3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Poured from bottle into a snifter. Pours a dark brown with a fluffy tan head. Minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma smells of sweet roasted chocolate with a generous dose of vanilla. Taste is the same roasted chocolate up front and finishes with the vanilla. Definitely more of a dessert beer because of the sweetness and vanilla. After drinking on it for awhile, the vanilla seems too much. Goes down very smoothly but not quite silkily.

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 thatís it. Taste is super-sweet with vanilla and chocolate. Drinkable, but a little sweet for my tastes.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle pours a dark brown with a light tan head. The aroma is vey rich, sweet, and creamy chocolate. The taste is also quite sweet, very rich and pleasantly bitter chocolate flavor. Very drinkable, and the bitterness balances the sweetness. Overall an excellent chocolate stout.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a brown head. Taste chocolate, sweet, almost like chocolate syrup. I thought this was very good. I would definitely drink this again.

Bottle/ Pours dark black, the dark tannish head lasts long and thick. Coca is clear and is evident even across the table of my family, they even love it. It is veryy delicious. It reminds me of a cold winter days hot chocolate. Very smooth and an easy drink for a stout. I love it. ONLY downside is that it is only 5%...

Had seen this one for a while before i "pulled the trigger"
550ml bottle from Fred Meyer in S.Salem OR.
Absolutely perfect looking stout in my snifter..black of course and with a bubbly,creamy and thick light tan head.
Smells of sweet chocolate powder,raisins and honey. Nice but simple.
Taste is the same creamy sweet cocoa nibs,,toasted cereal and a slight alcoholic taste that seems out of place in something this strength.
Mouth feel is on the thin side for style but the medium carbonation helps out.
This is OK but i expected a whiole lot more.

550ml bottle from LCBO. Very nice aroma of fruit and chocolate, nice palate, and nice looking stout. The chocolate flavour is very apparent, and as nice as it is, this beer is too sweet. Needs something to balance off that sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 28/11/13. A black beer with a whitish head. A good choccy nose which is interesting and invitin. Chocolate and fruit in the mouth. However thereís too much choc and itís also too sweet. Ends up tasting like a black forest gateau. Has flaws for sure.
