look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

750ml capped and boxed bottle. Served in a little plastic hotel cup.

Pours black with almost no head. Looks like a small amount of fine slow carbonation. Smell is chocolate.

Taste is chocolate. Bittersweet. Slight black licorice. Vague toasty malt. Some yeast. Some alcohol.

Mouthfeel is thick but pleasant. Velvety. Overall, it's good, but it's more of a chocolate drink with beer than the other way around.

Had on tap at the Arrow and Loon in Ottawa ON. It tasted like Black Forest Cake in glass - the 10% alcohol was almost completely hidden in the strong, sweet flavour.

Well, this beer lives up to its name. I wasn't a fan of the first chocolate imperial stout Flying Monkeys did, but the reviews for this beer were sufficiently good that I caved and gave it a try. Whoops. Doesn't work for me. It really does taste like an alcoholic chocolate milk. Is the chocolate flavour nice? Yes. But it is pretty much all there is. If I wanted a chocolate drink I would have a milkshake.
Anyway, perhaps it is a silly complaint. It is obvious what you are getting into with this beer. It is chocolate chocolate chocolate. If you want that- I guess it's great. But it's too narrowly focused for me.
