3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 650 bomber. Thin Mocha colored Head recedes quickly. Too thin for my liking, (think bath bubbles). chocolate alcohol nose. Thin mouthfeel. Needs more carbonation. Body is appropriately a dark chocolate brown. Taste is okay. Hints of molasses. May appeal to some due the chocolate, but I find it comes off flat. Overall I'm disappointed, this was much better a few years ago.

De couleur noir avec une petite mousse. Une odeur de chocolat vient ouvrir le bal. Le sucre et le moka ferme le bal. En bouche, C’est un chocolat doux, dilué dans l’eau. Une porter bien dilué. Un faible taux d’alcool lui joue des tours. Un petit gout de café noir et chocolat qui est parfaitement dilué! C’est bien mais c’est pas top!

Chilliwack, BC - Sardis Liquors - 650 ml bomber. Dark brown pour, mocha colored head, nice film of lacing. Heavy chocolate aroma, a hint of licorice. Flavor is solid with some unsweetened baker’s chocolate, some earthy topsoil notes, a brief touch of licorice in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth, could have been just a tad thicker. Rating #32 of my 2016 vacation.

Bottle into glass. Aroma of chocolate with a hops background. Pours black with minimal tan head. Taste is medium bitter. Full bodied with an oily texture, and very fizzy carbonation. Would be good if it wasn’t over carbonated.

Rich and chocolaty with a bit of roast. Sweet up front turning more bitter in the finish. Still definitely a dessert beer, though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: nearly opaque black, one fat finger of fluffy tan head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: milky chocolate, light coffee, malted milk, lightly nutty. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Full body, moderate-low carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Sweet and milky chocolate leads out, but it’s backed up with enough bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Decent depth and pleasantly balanced. (14/20)

Bottle from the Strath. Pours black with a thin khaki head. leaves trace lacing in the glass. massive chocolate notes on the nose. very nicely done. lovely chocolate on the tongue as well. Has a nice amount of bitterness on the finish to keep things tidy and neat. Definitely the highlight of the trip.
