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.

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.

Flavor is lightly bitter roast and chocolate malt, medium chocolate milk/syrup, lactose sweetness, vanilla, prunes, light earthy hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

750ml bottle. Black in colour with a large long lasting beige head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of chocolate, some roast, chocolate, some vanilla and more chocolate. The flavour is sweet first with lots of chocolate, powdered chocolate, some alcohol. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, lots of chocolate and sweet. Exactly as it says it will be. So much chocolate. Surprised by the lack of body in this though. Too sweet.

Todo un pastelito de chocolate empalagoso cmo debe ser, una cerveza con un aroma muy rico y mejor sabor que emana de su textura densa y pastelosa. RICA.

Sampled during Bengals Tailgate 12/13/15. 750ml. Up front, holy crap, big cocoa puffs, nesquik kind of aroma. Reminds me of the regular FM chocolate imperial stout, but more chocolate, and actually a bit less sweet than I remember, more dry. Good touch of coffee, too. Black color, with an impressive amount of light brown head, decent bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Kind of chewy. Very mild slick. Light dry finish. Kind of moderate to bigger sweet, kind of sugary. Light to moderate bitter. Solid, impressively chocolately chocolate stout. But a little is enough, wouldnt want to do more than 6oz.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy sweet chocolate, spice and alcohol aroma. Heavy dark sweet toasted chocolate flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid sweet beer.

750 ml bottle shared by alexsdad06- thanks again, Brad! Pours an opaque brown with a small tan head that settles into a ring. Aggressive chocolate, with caramel, mild roast, earth, brown sugar, and pralines. The aroma is all cocoa. The flavor starts earthy and finishes and lingers with intense chocolate sweetness. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, sticky mouthfeel. If youre not a chocolate person, stay away.

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.
