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.

473mL can from the brewery, though I also had this on tap at Imbibe last night. The can is actually better and that is what I’m rating from (the can also says 7.2% abv). Pours a viscous dark brown with a large bubbly head that looks like it came from a cask. Aroma: anise, chocolate sauce, sweet rich malts, very nice. Flavour: Really nice smooth character, chocolate malts, mild anise, almost no bitterness or roasted malt character, and no booze presence at all. Dangerously easy-drinking for the strength. This is really one of the better Welly One-Off ventures.

Has a pungent aroma of musky malt with some smoke and a little lactose and coffee. Palate is a little watery. A little lacing, pours pretty black with some head. Some bitterness at the end. Pretty full taste - among Wellington’s better. The lactose isn’t that prominent. On tap at volos.

On tap at the Only (Toronto Beer Week 2012 event). Pours a deep dark brown verging on black with decent-sized tan head. Aroma is anise and chocolate. Flavour is actually quite strong of anise with more subtle chocolate. Very fine carbonation. Nice.

Thanks to ryan for this. Pours silky black with a dark brown head. Aroma is light chocolate, lactose and small roasted malts. Taste is lactose and milk chocolate with light toasted malts in the finish.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 2012-11-23. Quick notes. Les chocolatey than I remember. Pleasant relatively dry roast character. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. Chocolate comes out more as it warms up. Enjoyable. Can shared by Tupalev

2012-09-14. Dark black body, tiny brown head if you swirl it enough. 3+ Modest aroma, dryish cocoa, light roast, muted fruity accents. 6+ Flavour is also milder than expected, finishes dry, mild cocoa and roast. Alcohol is not strong on the tongue, but leaves the mouth lightly tingly, light fruit comes out as you go, not super chocolaty. 6+ Smooth medium to full bodied palate needs more carbonation. Okay, shows potential. On cask at C’est What Festival of Small Breweries

Decent stout, in can at Stouts. Good balance between sweet and bitter, though nothing extraordinary in either. Smooth mouthfeel, good drinkability.

Cask. Deep black pour with a tight white head. The nose is fairly chocolatey with some grassy/herbal flavour. A little bit of light sweetness and a touch of lingering light chocolate flavour. It doesn’t come across as terribly milk chocolatey but it’s okay.

On tap at Imbibe: Pours deep black-brown with a smallish 1 finger beige cap. Modest carbonation. Aroma is roasty, with grains and cocoa with a ight sweet milk decernment, leafy hops. Mouth feel is a tap thin for the style but forgivable as the flavour is there. Flavour is roasty-chocolatey with ample hop balance the lactose sweetnes doen;t show uo until the finish and the creamy silky mouth feel never materializes. Not a bad stout, it is flavourful but it misses the mark if what the brewer was after was a creamy, milky chocolaty rich brew. Not bad but needs work.
Earlier Rating: 12/4/2012 Total Score: 2.8
On tap at Imbibe: Pours a deep black with a small tight tan cap. Moderate carbonation. Sweet lactose nose with some coca and roasty tones. Flavor is rather flat for such a good smelling Milk stout - roasty sweet in the front with little complexity, weak hopping even for the style. Long uneventful finish and a sweet aftertaste. I love milk stouts but this one is not my cup of tea.
