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.

Just a slight cut below DdCs other big Stout, the Peche Mortel. Dark engine-oil brown-black with a thin and vanishing crema coloured cap. Coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate booze and roasted malt waft up and atom. Its definitely a dessert beer, its sweet but not cloyingly so and the hint of booze is rounded out by heavy vanilla and chocolate. Its a thick, oily tongue-coater with mild carbonation. Babe! Schwing!

Unde (532) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Black beer with head going to the sides. Aroma has vanilla, lots of dark chocolate, cocoa and roasted malts. And what a taste! Straight 10/10! There is sweet vanilla, dark chocolate, cocoa beans and some roasted malts to balance the sweetness. Quite full body with low carbonation. For a sweet tooth like me, this was exceptional beer, just mind-blowing.

andersand (529) - Malm, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2009
Nice pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma is very sweet of vanilla and cocoa, light roasted and somewhat acidic malt but mostly just sweet. Flavour is better than what the nose promises with lots of thick malt, well integrated cocoa, vanilla, caramell candy and coffe. The body is creamy and rich which makes the beer a pure joy to drink. Perfect dessert beer with cheese as its not too heavy yet still packs lots of flavour.

As deep a black as you could wish for, this Americanized "Aphrodite" from Dieu du Ciel chews up all light and sits underneath a creamy mocha/brown head that leaves good windowpane lacing as it condenses. Smells of chocolate syrup, french roast coffee, and a bit of Vanilla Coke. Flavors meld well, the chocolate is less like a sweet syrupy version and more like hot cocoa powder, the vanilla creeps up at the end, and the coffee is understated, much more subtle than Peche Mortel. Hops are barely evident, unlike the dark malts that provide the foundation for all other flavors. Slightly thin for a stout, Ill call it medium body. A bit more carbonation than others, and with only a slight bitterness, this is a fairly easy drink.

Bottle. Nearly black. Lacking any real head. Aromas are as follows. Vanilla, chocolate, rockets candy,espresso and maple. Lots of flavor. Oatmeal, coffee, roasted malts, lots of chocolate, cocoa, and a nice burnt sweetness. Very long and bitter finish. I take points away based on the mouth feel being a bit too thin. Overall, this is fantastic.

doublebock (523) - California, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Velvety black color with thin tan head. Aroma of port, coffee gounds and milk chocolate. Enormously complex palate with big flavors of rum, vanilla, roasted malt and a mocha espresso and tobacco finish. Wow, this one is special.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2010 Draft at Volo. Lovely beer. Pours tan with small tan head. Huge vanilla nose with dark chocolate. Taste has more vanilla and dark chocolate, sweet syrupy body. Nice bitter chocolate finish.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2010
12oz. Bottle from VBM in Buffalo. Pours a practically black, opaque body with a large fluffy dark tan head with not much retention. Aroma is really nice lightly roasted cocoa and vanilla as advertised with some sweet caramel notes. Flavor is toasted malts, chocolate with a light bitter finish. Lightly carbonated, smooth, medium body. Really solid, simple stout.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - NOV 30, 2014
Densa e nera con sottile velo di pannosa schiuma beige chiaro. Al naso e al palato un delicato cocktail di cioccolato al latte, vaniglia, malto e zucchero caramellato con lievi sentori tostati. Corpo medio, struttura vellutata, effervescenza gentile; una stout equilibrata, setosa e non impegnativa.

11.5oz bottle split with DarkBeerChick. Dark brown body with a quickly receding tan head. Ruby highlights. Aromas of cocoa, vanilla, roasty, some light bourbon and sweet, creamy fresh coffee. Flavors follow the aromas. Starts roasty, slides into fresh coffee, cocoa comes in, vanilla all the time. Medium mouthfeel/body. Ends with a superb lingering roasted/coffee/hoppy finish.
