    341 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 9%. Pitch black colour, moderate brown head. Aroma of roast malts, coffee and caramel, also some vinous notes. The flavour has a well balanced sweetness, notes of roast malts, coffee and dark bitter chocolate, a hint of caramel, also distinct bittering hops. Smooth and pleasant to drink. Excellent beer.

    Almost black colour with dark brown highlights. Mocha-coloured head, good retention and some creamy thick lacing at the base. Roasted malt aromas with a soft mix of well-blended coffee, chocolate and molasses. Hints of nuts. Roasted malt taste with some good bitterness and dryness in the finish. Nicely warming. If you like your stouts without coffee, chocolate added and just tasting the roasted malts, this is for you.

    On tap in a flight @ The Hourglass Brewery in Longwood, FL. Jet black appearance. Not much carbonation with a flatter feel. Flavors of chocolate, light coffee, vanilla....some mild sweet/tartish fruit in the background. Not as complex as some of their other brews though. Didn't really stand out for an IPS...but solid beer nonetheless.

    On tap at the Underground. Black body with a thin rocky cap floating on top. Fuck ya first sniff blew my mind. Big chocolate, hints of dark sweet rum ( think Zyia if you know that rum ) vanilla, and more stuff that is good and yummy. Taste is both creamy smooth and yet somehow abrasive and harsh....... Milk chocolate, ash, chalk, dirt, perfume. Smells better then it tastes. I am hitting hints of the not so high 8.5%. The finish and after taste is huge. I think I hit orange but that might be because I read VBS’s review. I liked it but I’ll never buy it again.

    Tried this at C’est What. Pours black, tiny head disappears quickly and leaves no lacing. Licorice and coffee aroma. Strong coffee flavour, cocoa and smoke. Mouthfeel was a little watery. I am a fan of Dieu Du Ciel but was expecting a little more from this one.

    The beer poured a solid black colour with a thin tan ring for a head. The aroma is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, and plums. The mouthfeel is fill bodied and well carbonated. The flavour is smooth dark chocolate, coffee, and some sweet fruit. Very good, quite decadent.

    Pours an average size foamy head and a pitch black colour. Some sediments on the way out of bottle into glass were noticeable. Has some roasted malt aromas as well as mild spices and notes of caramel and vanilla. The flavours are plentiful with coffee, dark roasted malts and chocolate the main taste. There are also hints of barley, caramel, toffee. Many flavours! Pretty lively mouthfeel, some bitterness but quite inoffensive. Little bit bitter aftertaste. And the alcohol is well hidden, this being a 9%abv brew. Very good. Dieu du Ciel hardly ever disappoints.

    This is one of the best Imperial Stouts that Canada has to offer. A very complex brew from one of Canada's finest craft brewers. The aroma has hints of roasted malt and a ton of cocoa. These flavours come through the taste as well.

    07.09.05 tap at brewpub, RBSG. Black with dark brown head. Aroma is big coffee but also tons of dark, bittersweet chocolate. It’s all creamy love, no overhopped hate. Thick, extra creamy, very, very, very nice all-around brew. Maybe the best balanced impy stout I’ve ever had. Some toasted marshmallow. This is the little brother of Sam Smith’s Impy Stout that’s all grown up and kicking big bro’s butt. For me, it throws a big beat down on Peche Mortel, too. Wow, the highlight of my summer of 2005!

    Poured an opaque black color with a medium sized, tan, creamy head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet chocolate, roast, and vanilla beans. Taste of sweet chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, and light hops, with a creamy mouthfeel. In a side by side tasting, this falls just short of Peche Mortel, but it is still a nice impy stout.
