330 mL bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark brown with the final product being almost black – Coke like. Head disappears almost immediately. I Aroma predominantly of molasses, and some chocolate. Creamy, and someone orale on the mouth. With flavors of caramel and cocoa and molasses. Sweet. Long, pleasant finish that really lasts. This is a nice beer I will order it again. It's almost a dessert beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille 330ml. De couleur noire et opaque. Nez de malt rôti, moyen de chocolat noir et de chocolat au lait (légèrement lactique), léger de noix avec des notes de crème brûlée et de mélasse sucrée. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement doux-moyen ainsi qu’une texture moyennement crémeuse et aux notes huileuses. Moyen goût de chocolat au lait (très légèrement lactique) accompagné de faibles notes fumées (cendres, petites traces de tourbe) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt rôti aux petites notes brûlées avec un léger goût de mélasse sucrée ainsi que des traces de caramel puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes de houblon herbeux et de chocolat noir ainsi que des traces de noix grillées. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de rôti doux, léger de chocolat avec des notes de houblon herbeux ainsi que quelques traces de caramel, de café et de noix.

Pours brown with a tan foam. Dark chocolate aroma. Tastes of sweet caramel and chocolate, no bitterness which was strange, but a nice lingering sweetness.

Bottle (330 ml). Thanks czar! Dark brown, almost black, with a medium slowly diminishing beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, nuts, roasted malt, strong lactose presence, molasses cereals. Taste is about the same with moderate sweetness. Light body. Oily. Soft carbonation. Way overrated. Wasn’t able to finish my bottle...

Metalchopz (2129) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2013
Got a single from the LCBO (but comes in 6-pack), written on front label BB NOV /13. Pours a very dark colour with little red highlights. Big light brown-coloured head with great retention and some dirty lacing. Coffee aromas were released at first, but left pretty quickly, remaining with hoppy grass smell. After breathing some more, sweet caramel comes out, but all of this is very mild. The mouthfeel is between oily and creamy. The taste is pretty mild as well. Roasted malts, a little sweetness, raisins, grass and chocolate. Thankfully, this one is not too sweet, as listed in the ingredients are lactose (milk sugar), sugar and caramel. Because it is mild all-around, this one is easier to drink, but the sweetness will still, eventually get to you.

Mystery 6 pack at my local lcbo. Jet black pour, medium brown head. Rch roasty aroma, light cocoa, and touches of coffee. Silky mouth feel, soft carb. Roasty, nutty, coffee finish. Surprisingly good stout.

The beer is opaque with a near black body. The head measures two inches thick, fades slowly and leaves ample lacing in its wake. The aroma offers chocolate milk, brown bread, biscuits. Smells great. The taste delivers what the aroma promised. A superb example of the style. No bitterness or lactic presence. So smooth and creamy on the palate. Lingering chocolate breads and doughnuts, though not at all too sweet. I’ll be picking this up again.

Pours a black colour and a creamy light brown head that lasts and leaves lace all up the glass really nicely. Aroma is roasted malt, sweet cream, coffee, and bready possibly from an english base malt. Flavour is an upfront bitter roasted malts, med-high sweetness, cream, coffee, and cocoa. I think the bitterness and dark malts could blend a little better with the sweetness in this one but its still a tasty beer.

hangunder (193) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2013
Dark malts, slightly metallic, chocolate and roasted notes in the aroma. Not overly complex. Very dark, can’t see through this one much, and a thick, long lasting mocha head. Beautiful looking. Very sweet upfront and throughout, with cocoa notes, in the middle and slight hop bitterness in the finish. A little bit of caramel in the finish too. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Pretty good but too sweet for my liking.
