Pours pure black with the slightest cherry edges on the glass. Popping the cap reveals a delicious brownie smell before even pouring from the bottle. Fresh baked brownies with cookie dough and espresso in the back. Bold dark and milk chocolate in the taste. Quick syrup and chocolate chip cookies. Bit of roastyness in the back. Light bitterness in the finish, but at no point is this beer over sweet. Thick, full bodied mouthfeel with creamy carbonation. Lingering chocolate notes in the long finish. Surprising that this is 10%, the alcohol isn't that noticeable.

A stellar Milk Stout/Imperial Stout. Vibrant chocolate flavors explode out of this one. Excellent stout. A must try for anyone who likes beer or brownies and cookies.

Poured in a snifter glass. Black colour, dense brown head that fades quickly, leaving a ring. Tiny lace. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, milk, hints of tobacco. Dried fruits.
Medium body, creamy texture, normal carbonation. Sweet chocolate finish.
Taste of chocolate, milk, coffee, dried fruits. Blue cheese?
Good, but even with the massive chocolate, not the best chocolate one.

Big bottle, 10% ABV - you'll be feeling good afterwards. Aroma offers quite a bit of chocolate along with some burnt malt. Not much in the lacing department for this dark opaque beer. Taste is fine for what it is; the chocolate may in fact be too prominent & something about the nibs used in the process leaves a little too much dark chocolate-type flavour which doesn't blend perfectly with the malt character. Still, glad I tried it, but it's too pricey to be something I have repeatedly.

Pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head that left no lacing. Smells like a Tootsie roll with a little bit of char. Tastes like liquified chocolate (milk and bitter sweet), char, roasted malts, vanilla and a mildly bitter finish. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, creamy mouth feel.

MIlk chocolate, milk, a touch sour, a bit of smoke/tobbacco, fake sugar, a hint of dark chocolate, That sour note along with that tobbacco is really ruining them one.

Wow this is terrible. I'm not sure if the sour is an infection, the bottle gave no signs of it and I don't get any off notes on the nose. The nose is all chocolate, caramel, and has some nice dessert like notes.

Aged for 4 years from bottling.

A: Excellent opaque blackish brown body, almost no head that quickly dissipated after a minute.

S: Mega chocolate, subdued malts, sweetness, char.

T: Earthy chocolate smashes you in the face, followed by the roasted malts and milk stout profile.

M: Super full body, sticky, cloying. Good carb.

O: I had this a few years ago, and then again last week. I realized that, while this is a great novelty item, I just don't like chocolate bars in my beer that much. Years ago I thought it was great, the second time around, I know that it tasted almost the same, but it was just too cloying. I would definitely recommend to anyone who has not tried it though.

Pitch black with a finger of beige head.

Smells of milk chocolate. Chocolate milk. Chocolate mousse. You get the picture. Deep and rich, milk and chocolate together.

Tastes of chocolate with a big backbone of maltiness, a hint of tobacco, and black liquorice. Reminds me of chocolate liqueur.

Medium body, slightly oily, with moderate carbonation. Feels very light for the ABV.

Got at LCBO, drinking in Muskoka, Feb 16th, 2018. Great look and smell. A little tar like on the taste, with a decent mouth feel.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Look - dark brown, almost black with a thin off-white head.

Aroma - a strong blast of chocolate. Almost like a chocolate cake batter. A little sweetness and roastiness.

Taste - taste follows the smell. Lots of chocolate, but a bit more subdued. A bit of malt and caramel and a subtle, very pleasant bitterness. Incredibly drinkable, especially for 10%, absolutely no hint of booziness.

Feel - full bodied and velvety with medium carbonation.

Overall - delicious. An adult milkshake if there ever was one. Would definitely look for his one again.
