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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

Spab (2353) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2012
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.

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.

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
