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.

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.

Cola brown/black, half finger khaki head. Smells of vanilla, cocoa, anise, caramel malt. Taste is a slightly spicy roasted hop with some vanilla and dry non sweet cocoa. Very little sweetness thin mouthfeel, light carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Almost perfect beer in my opinion. Perfect for dessert. Dominant chocolate scent with a touch of vanilla. Color is almostnpitch black, no light passing through it. Pretty sweet taste of cocoa, coffee and vanilla. One of my all-time favorite ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is now my go-to stout. Dark brown pour, with a medium tan head, good lacing. Well balanced flavor of roasted malts, with notes of coffee, vanilla, cocoa. Smooth finish.

Nera, ricoperta da una cremosa coltre di schiuma beige, soffice ma compatta, molto persistente. Al naso il richiamo dell’orzo tostato e del caffè in grani, del cioccolato amaro e della vaniglia; più in sottofondo sentori che ricordano il tabacco ed il cuoio. L’aspetto è del tutto simile a quello di una robusta imperial stout, ma questa Aphrodisiaque di alcool ne contiene solo il 6.5%: la sensazione palatale e l’intensità del gusto sono altrettanto paragonabili a quelle di una imperial stout, fatta eccezione per la ovvia minor presenza dell’alcool. Poco carbonata, morbida e cremosa in bocca, corpo medio, stupisce per l’elevata intensità di caffè, vaniglia e cioccolato amaro: la bevuta è a tratti quasi “polverosa”, quasi a simulare la presenza del caffè macinato e del cacao in polvere. Arriva anche qualche leggerissima nota di prugna disidratata e di tabacco, ed un finale che vede la predominanza dell’acidità e dell’amaro del caffè, assieme ad una leggera luppolatura resinosa che aiuta a ripulire il palato, lasciando una scia di cioccolato amaro, vaniglia e tabacco.

Pouring oil to my glass, thin brown head is creamy and long, good lacing. Mild sweet aroma, dark chocolate and cocoa like add says, lightly roasted malt. Round and soft, bitter roasted, medium body, long roasted finish with chocolate and cocoa and vanilla there balancing. Great dessert, well-done beer, great flavors, roasting balancing from getting overly sweet, nice :)

Draught in St Jerome. Rich sweet chocolate and vanilla all the way from aroma to flavors, feels like oreo cookie ice cream in-a-brew. Quite sweet overall but a fun and tasty dessert brew.

Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Brune très opaque, presque noire, avec un mince, mais très mince, col de mousse mocha qui réussit tout de même à laisser une fine dentelle sur le verre. Nez de chocolat, sucre d’orge et vanille. Très ronde en bouche, la langue ne démentis pas le nez, c’est chocolat noir, vanille/caramel, avec notes de café et malt torréfié, le tout finissant sur une bonne amertume houblonnée et des effluves d’alcool qui viennent balancer le tout en fin de bouche.
