4.8/5  rDev +14%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A - This beer poured a deep, rich black color that produced a creamy chocolate brown head that had a moderate amount of retention and laced the side of the glass nicely

S - The aromas produced by this beer were roasted malts, mocha espresso, vanilla bean, and hot coco

T - The taste of this beer was a score, deep roasted maltiness plays with the mocha espresso and hot coco taste, and to contrast it is the great vanilla bean that cuts through and finishes the beer off nicely

M - The mouthfeel of this beer had a medium body with a light amount of carbonation, very creamy

D - The drinkability of this beer is, as you can see from my review, was great, as regular Stouts go, this was clearly my favorite

4.88/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Pours a pitch black color with a frothy mocha head that dribbles spotty lacing around the glass

Smell: Smells like a mocha milk shake - milk chocolate, coffee and vanilla

Taste: Milk chocolate, up front, with a developing vanilla and subtle fruit aspect; by mid-palate, the mocha flavor commands the profile and, after the swallow, it is pure milk shake with just a little bit of fruity ale flavors underneath (as the beer matures, however, the fruity elements build and become a bigger factor in the flavor profile)

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, with a silky character; low to moderate carbonation

Drinkability: Amazing that so much flavor was packed into a beer with a relatively low ABV; much better than many RISs that are shooting for the same flavor profile

12oz bottle labeled "Aphrodite" via trade thanks to jlindros, shared at a BA tasting.

A - Pours black with a medium-sized creamy tan head that leaves nice lacing.

S - Chocolate and lots of vanilla with mild roast.

T - Loads of vanilla, high-quality milk chocolate, caramel, toffee, and some roasted malt. A little bit sweet (which I like of course). There really is a lot of vanilla in this beer. It's heavier on that flavor than almost any other I've had.

M - Palate is creamy and smooth with medium body.

D - Pretty high for a stout. This is a really nice beer overall.

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

Poured this beer into a tulip glass. The color is a deep dark brown, with a light colored chocolate head. Nice and foamy.

The aroma is a combination of well roasted malts and cocoa. Swirling the glass reveals some of the vanilla notes, which almost take on a woody vanilla smell. Really liking this. Not overly complex, but quite enjoyable.

The flavor is again, toasted malts and a rich cocoa presence. The vanilla is apparent as well and helps smooth out some of the bitterness from the slightly burnt malts. The balance between sweet and bitter is very well done and makes this a highly drinkable stout.

The mouthfeel is full, almost silky. After drinking lot of imperial stouts and russian imperials, many regular stouts seem almost watery to me, but not this one. For a regular stout, this has a very good body. Like I said earlier, the beer is very drinkable. I could put this down all night.

All in all, I would definitely pick this beer up again and would love to try it on tap. I think a trip to Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel is in order, especially since they make the delicious Peche Mortel as well.

Poured into a snifter to reveal velvety black body with thick and creamy hazelnut head. Smells like vanilla bean coffee-spiked hot chocolate, which is to say excellent and I only wish it could be more strong.
Tastes smooth, creamy and with a heavy roasted malt presence. Just sweet enough to be drinkable. Nice punch of bitterness. it's tough to pick out the vanilla over all the strong roasted flavors, but I do get some of the chocolate. Creamy texture... this is one of the first beers I've tried that I can say has a little chewiness to it. Carbonation is pointed and fine but not needle-like, adding volume to the otherwise heavy body. The alcohol warmth compliments the flavors nicely and make it sip-friendly (though admittedly I can drink this RIS-like style with ease). It sweetens as it warms and more of the creaminess comes through.
Overall a solid stout offering. I would drink it again... and again.

341ml bottle poured into 400ml dab glass on sept21 2009

A I held it up too the sun and shes black as night. It poured half a glass of mocha colored head with good retention and decent lace. As the head fell it left a 1/4inch of dense film that didn't coat the glass but left thicker lace as the glass emptied.

