A strong stout (6.5%) brewed with cocoa and vanilla, Aphrodite is an alias of Aphrodisiaque, a beer that has been available on an occasional basis over the last six years at the original DDC! brewpub in Montreal. Aphrodisiaque is currently ranked #50 in the best beers in the world according to RateBeer.
According to DDC! president Stéphane Ostiguy, the bottled version goes into production in April, with Quebec being the initial market. US label approval was sought by the brewery’s American importer, Shelton Brothers, in hope that there will be sufficient quantities to be shipped south of the border later this year.
