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.

It's very smooth...due to the nitro obviously. It has a chocolate coffeeness to it, that is quick on the acidity and fades to a weak coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is this beer is untouchable. The dark chocolate flavor is very rich and smooth for an unbelievably crisp taste. Would definitely drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Block (2075) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2015
This beer is nice and smooth with the nitro pour. Itís burnt, really burnt, but not roasted. Mostly chocolate notes. It almost tastes like you roasted chocolate. Itís interesting.

So, I picked this basically to fill out a mix-6 pack, but I ended up liking this quite a bit. Black, huge tan head. Smell like rich chocolate and some tropical notes. Very smooth and rich. Taste is like a German chocolate cake, with some cola flavors creeping in. Nice stuff.

On nitro. Pours deep dark brown with a brown fluffy head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast and earthy. Taste is sweet with some acrid bitters on the finish. Light bodied with a very thin mouthfeel.

On nitro (labeled as "Atwater Nitro Dark Chocolate Stout"), served in a pint glass at Keystone-Clifton. Pours a dark chocolate brown with a cascading chocolate milk colored head that forms a lasting cap, eventually a thin film. Overall, itís a straightforward chocolate stout - nice malt balance between the sweet and roasty sides, with a smooth mouthfeel. Light-medium bodied, really easy drinking. Maybe a bit of caramel and brown sugar, and a little underlying earthiness. No complaints here. Based on the huge rating variances, I guess the treatment and age can really make or break this beer. Fresh on nitro is a winning format here.

This tasted more like a porter to me. The dark chocolate gives a heavier body.

Nice aromas of burbon, vanilla, coca cola, and milk chocolate. Deep coca cola body, the cap has receded to a thin film that leaves some patchy lace. Flavor is a bit of a let down after the aroma, thin watery chocolate malts, some burbon and vanilla touches, all on the faint side.

joejames (454) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle which states ABV of 4.5% bottled on March í15 to shaker glass. Pours deep mahogany, quick one finger head, no lacing, very slight retention. Aroma of Cocoa Pebbles. Tastes slightly sweet, cocoa bitterness. Light bodied, average carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finish tastes like artificial chocolate. This isnít very good at all.