S As the box says vanilla and chocolate are well represented but I also smell some faint booze and coffee

T Again vanilla and chocolate mix well with each other, the booze I smell is well concealed and the mild coffee is still there. This tastes as it smells and that's a good thing.

M Not as thick as I expected but fairly creamy nonetheless

D Zero problems drinking this one, it's worth seeking out

I was pleased when this one showed up in Alberta, putting it on my got list felt good, but not as good as taking it of my want list. This beer is wonderful and you should pick it up if you get the chance.

Bottle shared by nickd717. Been wanting to try this one for a while.

Pours dark but clear brown, almost opaque in the glass. The small tan head disappeared pretty quickly, settling to a thin disc.

The aroma has a massive vanilla and chocolate presence, almost to the point of having no identifiable beer character. It's nicely done, though quite rich.

The taste is sweet up front, with big vanilla and chocolate flavors complementing the roasty, rich malt backbone. There's a fair amount of bitterness to contrast the vanilla and chocolate, but this is still pretty decadent and dessert-like. The body felt a touch thin to me, medium-light, but that may be because I was drinking bigger stouts before this. Quite good.

Generously shared by nickd717 at a tasting last night. Thanks Nick!

A: Pours an impenetrable brown body that darkens to black in the center of the glass. Develops a finger of tan-colored head that recedes quickly into a light donut / film on top of the brew. With so many people sharing from the same glass (mmm disease!), there is no place for the suds to latch on... But even on the first swig, there wasn't much lacing anyway.

S: Lots of vanilla, but not so strong that it blasts the nose and becomes a beer parody. It's subdued, and blends into the rest of the mellow nose with cocoa, roasted malt, and nuts.

T: Again, I taste the vanilla very strongly, but the roasted malts are much stronger in the flavor than cocoa. There is a strange artificial sweetness to the beer that becomes especially obvious near the finish. Slight smoke on the exhalation.

M: Medium-full body, with low carbonation that makes it very velvety and smooth. Finishes malty / sweet, obviously.

D: I thought this was pretty decent. This beer isn't available around here, but if I saw it I might pick up another bottle.

A:Pours black, almost opaquewith a thin beige head. Some nice lacing, yet only a thin film remains on the surface.

S: Some roasty notes linger behind a wall of chocolae and vanilla. Smells like one of those home made malted milkshakes.

T: Nice, dry and roasy flavors hang out up front, with some coffee notes. Then comes the flavors of bittersweet cocoa and vanilla. It finishes slightly dry with a nice hop character.

M: This is a more medium bodied stout, a bit thinner than I expected it to be.

D: This brewery has yet to dissapoint me. Very smooth and drinkable, this is another unique offering from these guys.

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

A: Dark brown with a beige small head that leaves a nice lid of lacings.

S: Very mellow and round, yet characterful. Lots of chocolate and vanilla. Pleasant malts beneath. Not very complex, but the vanilla and chocolate combination is very pleasant.

T: The taste is on the sweet side with a foundation of mild roasted maltiness and huge amounts of vanilla and chocolate/cocoa/chocolate powder. The sweet flavors of vanilla and cocoa are very prominent and dominate the taste completely. It's almost reminiscent of a tasty milkshake. Just a hint of dark fruits and perhaps a hint of smoke as well. The finish is very mildly bitter with notes of nuts and chocolate. Unfortunately, I think the finish is a bit short.

M: Medium body with a creamy texture. Slightly too active carbonation.

D: A good one. Very smooth and round. It's sweet, but not overly so and the somewhat one-sided character works really well due to the well crafted composition.

Well, I haven't heard why this needs to be called Aphrodite in the States (or at least our quirky little Commonwealth), but whatever. It's going in my Portsmouth snifter. Very faint carbonation pffft of the cap.

Well, it looks nice enough. Decent maple/brown sugar head. Maybe a little thin but in this snifter that's usually the case. Hang time isn't all that but the deep espress color keeps it formidable and there's a little bit of lacing. Not bad.

