This beer you would need an aquired taste. It has a strong chocolate overtone that's just too overpowering for me - I would drink it again mainly because of it's high alcohol content but I'd much rather a premium lager then this craft stout. This will be the only beer I'll be rating tonight because it is a 750 ml bottle and at 10% thats like drinking a wine bottle. So anyways I would recommend this beer to people but don't get your hopes up beause it can let you down, unless you have that acquired taste built into you.

750ml bottle from the LCBO.

A - thick bitch black, little bit of dark red can be seen at the edges of the glass. Finger or two of mocha head, dissipates quickly leaving some minor lacing on the glass.

N - chocolate syrup, chocolate covered cherries, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, cream

T - pretty close to the nose, with some strong coffee and a tons more of dark chocolate added in. Finishes with slightly bitter burnt chocolate and coffee. Very faint alcohol warmth that gets more noticiable as the beer warms.

M - surprisingly lively carbonation, body is somewhere on the thicker of medium.

O - very rich and sweet. Took me a while to polish off this bottle by myself. I've never been a huge fan of the chocolate suryp flavor and it's unfortunately quite prominent in this brew. Other than that this is ridiculously delicious dessert beer.

Wow, glad I didn't end up buying a whole bottle of this. Sampled from a small snifter at a local beer festival.

A-Beer pours a viscous thick body reminiscent of motor oil as it comes out of the bottle. Not really a ton of head, but what is there is muddy brown.

S-Lot's of deep chocolate characters here. The added lactose makes it very caramel, almost as if you were sniffing in to a large cup of Hot Chocolate.

T-Unforunate drain-pour, this was just way too sweet for me. Reminded me of one of those rest-stop vending machine hot chocolates or a "French Vanilla" gas-station Cappuccino. The chocolate, which tastes a bit artificial, and the lactose absolutely dominate this one.

M-The tiny sip I did have, before pouring it out, was ultra-viscous.

O-Pass.

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.
