COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Psytron (1501) - Turku, FINLAND - APR 28, 2015
Smell of vanilla, chocolate. Black colour, dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt. Velvety and slightly ashy palate. Very soft carbon. Both sweet and bitter. Heavy body. Great stuff.

Tonkun (989) - New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle. Dark almost pitch black pour with a big bubbly mocha head that dissipated relatively quickly. Vanilla, mocha, vienna coffee, oak, toffee, cream. Medium body with a light to medium carbonation that lasts on your tongue. Acidic, bitter, oily and sweet coffee finish with whip cream. Like having a relaxing coffee with a creamy cake. Delicate but strong. Nice

Homer321 (2512) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. A ton of chocolate in the aroma. Black pour. Medium brown head. Great lacing. Taste is a vanilla smooth extacy. Pure chocolate as it warms.

TATE (346) - Lubec, Maine, USA - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with minimal head. Vanilla aroma and flavor. A bit of chocolate too. Was great with chocolate as a desert beer. Solid stout.

mircoas (178) - ITALY - APR 19, 2015
33cl @ bottle. 6 euro di bottiglia. Inizio a dire che forse non li vale tutti questi soldi, però la birra è ottima. Stout aromatizzata alla vaniglia (anche se non l’ho sentita) col solito retrogusto di caffé. Più calda rende meglio, forse sarebbe da riprovare.

rdixon77 (1410) - Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2015
Wow, really nice stout. Thick black pour with a khaki ring. Aroma is root beer, vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Taste brings more chocolate and roastiness. Well balanced and very creamy mouthfeel. Perfect dessert beer.

Black as night pour with lighter brown highlights along the edges. A white foam head formed but almost instantly retreated to a ring around the glass. Smells of coffee, roast, tobacco ash, and chocolate rise from the brew. Taste is of roasted coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Medium bodied in nature with a slight creamy mouthfeel from the light carbonation. Aphrodisiaque is a delightful stout that I would love to indulge in again!

Bulk_Carrier (2541) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2015
This was poured into a nonic. The appearance was a nice looking black color with a thin white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than twenty seconds. Stringy lacing wove around the glass. The smell had a strong roasty coffee bean and chocolate to sweet vanilla with an underscore of dark fruits. The taste possessed the strong roasty coffee bean and amplified the sweet level of chocolate to lead into the aftertaste and stroll right on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good sessionable aspect about it. There was a nice roasty and slightly bitter quality rolling over my tongue. Overall, this was a very good American Stout that has a lot going on. I would definitely have it again.

Metalflake (35) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2015
Not what I expected. The last "chocolate stout" I had was Flying Monkeys’ Chocolate Manifesto (which I loved), so I figured this would be along the same lines of intensely sweet, chocolatey goodness. Not so - this really did come across with more of a true stout character - roasty, bitter coffee notes along with vanilla and -yes- chocolate, but in its bittersweet form. Truly delicious, would be wonderful paired with chocolate cheesecake, or as a complement to pears soaked in brandy. Yummy.
