22oz bomber from the LCBO. Date code stated it was well within freshness peak. Served at 43deg.F in a thick English pint glass. The pour revealed a black stout that allows no light through the glass. Lovely frothy chocolate colored cap... mild to medium carbonation. Nose is predominated with sweet spicy cocoa tones with some must from the oats lemony hops were just barely detectable. Mouth feel is big with sturdy malty/oat body and predominated by distinct chocolate tastes balanced against grassy hops that mildly bitter the cocoa flavor in the surprisingly silky, light (for a stout) finish. Very reminisant of liquid semi sweet bitter baker's chocolate. A very tasty stout and very drinkable ( I usually dont value stout for easy smooth dinkability). I like this stout....would recommend it and actually prefer it to St. Ambroise Oatmeal stout. One tip: when you pour this from the large bottle, leave 2 fingers in the bottle...swirl it then pour this into your glass.....there is quite a bit of delicious oat and cocoa sediment on the bottom that really aids in the smoothness of the finish.

Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Part of Fall 2004 new beers. Tasted in a dimple mug. Pours deep black. Opaque, no light visible through the beverage. Head starts off relatively large, but subsides. Deep brown / tan / tobacco coloured head. Rich. Once the beer settles the aroma is of intense chocolate. Bitter sweet. Taste is of mocha, chocolate. Very nice. Roasted hints and a very well rounded chocolate finish. One of the most intense chocolate stouts I have had in a while. Nice one.

Jet black, no room for light in there. Fizzy dark brown head. Barley malts and chocolates hit you right away in the tastebuds. Coffee and yeast catches up in the aftertaste. The aroma is remisicient of cola. Thank you Oregon! This is a great great brew!

Opaque dark chocolate brown colour with a diminishing frothy tan coloured head. Milk chocolate battles with roasted coffee in the aroma. Lightly astringent roasty malts up front, rich chocolate backbone throughout, with a lingering roasty bitter finish. Full bodied, rich and smooth mouthfeel.

Very nice stout. My daughter did not want her vanilla ice cream cone, and this went well with it. Pours dark black, with a tan head that hangs on. Fullness in the mouthfees from the oats with some nice black flavor from the roasted malts is very nice. Bitterness is notcable but not overpowering. Chocolate is there, but agian does not overpower in my opinion. This a beer that goes very well with rich deserts.

Well, I have to disagree. This beer did not taste totally like real chocolate--more like Hersheys Chocolate Syrup. Very nice balance, though, and gorgeous, incredible black color. I like it.

This is mad chocolatey. Like, not "chocolate-flavored" but ACTUAL chocolate taste. The head was practically maroon colored it was so rich and dark. Masterful.

This is easily the best chocolate beer that Ive had. Strong aromas of chocolate, along with the slightest hint of roasted coffee. The flavor is of authentic chocolate, not processed chocolate syrup, but REAL chocolate. The sweetness is well balanced by the hops too. Id be in big trouble if I could drink this all the time!

Excellent choice for the fine beer drinker who also enjoys rich dark chocolate. Poured that most perfect beer shade, black and head an awesomely brown head to match. The aroma reminded me of.. chocolate, as did the flavor. It tasted like what I would expect carbonated melted dark chocolate to taste like. Awesome
