Dieu du Ciel Aphrodite and Dernier Volonte are back
Dieu du Ciel Aphrodite...$4.49 / 11.2oz
Black ale with aromas and flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt. The vanilla and cocoa marry nicely, without out-competing each other, to produce a surprisingly well balanced beer. This beer is mildly hoppy, but the cocoa introduces a touch of bitterness. Its colour may be intimidating, but it is a very smooth beer within reach of most beer drinkers. This highly appreciated dessert beer is brewed with organic fair-trade cocoa and first rate vanilla beans.

Dieu du Ciel Dernière Volonté (Last will)...$3.99 / 11.2oz
Blond Abbey-style beer "Bottle conditioned"
ABV = 6.5%
"Dernière volonté (French for "Last Will") is a mix of Belgian and English brewing traditions. Complex flavours of hop flowers and spicy, fruity esters from our belgian yeast are perfectly balanced with the robust flavours and aromas of malt. The finish is commandeered by an assertive aroma from dry-hopping." -- brewery
