3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
This isn’t one of my favorite beers, but I thought I had better come back and rate it because I’ve found myself drinking it more often lately. Definitely lots of dark chocolate flavors in this. It’s somewhere between Bell’s Expedition Stout and Guinness in the mouthfeel.... a little on the watery side compared to good stuff, but it’s pretty drinkable and is better than most stuff you can buy in a can. Something that you might not know, is that this is a wonderful beer to mix. Try this mixed 50/50 with Lindemans Framboise for a "chocolate covered raspberry" (this is a girl drink, but dudes like it too, it just tastes good), or have this with a couple scoops of ice cream in it for an awesome beer float. That might sound blasphemous, but just try it and you’ll find yourself craving it. =)

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bella birra, scura impenetrabile, con un bel cappello di schiuma beige. Schiuma compatta, buona persistenza. Al naso torrefatto, orzo, cioccolato e qualche chicco di caffè. In bocca è dolce, sa di cioccolata fondente. Ma emerge subito il torrefatto, qualche lieve nota di liquerizia, poco caffè e nel finale cenere e vaniglia. Splendida stout, corpo medio, quasi scarno. Poca carbonatazione, ma avvertibile. In bocca è di media consistenza, non oleosa né pastosa. Però si avverte. Buonissima, splendido il finale. Si fa bere, ed ha un grandissimo sapore.

Pours a good black with a medium offwhite head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of dark chocolate, coffee and toasted granola. Taste is of chocolate, nuts, coffee and the slightest hint of ash. Body is light to medium and carbonation medium-high. Really chocolatey but not too sweet. Good!

From a bottle on one of the first chilly fall evenings. Just about right for colder weather. Pours appropriately black and opaque with a thin tan head and nice lacing. Dark chocolate is the dominant flavor with roasted malt, vanilla and coffee in there for good measure. The chocolate and hops balance out the sweetness well. Very enjoyable if not super complex. It is what it claims to be, so full marks for that.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours with a thin tan head that fades fairly quickly. Rich chocolate aroma in the glass and rich dark brown colour. Very smooth silk feel in the mouth with dark chocolate flavours that linger on the palette. Very lightly carbonated. Overall a pleasure to drink and a definite favourite!
