4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
18.7 oz bottle. Pours almost opaque black but some red peeks through when held up to the light; has a medium long-lasting beige head that leaves lace. Aroma is awesomely chocolatey; I don’t think I’ve ever smelled more chocolate in a beer. There’s also a hint of anise in here and some fresh baked bread. Taste is dessert in a glass. It’s sweet but not cloying, full of chocolate flavor. Has a bit of bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy to velvety, carbonation moderate, body medium. Delicious.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow. Didn’t have high hopes for this one. But I was wrong. Aroma: chocolate. Taste: chocolate. This is not a beer to contemplate complexities, but an incredibly solid sweet stout that lives up to its billing, and particularly flavor in light of its low ABV.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very dark, nearly opaque brown with a thick, long lasting tan head. Incredible head retention; it just will not go away! Very sweet, milk chocolate aroma. Smells a lot like chocolate milk. Aroma of chocolate, roasted, malt, coffee, and caramel. Flavour is sweet and malty up front, then strong chocolate/cocoa tones with hints of coffee, caramel, and nutty malts. Nice mildly bitter cocoa finish that lingers. Delicious.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rich and creamy beer that is like a Guinness with chocolate. Not a huge alcohol beer like a brooklyn or other but enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"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."

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
