal and grassy, rye bread. Mild.

T - Earthy, rye bread, and caramel. A slight citrus note.

M - Medium to full body with low carbonation which seems right.

O/D - Easy to drink, smooth, balanced, but not overly complex or interesting. The citrus note is neat. Not a bad ESB, but not great.

Another solid offering from Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel. My first on cask. Special since I love ESB's. Poured a light caramel, lighter highlights. Head, but not much. Smelled of those caramel notes and roasted malts. Just a bit of hops, not much. Taste consisted of balance between the sweet caramel malts, and the bitterness of the hops, this beer works. Mouthfeel was bitter and dry. This is a well-brewed ESB.

A roasty, toasty, malty brew that could fit a number of differnt styles: it would pass as an Alt, and it's darker (though not as viscous) as porters and out-darks a good number of the weaker porters I've had. Most important for me: the dark malt is kind to my aching head.

True to its naming here, the malts are balanced wth a bracing bitterness, and so it is righfully lists as ESB, but its complexity really does make it a genre-buster.
