3.04/5  rDev -21.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

The brown head is compact and two fingers high, it sinks very slowly leaving some lacing. The liquid is pitch black (120 EBC).

The smell is sweet with distinct notes of milk chocolate bars, chocolate flavoured candles and hints of dried exotic fruits. It is a bit of a one trick pony...

The taste is very much the same: Milk chocolate bars and artificial chocolate aroma, but it is soon supplemented with a light yet noticeable chili flavour. It is quite sweet, but the sweetness is smooth and elegant. Medium body. The aftertaste got even mote hot chili, but doesn’t become too hot or overwhelming. The chocolate fades slowly leaving room for some dusty dark malt flavours some bitterness. The finish got insipid sweet flavours and some fruity flavours.

The carbonation is light: The few sharp bubbles are long lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.

I dig the chocolate in the beginning, and the balanced chili flavours, but it became insipid and dusty too fast.

Purchased at the LCBO for $3.60 for a 500ml bottle. Pretty cost effective so I bought it. Served at 6deg C in a tulip.

A- Opens well and pours a tiny head that is gone fast

S- Lots of chocolate here. Good peppers but they subdued

T- Lots of coco/chocolate powder. Seems very artificial tasting though. A touch sweeter than expected for a stout. Good balance and a small hit on the back of the throat of heat from the peppers. Just a hint

M- Very creamy and lush. Super tongue coating which I like in a stout

O- Very good blend. The premise is nice of peppers but not a big amount. Would buy again.

Food Pairing

This pretty good stout went well with...... Cheese board with condiments such as pickles, honey and olives

Enjoy
