Tonight I’m nearly back to full capacity; the week-long cold is winding down. I’m SO glad it’s Friday. Goodbye long crappy week. I’m doing some pre-gaming tonight (Bruins game is on later) with a birthday gift I’m finally getting around to drinking. Many thanks to whoever got me this.
Dieu du Ciel Aphrodite is a bad-ass sounding beer. Brewed with real cacao and vanilla beans…YES PLEASE!
Roasted malt aroma, but the flavor has so much more in store. Chocolatey? Yup. Vanilla-ey? Yup! Roasted boldness? Yup! Although it’s only 6.5% ABV, I’m picking up the alcohol flavor too.
Long, long bitter aftertaste.
My only complaint – a bit too much on the brutal roasted bitterness side. Otherwise, a darkly delicious beverage.
