3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours opaque black with a small tan head that dissipates quickly into just some surface bubbles. The aroma is overwhelmingly full of cocoa, vanilla, and a little coffee. The taste is fairly dominated by bitter chocolate that starts to sweeten on the finish. Palate is medium. Solid.

Pours dark brownish black with a small off white head. Nose milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar and toffee. Taste is semi sweet. Metallic. Not quite dark, almost bakers chocolate. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, medium body and medium finish.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
In short: Crushed kids Cocoa Puffs cereals in a flavourless soft-drink. Bad.
How: From a bottle at Mondial De La Bičre 2012
The look: Dark brown body topped by a beige ring of foam
In long: Nose is Cocoa Puffs™, if you ever had General Mills’ Cocoa Puffs kids breakfast cereals then this beer will bring you childhood memories (or one-week old memories if you’re like me). Taste feels just as fake as cocoa puffs kids cereals. Thin body plastic notes, overly carbonated, crunched cocoa puffs cereals. This tasted like pale soft-drink (7up-ish) which was flavoured with artificial cocoa powder. Too inoffensive to be awfully bad, but still pretty bad. I thought this beer was very lame, but before going on ratebeer and talk trash about a hard-working brewer you need to think twice about it, because not only is it very easy to do but it is also a lot of fun and it makes you feel better about yourself. What was my point again?

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Strong maple syrup, chocolate, and vanilla aroma. Black brown with a small tan head. Bitter cocoa, vanilla, earthy/roasty flavor... just didn’t quite live up to the aroma. Rather thin watery body. It was good, but I was hoping for something a little more "decadent" than what I got.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured deep brown with not much head sticking around. The aroma picked up lots and lots of sweet chocolate and vanilla, and it didn’t really need anything else. The flavor found a blend of sweet and darker chocolates paired with a lot of vanilla bean.. a touch of smoked black malt as it warmed up.. finished with heavy vanilla bean and sweeter chocolates. Medium-bodied and sweet as mentioned on the palate.. cloying at times.. not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is rich with chocolate and roasty notes. Flavor is a bit less well rounded and just kind of hits me the wrong way, unfortunately.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown/black pour, some spotty carbonation and a really nice aroma of cereal and light nutty barely noticeable coffee. Flavor is caramel/toffee light thin body and a sweet finish. Wasn’t sure what to expect from this beer, but it was really nice!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown black with a off white soapy looking head that fades. Aroma is strong maple syrup and tootsie rolls with roasted malt too. Taste is watery chocolate and maple syrup along with chalky malt. Palate is rather thin and chalky. The smell of this is amazing, but that is about it. This is a good beer, but after the smell I was expecting to be blown away!
