COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Holding true to the Northern English tradition, the Decadent Dark Chocolate Ale has at its foundation a nutty profile with a round mouthfeel. added is a Chocolate Extract consisting of three blended chocolates of varied depth. The result is a rich, but not overtly sweet, experience for both the beer and the chocolate enthusiast.

Decent stout. Lots of milk chocolate and chocolate milk powder aromas here. Tastes like....chocolate... of the dark variety and some coffee notes too. Palate is thin.

Had this beer from a bottle. Chocolate was the word of the day with some coffee notes. the cocoa flavor dominated everything about the beer, which was a pleasant surprise as I love sweet. it’s an easy drinker and a superb desert beer.

bottle - pours very dark brown and smells of chocolate and roast malt. It tastes sweet with very forward chocolate flavor. The underlying stout body is pretty light. I’d have preferred a bigger flavor and body there. It’s alright though.

Bottle from Ale Jail, dark brown cola pour with a thin head. Aroma of dark chocolate, chocolate syrup, some brownie like aroma. Taste is a very watered down chocolate syrup flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CJack (52) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle pour, deep reddish brown translucent, thin head. Fantastic cocoa aroma! Disappointingly faint taste, some chocolate and hop bitterness but not enough malts to support the flavor. Thin and fleeting finish, not great mouthfeel. I wanted to LOVE this ale, but unfortunately it did not rise to my high hopes. ---Rated whilst imbibing

chinchill (4207) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle is notch dated March 2013. Aroma: Chocolate! ... but more milk amd medium chocolate and chocolate fudge than dark chocolate. Hints of coffee and toasted grains. Pours a dark reddish-brown, near black in the glass, with a small tan head that soon dissipates into a thin ring. T: Sweet and chocolatey, as the nose suggests. Probably better categorized as a milk stout. Mouthfeel: Feels too thin. Light carbonation. Overall: Delivers on the promised chocolate, but sweet balance, thin body, and a lack of complexity limit its appeal. Still, woth trying.

TheJester (2508) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
355 mL bottle. Looks like a stout. Very sweet, chocolate cake with caramel syrup aroma. Body is slightly thin, but the flavour is all bittersweet chocolate. Medium-light carbonation. Not bad, but a little one-dimensional.

Draft at the Lansing Beerfest. Not much else to say other than it tastes and smells exactly like a tootsie roll. Good stuff.

Chudwick (2779) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUN 29, 2013
12oz bottle - pours dark brown with tan head. Nose is milk chocolate with a light roast. Flavor adds the inside of a co2 container. Odd. Nice nose but the positive stops at the lips. Disappointing finish.
