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.

Glass at DDC. Creamy brown nitro head on black. Perfect aroma of vanilla and cocoa mix. Literally tastes like a glass of homogenized white milk perfectly mixed with extra chocolate powder. Writing my rating makes me realize it does not measure up to this great beer.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2009 The thickness of this beer is out of this world. Very foamy, lasting head. Aggressive vanilla in the taste, not very pleasing taste to my liking, and a slightly bitter finish, although vanilla finally strikes back in the after taste. If a "mal de coeur", a heartache, is aphrodisiac to you... If you do like that kind of taste, this beer could be the best you could get, especially because of the texture. I personnaly enjoyed the "Déesse nocturne" a lot more and rated it very high.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2009 2.27.09 Draft. Sampled at brewpub in Montreal. Pours thick black body with dark brown head. Awesome aroma, and taste. "Like drinking delicious cement." :::: 2nd TRY:::: 12.02.09 ... Insane explosion of vanilla beans in between the cocoa flavors, one of the best stouts ever. +0.2

grandgenie (259) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2009
Dégusté à la brasserie dieu du ciel à Montreal en demi-pint et dégusté dans un verre de stout direct du fût. Apparence de couleur noir des ténèbres avec une belle mousse. Arômes de vanille, chocolat, cacao et lait en poudre. Une bonne amertume, de la vanille, du chocolat et du caramel au beurre. Une bière d’un belle équilibre, limpide, soyeuse, ronde et crémeuse. On dit la simplicité a bien meilleur goût.

On tap. Pours nearly black with a super thick, cascading head, beautiful looking beer. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, roast, coffee. Flavor is chocolate, vanilla, coffee, roast, burnt sugar. Palate is full bodied, medium carbonation finished sweet towards the front then bitter. A great stout for sure, one of the most beautiful looking pours, great flavor, world class.

MJGG (950) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2009
Verre de 20 oz, à la brasserie de Montréal. Arômes merveilleux de vanille et de chocolat au lait. Robe noire et opaque, belle mousse beige crémeuse, faible effervescence. Extrêmement douce et veloutée en bouche, le chocolat, la vanille et le malt torréfié sont très bien équilibrés. Finale très légèrement amère de cacao. Une stout exceptionnelle !

Draft @ DDC. What a delicious beer. If only it were available locally. Great chocolate nose with smooth balanced taste. Should have had several more but I had to try a draft Peche Mortel and a Rigor Mortis ABT. The bartender said they were working on bottling it without losing its ethereal qualities. Hope they succeed soon.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2009 On tap, DDC. Appearance is near black, with an attractively smooth tan head. Aroma is of vanilla, cocoa, roasts, and some malt. Flavor is a sublime mixture of vanilla, coffee, cream and roasts. Mid-palate mellows the flavor notes allowing time for proper contemplation. All while introducing a touch of sweetness. The finish is slightly bitter, but firmly flavorful and roasty. Overall, I was very impressed with Aphrodesiac, though I prefer St Ambroise’s Oatmeal Stout by a hair. 4.2. 3/11/09 revised: more creamy, roasted, and natural in the vanilla flavor than I remember. This is truly a memorable beer. Served at a perfect temperature to bring out all of the magnificent flavors of Aphrodisiac. Phenomenal stout!

On tap @ DDC, 2 glasses. Black w/ creamy head. Sweet roasty aroma. Flavor - roasty, Dry, cacao, vanilla. Very good, smooth/creamy. Super drinkable. Now my favorite stout and I won’t be able to get it anywhere.

Poured @ DDC. Pours a very dark, chocolate black color; creamy, light brown head with perfect retention and lacing that coats the glass; great pour. Plenty of cocoa, burnt / roasted malts, and bitter chocolate in the aroma; touches of vanilla; more pronounced as it warms. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: beautifully creamy, velvety presence; roasted / burnt malts, bitter chocolate, cocoa, and hints of vanilla / vanilla bean; just a beautiful mouthfeel showing a very tasty, complex, nutty stout; intensely drinkable and generous overall; excellent stuff. Lengthy finish: toasty malt (lasting forever), breadiness, and bitter chocolate; dry cocoa throughout. The vanilla presence is, generally, very soft, secondary.
