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.

katrinaez (1256) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2014
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Real chocolate flavor. Rich and deep must have with some food or the beer will taste odd. Smell is immediate full of dark chocolate. Bottle

czar (7525) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
pours unclear medium dark brown with a small light beige cap showing some retention and lacing. powdery chocolate, cakey and almost artificial, vanilla, roasted malts, grass, bit of ashes and metal. moderately low carbonation, light body - oily but definitely not stout-ish, semi-sweet grassy-bland coffee finish. decadent indeed - but not in a good way. still drinkable - or kind of.

Nitro tap at Bearded Lady. Pours a very dark murky brown color with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is sugary sweet, chocolate, light roast, cream. Flavor is sweet, chocolatey, creamy mouthfeel. Good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(draught) pours a slightly hazy dark ruby colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of heavy vanilla and crme brle, slightly resinous, with a hint of caramel, filter coffee and some light peat smoke. flavour is more vanilla, slightly sweet, with notes of herbal hops, milk chocolate, caramel and a light-bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

tmongoose (2200) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 9, 2014
12oz bottle shared. Pours a dark brown with minimal head. Aroma is chocolate and a very mild roasted malt. Flavor is chocolate. The chocolate hides any roasted malt flavors. Pretty one dimensional.

Draft at BFD. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Sweet chocolate syrup aroma. Roasted malt and thin chocolate flavor. Texture is more watered down than I expected but still enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 Bottle at Hobbit Cafe. Very very dark brown with a right cream colored head. Aroma of milk chocolate and light roast. Taste is chocolate and roast, a little more bitter than anticipated from the smell, but in any case a touch thin. Medium creamy body.
