Pours a black color with a caramel colored soapy head. Has an aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Sweet start. Roasty, chocolate taste with some awesome vanilla notes. Very creamy. The chocolate flavor is exquisite. Would love to try this on nitro. punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Black pour with a small, short-lived, tan head. Bitter black coffee aroma with notes of chocolate, sublte vanilla, pronounced hops, touches of dark fruit, brown sugar and a little vgetalness. Lots of strong dark roast coffee flavor with creamy vanilla, a touch of caramelized brown sugar, creme brulee, and some hop bitterness on the finish. Oily, medium-full body with moderate carbonation.

341ml bottle. Pours black with a nice toffee coloured head that doesn’t stick around. Complex nose of fresh chocolate and vanilla with espresso notes. Stunning mouthfeel; like liquid velvet. Super full bodied yet easy going. When introducing most ladies to ’dark’ beer this is a great place to start. jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 18, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a small tan head leaving significant lacing on the glass. Coffee smell and taste. Medium mouthfeel. Very smooth. Tasty beer. Jow (4170) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle at beerbistro in Toronto. Due to the standards board of Ontario they pay someone to black over the word Aphrodisiaque with majic marker because somehow its offensive. What’s not offesive is this terrific beer a great looking black/purple pour with nice little head. tastes of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, and roasted bitterness. Very nice.

Aroma: The nose has lots of chocolate, some coffee, and roasted malts
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color capped by a brown head
Flavor: The taste is also rather malty with a big dark chocolate feel, some bitterness in the finish
Palate: An extremely smooth, easy drinking stout, with a pretty full bodied feel
This one has some really good chocolate and malt flavors, and I thought it worked really well. The bar displayed this beer under the name "Aphrodite," but I guess that’s some sort of political correctness working its magic... Anyway, it has a really interesting chocolaty feel to it that’s a little different. The bitterness in the finish kind of had a dark chocolate feel to it. I really enjoyed this one.
Bottle, Opaque w/ slight purple/mahogany at edges w/ a frothy mocha head, rich chocolate aroma tinged w/ roasted notes, sweet chocolate and roastiness dominate profile w/ the roasted flavor lingering, slightly overcarbonated bite at finish BOLTZ7555 (3028) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Jet black body produced a thin latte head that left little webbing. Aroma is vanilla, roasted coffee bean, cocoa, and oak. Flavor shows lots of dark bitter chocolate and burnt brown sugar. The alcohol is present but doesn’t overwhelm the palate. Good not great. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2010

Pours a perfect black with a nice java brown head. Aroma is plastic chocolate with cocoa nibs dispersed casually. Flavor is plastic-smoked chocolate and cocoa dust. Average mouthfeel. Not bad, but not fantastic.
Bottle. Aroma has notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, espresso, cheap bourbon, damp wood and deep roasted malts. Very dark brown hue that sits black in the glass with a brown tinge near the edges. Very little head but what was there was dark tan foam that completely disappears and leaves no lace. Taste is sweet and roasted bitterness. Palate is medium bodied and watery soft with bitter finish. Overall a good brew that’s just above average. I did not enjoy the damp woody bitterness on the finish. There’s something just a little off there.
