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.

Pours a dark black with lots of carbonation. Heavy vanilla taste with a nice malty balance almost like heaven. I absolutely love this one.

Ataraxia (352) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Opaque black, thin cappuccino head. Mild aroma of cocoa powder, vanilla, sweetened coffee, toast, and some metallic undertones. Not too sweet, but rather thin and flat. Decent carbonation, smooth, and a light chocolate finish

Pours very dark, with think creamy head. Chocolate, coffee and roasted malts are prominent in the aroma. Smooth and extremely tasty with chocolate, coffee and hints of vanilla. Very enjoyable beer!

Smells heavenly. I wish all stouts smelled like this. Vanilla and tons of chocolate and honey. Nice and strong flavor with a great bitter flavor to balance.

koopa (338) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Listed at Capone’s in Norristown PA as "APHRODITE", I consumed this brew on 4/18/10. From notes... Appearance: Dark as night - lifeless - like dolls eyes, minimal khaki crown, minimal retention, and minimal lace. Smell: Loads of dark cocoa powder with a slight vanilla note. Taste: Same as nose but not as pungent. Mouthfeel: Creamy but a touch thin. Drinkability: Smooth and easy going down. Serving type: nitro-tap Reviewed on: 05-10-2010

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Pours brown/black with a thin brown/beige head. Aroma and taste: bitter dark chocolate, coca beans, roasted malts, mild sweetness, notes of vanilla. Medium body, decent depth. Aftertaste of roasted malts and coca beans... a fairly short finish. Overall a very good dessert brew.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Pours black with a very fine butterscotch head. Aroma is very strong cocoa and vanilla, with faint roasted malt and toast. Taste is very sweet up front, kind of a chocolate milk or mocha latte vibe. This fades to pronounced cocoa bitterness, carried through nicely by appropriately low carbonation and medium body. Beautiful beer the whole way through.

scoobysnak (329) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Great contrasting aroma of both dark chocolate and vanilla. Taste is full of cocoa, vanilla, and maybe even a hint of bourbon.
