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.

Stout cacao et vanille, a, a me parle. Cest toujours agrable de se laisser gter par une soire triste de llimination htive, une fois de plus, du club de hockey Canadien. Vivement le retour des Nordiques. La prsence de vanille nous donne une trange impression de bourbon. Il y a quelque chose de doux qui enrobe la bouche dune enveloppe mielleuse. Cest onctueux et dlicat. Cest le genre de bire quon veut garder longtemps en bouche!

Oakes (17164) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2017
Draft. Quite black. Thick (nitro) head. Rich chocolate and a touch of toast...smells sweet. Sweet and chocolate...ok that rich hot chocolatey stuff, honestly this has some good taste but lacks complexity...the nitro...would like more character.

One of the best DDC. This is the reference for the stout. DDC has their magical recipe.

Nitro at Louisville Beer Store. Pours a pitch black with a creamy, beige head of foam. Huge cacao nib nose with some faint vanilla. Deep chocolate notes, toasty marshmallow and almond. Well-balanced with a lingering creamy, coffee-like, cacao nib finish. Awesome.

On tap at Owen's Ordinary in North Bethesda, MD, where it is listed as "Aphrodite." Opaque, near-black with a with a tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of cinnamon, chocolate, milk, coffee, ancho peppers and vanilla. Taste of milk chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, ancho peppers, lactose, cocoa and coffee. It has the ancho pepper flavor, without the heat. A very well balanced flavor profile. Medium/full body and medium carbonation with a velvety mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chocolate and vanilla. Pretty much everything that has those two things is good and this beer is no different.

Bottle at home courtesy of Maakun. Black with thin tan head. Milk chocolate, coffee berry/bean, cocoa powder, vanilla, milk skin, hazlenut, roasted marshmallows. Big sweet and moderate bitter. About medium body, bit powdery dry, bit watery thin velvety feel, soft carbonation. Like the deep roastiness.
