Aphrodisiaque's unrevealing, bewitching black body is wooing me in for closer inspection; how can something this plainly dark and nebulous be so fetching, so beckoning? Its head is thick enough to make me think I'll have to chew my way through a pillow before being able to get at that oily, slick liquid beneath it. Already I feel infatuated and curiously enticed.

I don't mean to be biased but I am. I love chocolate, I love decadent desserts, I love Dieu de Ciel and I love indulging in the richest, most rousing stouts. The possibility of me not being completely enamored with (if not aroused by) the smell of this beer was possible but not probable. There's no sense using flowery language, it smells just downright heavenly.

The human tongue uses on average somewhere between 4000 and 10000 taste buds and you can bet that Aphrodisiaque puts every single one of them to work. Nevermind gourmet desserts - this is the pinnacle marriage of chocolate and vanilla. Both the cocoa and vanilla are as profound as possible. And it's *just* cocoa and vanilla.

Forget notions of coffee, fruits, hazelnut, caramelly malts or bourbon... this tastes of the deepest of black, smokiest and super-fine chocolates and only pure vanilla pods; it does not mince words and it does not need to. Nothing is "suggested". It picked a flavour (or two) and underlined and emphasized them (and only them) to infinity.

Most importantly, they are remarkably genuine flavours; the ingredients that went into this beer were no doubt of the highest (and most expensive) quality. This is most evident in the beer's smokey, roasty characteristic which is singly that of artisan unadulterated chocolate. And it's so refreshing to find a beer with *this* much flavour that isn't over 7% alcohol.

I'd wager it's safe to assume this pairs well with a world of different desserts. I can say for a fact that it made an intrinsic match for the rocky road ice cream, marshmallow and brownie cookies I had it with, equally so for the berry sorbet I also got to sample alongside it. Part of me wonders if it would team just as well with a smokey set of ribs or grilled steak?

This is the kind of beer that leaves you starring at the bottom of your glass for days. For my money, Quebec is the best province when it comes to gourmet foods; cheeses, game meats, and yes, beers, anything artisanal is usually extra-artisanal when it comes from La Belle Province and this is no exception. Zut alors, I'm love sick already.

Second or third time having this one, just deleted my old review to redo this one 8 months later. Pours out pitch black with a very nice dark tan head. The head is pretty large and has great retention. The bubbles on top are very frothy and look very cool. Tons of lacing is left all around my snifter as the head dies down. It leaves behind a large cloud and ring around the sides of the beer. Smell is nice. I notice a lot more vanilla and cocoa this time around, and to my liking. The roasted malts are right behind these two aspects and make for a great nose. I would like a bit more roasted malt. The vanilla aspect of the aroma is outstanding. Taste is probably the best of any non-Imperial Stout I have had, and better than many Imperial Stouts. The malt, cocoa and vanilla combine amazingly to make for a dessert-like taste. There are some earthy hops and they help round out a flavor that is very close to perfection. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low-medium carbonation. There is no warming. The only problem here is the lack of creaminess, the body feels watery more than creamy. A coat of roasty cocoa and malt sticks around on the tongue. If some creaminess was added to this beer, it would probably be flawless IMO. Drinkability is a laugh, I should go to Montreal and bring back a few cases of this stuff! It would be cheaper than buying over priced singles in the US. I love dark beer and this one could be sessioned like there was no tomorrow. This is a near perfect example of a straight up Stout. Good Job DDC.

My bottle bore the Aphrodite name - no doubt due to some U.S. labeling restriction. Heaven forbid that someone might think they were buying liquid Viagra.

I was really impressed by this beer - perhaps the ideal dessert beer. Quite sweet with pronounced chocolate and vanilla flavors. Called to mind some vanilla porters I've had in the past, pumped up to stout stature. Creamy mouthfeel - almost a beershake.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured a flat black with a nutmeg colored, fizzy head that dissipated rather quickly. A thin band encircles the glass in an attempt at a lacing. Standard color issue and nice head coloring. A sturdier head display might of warranted a push but ends up better then average but short of good.

S: The nose had deep espresso beans with some dried creamer notes. Rich dark chocolate is also dominant along with ripe dark fruit (plums) that was moderate in strength.

