Three strata of raw cacao nibs, cacao powder, and chocolate malt layer a triple doozie of chocolate in this unique Milk Stout. Earthy espresso notes and creamy chocolate dominate this ruby-lit, burnt umber bodied beer simmering with a welcoming 10% ABV of bittersweet warmth.

Tessic's rating

Tessic (1132) - Brantford, Ontario, - DEC 21, 2013
This chocolate stout poured a deep black colour with a big, tan coloured, creamy head. Scents include chocolate to the 9th degree, cherries and cream. First sip was a shitload of cocoa flavor with additional flavours of cherries, cherry whiskey and Cherry Blossom chocolate bars. Finish is cocoa to the extreme, almost syrup.

750 ml bottle in deluxe box bought at YATA in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Looks: Clear deep blackish brown colour with a thin layer of dirt-like yeast sediments; One and a quarter quarter finger head with crumpety beige foam which lasts for 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with zero carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant dark malt which can be smelt a foot away, with rich hot chocolate, strong milk chocolate, cocoa powder, strong sweet caramel, strong sticky toffee, strong cream, chocolate cake, hazelnuts, icing sugar. This is liquid dessert!

Taste: Strong sweet full dark malt, with very strong roastyness, strong hazelnuts, strong dark toast, burnt caramel, sweet toffee, strong milk chocolate, strong coffee, strong cream, light waffles, sugar, alcohol, strong herbs, dry biscuits, lemon and quite strong bitter grassy hops. Chocolate delight!

Body: Full body. Oily and creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Full dark maltyness in a wholesome and smooth background. Oats and lactorse must have done some serious work here. Very roasty indeed, a mix of hazelnuts and roasted chestnuts Ive never come across before. Major dark toasty bitterness to go with strong burnt caramel and toffee. Creamy, rich chocolatey with lots of cream coffee. Nice strong sucrose sweetness with notable herbal hops. Good lemon to round. Lovely!

Booze: The 10% abv make its presence felt but never screaming nor harsh, totally balanced by strong cocoa and cream coffee. Excellent!

Hoppiness: No nose. Strong herbs, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness - dark toast and hops - is fairly strong for a lasting, mid to high astringent sweet bitter chocolate malty finish.

After Taste: Fairly dry. Sweet, roast nutty and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: When it comes to strong chocolate beers, you either have something too artificial like Saltaire Triple Chocoholic, or this: very upfront and honest hot chocolate cum chocolate cake aroma, amazingly roasty dark malt with seducing hazelnuts, nicely balanced sweetness with creamy coffee and herbal hops, not to mention its smoothness and well-rounded strong booze. I am not a fan of chocolate and I admit I just love how this one is well-made and put together to keep me interested. A winner!

A ce stade l cest du dessert. Ca sent le chocolat 10km la ronde avec une pointe caramlise. On croirait entrer dans une chocolaterie. La bouche est extrmement ronde, pas amre mais redonne bien les armes de cacao trs fruits. Peut-tre coeurante la longue.

caribou43 (907) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2017
For my 900th beer, I had to drink something pleasant, the kind of beer that you can fly or dream, the orgasme of the palate, the art of the life and with this one, I was not disappointed. I drank it at the Pibar in Lausanne, I come back to this place and this time, the service was better. It was the final of the night, the perfect drink or nectar of Greek Gods to sleep for the beerhunters and when you are with good friends, it is just perfect. More the time is going ahead more I love the imperial stout, so tasteful and you drink that step by step to enjoy this master of art. The color is a powerful black color, heavy and thin and brown head. The taste is lovely, so creamy at the mouth that even a night of sleep, I still had the taste in the mouth and in the brain, powerful chocolate, cacao, touch of chewing gum, roasted malt and some hop but this is a beverage of sweetness of love and I remembered also the candies of my childhood, the guys make noise bom bom bom!!!!!

Strong sweet notes of chocolate, milky, dark brown with a thin head, medium body, carbonation is soft, chocolate everywhere with a strange metallic final...not bad but not very elegant and a bit boring.

Sample at Kraftstore Katowice panel. Jet black with perfect brown, big and very solid head and very nice lacing. Very strong milk chocolate and cacao aromas with some marzipan tones. Medium to high body, very well balanced, light sourness and a lot of cacao (too much...) in taste with some sweet lactose notes. Alcohol perfectly hidden, very good beer!

Tap w Chmielarni. Uderzenie kakao, mocno w sam nos. Smak słodki, czekoladowy, lekka kontra palona, ale i tak słodycz domiunuje. Jak na styl dosyć lekkie i super pijalne.
