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.

Wow this is where it’s at! Basically as billed... Huge on chocolate Aroma and flavor with a balance all around... Finishes sweet but you’d never know it’s 10 percent!

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick black pour with a rich brown head. Aroma is cocoa/chocolate. Taste was so rich, glad I shared it with family. Chocolate, little bitter, roasted malt, little char. My nephew had his with vanilla ice cream. The beer clung to the glass like poop on tourists flung by frenzied monkeys.
