3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium dark brown color, tahn head. Milder aroma of some lighter roast, and a bit of vanilla. Slightly woody flavor, a bit burnt, and a bit of cocoa. Medium bodied, actually a bit thin but it didn’t detract too much. Decent but overall a little underwhelming.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Draught) All these beers have a watery taste to them. The Dunken Monkey did have a sweet malt and cocoa nose though. Opaque with light brown head. Watery cocoa flavour. Smooth. Bland.

So this is my 500th beer eh and it has to be a monkey? This is the first beer that I have had that tasted like ham!!! Tasted like a drunken monkey that masticated a ham sandwhich and brewed it. Dark almost black with a small head.
There wasn't alot of body it was quite watery. A little burnt and roasted flavours but extreamly mild to me.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black w/ creamy beige head. Dusty sweet malt nose w/ hints of chocolate powder. Thin for style but still some chewiness. Light milk chocolate & burnt coffee flavour w/ lots of hops in the finish. Found it, however, to be over-carbonated. The flavours were muted and it tasted like club soda.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with a slight head. Smokey and roasted notes in the nose along with some burnt/charred wood notes. The body is lightly roasted with a slight bitterness towards the end. I thought this was more of a dry stout, but either way it lacked defenition and comes across a little thin, also lacking in a certain blackness inherent in most good stouts.

I was surprised to find this little gem in Ontario. It is quite a big stout with a rich, silky mouth feel, aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Working it's way towards St-Ambroise in style. Definitely a great find.
