COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
NOTE: Pilot batches of this were available prior to release with varying levels of chocolate, including on cask at Cask Days as Mark Henry Sexual Chocolate, which was a blend of a pilot batch and the production batch.

If I had 2 million Ecuadorian Cocoa Nibs... I would brew you an Imperial Chocolate Stout. Brewing with BNL demanded a rare treat -organic Ecuadorian Cocoa nibs -to create a rich, friendly Imperial Chocolate Stout as sweet and quirky as the bandís music. We lovingly aged this beer on a bed of luscious raw cocoa nibs creating a black velvety brew so fudge-y it makes you want to lick the inside of your glass. Opaque as chocolate cake, this roasty brew pours topped with a whipped mocha froth. The creamy dark cocoa flavours gently warm with a steady 10%ABV. No bitterness to this stout, just a chocolate boldness that, like a happy memory or a perfect song, keeps on giving. And like great music, this bottle is meant to be shared with special friends and family.

Bottle shared by Skyview at RBSG. Pours dark, boozy and incredible chocolate. Chocolate aroma, taste and smooth, creamy and awesome. Tasted kind of like hershey syrup.

Pours inky dark brown with a big dark brown head. Aroma is like sticking your head in a chocolatier factory. Intense dark chocolate overpowers everything. Taste is like the aroma, bitter dark chocolate, loads of it. Backed with alcohol heat and dark malts. Big and not for the faint of heart or those with diabetes.

Bomber. Deep brown pour with a beige head. Tons of bakers chocolate in this. Sweet and slightly roasty.

Bottle around the campsite at BCTC. Pours a deep murky looking brown with a thin beige tan head. Smells like Bosco. Fitting for a BCTC that was Seinfeld themed. Big fat chocolate. Loads of sweet chocolate with some sweet roast. Chewy roast and more chocolate. Interesting and definitely tasty, but much like Southern Tierís Choklat I really couldnít envision myself drinking more than a couple ounces. Also, this stuff took forever to wash the scent of out of our glasses for the next beer.

Metalchopz (2235) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
Single in a box at the LCBO, with 10% ABV. Pours a real dark brown with very little highlights. Big chocolate pudding aroma with the cacao powder, hints of plum pudding and nuts. Medium-full bodied with a smooth oily and creamy mouthfeel. Starts on a sharp note with the roasted malts and mild bitter hops, to then go into the chocolate cake, molasses and finish on a slight dry hoppy lingering end. Amazingly not too sweet and not too heavy. What an awesome dessert beer (which it was not limited).

Bottle share. Pure blackness. Vanilla, chocolate, raisin, silk, unicorn foreskin, angel-dressed midget tears, and animal crackers. Tastes like cocoa, lactose, biscuit, cream. The best cream. I love cream. This cream is really good. Some of the best.

Solid black with a good chocolate head. Aroma is chocolate sauce, marshmallow, cocoa, vanilla. Syrupy mouthfeel, full bodied, sweet on the palate with a hint if booze on the finish. Taste is chocolate, marshmallow, cocoa, hints of wood and mocha. So chocolatety.

Pours black with chocolate milk head. You can smell this from a mile away. Itís all chocolate. Amazing. Smells like brownies, chocolate milk and vanilla. Tastes like chocolate milk, brownies soaked in booze, and all things good. If you enjoy a nice chocolate-based imperial stout...this is the ticket. Sweet chocolate with just enough roasted malt and boozy bitterness to make this one of the best chocolate based beers Iíve ever had.

I found this beer to be much better than the band. Much more in the chocolate milk vein than bittersweet or dark chocolate, though still not too terribly sweet.
