3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
550ml bottle from LCBO. pours a very dark/black caramel with a few large bubbles for a head. Looks like a cask beer.Aroma is a big, sweet milk chocolate with a touch of roasted malts.Taste is on the sweeter side with notes of chocolate and a slight cangy sugar finish. Low-medium body with a low carbonation. Syrupy in the mouth with nearly no carbonation. Overall interesting. Sweeter than other chocolate stouts. Tasty but I think too sweet for me. The look and texture really reminds me of a cask beer. Very soft carbonation. Might try again.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Been forever since I had one of these. Dark brown body, tan lace swirls up top. Rich, unmistakeable milk chocolate aroma has depth to spare.
First reaction on my palate is that this is a bit fizzy. Lactose isnít subtle, and the chocolate is here but not as intense as the aroma would have you expect. Pretty sweet, nearly too sweet for my tastes (and certainly so for many drinkers).
Quite nice overall; not sure why I donít drink this more often.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Semi-strong and simple chocolate aroma. Dark brown color with light brown, semi-thick head. A bit artificial milk chocolate is very dominant on the taste and masks the beer flavors too much. Flavors of malts and toffee. Medium taste spectrum. Quite long aftertaste with a flavor of...chocolate. Palate is just too light for this stuff. Medium carbonation. Overall, here are all the good basics for the proper chocolate stout. Just a bit more beer and it would be a fine product.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
550 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Deep brown-black with a decent tan head. Lots of chocolate, mainly milk chocolate, a little butterscotch, toffee notes, a little fruity, pretty straight forward. Medium body, full, round effervescence. Tons of slightly artificial chocolate, sweet, toffee notes, too simple; sweet, almost cloying with not quite enough bitterness to balance and a kinda bay, sweet, artificial chocolate finish. No thanks.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
550 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark brown with rubyish hints and fairly big light tan head with moderate retention. Aroma has pretty big, dry milk chocolate and light fruity notes. Flavour is full of milky chocolate with hints of fruit and toffee. Creamy-ish texture. Just the perfect amount of chocolate for my tastes - itís quite prominent but not sickly. Perhaps a bit one note, but if the noteís that good what else do you need.

Pours dark brown with beige head. Pretty beer. Strong aroma of chocolate, under that one can find roasted malt. Flavour is roasted, very sweet, chocolate. Full bodied.

This guys is exactly what I always expect from a chocolate stout, but never seem to get. Itís almost too much chocolate, almost... but itís not. The chocolate comes through in the aroma, the taste, the mouth feel, even the finish, but yet the stout is still sitting right there with it holding itís own.
