4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, LCBO - a pretty darn cool looking one too - I have no problem with the price given the unique collaboration and the collectable nature of the product. And I have always been a fan of the band, so this is one I have been looking forward to. Black pour, chocolatey head, looks great. Incredibly strong aroma as soon as you crack the bottle - in the glass it is just gushing with lots and lots of cocoa - smells like the best dark chocolate you have ever had. Taste is super rich as well - first the roast hits you followed by the cocoa and then the alcohol slowly warms your ears - this is a huge beer. I could see how some age would do wonders to this, as it is incredibly bold right now and could use the edges smoothed out a bit. But I love me a dessert beer and this is a classic one. This made for the perfect celebratory treat for my wife and I to split as we just sold our house today :). Cheers Monkeys and BNL.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle. Black in colour with a large long lasting beige head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of chocolate, some roast, chocolate, some vanilla and more chocolate. The flavour is sweet first with lots of chocolate, powdered chocolate, some alcohol. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, lots of chocolate and sweet. Exactly as it says it will be. So much chocolate. Surprised by the lack of body in this though. Too sweet.

Todo un pastelito de chocolate empalagoso cómo debe ser, una cerveza con un aroma muy rico y mejor sabor que emana de su textura densa y pastelosa. RICA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled during Bengals Tailgate 12/13/15. 750ml. Up front, holy crap, big cocoa puffs, nesquik kind of aroma. Reminds me of the regular FM chocolate imperial stout, but more chocolate, and actually a bit less sweet than I remember, more dry. Good touch of coffee, too. Black color, with an impressive amount of light brown head, decent bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Kind of chewy. Very mild slick. Light dry finish. Kind of moderate to bigger sweet, kind of sugary. Light to moderate bitter. Solid, impressively chocolately chocolate stout. But a little is enough, wouldn’t want to do more than 6oz.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy sweet chocolate, spice and alcohol aroma. Heavy dark sweet toasted chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid sweet beer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle shared by alexsdad06- thanks again, Brad! Pours an opaque brown with a small tan head that settles into a ring. Aggressive chocolate, with caramel, mild roast, earth, brown sugar, and pralines. The aroma is all cocoa. The flavor starts earthy and finishes and lingers with intense chocolate sweetness. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, sticky mouthfeel. If you’re not a chocolate person, stay away.

In the immortal words of Dennis Green, it is what it said it is, a big milk chocolate imperial stout, and it delivers in every way, the Bare Naked Ladies reference is a bonus in my opinion. Sweet milk chocolate, barrel character, wood, just a nice beer all around, solid I would do this again if I had the chance.
