From Montreal Quebec’s Brasserie Dieu Du Ciel comes their “Aphrodisiaque” a strong stout. The stout pours a deep opaque black with a brown head that dissipates quickly. The aroma consists of smoke, roasted malts, chocolate and molasses. The flavour is of tones of smoke, roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, molasses and hops bitterness. This stout is a bit more smokey that I would usually go for but it worked really well. The alcohol content comes in at 6.5%.
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.
