UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 #2000. Pours a black brown color with a large puffy light brown head. This beer tastes exactly like a Crunch Bar. Milk chocolate, rice puffs, etc. Itís 100% exactly a Crunch Bar.

Very rich chocolate from the time you pour it until the time it hits your stomach. Pours very dark to black. I would love to see more head retention and lacing out of a beer like this. This is a very nice stout.

Nice tan foamy head. Black body that light doesnít pass through. Aroma of unsweetened cocoa powder. Strongest flavor is of fine cocoa and brown sugar. Nicely smooth finish. Cocoa lingers on the aftertaste. Just what I needed as Iíd been wanting a chocolate beer since Valentineís Day!!

(550ml bottle) Purchased from Liquor Plus Douglas for $6.99 ea. pours a large, lasting creamy almond coloured head atop a black body. Nose of sweet chocolate. The body is so thin, lacking almost all body. The taste is like a brownie - very sweet and vanilla, some buttery notes. Overall okay but little complexity for the price.

Bish is being particularly cryptic of late. Wives. Thailand. I like a good mystery to solve. This is a mystery. Baileys, cloying chocolate, rich but satisfyingly drinkable. Not their best but good. Right, Iím off in search of clues. To the airport...

Pours a Crimson-orange cola, with a 2 inch pillow of puffy cornmeal head. Smell is very rich of sweetened cocoa, with slight undertones of toasted malts and spice. The taste starts with rich milk-chocolate, which carries throughout the palate. Very minor notes of toasted malts, and cream soda. Finish is of sweet cocoa, and very light bitterness of English style hops. This is probably the most chocolaty beer Iíve had to date.

Pour from a 22 z bottle. Clear dark brew with tan head, head settles odwn to a constant 1/4th inch. Incredible aroma of dark chocolate, cocoa, sweet malts. Taste is dark chocolate at the front, bitters a little towards the finish to end with just a hint of sweetness and lingering bitter chocolate tones. Best non-Imperial chocolate stout Iíve tried.
