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.

MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2009
11.5oz bottle, labeled Aphrodite. body is black with no color at edges. head is tall and fluffy, dark tan/sienna. aroma is vanilla, chocolate malt, almost like a black & white malt shake. yes, milk chocolate syrup, and marshmallows too. flavor is roasted chocolate malt, some baking chocolate and then vanilla & milk chocolate too. dryish and a little bitter in the finish, with a roasty dry aftertaste. nice profile for a beer that’s only 6.5% ABV. lots of thin lacing all up & down the glass.

Calisky (685) - ALSACE, FRANCE - SEP 13, 2014
Mondial des bières. Couleur noire, bonne mousse beige. Fort nez chocolat cacao, parfum vanille, note de café. Gout chocolat cacao doux, note vanillée. Super légère et cremeuse, ronde en bouche, belle balance. Sublime!

worldbeertaste (1634) - AUSTRIA - SEP 8, 2014
Deep dark brown with a tan lacy lasting head. Deep smell of dark chocolate with coco and lots of sweet malt. Taste of sweet chocolatey and dark malt, with soft cherries. Nice and complex with a biter sweet chocolatey finish. Usually such a taste would only be found a higher abv beer.

Bootlegger007 (44) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2014
Vanilla and slight cocoa and malt aroma, pours black with a small off white head, strong flavour of vanilla, I found the it sulphary bitter on the pallet on the tart side, I did enjoyed it but not my favorite interpretation of a stout

KansaiBeerLvrs (2028) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle from my local supermarket. Served in an antique crystal snifter. It has a fantastic rich cocoa aroma, not as complex as I expected but just great. A soft velvety texture with round carbonation and a medium body. The taste is very rich cocoa, vanilla, roasty, chocolate, savory umami richness.

Bozo_skeleton (498) - Grenoble, FRANCE - AUG 27, 2014
Noire d’encre, petit collet brun de fines bulles. Aromes superbement équilibré entre chocolat, la vanille et malt rôti. Le palais est relativement rond et onctueux, l’amertume cacaoté du final est assez longue sans être sèche. Hummmmmm

355ml bottle from The Only Cafe. 6.5 alc./vol. Pours a dark brown colour with 1 finger of tanned head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor matches the aroma with notes of dark chocolate and has a dry finish. Moderate carbonation.

Butelka 341ml. OCZY : czarne piwo o średniej wielkości jasnobrązowej pianie. Piana jest trwała o rożnej wielkości pęcherzykach. NOS : pierwszy niuch to uderzenie wanilii! Takie podobne do lodów waniliowych. Mocnym aromatem jest również czekolada. Dalej wyczuwam śmietanę i kawę z mlekiem. Musze podkreślić, że aromaty tego piwa są niebiańskie. Jeszcze tak przyjemnego aromatu u stouta nie czułem. No może Rogue chocolate stout mógł delikatnie to przypominać. Dalej aromat piwa kojarzy mi się z różnymi pralinkami czy czekoladowymi smakołykami. Nawet M&Msy tak nie pachną. USTA : kremowe piwo o konsystencji śmietany i lekkim nasyceniu. W smaku jest równie dobrze jak w zapachu. Poezja. Tutaj wanilia i czekolada grają główne skrzypce. Aksamitne w buzi. Słodkość tego piwa przypomina subtelnie posłodzone kakao. Gorzkość natomiast jest delikatna i nie zalega. Nawet posmak nie cierpnie jak to się dzieje z kawo podobnymi stoutami. Tutaj aksamitność i kremowość jest na całej długości. Nawet Rogue nie ma tak przyjemnego, klarownego i bogatego posmaku. ODCZUCIA : zwaliło mnie to piwo z nóg. Nie spodziewałem się takiej subtelności. Pyszne i satysfakcjonujące każdy wymóg jaki można byłoby sobie postawić piwu w tym stylu. Gorąco polecam. OCENA : smak : 9/10 pijalność : 8/10 styl : +2

haukur (1305) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - AUG 16, 2014
Label is a bit messy so I have no idea how old this is. Black with a dark brown tone when looked upon in a light. Cocoa is dominant in the aroma, slight whisker of vanilla, coffee and dark chocolate. Bitter when it hits the tongue, huge sense of coffee when it hits the mouth. Finish is medium bitter, a bit on the dry side. Very pleasantly surprised just how far away from sweet this is. This is very good considering it is quite small in abv.

Bottle. Wow this is good! super smooth body with perfectly balanced roast flavours. The additives work so well in this. Up there with the Peche Mortel.
