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.

Overwhelming chocolate /coffee nose but thin and watery finish. They say its a dark chocolate ale (malt beverage) so not sure if it would fit into any specific style

Great chocolate nose. Pours like a stout but is thin like an ale. Great chocolate flavor, like Hershey's syrup. Kept thinking it needed some heat or at least some creamier mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour us a black with a small tan head. Aroma is a nice chocolate. Flavor is again a very sweet chocolate but not an intense as the aroma led me to believe. This was a fine chocolate ale. A decent heavy chocolate mouthfeel with just the right amount of sweetness. Way to go Atwater.

Pours a dark chocolate color. Nose is sweet with malt and chocolate. Taste is deep chocolate and a bit too cloyingly sweet. Finishes the same, maybe over a bowl of ice cream instead! Quaff Score 6 / 10

12 oz bottle, Whole Foods. Chocolate cola pour; light brown head becomes absolutely nothing with no lacing. Dominated by vanilla; notable chocolate; slight roast. Thin yet sticky. I want to like this but this feels too thin for how "decadent" it’s trying to be.

Taste from Tony. Smells like a milkshake. Tastes like strong chocolate. Too sweet for some. Good for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark chocholate, cocoa. Very impressive amount of chocholate. Tasty but a little to overwhelming and tough to drink too much of it. Probably would be best in a milk shake or small amount with chochlate cake.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2013
Dark brown pour, smallish head. Great aroma of bitter, dark chocolate. The flavor features a little more roast, espresso, and even a little vanilla, but still plenty of chocolate presence. Palate is a little light, but otherwise this is a good brew.

b3shine (8102) - Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Draft to pint. Looks good; a fairly opaque dark cola with foamy beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; LOTS of chocolate and a bit of roast. Average on the palate. Solid beer.

Dark brown, thin beige head. Rich cocoa aroma, very decadent. Medium body, heavy roasted malts, light sweet hop finish.
