4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque, very dark brown, with just a sliver of ruby glint around the very bottom edge of the glass. A large light mocha head retains well. Coffee, cola, metallic, and cherry on the nose. Mouthfeel is not too thin, not too thick. A bit creamy. A bit of a carbonation burn, just for balance. Nearly perfect for this style. Chocolate at the beginning. A bit of plastic in the middle. Powerful coffee emerges at and lingers after the finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap. Pours black with a thin light tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, light roast, bitter chocolate, lactose. Flavor of dark fruits, raisin, chocolate, lactose. Aftertaste is a bit off- bad milk and sweetness. Not an imperial stout Iím too fond of, although it isnít completely awful.

Itís like drinking chocolate milk thatís somehow more dark chocolate than milk chocolate. A tad more bitterness would make this amazing.

500ml bottle from Coop. 9%. Beautiful dark brown pour with a fairly foamy tan head with mild lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Taste is oaty and thick, almost sludgy on the mouth feel, but layered with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Medium alcohol warmth. Superb.

Enjoyed from bottle at Thirsty & Miserable in Toronto, ON. Appearance is pitch black moderate consistency, thin tan head. Aroma of rich chocolate, lactose, vanilla, smells sweet and decadent. Taste is sweet, rich, decadent, and great. Lightly abrasive with rich chocolate notes. Awesome stuff. Enjoyed then had some lemon meringue pie from some French strangers.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt with some lactose notes thrown in. The flavor is similar with the sweet chocolate, lactose and roasted malt. Very sweet overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Chocolate and Coffee flavours mask the high ABV, making this a dangerously drinkable beer.
