Brewed with well water (the original well, sunk in 1758, is still in use with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground), the gently roasted organic cocoa extract impart a delicious, smooth and creamy character, with inviting deep flavours and a delightful finish - this is a marriage of satisfying stout and luxurious chocolate.

Rich and creamy beer that is like a Guinness with chocolate. Not a huge alcohol beer like a brooklyn or other but enjoyable.

550 ml. Noire comme une nuit étoilée. Belle tête brune qui prend soin de son apparance. Ma foi, un nez tout en délicatesse, chocolaté, doux, légèrement rôti. Un goût qui en fait autant: équilibré et doux avec des notes rôties gentilles, du caramel, des noix, du chocolat et du café. Un corps véritablement bien fait, rond avec des bulles ajustées et une texture soyeuse. Une finale mi-amère ou mi-sucrée qui perdure. Stout chocolaté bien bon mais un peu artificiel.

"Instant decadent aroma of bakers chocolate, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts and vanilla. Semisweet in flavor with a hint of bitterness. Loads of chocolate and cocoa in the flavor. Light palate prevents it from being cloying. An enjoyable, luxurious sessionable dessert beer. inconsistency has me dock this a point."

Pours a deep dark black with a 1 finger brown white head. Aroma is a strong dark chocolate with notes of a sweet milk and slight coffee. Taste is a sweet chocolate in to dark chocolate with a smooth milk flavor all the way around. Mouth feel is a nice sweet semi sticky yet full body. Overall this is an excellent beer and honestly would make a great dessert beer.

Smell is milk chocolate all the way. Taste is semi-sweet chocolate and cocoa. A bit roasty. Dark chocolate aftertaste (the good kind of bitter). Black coffee. Medium carbonation kind of like soda and dangerously smooth going down.

Pours very dark brown. Vanilla bomb. Both aroma and taste. Completely overpowered by vanilla. At first interesting, but the beer lost all atractiveness after a while. Not great.

550ml bottle from LCBO. Pour dark reddish brown with a nice thick tan head. Chocolat, chocolat and chocolat with roasted chestnuts. Taste, more chocolat, sweet nuts and small note of coffee. Medium body, oily and creamy texture, low bitterness and long sweet finish. Very nice beer in its style.

Super chocolaty. Hints of vanilla. Made me want to throw a scoop of ice cream in it for dessert