I enjoy the deep dark cocal tendency along with a natural vanilla bean essence...along with some grassy hops (Target?) and deep roasted malty goodness. Only a faint hint of patent tannins adds to some nice austerity. Impressive.

Y'know, the carbonation and saltiness really combine with the tannins to add a bit of sting to this that's not on the nose at first. Very slatelike, dry and austere. If it didn't drink so damn easily I'd sit around and wait for it to warm up even more...but I'm already getting this to open up a little bit. It's quite good; the saltiness and tannins go away, leaving a true dark malt character with a little bit of chocolate and maybe a faint hint of vanilla...but not that oaky vanilla you get with barrel-aged stuff. Hops definitely grass this up and add to the slatiness.

Palate feel is, again, nice and dry. Spritely carbonation meets deep, dark tannins and robust hop grass and slate to generate a very clean feel. Whatever yeast strain they used cleared just about everything out.

Borderline sessionable, this is. Drinks way, WAY too easily. Very well-constructed. I know it's not a coffee stout, but this is definitely Peche Mortel's little sister that's all grown up.

11.5oz. bottle served in my DT tulip. '0' '06' notched on the label. Poured inky black with a half-inch, dense khaki-colored cap that eventually settled into a fairly consistent skim with only a few breaks. Thick slashes of lacing were exposed after each tilt of the glass. Cocoa revealed upfront, as well as a hint of dark fruit and the merest suggestion of hops at the back. Big cocoa character dominates the flavor profile, with a kiss of vaniila in the mix and a little bit of bittering hops at the finish. Mouthfeel was medium/light and a bit fizzy; would have preferred a little less carbonation on this one. Really drinkable, despite the carbonation level. Proof that a beer can be flavorful with a low abv; however, $5.99 a bottle is a bit steep in my opinion.

Drank from a 341 mL bottle
Served in a pint glass

The beer poured an absolute pitch black with a tight, frothy, near three-finger, mocha-colored head that faded to a flimsy film. A thick blanket of lacing coated the glass, eventually giving way to cascading streaks.

The aroma was outstanding. Super smooth and sweet with strong notes of coffee, vanilla and a touch of caramel. Powdered cocoa came through as well. As the beer warmed, the vanilla really intensified. Very dessert-like and quite impressive (especially for a beer of this magnitude).

The taste however did not stack up to my expectations. Roasted malts dominated. Burnt coffee, char and ash came through strong. Some cocoa powder was also discernible. The finish was pithy, dry and bitter with a distinct mineral-like aspect. Overall, the flavor profile was quite simplistic.

The mouthfeel was thinner than average for the style with a crisp, bubbly carbonation that mellowed as the beer sat.

Considering the ABV, drinkability was good.

This beer was somewhat of a disappointment. While both the appearance and the aroma were nearly flawless, the flavor and mouthfeel reminded me more of a mediocre Irish dry stout than a well crafted American-style stout.

Opaque with a very nice mocha head. Little lacing, head recedes to a thin ring around the stout. Smell is great; roasted malts, vanilla, cocoa. Met my expectations perfectly. Taste is the same, very well balanced between the flavors and finishes with a roastyness that is desirable. The mouthfeel to me is a bit of a let down. Kind of watery with an bit to much attack from the carbonation. This is definitely one of the better stouts I've had as of late. Dieu Du Ciel continues to impress.

Picked up a bottle at Julio's on my way south through MA. The bottle is labeled 'Aphrodite' but my understanding is that it is the same beer, just with a modified, US-friendly label.

Poured into a Sam Adams glass. Big, frothy head with awesome retention and some lacing. Color is basically jet-black. Aroma is big on the chocolate, like a semisweet baking chocolate. Roasted malt. I can't really pick out the vanilla, but it might be adding to the rounded, sweet chocolate aroma.Taste is also big on the chocolate, reminiscent of Rogue chocolate stout. No harsh or acrid flavors. A bit of bitterness is present on the finish, and finishes pretty dry. Mouthfeel is pretty full, just about right for the style. Could be a bit fuller maybe. Drinkability is excellent, being pretty dry and super smooth.

