RhetoricalAns (551) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Draft. Black pour, thin sandy head, decent retention. Aroma and taste are both big roast malt, and dark chocolate. Fairly sweet flavor and the alcohol comes through just a bit too much for the percentage.

Metalchopz (2596) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Swing top bottle with a cap and packaged on 03/26/13 and to be enjoyed before 11/26/14. Pours an almost black colour with a deep mocha head that stays a long time and gives out dirty foam lacing. Sweet aromas of cacao, roasted malts and light vanilla. The roasted malts is quite present in the taste with mild sweetness from the cacao, but not so milky. More like an Imperial Oatmeal Stout than a chocolate milk one. Still good, but not quite the style.

The beer pours a dark brown with a generous light brown head which quickly dissipates. The aroma is roasted malt, cocoa, and hits of licorice. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour definitely has chocolate milk characteristics, although it is dark chocolate. I liked this beer, but not as much as their Morning Brew Coffee Cream Stout.

Ferris (7579) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2979) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2014
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.
