Has to be in my top lists. Sweet but not sickening. Rich combo of chocolate and coffee but not the same old- same old.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours almost black with a small dark khaki head that is soon gone leaving a ring. Nose is dominated by chocolate with coffee a close second; lesser notes of vanilla, caramel, orange rind and a definite alcohol background. Taste is only lightly sweet at the start with the coffee and cocoa bitterness quickly becoming the focus before some more light sweetness appears in the finish. Mouth is full and creamy with soft carbonation and a lasting warming finish.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle to glass. Pours black, light khaki head. Typical imperial stout. Aroma is like a chocolate milkshake. Literally. Hints of coffee on the nose. Wow. Taste is a nice milk chocolate up front with coffee bitterness. Hints of vanilla. Palate is very smooth, velvety. Carbonation is light. Very good!

I love this chocolate treat. Liquid special dark velvety sweet dark as midnight winter Dracula would sink his teeth into this blood-substitute. I don't taste coffee...but I don't mind. This is what would be poured into a chalice in Transylvania for draculas guests.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Opaque hue with creamy tan head that quickly dissipated to a thin ring. Aroma is Cocoa, vanilla, coffee, roast, brown sugar, honey, cream. Mouthfeel is nice with a full body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with an astringent bitterness in the following and an ethanol finish. Overall this is a very well done dessert beer. It’s not overly sweet like Creme Brûlée is but is definitely a dessert brew!
