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.

Demens (789) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 27, 2021
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2021 0,341 bottle. Thick black colour with medium lasting foamy, light brown head. Aroma: Coffee bean, fresh espresso, dark chocolate, coco powder, but also vanilla and a hint of dried plum. Taste: Has a brutal malty start with some rye-like sourness but very balanced. Than the bitter mouthfeel kicks in. Has some flourish tone with nuts, and also with the espresso/dark chocolate kind of bitterness. Very well balanced. Has a slightly oily texture. Medium/full body with soft carbonation. Long lasting earthy and dry/bitter finish with some soft almond-like sidetones. Masterpiece!

GoufCustom (3017) - HONG KONG - MAR 14, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2021 341ml bottle with twisted cap bought at Cave Beer Point in Mei Foo. Looks: Opaque deep Cola blackish brown colour with a ring of dirt-like yeast sediments; One-quarter finger head and soapy beige foam which fades in 15 seconds; Fair sticky lacing and zero carbonation. Aroma: Very fragrant roasted dark malt, with strong cocoa, strong vanilla, Bourbon, rich cream, strong caramel, strong sticky toffee, roasted coffee beans, alcohol, liquorices, sugar, biscuits, earth, yeast, thin lemon and faint grass. Wow! Taste: Mid to light sweet dark malt, with strong roastyness, strong burnt toast, strong dark chocolate, vanilla, strong black coffee, caramel, toffee, traces of peat, light cream, Cola, floral, light sugar, strong earth, spices, yeast, lime, strong bitter hops and strong grass. Body: Mid to full body. Very slick and creamy palate. Mouth Feel: Strong dark maltyness in a quite thick and creamy background. Surprisingly low sweet given the strong vanilla and cocoa and aroma. Very burnt toasty and loads of roasted black coffee and dark chocolate, backed with a trace of peat smokiness (amazing!). Notably floral and earthy hops, yeasty limey with strong grass to round. Incredible! Hoppiness: Earth, thin lemon and faint grass in nose. Floral, strong earth, spices, lime and strong grass in taste; Bitterness - malt and hops - is strong yet subtle for a lasting, close to high-level bitter roasted dark malty finish. After Taste: Fairly dry. Toasty roasted coffee and strong bitter to mouth. Comments: This one is surprising in many ways: a rich cocoa and vanilla aroma with Bourbon usually means strong sweetness, but its taste is anything but, with lively roasted coffee and burnt toast backed with very earthy limey hop bitterness, I am simply amazed at every sip. A classic!

Goldbarren (4129) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JAN 24, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2021 Ein tiefschwarzes Bier mit wenig Schaum. Und vom Aroma her ist es einfach nur wunderbar: Es hat tolle Aromen nach Vanille, Kakao, Dunkelschoko, Zimt und nochmals Vanille. Das ganze in einer Harmonie, die seinesgleichen sucht. Das einzige, das ich bemänglen könnte, ist dass es keine schöne Schaumkrone hat. Hat mir wirklich sehr gut gefallen.

Excalibur123 (670) - Soria, SPAIN - JAN 2, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2021 Vierte negro opaco con media corona de espuma que perdura en la copa, aromas a cacao, café expreso, regaliz, vainilla y frutos negros; en boca entrada potente con amargor medio, siguen notas a cacao y vainilla, cuerpo medio pleno y bajo carbónico, largo retrogusto amargo y seco, al tener poco alcohol resulta fácil de beber, buen ejemplo de estilo.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2020 La petite touche de vanille en finissant apporte une belle finale à l'amertume de cette stout au cacao. J'ai été agréablement surpris.

corkyrory66 (5138) - BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2020 Pastry stout de 6,5 % abv, avec fèves de cacao et gousses de vanille. Ma bouteille de 34,1 cl, était à 22 mois après sa date. Mon exemplaire répondait au nom d'Aphrodite .. une parente très évidente de l'aphrodisiaque mentionné sur le site .. Couleur noir intense, à l'opacité très forte. Mousse brun foncé, soyeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt torréfié, chocolat noir, fèves brutes de cacao. 1ère bouche souple, à l'entame café/bois brûlé/cendres de bois. Arrière-bouche qui est davantage sur un dry stout qu'un pastry .. 2ème bouche avec beaucoup de bois brûlé et un peu de cacao Arrière-bouche qui fusionne mieux les saveurs Longueur qui garde un beau caractère, mais on reste dans le dry .. Jambes finement huileuses, longues. Levure boisée, correcte. Alcool bien, un point au-dessus de son niveau, il peut développer la longueur, mais n'arrive pas à tout exprimer Finale agréable, mais sans merveilles .. CONCLUSION : malgré le nom de cette bière, on n'est pas envoûté par la belle .. Oh Aphrodite, le doute m'habite … Je veux dire par là d'abord que tu n'es pas dans ta catégorie, non pas celle des aphrodisiaques, mais celle des pastry stout … Je suis désolé de te le dire Aphrodite, mais tu es une dry … (sorry). Ensuite je trouve que tu es très largement surcotée sur le site, mais les dégustateurs ont sans doute été obnubilés par ton nom, ou bien tu les as envoûtés .. eux … mais pas moi !! Il y a une autre réponse d'ailleurs Aphrodite, c'est que tu vieillis mal .. Sorry bien sûr ... (8/5/8/4/16)

Gwilbreuf (296) - FRANCE - SEP 4, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2020 Robe noire. La texture est très soyeuse, en bouche prédominent les malts rôtis et le cacao, la vanille se sent bien également et vient adoucir l'ensemble. L'équilibre est remarquable.

midovark (3995) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 3, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2020 Bottle shared at home. Pours jet black with brown head. Nose is dark chocolate, roasted malts, light coffee notes. Taste is dry dark chocolate and cocoa powder, light vanilla, a smoky touch even. The balance is simply mindvlowing here and while it might not be the most complex beer ever, but so very well rounded. Lovely.
