3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013/12/11 - Pours a dark brown cola colour with a frothy, khaki head that reduces to a lingering surface film. Aroma is rich milk chocolate and dark fruit (cherries?). Taste is rich milk chocolate and vanilla up front with a dark fruit aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, with a creamy texture,soft carbonation and a mildly bitter finish. A very chocolate centric stout that makes a great dessert beer.

Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Lots of chocolate on the nose, mild chocolate primarily. Fairly sweet smell. The taste is also dominated by chocolate. A real chocolate bomb, almost like drinking a glass of coco with carbonation and alcohol in it.

Aroma is exactly what you would expect, a nice chocolaty sweetness. Taste is just slightly bitter in the chocolate. Let it warm up for best taste.

Shared bottle poured to pint glass. Malty, bitter chocolate aroma. Smooth, creamy chocolate palate. Chocolate finish. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! I am not a fan of chocolate in beer, but I have to admit that I liked this. Probably the most chocolate that could be in a beer, yet it still is not too much for my taste.

Pours dark brown with creamy tan head. Smells of delicious bitter sweet chocolate, vanilla, plum, and sweetness. Tastes of bitter sweet chocolate, roasted malts, and vanilla. Has a creamy mouth feel with light carbonation. Best chocolate stout I have had. Smells and tastes delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Really smells just like fudgy brownies fresh from the oven; not complex at all but very pleasing. Appearance: Not quite pitch black, but nearly so with a foamy mocha head that settles into a thin, bubbly coating on the glass. Flavor: Fudgy up front, but lingers with dark fruits on the tongue; there’s even a very slight bitterness toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: Delightful stuff; a very high quality stout that is off the chart drinkable, yet offers some complexities for the connoisseur.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
No bottle date that I can find.
Pours a dark brown with a fluffy light tan sheet, the beer leaves small spots of lace. Smells of sweet cocoa, lots of cocoa, little bits of roasted malts, some sugar, a hint of milk and spotted with leather. Taste is sweet, milky, some slight bitterness, a strong dose of cocoa still remains - the flavor is more obviously cocoa nib than other beers touting cocoa (meaning- powdered cocoa). Full bodied with a low carb and viscus finish. Nice beer, would be great mixed with their organic strawberry ale.

Bottle from LCBO. Clear deep dark brown, 1-inch tan head. Aroma of creamy vanilla and that’s it. Taste is super-sweet with vanilla and chocolate. Drinkable, but a little sweet for my tastes.
