Dieu du Ciel Aphrodisiaque

Well back from an all too brief tour of Europe and the Portland I finally have another domestic beer review, unlike all the cool kids (bloggers) with their American Beer Thirst Swag (Mike, Beer Rater). Just kidding I’m entirely jealous of their swag and big fans of their respective blogs. That said lets get National within a Nation with some delicious Quebecois Beer.

Aphrodisiaque is a beer with a very difficult name to spell, its more beer-ish characteristics include a 6.5% ABV, an extremely opaque black colour that is some how more opaque than usual (like a blackhole, nothing gets through… except Matthew Mcconaughey in interstellar), and chocolate mouse coloured head. Smelling the beer I find a clear cocoa scent that is more reminiscent of fine swiss chocolate than walmart brand… but thats not surprising. Finally when first sipping I was greeted with full rich roasted malt flavour that fades just slightly before revealing a cocoa flavour which itself fades just slightly revealing a vanilla flavour (the beer is brewed with Cocoa and Vanilla) before the both recede and a delicious burnt malt and dark cocoa flavour lingers… simply sublime This is a top of the heap cocoa stout and as such it should go without saying…

    Just to help you feel better this beer was probably better than the samples you speak of.
