341ml bottle at Chancey Smith's. Blackish brown in colour with a dark tan head that resembles cola foam. Smell and taste are strong cocoa powder, vanilla extract, mild roasted coffee beans, table cream, and bitter chocolate. Bourbon on the nose, not apparent in the flavour. Mouthfeel is delicate and creamy, lush and chocolatey, with a smooth chalkiness to end. Finishes sweet, roasted, more cocoa and vanilla, very subtle dryness. A gorgeous beer, one of my personal favourites. Cheers to HMH for getting this into the province and thanks to Chancey's for carrying it!

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.

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.
