3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nearly black pour with a finger of mocha head that leaves a good layer of lace. Chocolate dominates the nose as one might expect. I get layers and layers of different chocolate notes, milk chocolate, hot chocolate, fresh fudge. There’s also a nice vanillan note wrapped around the chocolate. There’s a nice little licorice note added on the palate as well as a faint bitterness that offsets the light sweetness. Finishes with a drawn out slightly warming bittersweet chocolaty note.
My only criticism would be that I would have liked some toasty malt notes to back up the chocolate.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle from LCBO, Parkway Mall, Scarborough, ON. Pours an opaque dark brown colour with small lasting tanned head. Aroma of hot chocolate and a whiff of dark chocolate. Taste is complex. Crisp start leads to sweet chocolate milk middle and ends with a well balanced dry finish. Lively carbonation.

On tap. Pour pitch black with a brownish head. Big chocolate aroma. Absolutely huge. Wicked. More Chocolate on the palate, sweet, and some more sweet chocolate. Long finish. A little too sweet for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 75 cl. Pours black with an orange hue and a creamy, beige head. EXTREME sweet chocolate aroma, overpowering anything else. Rich body, again very sweet chocolate notes while the roast is downplayed. Borders cloying but you kinda get used to it after a while. But still not a beer to be enjoyed in big glasses. 050215

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle (750ml)] Pours almost black with an average size lasting frothy light-brown head. Aroma: Smells like a chocolate liqueur. Flavour is all chocolate all the time along with some alcohol. Medium bodied. Good stuff if you would like a glass of chocolate, not really beer-like at all though -- I fall somewhere in the middle. Glad my wife drank half the bottle because I could never drink all of this.

I love chocolate stouts, and this is no exception. You’re bombarded with chocolate aroma the moment you remove the cap. Flavors of rich, dark chocolate, chocolate syrup, vanilla, cream, dark berries, roasted malt and chocolate liquor. You’re probably noticing a theme. Alcohol is present but warming and well blended. Fantastic beer for chocolate lovers.
