3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby color with a thick tan head. Color is a little light for a stout. Big chocolate aroma up front more than in any beer I can remember. The chocolate flavor comes through in the flavor as well with a vert sweet finish with a touch of bitterness. The biggest drawback for me was the mouthfeel, very fizzy, I wish it was creamier but overall a nice stout.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A 550 ml bottle from Liberty Wine Merchants on Commercial Drive in Vancouver. A very dark, almost black, slightly translucent brew with generous tan head. Sweet chocolate assaults the nose. Sweet and mellow chocolate and malts tickle the tongue. No hop detected. This beer is for chocolate lovers! This is about as close to liquid chocolate as a beer can be and still be called a beer. Myself, as much as I like chocolate, and like chocolate notes in a good stout, Iím looking for headier brew with more complexity. I much prefer Samuel Smiths Imperial Stout. Itís a great one.

why the god-damn fuck do I have to re-fucking rate this to add to my fucking profile? just like asshole goddamn fucking worthless software pieces of shit and phone manufacturers, you gotta once again have attention to your godddamn fucking software after Iím long done and gone with it. I took the time to put a thoughtful rating on your fucking site and now I have to re-do it over again so I can add a rating to my fucking profile? FUCK OFF AND DIE, YOU ARE NOT THAT IMPORTANT AND I DONíT NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO YOU AFTER THE FACT THAT I AM ALREADY DONE WITH YOU. WHAT I WANT IS FOR YOUR FUCKING SOFTWARE TO CLOSE WHEN I AM FUCKING DONE WITH IT
\Hard to find anything in the sweet stout category better than this. Although the appearance ainít all that, the aroma is all chocolate, and the flavor blends hersheyís liquid syrup with milk and snickerís ice-cream bars and the general sweet goodness of cocoa with marshmallows and makes them into a single beer.
Organic, schmanic. Try looking up what that title actually means in your local area, then report back.
I donít like this beer because of some marketing gimmick, nor some reactionary stance towards one of Europís most mis-represented issues. I like the beer because, as sweet stouts go, this one is certainly a top dog in any room.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 12C. Almost black with a pale beige head. Aroma of chocolate liquor, vanilla - smells like a chocolate factory in the morning (great for about a minute). Very sweet with chocolate, vanilla, a very little toasty and nutty malt, discreet bitterness in a finish that dries out just enough not to make the sweetness overwhelming. Not great chocolate, not much beer. Fairly disappointing.