Everything in this beer really harmonizes to emphasize the chocolate, but it's subtle enough to not seem gimicky. Overall this is an exceptional beer, highly drinkable, and definitely worth seeking out.

Poured into oversized DFH snifter

A: Pitch black color with dark brown almost black head of about 1 finger that fades semi quickly

N: Lots of oatmeal and dark roasted malts and tons of chocolate, a touch of oak and vanilla and some coffee

T: Wow! Starts with lots roasted malts and coffee, some chocolate, touch of oak and vanilla, creamy and rich, some rich dark fruits hit towards the end with a bitterness, theres so much going on, very slight alcohol, its very smooth

M: Thick and creamy with perfect carbonation, coats the whole mouth

F: It finishes slightly sweet that dries very quickly and leaves a slight chocolate and coffee bitterness on the tongue, makes me think of a chocolate milk with some coffee in it

Final thoughts: This is a very rich and complex beer with lots of roasted malts and coffee, chocolate, oak and vanilla, as well as some deep rich fruit that surprises you, very light alcohol taste and makes my mouth water quite a bit. I think this will age very well also. All the flavors are blended pretty well and I think aging it will just round it off even more. I'll have to cellar a few of them.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of dkchuar for my review #900 - many thanks, Dan! Split at a tasting w/ Bankhead, dkachur, and proteus93. Poured in to a tasting glass.

Appearance: Pours a thick, sticky-looking brown body, deep and robust, and capped by a decent one-finger head, a nice pleasant robust tan, with average retention. The carbonation in this may be present ... or, hell, it may be not. I'd have liked to get a full pour on this one, as I imagine it would have been even more fantastic w/ regard to the head aspects and the lacing. 4.0.

Aroma: Incredibly pungent, with tons of cocoa and deep, toasted malts, not burnt or astringent, but very robust. The cocoa is largely bittersweet, though, with plenty of slightly milky notes. The dominant note, however, is unmitigated, unrelenting vanilla, sweet and milky, but there are plenty of counterbalancing dry notes, as well - toasty, slightly crisp, reminiscent of dark toffee in places. This one is moderately complex but, otherwise just truly, amazingly pleasant. A few other stout-y notes - caramel, dark toffee, molasses, faint smoke, powdered Belgian chocolate, faint coffee - round this one out.

Taste: Sweet vanilla sugar - milky vanilla sugar, in fact, surprise! - largely characterize this one. Other than that, it's a solid stout, but when the two are put together, it's quite an enjoyable one-two punch. The vanilla sugar - which, if you've ever made it, is a really simple yet versatile addition to anything from creme brulee to your morning coffee - adds a wonderful complexity to a beer otherwise characterized by a solid array of dry toast, dark, bittersweet cocoa, and deep brown sugar.

Mouthfeel: A smooth, moderately thick beer with a fair amount of smooth, well-integrated carbonation.

Drinkability: A fantastic #900, and a real rare treat from Dieu du Ciel. I hope this one gets label approval in the U.S. soon, because at 6.5%, it's a perfect example of an attractive, good-drinking American stout with a twist that elevates it a step if not a few steps above the rest. One I would encourage anyone who gets the opportunity to try. Now, if only we could brew Peche Mortel with vanilla sugar ...

A: When it comes to stout, there's not a whole lot to watch for, and it can make me feel a little more critical on some. Black as they come, but there is a good light brown head that maintains itself to the end of the glass.

S: A big, roasted malt scent, with a wonderfully full - though it comes through with an attitude like it is a tease - vanilla. Chocolate scents are there, with more of a milky scent - minus the lactic qualities adding a 'sour' touch.

T + M: Smooth in body, with a little shimmer of carbonation. A dark roast coffee is far more apparent in the flavour, where I don't quite pick it up in the scent. The wood flavours are there, but again, there is a modesty to it that are easy to appreciate. The finish continues to be creamy and easy going.

