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.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Dégustée en fût sur place à St-Jérôme (verre au coût de $4.25) le 28 juin 2009. Bière noire opaque. Col très épais et très persistant, beige crème, crémeux et compact. Très effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de cacao et de chocolat présente mais pas trop marquée, avec un soupçon de vanille en finale. Très douce, assez sucrée, assez amère. Goût de chocolat au lait marqué. Peut-être un peu trop sucrée, un peu sirupeuse, mais très bonne néanmoins.

En tant qu’amateur de bières noires, l’Aphrodisiaque est un de mes coups de coeur. J’adore son allure noir pétrole opaque et le goût est extraordinaire. On peut goûter des arômes de chocolat et un peu de café, c’est plus sucré qu’un stout normal. Fortement recommandé en digestif avec du chocolat!!!! --------&# As a black beer fan, L’Aphrodisiaque is on my top ten. I like its petrol black appearance and the taste is amazing. You can taste a chocolate aroma and a bit coffee, it’s sweeter than a basic stout. Strongly recommended in digestive with chocolate!!!

A gorgeous blend of bitter cocoa mixed with vanilla create a rich taste that's a unique treat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teddybeer (2192) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 17, 2014
[Thanks to Glouglouburp]. Dark brown colour, almost black with a minimal and quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma has notes of coffee beans, dark chocolate, coconut and vanilla. Flavor is bittery with notes of coffee, coconut, slightly ashes. Dry mouthfeel in the final with a strong presence of alcohol and coffee.

Idiosynkrasie (3711) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
341ml bottle. Pitch black colour with late awakening, small, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Roasty dark malty aroma, hints of liquorice; while warming up hints of vanilla and cocoa make an appearance. Taste is dry, roasty dark malty, slightly metallic; vanilla and cocoa appear in the finish and carry some sweetness with them. Slightly sticky palate without oily texture. Too much vanilla for me; in general modulating the scope of the style (or pushing it to the limits) in areas (catchword: marshmallows) not prefered by me.

Bottle at home. Dark brown color, medium frothy off white head. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. Light smooth creamy delicious roasted chocolate, vanilla, malt flavor. Medium finish. Nice.
