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.

When i opened this beer i could smell the chocolate right away. It smelled great. It has rich thick texture with small coffee brown head that does not stick around for too long unfortunately. It tastes of dark chocolate, like 70% cocoa ones. Really nice beer, goes well with chocolate cake but its hard to drink much of it.

dresden (1558) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 15, 2013
Pours a thick oily black with a small brown head. This is bar none the most chocolatey beer ive ever smelled. It smells like instant pudding, chocolate milk, semi-sweet chocolate chips. Its not a really complicated smell, but it sure is massive chocolate. Taste is lots of chocolate obviously, some bitter chocolate, cocoa and sugar. Its not quite as sweet as Choklat, but its very close. Sticky beer, hard to drink much of it.

Radek Kliber (7274) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle 750 ml
Aroma: one of the more potent aromas. Smooth creamy milk chocolate , touch of caramel but not too sweet. Hint of cocoa bean behind. Slightly woody , dry bark like finish. 7+
Apperance: handsome , dark brown, viscous. Medium plus thick creamy light brown cap. Nice lace. 4+
Taste/Palate etc. Full bodied. Wow, I was expecting a lot of chocolate but this is insane! Chocolate palate killer. How you could make this so intense? One sided brown feel with slight bitterness on top ends. This is rated at 10% but heat is all covered in chocolate fudge. I have to give kudos for brewing so unique. I dont get surprised much anymore after trying over 6000 different beers in my life. I did with this one. Great potential but this could be developed further. Darker malts to give more depth with solid bold hop that could wrap such creating in neat balance. Right now this is more of good , very unique creation than masterpiece.

pootzboy (1695) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle: pours a dark opaque black wth a 2 finger cocoa colored meringue cap. Modest carbonation. Aroma is massive pungent and fills the room with malty- cocoa aromas like a chocolate bundt cake just taken from the oven. The mouth feel is rich and viscous, The flavour is intense but not complex ( I think this isn intended with thiskind of big brew). The front is dominated by cocoa-maltiness wih enough roasty astringence nd hop bittering t keep the sweetness at bay, The long rich finish goes a tad dry and then you get big coffee flavors near the end. What a brew! Big win with this Peter, makes Youngs double chocolate stout and Southern tier CB seem pale by comparison.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
Pours your typical motor oil black with a short lived beige cap. The aroma is milk chocolate, dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, baking chocolate, and chocolate chocolate. . . .the flavour pretty much follows suit. Dont get me wrong, Im enjoying the beer, but at over 10 bucks a bottle I cant say Ill be buying this again.

thorongil2 (2745) - , Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2013
(bottle) opaque brown-black with a small brown head; aromas of sweet chocolate and coffee liqueur; bittersweet coffee liqueur flavour with a long light bitter finish; tasty but not very complex

Beerenberger (1602) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Aroma CHOCOLATE, LOTS OF MILK CHOCOLATE. Pours a solid black with none lasting tan head and some lacing. The taste like the nose is CHOCOLATE. There is some bitterness in the finish. Medium-full body with soft carbonation - smooth mouthfeel. Overall, while I love chocolate, a little of this goes a long way. Pretty much a one trick chocolate pony.

Hammy78 (964) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle picked up at the LCBO. Pours a midnight black witha khaki head and little islands of lace. Smells like hot chocolate, and I mean really chocolate. Tastes like chocolate malt, sugar sweet, bitter, a bit chalky. Coffee is in there too. Needless to say, its very good.
