3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This imp stout poured a deep black colour with a creamy, tmed brown head with little lacing. Scents include chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. Plus metal, Nestle Quick powder and bran. First sip was thick and rich and syrupy with very strong chocolate flavours, light brandy and leather. Finish is syrupy with chocolate flavours lingering forever...

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to kbudd19! Pours deep black with a large brown creamy head that lasts forever and leaves nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is mega-chocolate, rich milk chocolate. Flavor follows, huge chocolate on a bed of roasty malts and a touch of vanilla. Medium sweet, quite bitter actually, despite the deScription, but rich and decadent nonetheless. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Lingering bitter cocoa finish. Whoa.

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.

Bottle: Thanks Gothgargoyle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Deep dark brown black pour. Medium sized brown foamy head on top of a black beer.
The aroma is the most balanced, complex, interesting, smooth and delicious aroma a Imperial Chocolate Stout has ever had imo!
Dark chocolate, cacoa, smooth roast, brownies, mocha, sweet chocolate, marvelous aroma!
Flavour is in the same range of the aroma: awesome balanced and perfect pairing with (3) chocolate ice! Oh wow, really good! Dark chocolate, chocolate, cacoa, bitters, cacoa beans, some coffee, mocha and roast with a sweet edge. Amazing!
Sticky dark chocolate cacoa mocha bitter aftertaste. Delicious!
Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, full bodied and an oily sticky texture.
Close to perfect, damn this is really good!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Une bouteille trouvée dans mon frigo laissée par l’ami de Tiso. Une robe brune foncée presque noire avec une mousse beige foncée. Un nez absurde de chocolat liquide, une mer de chocolat. Une bouche tout aussi décandante, riche et soyeuse. Difficile de faire mieux.
