4.3/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Opaque, very very dark brown, almost black. Thin dark head with quite a low retention.

S: Woh! Wonderful. All the advertised aromas are there: coffee, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla. Nothing overpowering. This is very well balanced. Alcohol is also present here.

T: This is mainly coffee, dark chocolate. Faint notes of vanilla. Finishes dry with a mocha aftertaste.

M: Medium carbonation, a bit oily, perfect for the style.

O: A very good stout. Do not expect something explosive or aggressive, here. This is all in sweetness and faint subtle touches !

3.74/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: 4.25 Dark black, pours thick with a small, tan head that leaves quickly.

S: 4.25 Roasted malt and coffee with lots of vanilla and a bit of caramel.

T: 3.5 Not quite as nice as the nose. Mostly roasted malt bitterness and a good dose of vanilla. Bittersweet chocolate at the end.

M: 3.5 Looks viscous on the pour, but actually a little thin.

O: 3.75 Looks and smells great, but not as good as I was hoping. Taste and mouth feel are lacking. Definitely prefer peche mortel.

4.14/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Very dark with a very thin amount of head that dissipates quite quickly.

S - Lovely smell. Some coffee and some chocolate with a hint of vanilla.

T - A nice balance between coffee and cocoa with some alcohol and bitterness on the finish. Delicious.

M - More carbonated than I anticipated, but I don't mind it.

O - A very good beer that I will definitely purchase again. It's too bad that this is not a regularly listed item at the LCBO. It really should be.

3.98/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A- dark black body, few bubbles visible at the very top but otherwise no visibility

N - Excellent aroma on this brew. First scent I pick up is a roasted cocoa/coffee followed by vanilla hints

M - light to medium and creamy

T - Starts off with the chocolatey/coffee taste followed by the vanilla and finishing with a smokey bitterness

O - Great stout and a nice surprise as I picked this one up because my local Binnys had them at a sweet sale price. I would reccommend this to anyone looking for a delicious chocolate tasting brew. I may have to go pick up a few more bottles for myself.
