3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black body, small khaki head. Aroma of mocha and cold coffee, muted dark chocolate. Flavoure is the same, with more prominent coffee bitterness, mold roast over muted bitter chocolate. Average palate is thin for a stout. Grows on me as I move through the glass. Decent.

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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
