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 of aphrodite from city beer. pours a thick brwon with medium brwon head. the aroma has tons of vanila and cocoa, almost ST levels on the nose. taste is too match, very well balanced, bitter and sweet, chocolate and vanilla, roast and spice, great! palate is great, super smooth, goes down fast, excellent finish and aftertaste. def a top notch stout. i will be getting more of this.

lello4ever (916) - ITALY - JAN 19, 2015
Stout eccezionale. Praticamente nera, con una schiuma beige pannosa e persistente. Aroma non al top. Allassaggio risaltano i sentori di cioccolato, vaniglia, note leggere di malto tostato che si equilibrano perfettamente nel finale appena amaro. Corpo giusto, non troppo acquoso, cremosa e con un alcol perfetto.

Tognetta (914) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 19, 2015
Totalmente negra, espuma marrom de boa formao e persistncia, aspecto cremoso. Aroma carregado de baunilha, chocolate, licor. Paladar tras mais cacau, baunilha, amargor levemente torrado, bem balanceado com o dulor licoroso. Corpo denso, mdia carbonatao. Aftertaste prevalesce o torrado doce. Esperava um pouco mais de potncia no sabor, mas no tem como no gostar, fcil de beber.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2009
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!

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle. Pours almost jet black with brownish ruby highlights and a foamy tan head that lasts a while. Aroma is quite roasty and has notes of vanilla, coffee, dark chocolate, malt and a hint of smoke. Flavour is also fairly roasty and has plenty of of vanilla and coffee, as well as some cocoa, but isnt particularly sweet. Light, creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation and a long, dry, bitter, roasty finish. A really good stout overall, not exactly a dessert beer, as I was kind of expecting, but just a well balanced, smooth, rich and compelling brew. Great stuff.

Flaska p GH till bra pris. Vanilj och cholkad r tydligt i doftbilden. Lagom hrlig och krmig. Mediumkropp och en eftersmak som inte sitter i speciellt lnge men inte s det gr ngot. En mycket bra l frn ett spnnde bryggeri.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Bire noire comme la nuit, aucune lumire ne la traverse, effervescence difficile observer mais qui semble bonne, et surmonte dun col couleur moka, dense, riche et crmeux, qui se rduit tranquillement en collant littralement sur les parois du verre. Armes de malt torrfi, beaucoup de chocolat, du chocolat noir, mais galement du chocolat au lait et du cacao. On note galement certains effluves de caf lger, de levure terreuse, et dun houblon plutt floral, avec un agrable parfum de vanille. Nez trs intressant, intensit et complexit adquates. En bouche, ce nest pas tellement ptillant ou mousseux, onctuosit moyenne au palais. Au got, le chocolat domine, autant le chocolat noir que le chocolat au lait et le cacao, et on a un peu de levure terreuse et dalcool, ainsi quune bonne dose de houblon floral. La vanille semble rester tranquillement en arrire-plan, quoique parfois elle semble ressortir davantage. vrai dire, jai got plusieurs reprises cette bire (toujours en bouteille), et la vanille ma sembl parfois bien prsente, le plus souvent plutt subtile, et dautres fois carrment difficile discerner. Contrairement ce quon aurait pu penser, cette bire nest que trs peu sucre, prsentant plutt une amertume bien franche de faible modre. Les diffrentes saveurs sont bien intgres les unes aux autres, bonne intensit en bouche, complexit qui laisse un peu dsirer cependant, trs bonne bire nanmoins. [Note : Jai laiss vieillir en cellier une bouteille pendant 1 an, le rsultat en a t plutt dcevant. La bire est beaucoup moins intense, des flaveurs de levure pain, de caramel et de mlasse ont pris le dessus sur les chocolats et le houblon qui se sont grandement attnus, alors que la vanille est devenue presque inexistante. Je recommande donc de consommer cette bire la plus jeune possible. Il parat quen ft directement au brouepub, elle na pas son gale]

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.
