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.

Bottle. Pours jet black with a smallish tan coloured head which slowly falls away leaving good lacing. Great looking beer. Aromas of raosted malt, dark chocolate some vanilla and just a touch of sourness. Plenty of bitter flavours thanks to the bitter chocolate, coffee and toasted malt. Super smooth mouthfeel. Really nice beer.

this cure all witchs brew pours dark like Texas crude, with a small dissipating head. The bouquet is coffee and chocolate. It packs a roasted malt wallop with expresso and chocolate under currents. With a smooth finish, its a well balanced brew.

JohnnyJ (5535) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle from South Bay Drugs. Dark dark brown pour, creamy tan head. Sweet chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, light smokey notes, and quite creamy. This is a very nice desert beer, but you would need to be in the mood. The flavors are quality, but personally the sweetness is to much for me.

MrBeerFanatic (1050) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2010
Pours a dark chocolate but yields a little light with a thick consistency and creamy head. Aromas of strong cocoa, chocolate, sweet vanilla, blended nicely with a burnt oak wood tone(or just roasted malts to be boring). Flavors yield a nice mixture of the burnt malt tones, little chocolate/cocoa, with the vanilla coming through the end. There are noticeable hops but just come through enough in the finish to notice. Sweet but not overly sweet, bitter but not to bitter, light burnt malty aftertaste, complex but not hard to discover all the flavors. This is a great stout, two thumbs up!

Wonderful heavy vanilla aroma with some light, crisp malt underneath. Black in the glass with a quickly fading brown head. Pleasant vanilla and slightly roasted malt notes fading into a fine, lingering cocoa. The beer expends all of its ammo in the aroma and initial taste. The finish, however, is way too fast for me and unrewarding. Ratings be damned - I say worth a try (once) but I will not rebuy.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this beer. This beer was my youngest brothers 100th beer. The beer pours dark brown to black with a tan head. The aroma is vanilla, chocolate and smoke. The flavor is milk chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt and light smoke. The beer tastes a whole lot like cream soda. Medium-thick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Excellent beer. Body and aroma were very consistent with the style. I was amazed and impressed with the balance achieved between the rich malt content and the cocoa/vanilla flavorings. Usually either the cocoa is too overpowering or the vanilla gets lost in the rest of the bold flavors. The great brewers at Dieu du Ciel pulled this one off and I loved it!

Listed at Capones 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

Aphrodite bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Nose is vanilla bean, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is vanilla bean, bakers chocolate and cocoa powder. Some dry malt on the finish. Lots of powder. Tasty overall stout.

paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 24, 2010
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.