T: The flavor had a deep roasty nature with a good deal of bitterness, but came off exceptionally smooth. Burnt chocolate and espresso beans along with dark fruit provides an incredibly rich flavor. Roasted grains and dried vanilla beans come through nicely on the closing fade and swallow while a wee bit of alcohol detection blends well adding flavor and spice to an already great experience.

M: The mouthful was light to medium with a silky smoothness. A beautiful roasty fade ensures on the swallow.

D: A dark stout loaded with a rich roasted malting makes for a great meal in a bottle and a wonderful drinking experience. Case worthy and always worthy to have on hand, I would have a hard time tiring of this but would certainly indulge in trying to.

Aphrodite label. two numbered sections 0 through 9, with "0" and 5" notched. not very helpful, as I have no idea what this means. batch #? poured into DFH sign. glass

A - opaque black. giant 3 inch tan head, thick and clumpy. crazy lacing throughout drinking

S - rich roasted coffee and bitter chocolate

T - roasty, vanilla. starts slightly sweet, finishes dry. subtle flavors are balanced well.

M - extremely creamy, mild carbonation

D - very tasty and easy to drink, so very high drinkability.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

341ml bottle, batch #9, whatever that means. No idea on date, only batch number on right side of the label.

Pours quite thick black with a large three-finger plus brown head, foamy and rocky, leaves a clumpy ring of lacing and retains a good cap that eventually reduces to a ring and wispy covering.

Aroma is rich dark chocolate, cocoa, and coffee, roasted malts, some vanilla. Powerful and wonderful smelling beer.

First sip is an OMG moment if you are a chocolate lover, wow. Massive amounts of premium dark chocolate, cocoa, some coffee, and to a lesser degree vanilla and roasted malts. Cocoa definitely overpowers the nose and flavor, but that's not a bad thing at all, not at all. Delicious.

Mouthfeel is rich, smooth, velvety, low carbonation, just about perfect. Is this an oatmeal stout? Sure feels like it...

This drinks so incredibly smoothly, tastes and smells so incredibly good, I want it to last forever but it's going down so very, very fast. It's a damned shame it's $5.50 a bottle as I'd buy this by the six on a regular basis. Drinkability takes a hit due to the high price.

Perhaps the best non-Imperial Stout I've ever had. No, this is definitely the best non-Imperial Stout I've ever had, by far.

Another phenomenal, world-class beer from Dieu du Ciel.

Cheers.

As far as I can figure from the notches on the side of the bottle, this is best by June of 2010. Consumed 4/1/2010.

A: Poured into a pint glass, moderately aggressively. Looks thick. Yield: a small milk-chocolate-brown head that settles quickly. Body is black.

S: Chocolate is definitely there. Also roasted malt. I get vanilla as it warms.

T: First impression is more about the feel -- specifically the carbonation, which is active and fine -- than the flavor. Chocolate is there -- up front it's more milk chocolately, but it finishes with a dark chocolate-like bitterness that keeps it from getting overly sweet. I don't sense any vanilla flavors. Some roasted barley, more as it warms than at first. Dark chocolate bitterness lingers and coats the palate.

M: Very fizzy, active carbonation. Gives the overall impression of being fairly light. Call it lighter side of medium.

D: Very good. Light in heft, flavorful. That dark chocolate bitterness that coats the palate slows you down a bit, however.

Overall impression: a good chocolate stout. Nowhere near the level of a ST Choklat; closer to Ommegang's Chocolate Indulgence in feel. Pricey, so I probably won't get it again, but glad that I had the chance to try it.

New to BC this stout really brings Sexy back in a beer. Looks like Peche Mortel from the outside but the nose is pure vanilla and chocolate with less coffee notes. Once this beer warms up it becomes rich and luscious in the mouthfeel with that vanilla really bringing it all together. Never cloying but always a treat for the palate. Great after dinner beer

Had on tap at The Avenue Pub in New Orleans on 3/22.

A. Dark brown to almost black in appearance with a nice tan head with good staying power.

S. Vanilla, chocolate and some bubble gum. Not the most complex smelling beer but for some reason I couldn't keep my nose out of this stuff. Very inviting aroma.

