3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2014 Stout. Kahlua and sweet choco aroma. Dark, sunlight does not penetrate through pint glass. Thick rich taste, once again, Kahlua. Great. Better when closer to room temperature.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint on tap. Dark chocolate brown but nearly transparent in the light, with a lasting ring of foam. Aroma is maple, chocolate, caramel and toast. Taste is the same with vanilla, a bit of dry grass, and cocoa on the finish to provide a decent balance. Near-medium body leans to the sweet side and has medium carbonation. Easy to drink dessert beer that never becomes cloying, but I had to shift to something more dry for a second pint.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 fl oz. bottle. Pours dark, dark, dark chestnut brown with a burgundy hue, and a thin latte coloured head. The nose makes me think Hershey’s chocolate syrup with light creme brulee, light vanilla, and smells a wee bit artificial. Taste wise, is not as sweet as the profile would lead you to believe. Medium bodied, there is a surprising amount of butterscotch, with dark chocolate, dark maple syrup, and Halloween molasses kisses that lead into more caramel, pecan, roasty malt notes, with vanilla, espresso, and mineral notes in the finish. Totally decent. Was expecting a sugar bomb, but it’s easy drinking, and drier than you’d think. I’d buy it again.

Great aromas of dark chocolate, and toasted malts. Very thin/watery on the mouth with an oily feel, finishes semi bitter. Very sessionable.

This brew was very good. Smooth, creamy, easy to drink. IT was a very nice surprise. This is very comparable to Youngs double chocolate or the Fort Collins version
