Puisque cette ’’bière’’ n’a rien d’une bière, je vais la noter pour ce qu’elle est objectivement et non pas pour ce qu’elle prétend être (càd une bière). Dégustée entre une dizaines de convives pendant le dessert lors d’un repas à la cabane à sucre. Cette bière sent le chocolat à des kilomètres dès la bouteille débouchée. Au début, on croit sentir du café-Bailey’s et des noisettes. Non pas un bon chocolat noir amer de dégustation, mais un chocolat au lait bien moyen. Du Nutella en fait. En bouche, l’effervescence et l’alcool allègent le tout et tant mieux, sinon mes 9 convives et moi-même n’aurions pas su terminer la bouteille! C’est encore très chocolaté et toujours de ce même chocolat de Dollorama. En bref, je n’ai pas aimé cette bière mais il faut dire que je ne suis pas un amateur de sucre à la base. Peut-être suis-je mauvais juge d’une telle bière?

Bouteille âgée d’environ six mois. Le chocolat frappe tout de suite en nez, avec des noisettes ; l’oeil est également assez chocolaté merci, avec un liquide épais, brun foncé et sirupeux. Bouche intense, notes de Quik, les saveurs sont complexes et très denses, mais les malts ne font que servir de soutien aux chocolats. On aurait aussi préféré une présence plus prononcée des houblons. L’alcool est bien caché. Savoureuse, brutale, mais elle fatigue un peu à la longue.

Brownie nose. Dark red brown appearance. Dark chocolate brown batter flavor. Very good. But very glad it’s a small pour

Pours clear (flashlight confirmed) ruby brown with two fingers of dense tan head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. (8/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild bitter. (8/10) Medium to full body, moderate to low carbonation, slightly oily and bittersweet creamy finish. (4/5) What an extremely silly beer. Except, where it isn’t. Which is just about everywhere. Subtle? No. Bombastic? Yes. Good? Oh my goodness gracious yes. Think a slightly runny Hershey syrup milkshake, that makes the room get a little wobbly after a bit. (The ABV is seriously well-hidden, which for a double-digit product, is no mean feat. It’s not un-boozy - but it’s nowhere near as boozy as it should be.) Yes, it’s over the top and sweet. Yes, it’s one-dimensional. But, that dimension is chocolate. Mmmm... the Chocolate Dimension… And, it’s a milk stout (in addition to “chocolate" and “imperial” - how many adjectives can you add to a given style, anyway?), so there’s a lactose creaminess that plays well with the chocolate. I know some folks don’t like this. Those folks are wrong. (16/20)

Deep black pour with a thick white head. The aroma is great. Loads of Hershey like syrup that brings back memories of the BNL beer. Syrupy and sweet which actually helps enhance the fudginess of this beer. Bitterness is just right to balance and it’s a pretty pleasant brew. Glad I’ve only got 4 oz to get through though.

Cervesa amb total protagonisme per la xocolata tant en gust com al aroma. Cerveza con un total protagonismo por el chocolate tanto en sabor como en el aroma.

January 2, 2015 - on draught at WVRST. Black with a pretty solid creamy brown head, looks good, fairly thick too. Tasting notes ... look, this is CHOCOLATE; dark chocolate, milk chocolate, choc milk, After Eight mint chocolate, a little chocolate liqueur (oh yes, there’s alcohol here) ... roasty, strong and bracing - hell yeah it’s one-dimensional - did you notice the name? the box? Anyway, not a thick-bodied as I expected, but decent - a little undercarbonated, and it finishes like, well, chocolate milk - but if you go in with the right expectation, it delivers. My wife loved it.

750 mL bottle. The pour is a nice dark brown/black color with a large pillowy khaki head and a great sticky amount of lace. The aroma heavy chocolate. It's almost like a chocolate milk. The roast takes a back seat to the chocolate dominance. The flavor starts out a little weird, but then takes the chocolate milk back on. It's like chocolate syrup. Only a little thinner. The mouth feel is oily and slick with no real body to it at all. The aftertaste is lingeringly chocolatey and nice, but thin and quick fading. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is tootsie roll, a little boozy, chocolate milk. Appearance is black, brown head. Taste is a bit sour, roasted malt, dark chocolate milk. Mouthfeel is oily, but carbonated, aftertaste is nice. Overall, it’s decent but there is some lost potential there.

Bottle. Color black with small head. Aroma chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, cocoa, milk, vanilla. Taste chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, vanilla, cream. Great beer.
