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.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2007 Rebu sur place en fut (20 oz). Brune noircie, bon collet beige avec une grosse dentelle. Arome de malte très chocolaté, juste assé sucré et très doux et cochon. Goût de malte rôti et très chocolaté, avec une petite douceur de vanille. Divine!

Excellente! Un goût riche et velouté de café. Aucune amertume ou si peut. Une bonne mousse. Se bois très bien, une vraie dégustation.

finally, after a long anticipated wait...here it sits before me. bottled as "aphrodite" it already looks awesome with this hotty on the bottle. it pours a pitch black under a medium sized brown head. the aroma is of perfectly melded milk chocolate and roasted barley with some cream. oh yes! the flavor is melted milk chocolate with the richness of a real candy bar, a pinch of salt and faint hints of vanilla. the palate is creamy and med-full but refreshing too. if i had a million dollars i would fill a pool with this beer. pure goodness. i cannot find a single flaw. i’m not worthy! my first perfect 5.

drank out of pint glass. pitch black with a thick moka head that creates a heavy lacing throughout the beer. aroma is chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malts. a milkshake at 6.5% abv! like the label says, this beer is a beautiful marriage between chocolate and vanilla, though i do think the chocolate is a bit more apparent. thick on the palate, medium carbonation, an almost silky mouthfeel. this is my favorite "everyday" beer, the kind of beer i have in my refrigerator at all times. the only stout better than this one, is aphrodisiaque fresh from the tap at Dieu du Ciel!

YES. YES. YES. What a wonderfull beer, what an symphonious beer, what a beer. Clicking on the words to the right seems pointless because an image is worth a thousand words but this beer is worth a vow of muting. Nothing could be improved. I don’t usually rate beers with impressive grades but this one is worth the perfect score I gave.

Bottle. Full marks, it’s like an imperial. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, and liquorice. Taste is sweet with bitter notes, long lasting. Palate is silky, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy off-white head.

This has everything I love in it. Vanilla, chocolate, coffee, a sweet stout. "Complex, yet well balanced." I couldn’t imagine a better stout.

Might be the best stout on the planet. Pefect balance between dark malt vanilla and chocolate.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2010 Mondial de la Bière de Montréal; WOW WOW WOW, what a gooood beer. Its the first Dieu du Ciel beer that I taste, and this is a near perfect stout. The head is just like the Guiness beer, chocolate, vanilla, sweat coffee taste. Dark black appearance. I also smoke to the owner, and they are really sympatic.
