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.

750mL bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours black with a large foamy tan head. Aroma of pure liquid milk chocolate and chocolate fudgesicle. Flavour of pure liquid chocolate, mocha, cocoa beans, a little caramel and some espresso beans. Very rich chocolatey flavours, with a very deep profile. Super rich and fairly complex despite being monolithically chocolatey. One of the best chocolate stouts out there. Wonderful stuff.

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.

Ferris (14405) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle - As soon as opened the room filled with the aroma of chocolate. Deep black with a minimal head. Tastes of milk chocolate ending with a cocoa nib slight bitterness. Considering the heavy alcohol content, there is nothing of this in the flavour. A full bodied beer that should be shared.

Tmoney99 (14203) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2015
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.

As Mark Henry Sexual Chocolate at Cask Days 2012. A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, concentrated Nestle Quick chocolate with cherries, beautiful. In mouth, a thick oily sweet chocolate malt with mocha, alcohol warmth, cherries, delicious offering. Cask at Cask Days 2012.

A very good chocolate beer. Sweet chocolate aroma fills a boardroom. Very dark brown with lasting head, a little lace. Smooth mouthfeel. Major league achievement. Hot boozy follow on. Worth trying, and hits the mark though not the greatest in the style. Still, lots and lots of chocolate, similar to Bakers chocolate or a decile better.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 2013-04-05. Black body with a large brown head, nice lace. 4+ Strong chocolatey aroma, cocoa, notes of Ovaltine. 8++ Flavour is quite sweet, chocolate syrup and cocoa notes. 7++ Smooth medium bodied palate. 3++ Bottle from the LCBO signed by the band.

Our whole brew kettle was in a hot dense state,
Then nearly fourteen billion yeast divisions started. Wait...
The wort began to cool,
The beer geeks began to drool,
Brewmasters developed tools,
We packaged kegs (we built a beer-amid),
Malt, hops, sugary, fermented by the yeasties,
That all started with a yeast bang!

2012-10-27. Black body is near headless. 3+ Big chocolatey aroma, notes of Hershey syrup, melted chocolate ice cream. 7++ Flavour is similar, fairly intense flavour of chocolate syrup and chocolate, sweet dark malt below if you look really hard. 7+ Smooth full bodied palate is nearly flat, which is unfortunate since a bit more carbonation would significantly increase the drinkability. 3+ Lingering chocolate syrup. Not particularly complex, but richly sweet and tasty. Becomes a bit heavy after a bit. Might be better suited to a draft presentation in my opinion. Good stuff. As Mark Henry Sexual Chocolate at Cask Days 2012 at Brick Works, Toronto
