This is a coffee stout from the Canadian brewery Dieu du Ciel. It was also part of the news release at Systembolaget at the beginning of December. It costs 34.40 SEK per bottle and is still available at some stores.
Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel (Bottle) 9,5%
It poured a pitch black liquid with a small light brown foam that left some lacing.
It had a strong smell of primarily coffee, but also chocolate, toffee and an interesting smell that I couldn’t quite distinguish, probably related to the added coffee.
The mouth feel was smooth and creamy with a thick body and medium bitterness. The bitterness was more of a coffee and dark chocolate bitterness then a hoppy bitterness. It had a strong taste of coffee but also chocolate, coconut and something burned and roasted.
A fantastic beer! It felt complex and interesting to drink, perfect to sit and sip at for a while. I’m not a big fan of coffee and don’t normally drink it, but this was really nice. Definitely recommended and at this price it’s an absolute steal. Just as with Rigor Mortis I hope to get a couple of extra bottles.

Dieu du Cieal Rigor Mortis Abt (Bottle) 10,5%
It poured a hazy dark amber liquid with a small dirty white foam.
It had a strong smell of yeast, dried fruit, wood and an alcoholic finish that I relate to brandy.
The mouth feel was very smooth and creamy, felt nice in my mouth. The high alcohol made it feel dry though and a bit stingy on the tip of my tongue. It had a thick body and a low bitterness. The flavour was quite strong and the most noticeable where dried fruit, yeast, something sweet and an alcoholic finish.
A very good and interesting beer, maybe a bit to alcoholic but besides that I have no complaints. The alcohol wasn’t that intense it was mostly something I felt after taking a sip. Definitely a beer that is worth it’s money, it’s an absolute find at 35 SEK per bottle and I plan to buy a couple of extra to keep in my storage.