D: An easy going stout, as far as they go. It has the flavours of anything "imperial," without the big booziness and heat that often go with them. Nicely done!

Pours very dark, nearly totally black with just the barest hints of ruby peeking from the corners of my glass. Head is a quite dark tan with decent retention but no lacing. Smell is very nice, quite sweet with obvious chocolate coming on strong. Vanilla hints get stronger as the beer warms. Taste sees much of the vanilla fall away in favour of the aforementioned dark chocolate. Lightly hopped as well. Mouthfeel is full and nicely carbonated, very nice, and drinkability is good. All in all, not as sweet as I'd have thought before breaking in to it, but probably better balanced. Very good stout.

12oz bottle courtesy of MrRetardedMonkey poured into a tulip.

Pours very dark out of the glass and sits black in the glass with no light coming through. There's a small tan head that fed by a stream of bubbles that I can see flowing up the side of the glass.

Man, this stuff smells great. Very sweet with vanilla and chocolate coming through aggressively, especially the vanilla. There is a dark roasted malt presence that balances the sweetness perfectly.

The flavor is much less sweet up front with a strong bitter chocolate blast up front with some burnt malts in the background. The vanilla is less prevalent overall but does come up in the finish which offsets the bitterness from the chocolate.

The mouthfeel is excellent and pretty full bodied for a non-impy stout. Soft carbonation and almost chalky/powdery from the semi-sweet chocolate...if that makes sense.

Another very solid stout from DDC though maybe a step below Peche Mortel (though I am partial to coffee). The use of the vanilla is much more evident in the aroma, which is where this beer shines for me.

Nice rich pour, deep brown/black color with a dense tan head.

You can smell the vanilla right out of the blocks.

The taste was primary a sweet chocolate stout with a pronounced vanilla flavor.

The mouth feel was rich and creamy and drier that I was expecting.

All that said the beer was very drinkable, although I don't know how many I can drink.

Received this in the Gentlemen's Club BIF. Thanks again Eric! Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.

A- Pours a dark, chocolate brown. Produced two fingers width off-white head. Reduced to a thin ring upon consumption.

S- Getting a subtle aroma of vanilla along with cocoa. Also a slight roasted malt characteristic is detectable in the background.

T- Upfront a distinct, yet mellow vanilla flavor comes through. This flavor slowly develops and gives the beer a semi-sweet finish. Just like the aroma, cocoa and slightly roasted malts are noticed in the back end. Also a light bitterness in the finish. Vanilla is the main player here, but not overdone in any way.

M- Medium bodied with good amount of carbonation. Leaves a semi-dry mouthfeel on the palate.

D- Pretty drinkable. Alcohol is not a factor whatsoever. The only negative I have is at some points the palate really dried out.

Overall, a bit different than what I expected. While all the flavors were there, they were all controlled. Wish there was a little more intensity in the flavors, but still a decent beer.

Bottle from a 6 pack courtesy of my girlfriend. A deep motor oil pour with a gorgeous billowing froth of mocha head. Excellent lace. Nose is a blast of vanilla and dark chocolate, with roast malts and cocoa nibs. The flavour is great. Lots of dark chocolate with an upfront vanilla profile that really works well with the chocolate aspect. A bit of coffee with roasted malts and some cafe mocha. Creamy and very drinkable. Medium body is missing a little something mid palate, but only a minor detraction to this wonderful stout. Thankfully we have 5 more.

First beer I am submitting multiple reviews for different serving types because this is just so different on tap. Arrives a jet black with a finger plus of a light cappuccino cream head on top.

Nose is all sweet vanilla with some lighter milk chocolate and a faint roasty quality.

The problem with the bottle is rectified - the body is so smooth and full it's amazing. Sweet vanilla melds with creamy chocolate, some roasty malts and just a faint hop presence to form a delectable dessert creation. Sweet but not overly so.

So dead on it's dangerous. I had to have a second glass.
