Dieu du Ciel Brewing Co.
259 rue de Villemure
Huge chocolate nose on this one. Chocolate is the only aroma I pick up. I'm not sure if the chocolate over-powers everything else or not, but is all I get.
Jet black, no light gets through this. Half finger head from tap pour; it does vanish fairly quickly.
Coffee dominates the flavor, with chocolate playing 2nd fiddle. Tons of coffee on the front-end. Chocolate surfaces in the middle, then once again, succumbs to the coffee. 9.5%, but there is no heat at all!
Medium to heavy, but more so on the medium.
Overall Impression: (9/10)
A fantastic coffee Imperial Stout! Coffee dominates flavor, but doesn't overpower the base Imperial Stout. Extremely balanced between the two. Hell of a beer!