T. Vanilla and chocolate flavors that are on the rich side. Very easy drinking with no noticeable alcohol. Not your typical American Stout - lacks a hop bite common to many.

M. Creamy and smooth are two words that come to mind. I love the way this beer feels.

D. This is my first Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel beer and I am impressed. I only had one glass but could have easily drank another.

Thanks goes out to gford217 for this brew.

Aphrodite Label

Poured into a chalice a black color, some carbonation, not much of a head for a stout, no sticky lacing also. The nose is malty, with some cocoa, chocolate, toffee. The taste is very nice, malty, with lots of nice dark stuff, and some nice vanilla notes. Medium body. Very drinkable, this is a very tasty brew, wish there was a better head/lacing for just a Stout at 6.5% ABV.

This one is of the Aphrodite label.

Pours a pitch black with a dark brown head. Not much retention, but a little lace action going on.

Aroma- Chocolate, espresso and vanilla. Almost iced frappuccino-ish.

Taste- Same as it smells for the most part. Bottle says hops are evident, but I'm not picking up anything. Any of the bitterness I'm picking up is coming from the cocoa. Not as sweet as I expected with the vanilla bean in the ingredient list. Some roasted malt is there, but for the most part the cocoa and espresso dominate the beers flavor characteristics.

This is a nice beer. Perfect with a dessert. Vanilla gelato perhaps or even better with some cheesecake. Drinks very smooth. I'm diggin the mouthfeel here. Not the best stout I've ever had, but well above average.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a not-quite-pitch black with dark, blood red hues around the edges when held up to the light and streams of carbonation just barely visible. A frothy, beige head caps it off.

S: Sweet, dark chocolate is the dominant aroma and was evident as soon as the bottle was opened. Coming in behind it are notes of vanilla, coffee, some dark fruits - chocolate covered cherries come to mind - and a touch of caramel in tthe background. For a beer geek and lover of stouts, this aroma really is an aphrodisiac.

T: Not quite as robust as the aroma would indicate, but definitely not lacking on flavor. Chocolate isn't quite as strong as on the nose, backed by a good deal of vanilla, some coffee and dark fruits, and just a hint of bitterness.

M: Medium body with just above moderate carbonation. Could perhaps be a bit thicker, but that might just be my love of imperial stouts showing through. For a 6.5% ABV stout, it's very appropriate.

D: Drinks very easily, isn't a particularly high ABV, and the taste never gets too overpowering in any one direction - definitely one that could be enjoyed for an evening.

A - pours a dark black with a toffee head

S - cocoa flavors with hints of vanilla extract

T - taste follows the nose. starts off with some hot cocoa flavors (minus the hot) that mixes with some vanilla, then fades to darker chocolates. As this warms, the flavors meld together really nicely.

M - full bodied with good carbonation. Really nice mouthfeel.

D - this is a pretty solid stout. I usually have had any too much success with cocoa flavored stouts, but this took the coca and blended it nicely with the vanilla and chocolate flavors.

Fair chocolate stout, outstanding on the aroma but not so much elsewhere.

Presentation: 11.5 oz brown screw top bottle. Dieu Du Ciel window framing design with the illustration of a female character looking at the viewer adorned with vanilla, cocoa and barley. Side narrative describes the brew, noting main ingredients and intent. It has an irregularly notched and not very clear date on the side (0 and 5 or 6). Notes Alc. by Vol. (6.5%) Served on a snifter.

A - Black pour with a short brown head, medium retention and minimal lacing.

S - Very rich chocolate nose with vanilla notes, and some roasted malt hints.

T - Taste follows the nose but rather literally... It sits behind it with a subdued coffee sense, rich on the flavor itself but with a rather low key sense, vanilla emerges here an there to punctuate it. Lightly sweet, with a bitter and tiny hop touch to balance it.

M - Medium mouthfeel, which unfortunately feels a bit too thin during most the drink, leading to a smooth if a bit watery finish. Medium carbonation,

D - It´s fair, feels a bit short as a sipper. Even short as a dessert brew other than for the smell. It can be had far more informally than what it seems to suggest.

