Dieu du Ciel: Aphrodite

Memorial Day means staying in bed all day making the Lumberjack watch Veronica Mars.  It also means trying a new beer!

Dieu du Ciel Aphrodite (Stout, 6.5% ABV, also called Aphrodisiaque) is delicious.  It's the chocolatiest stout I think I've ever had, but the chocolate flavour is nice and delicate.  It would be great with vanilla ice cream if I was still allowed to eat sugar.  The beer is dark dark brown and very viscous; it really coats the glass.  It's sweet, but not too syrupy, and has a hint of roasted notes to it.  It has a nice low ABV - which is especially good since it would be easy to drink a lot of this.  It's a little pricey, though - $6 for a 12oz. bottle.  But hey, it's Canadian.

Bella was not quite as excited about it as we were.
