If I had 2 million Ecuadorian Cocoa Nibs... I would brew you an Imperial Chocolate Stout. Brewing with BNL demanded a rare treat -organic Ecuadorian Cocoa nibs -to create a rich, friendly Imperial Chocolate Stout as sweet and quirky as the bands music. We lovingly aged this beer on a bed of luscious raw cocoa nibs creating a black velvety brew so fudge-y it makes you want to lick the inside of your glass. Opaque as chocolate cake, this roasty brew pours topped with a whipped mocha froth. The creamy dark cocoa flavours gently warm with a steady 10%ABV. No bitterness to this stout, just a chocolate boldness that, like a happy memory or a perfect song, keeps on giving. And like great music, this bottle is meant to be shared with special friends and family.

Thick black pour with a rich brown head. Aroma is cocoa/chocolate. Taste was so rich, glad I shared it with family. Chocolate, little bitter, roasted malt, little char. My nephew had his with vanilla ice cream. The beer clung to the glass like poop on tourists flung by frenzied monkeys.

750 ml. Pours a dark pure black color with a medium beige head. The aroma is big chocolate, malt balls. The flavor is big sweet milky chocolate, some vanilla, more malt balls. Quite good.

Bottle from Douglas. Thanks! A: Solid black with a light cappuccino head. Some legs. N: Malted malt balls and cocoa. Vanilla and licorice. Toast and some lactose. A little raspberry. T: Moderately bitter and a bigger sweetness. M: Heavier body though not up there with Evil Twin. O: A chocolately confection. IRS undertone could use some work, but it is still quite nice.

Bottle thanks to kbudd19! Pours deep black with a large brown creamy head that lasts forever and leaves nice lacing in its wake. Aroma is mega-chocolate, rich milk chocolate. Flavor follows, huge chocolate on a bed of roasty malts and a touch of vanilla. Medium sweet, quite bitter actually, despite the description, but rich and decadent nonetheless. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Lingering bitter cocoa finish. Whoa.

Bottle shared by me at Weekly Tasting. Thanks Kevin! Pours black tan head. Nose/taste of cocoa nib, marshmallow, chocolate milk, tootsie roll and graham cracker. Medium body. Much better than the other chocolate imperial stout I had from Flying Monkeys. This one is world class.

Bottle: Thanks Gothgargoyle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Deep dark brown black pour. Medium sized brown foamy head on top of a black beer. The aroma is the most balanced, complex, interesting, smooth and delicious aroma a Imperial Chocolate Stout has ever had imo! Dark chocolate, cacoa, smooth roast, brownies, mocha, sweet chocolate, marvelous aroma! Flavour is in the same range of the aroma: awesome balanced and perfect pairing with (3) chocolate ice! Oh wow, really good! Dark chocolate, chocolate, cacoa, bitters, cacoa beans, some coffee, mocha and roast with a sweet edge. Amazing! Sticky dark chocolate cacoa mocha bitter aftertaste. Delicious! Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, full bodied and an oily sticky texture. Close to perfect, damn this is really good!

Une bouteille trouve dans mon frigo laisse par lami de Tiso. Une robe brune fonce presque noire avec une mousse beige fonce. Un nez absurde de chocolat liquide, une mer de chocolat. Une bouche tout aussi dcandante, riche et soyeuse. Difficile de faire mieux.

Colors of a malted milk ball, aroma of double fudge brownies. This is dessert in a glass. I wont go on about the chocolate but will remark on the smoky malts that come through at the finish. Nice punctuation for this delicious beer. Thanks cards04 for this one.

Un stout embouteill le 18 octobre 2012. Merci ljthiessen pour lopportunit. Une robe trs brune controurne par une limre rouge. Une tte moustrueuse qui finit par fondre rapidement. Le nez est gigantesque en notes chocolates, en caramel, en vanille et en guimauves. Wow, cest assez intense mais jamais dmesur. Mes papilles reconnaissent rapidement des saveurs de sirop chocolat mi-amer mais aussi de caf aromatis. Des traces de malts rtis empchent ma bouche de basculer dans la douceur extrme. Au palais, le liquide montre un corps assez dense avec un ptillement vraiment relch et une texture qui devient lgrement collante. La finale montre une amertume de torrfaction trs juste et bien approprie. Voil une bire dangereuse qui ne fait pas son degr dalcool, savoureuse en notes chocolates et qui nest, finalement, jamais curante. Jaime bien.
