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.

Tessic (1045) - Brantford, Ontario, - DEC 1, 2012
This stout poured a deep black colour with a big, brown, creamy head. To thte nose there are scents of coffee, cocoa, earth and burnt toast. First sip was smooth with medium carbonation. Flavours of coffee, very light cocoa (kind of disappointing level) and almost burnt toast. Finish is burnt withlight hop flavour lingering amoungst the sea of burnt.

mathieuc (3377) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2016
Pours a very dark brown with no head except for the medium brown foam that appeared when pouring and immediately disappeared. Nose is of roasted malt, chocolate and alcohol. Taste is of chocolate, alcohol, slight lactose. Milk chocolate but not in an assertive way. Almost ash-y. Body is light to medium and obviously lacking with a quite high carbonation. Powdery cocoa in the finish. Slightly sticky. A fair (chocolate) milk stout but I kept wishing it had a fuller body and a lower carbonation.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Had this beer on gravity feed at C’est What. Poured black with tiny tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, brown sugar, and coffee. Taste is of thick cocoa , brown sugary syrup and dark coffee. Palate was very flat and syrup with a heavy body. The gravity feed may have taken away from my enjoyment.
