Pours pitch black with a thin mocha ring which fades quickly and completely. Aroma is vanilla beans, dark chocolate, hints of bourbon. Taste is much the same but very smooth and drinkable, and not as heavy as other Stouts. I still preer Moh-ka, though! cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2009
Labeled Aphrodite. Nice oily deep blackness pour. Total ice cream french vanilla and chocolate chip aromas. Earthy coffee vibes too. Long range of aromas. Body is bold yet still gentle in texture and nuanced tastes. Deep boasty chocolate flavors are mingling with sweet delicate vanilla bean and caramel touches. A very fine beer eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 24, 2009
Aroma is HUGELY chocolate with a big cocoa aroma that is heavenly. The more you breathe in the aroma the richer the chocolate gets. The flavor does not dissapoint, but instead follows with much more than you could ever expect. Pure rich chocolate goodness. Not candylike, not overly sweet, but instead a chocolate designed only to be quaffed in beer. The vanilla flavor comes through in the end, and the mouthfeel is so silky smooth. A purely wonderful experience that should be enjoyed by all. User29624 (1683) - - DEC 24, 2009
Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla. This beer was a lot less sweet than I thought it would be, but it was really well done. The cocoa leaves a bitter taste, but the vanilla balances it out. Good beer, will give it another try for sure. coyotehunter (698) - , Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2009
One big ass thanks to MrBunn!!! Man what a great beer. Aroma of milk chocolate and the smells of heaven. The taste is like a rainbow in liquid form. Chocolate, vanilla and pure unadulterated goodness is what comes from this bottle.

This beer pours an angry dark and has a smallish medium tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, vanilla, dark fruit and a bit of smoke. It is a very pleasant aroma and I wish it was a bit more pronounced. Flavor is also chocolate and coffee dominated with vanilla. Some hops. Feel is powdery but smooth and this is a dry beer. Aftertaste is mildly bitter with cappuccino. Very nice! FredoFreid (1) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2009 does not count
One of my best beers ever. Perfect when sitting by the fire on a cold winter day. Very delicate yet powerfull at the same time. For the rest, the label says it all. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2009
Thanks Tampa Crew for sharing. Pours dark brown/ black with a tan head. Nose is roast, malt, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, cherry, and depth. Flavor is the same sweeping through with Barry White’s smoothness and an awesome palate finishing with vanilla, chocolate, and fruit. Medium to full bodied and pretty darned good.

Bottle. Silky, velvety pure black body that seems to rolls into the glass as one continuous mass that pushes and pulls at is spacial occupancy until finally settling in. Very thin, off-white head that dissipates quickly. The nose is rich and elegant with notes of vanilla beans, subtle roasted malts and rich dry cocoa powder. The flavors are spot on with the smell with silky, oily vanilla (almost caramel) and lightly toasted pecan or walnuts that give it just the slightest bitter dryness that shores up any oily feel. As this beer warms the vanilla becomes robust and the cocoa verges on a roasted espresso. Really really a great beer. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Aphrodite bottle. Pours a rich black color with thick light brown frothy head. Aroma is of cocoa power, milk chocolate, vanilla, light coffee and mild hops. Taste is milk chocolate, vanilla, light roasted coffee and light hop taste. Finishes creamy and silky smooth. This is one helluva stout!
