4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by me at Weekly Tasting. Thanks Kevin! Pours black tan head. Nose/taste of cocoa nib, marshmallow, chocolate milk, tootsie roll and graham cracker. Medium body. Much better than the other chocolate imperial stout I had from Flying Monkeys. This one is world class.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours black with a large foamy tan head. Aroma of pure liquid milk chocolate and chocolate fudgesicle. Flavour of pure liquid chocolate, mocha, cocoa beans, a little caramel and some espresso beans. Very rich chocolatey flavours, with a very deep profile. Super rich and fairly complex despite being monolithically chocolatey. One of the best chocolate stouts out there. Wonderful stuff.

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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - As soon as opened the room filled with the aroma of chocolate. Deep black with a minimal head. Tastes of milk chocolate ending with a cocoa nib slight bitterness. Considering the heavy alcohol content, there is nothing of this in the flavour. A full bodied beer that should be shared.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very good chocolate beer. Sweet chocolate aroma fills a boardroom. Very dark brown with lasting head, a little lace. Smooth mouthfeel. Major league achievement. Hot boozy follow on. Worth trying, and hits the mark though not the greatest in the style. Still, lots and lots of chocolate, similar to Baker’s chocolate or a decile better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 2013-04-05. Black body with a large brown head, nice lace. 4+ Strong chocolatey aroma, cocoa, notes of Ovaltine. 8++ Flavour is quite sweet, chocolate syrup and cocoa notes. 7++ Smooth medium bodied palate. 3++ Bottle from the LCBO signed by the band.
Our whole brew kettle was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly fourteen billion yeast divisions started. Wait...
The wort began to cool,
The beer geeks began to drool,
Brewmasters developed tools,
We packaged kegs (we built a beer-amid),
Malt, hops, sugary, fermented by the yeasties,
That all started with a yeast bang!
2012-10-27. Black body is near headless. 3+ Big chocolatey aroma, notes of Hershey syrup, melted chocolate ice cream. 7++ Flavour is similar, fairly intense flavour of chocolate syrup and chocolate, sweet dark malt below if you look really hard. 7+ Smooth full bodied palate is nearly flat, which is unfortunate since a bit more carbonation would significantly increase the drinkability. 3+ Lingering chocolate syrup. Not particularly complex, but richly sweet and tasty. Becomes a bit heavy after a bit. Might be better suited to a draft presentation in my opinion. Good stuff.

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.
