A robust and smooth chocolately stout brewed with fair trade Peruvian cocoa powder, lactose (milk sugar) and a touch of flaked oats. With an inviting aroma of dark chocolate and a silky smooth unfiltered malt body, this unique stout is the perfect winter treat.

Draft - Dark roast, dark chocolate and some nice molasses. Jet black with a rich brown head. Little bit of molasses and booze, dark chocolate and a sweet boozy finish. Not bad, but booze dominates.

7.2% 750ml bottle from the LCBO.  The beer pours a pitch black with a solid tan head that dissipates into a ring around the glass. Rich chocolate, umami, soft cocoa and  lactose. Full bodied with a velvety soft mouthfeel. The taste is soft milky chocolate, roasty, a bit of a cross between cacao/coffee.   Richly sweet and delicious.

750ml swing top bottle. Jet black pour, big, rocky brown head. Lots of sweet cocoa in the aroma, with some lactic sweetness too with a decent amount of roasty malts, and some coffee. Thick mouth feel, very soft carb. The finish is sweet and chocolatey, with more lactic sweetness, and the roasty coffee rounds it out. A great dessert stout!

probstblueribbon (2900) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
750 ml bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown-black with a nice deep mocha head. Aroma: Roasted barley, dark chocolate, a little grape jam, dark-roasted coffee, a touch ashen, black strap molasses, sweet, dark and delicious. Palate: Medium-full body with silky carbonation and a powdery, lightly astringent finish. Flav.: Quite sweet and rich, lots of rich chocolate and a touch of coffee, cocoa powder, a little grape jam, a bit of molasses, so sweet, thick and rich; sweet without being cloying due to sufficient bitterness and a long dark-roasted malt, chocolatey finish.

Unctuous. Lovely stuff, even on a 30 degree summer’s day.

Bitter chocolate aroma. Opaque, dark brown colour. Flavour of milk chocolate and honey. Medium body and low carbonation. Very tasty.

TheJester (1866) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
750 mL bottle. Not a bad stout, but the name is overstated. There is chocolate, and if you really stretch it, there is chocolate milk. But it is just not full or creamy enough in body to deserve the name. As is often the case, a "major" micro wimps out on boldness to retain mainstream appeal. These guys do Brit-style well; perhaps that’s the realm within which they should be working.

Helsdon (150) - Toronto, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
Big bottle from my local LCBO capped and with a swing-top on the side. Like I was going to save any. Peshaw! Standard stout look. Oddly the stuff smells a lot like chocolate milk. I mean sure some chocolate, malts, but actual chocolate milk? Weird. The taste is sweet malty, roasted malt, some chocolate. It’s like they mixed beer and chocolate milk, rather than brewing it. But it works.

Karol (633) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 2, 2014
Tapped at Bryden’s pub in Toronto. Overall an interesting milk chocolate stout. The chocolate is present there, no doubt, in aroma and taste. Black color with a beige thick head. Taste is roasted malt, espresso, a lot of medium dark biter chocolate! Some mild sourness in the finish. Full body, not so easy to drink.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a deep almost-black with a dark ochre-tan head. Aroma and flavour both deliver the promised chocolate notes, along with a dark roasted maltiness. Flavour has a bit of coffee as well. Sweet, but not overly, and it finishes with a nice balance of dry roastiness and milky sweetness. Would like it to have a bit more body, but otherwise, a nice beer.

Cask. Black with a thin tan head. Cocoa, bourbon, licorice and a touch of smoke. Light carbonation and moderate body. Sweetness just in check. Full mouth feel. Enjoy in moderation. One of Welly’s better brews.
