4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2005 (Bottle)
I have a new favorite beer.
I was very hesitant at first about getting a stout with "chocolate" in it, for fear of it tasting like "burned chocolate". This is a very dark beer with a nice sizeable head. Lingering lace, and will re-head when swirled. I don?t smell any "chocolate" aroma in the beer, but I do smell a nose full of dark roasts. - like a good bold coffee.
Unbelievably drinkable, right down to room temperature.... In fact, the flavors pick up the warmer the beer gets. It?s a very bold taste, and not one that you could drink 3 or 4 of per night... but a very good "reward" beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml. bottle. Served in pint glass, pours a dark colour, with red hints when held to the light. Rch and creamy biege head, leaving a beige lace. Smell of mocca, chocolate, candy and dark fruits, maybe coriander.
Rich and creamy too in the palate, not much carbonation, and no needed.
Taste is like the smell: chocolate, mocca, dark fruits. And alcohol.

Yikes this was way too chocolatey. Poured black with small tan head. Aroma was extremely chocolatey with coffee as well. Tasted of crazy amount of chocolate, basically chocolate milk and alcohol. Had a medium body with low carbonation and a unpleasant candy stuck to your teeth feel. Was definitely an overly sweet experience.

I’ve had this beer before and enjoyed it a lot. Tonight it’s ok but not great. I’ll revisit my review the next time I drink it.

Pint nitro can served in a pint glass.
Generous, durable and creamy tan head covers a near-black, opaque body.
Flavor has a rich, well-balanced mix of dark roasted malts and dark chocolate. Mildly bitter. Creamy smooth mouthfeel is a tad thin.

Almost black, strong gray-brown head. Lovely chocolate and roasted malt on the nose. Sweet - but balanced - taste with hints of chocolate and a lovely bitter cocoa finish. This is just what the approaching winter requires. Just lovely.

OMG is this a great beer! Just in Safeway and decided to try the single bottle section and I’m really glad I did. This beer left a very good impression and I will for sure re-purchase

DAYYUUMMMM nous avons ici une stout sans arrière goût âcreux comme la guiness ou autres marques populaires. Elle sent très bon et possède un goût très parfumé. À essayer!

Nitro can into a pint glass. Pours a deep black, with a large finely bubbled head that lasts and leaves good lacing. Nose is chocolate and coffee. Taste is chocolate and dark malt, with a creamy mouth feel and a medium finish. Very pleasant chocolate flavor, with just a hint of bitterness on the finish. Excellent.