Notes: Hmmm, I´m glad to keep on having the chance to try beers from Dieu Du Ciel for the first time. Having said that, this is so far probably one of least interesting I´ve had. The smell promises quite a bit and almost one can praise it for holding the brew on its own. But the flavor and the range it offers afterwards feel short not only of the expectations but of the overall drinking experience.

After enjoying the rich coffee infused flavor of Peche Mortel, I wanted to see what else Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel was capable of. Aphrodite really pulled me in with the promise of vanilla bean infusion on the label but proved to be a disappointment.

Appearance was that of a stout with a quickly dissipating head. Was there for a half a minute, then gone like a dark cola.

This smells like stale coffee.

The taste is boring a lifeless. Where is the vanilla?

Prickly mouthfeel like a cola. Not appropriate for a stout.

Drinkability is meh. I could drink more but I don't want to.

There are far better stouts. At around $5 a bottle this seems like it is riding on the coat tails of Peche Mortel and living off of its success. Will not buy again and recommend steering clear.

Pours a very dark brown color, near black, with a small and frothy brown head that settled into a light ring. The aroma is of brownie batter and bakers chocolate, vanilla and nuts. Very yummie aroma. Big powdered cocoa flavors up front followed by a cream soda vanilla flavor and finishes with a bitter chocolate blast. There is some light coffee ground flavor as well. Well bodied with tingly carbonation; finishes with a roasty bitterness. Perhaps a touch too bitter. This is a very tasty beverage. I really dig the cocoa and vanilla in the beginning and it is not cloying Fairly low ABV makes enjoying a few of these possible.

11.5 oz bottle

A: Dark black with a very small brown head. Little retention and little lace.

S: Roasted malt, chocolate, some vanilla. Pretty much what the bottle advertised.

T: Roasted malt, chocolate, bit of creamy sweetness, vanilla, very low bitterness. Again, as advertised and very good.

M/D: Full bodied, creamy, slight high carbonation does become a bit prickly. Good drinkability. Probably not a knock you off your feet stout, but very well put together.

A very good beer indeed. Let it warm and keep smelling it -- the aromas develop wonderfully...

In the glass, it is very dark, black, can't see anything through it. The thin head was brownish.

At first, the nose was mild, almost non-existent with just a touch of sweet chocolate. As it warmed, even just a bit, vanillas started to come out, then darker chocolates, then eventually it smelled like a fine vanilla brandy. Great stuff!

The flavor is big from the start. Chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and a long-lasting bitterness that some might find a bit much, but seemed spot on and balanced to me.

The moutfeel is a good effervescence coming out first, then the thickness in an interesting tumbling of feels on the tongue.

Drinkability is very good -- in the right place/time. But I doubt someone will sit down and drink three of these at once -- it's so rich and unctuous. Definitely a great beer to try.

Pours a dark brown color with lighter brown and red highlights around the edges when held up to the light. Fairly aggressive pour yields more than a finger of fluffy tan head that receeds leaving quite a solid curtain of lace on the glass. Aroma is full of sweet smelling chocolate and burnt grain character with a bit of the vanilla coming through in the backend. Taste is quite full of bittersweet chocolate upfront with a solid burnt grain taste filling out the rest of the body. Finish has a lasting taste of bitter chocolate blended with vanilla. The dark grain flavors are really accented nicely with the addition of the cocoa and vanilla without those additions overpowering the base characteristics of the stout. Feel is medium to light with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall it is a solid beer that I would have again. Nicely done.

11.5 ounce bottle poured into a wine glass. Poured right down the middle of the wine glass and produced a glass with a small tan ring of head with little staying power. The beer appears black, and completly opaque in the glass, no light passes through when heald to a candle. Nice look for a stout. Smells pretty mouch like a mexican mole, or cocoa nibs which I guess is good given the ingrediants. Chocolate really overwhelms all other aromas however. Cocoa is the overwhelming flavor on the palate, not to be confused with chocolate. The cocoa is earthy, rich, and slightly bitter. I do find it hard to taste the vanilla in all of this. Clean finish and aftertaste. Rich thick and heavy on the tongue. Drinkable but I wounldn't want to find myself 4 beers deep in this style. Been looking for this one for a while and glad to have had it, really glad.

Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with a tan head. It smells quite sweet with mild coffee and vanilla. The taste is of roasted malt with the coffee/vanilla flavour. If I didn't know before that it wasn't an imperial stout, I would have thought it was because the flavour is huge in this. It is so creamy it was almost like it was poured from a nito-tap, even though I had poured it from a bottle. It is very smooth.

Reviewed from notes

Pours black with a nice two finger brown head. The aroma is a nice blend of chocolate and vanilla with some floral/waxy hoppiness underneath. A tad woody and toasty, but I believe that is just how the chocolate notes are projecting themselves.

The flavor is like fried ice cream...a nice toasty maltiness and vanilla make for a nice treat. I have had this once before and thought it tasted like a vanilla beer milkshake, but with a few months on this bottle the vanilla has faded a tad and rounded out the flavor profile nicely.

The body is medium and carbonation is on point for the style. Overall this is a very nice stout, and one of the best ones I can think of that is under 7% ABV.

my first from this acclaimed brewery, and i was not disappointed.
A: black with a lasting brown head and really nice lacing throughout.
S: chocolate/cocoa dominates, not a super dark roasty bitter cocoa smell, more like a candy bar chocolate. coffee as well, with some hints of molasses and dark red stone fruit underneath.
T: medium sweet chocolatey malts, very smooth, light roastiness and smooth bitterness balancing it to a semi-dry finish. vanilla shows itself on the lingering finish.
M: nicely carbonated (in my case, a good amount), frothy. medium-bodied. some dessert-like chewiness. really nice.
D: tons of flavor with nothing too big or over the top for this abv. not too viscous which helped this go down way too quickly. could have finished a bomber of this with no problem.

Had on tap at ChurchKey in DC today, 3/10/10.

a - Pours a dark brown with about 2 fingers of tan head. Excellent retention.

s - Smells strongly of cocoa chocolate. Also smells of vanilla, roasted malts, and a little bit of coffee.

t - The first taste to jump out is chocolate once again. It's a little bitter, but not too bitter. Also tastes of vanilla and roasted malts.

m - Very smooth and creamy. No carbonation and light to medium body. Extremely easy to drink and very light for a stout.

d - Overall I really enjoyed this stout. Big chocolate and vanilla smell and taste and the combo is perfect in this beer. The 6.5% ABV helps make it smooth and creamy; it is very easy to drink. I would definitely have this again and will be looking to get some more.

okay, let's put the name and bottle label aside for a second and just say plainly that this is a seductive beer. Poured into a snifter with a strong slow pour, yielding a mountain of frothy tight tan head over a dark murky body. Bubbles subside to a rocky mass with nice clinging sticky patches of lace.

Nose is a bit like cocoa puffs, and I mean no disrespect here. True cocoa in aroma with a faint marshmallow sweetness underpinned by round even vanilla and a subtle hidden malty background. Add in the complexity of sweet tobacco and old leather, and you get this interesting beer.

The taste of this beer takes all those aromas and blends them into an altogether unique display of flavor. Honestly nothing overly gimmicky here, but rather, a very nice display of vanilla and cocoa rolled around each other. Malt backbone gives support and body to the blend, but really hangs on highlighted subtle vanilla and a nicely done chocolate taste. Finishes with a puff of sweet round pipe tobacco and some deeper grains (creating the perfect balance of not-too-sweet and a little dark), then fades into more common stout flavor and lingering vanilla. Delicate yet fortified.

Feel is subtle enough it's almost not notable, in that it supports the beer with it's medium-full body and soft carbonation so as not to interfere with flavor or sipping at all. It seems exactly what it needs to be to lend to the overall experience of the beer. A little clingy in the finish, drawing out the flavors packed in.

I didn't expect nearly this much from an unassuming stout of 6.5%abv. I realize that vanilla is a strong flavor, and dessert beers aren't always preferred on the palates of those who love craft beer, but this one stands out to me with a remarkable unique character that makes it worth seeking out if you enjoy the flavors of vanilla and chocolate in an extremely well balanced beer. Great for sipping without the intense alcohol of so many other 'big' beers. Drinks well, but I'll admit that even at 6.5%, 11.5oz is more than enough.
