Great creamy chocolate flavor. Well roasted taste. Medium bodied though the flavor calls for a heavier feel.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent beer but very disappointing. The aroma was awesome. A big full blast of dark chocolate made my mouth water. Pour was a decent deep dark brown but just a few patches of bubbles for a head. Taste was very disappointing after the big aroma. Weak and thin with not much flavor. The beer is almost devoid of flavor except for a slightly bitter roasted maltiness. The big strong carbonation drowns out the flavor even more. If the flavor was half as good as the aroma this would be a great beer.

Bottle, very dark brown, medium head that dissipated. Sweet aroma of cocoa powder, vanilla, tootsie rolls. Medium light sweetness, light bitter. Slick texture, ave carbonation. Ends kind of weak. Nice up front. Slightly watered down. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft that pours dark. Huge chocolate aroma and super sweet smell. The taste was kinda weak and almost had a french toast taste to it. I know, weird. I was expecting a way fuller flavor so it kinda disappointed.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 341ml. Dark brown body with a thin beige foamy head. Wonderful, complex malty/hoppy aroma with strong chocolate hints. Vanilla is also noticeable. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries roasted cereals and cocoa notes. Ends with a good bitter/roasty finish. Well done.

12oz bottle from Crossroads Beer & Wine, Burlington, MA. The chocolate aroma leaps out as soon as the bottle is opened, but develops a more maple syrup vibe on pouring, one of the most attractive smells Iíve ever come across in a beer; the colour is deep chestnut brown with a thin tan head; itís smooth and silky in the mouth with lots of dark cohocolate; but the finish is rather thin and watery with maple syrup sweetness and some light dryness - I was hoping for more.
