COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
NOTE: Pilot batches of this were available prior to release with varying levels of chocolate, including on cask at Cask Days as Mark Henry Sexual Chocolate, which was a blend of a pilot batch and the production batch.

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 band’s 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.

In the immortal words of Dennis Green, it is what it said it is, a big milk chocolate imperial stout, and it delivers in every way, the Bare Naked Ladies reference is a bonus in my opinion. Sweet milk chocolate, barrel character, wood, just a nice beer all around, solid I would do this again if I had the chance.

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!
