3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had this from a bottle, poured into a standard glass. Thoroughly enjoyed the aroma, a nice dark chocolate and almost caramel or coffee hint.
Very dark black in color, with a minimal head.
medium body, creamy, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish from this one.
I enjoyed this, but I definitely prefer their Vanilla Java porter to this one!

Bottle. Pours black with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of chocolate with some vanilla. Mostly sweet chocolate flavor with hint of vanilla and a touch of bitterness at the end. Nice beer. Thanks for the trade JB.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The first sips are rather strong with cocoa, and although that mellowed for a bit into a more sympathetic chocolate ale (not really sure whether this merits being classified as a stout), later on the negatives return with some astringent (another rater had a good adjective in "chalky") finishing notes. It is also quite thin and begs for more dimensionality, especially on the back end of it. Not something I would drink again. Bottle.

Pours dark brown almost black tan head. Aroma is chalky chocolate syrup. Taste is the same with a little vanilla. Medium body light carbonation. Not bad.

chocolate, black, In a bottle. After pouring, I smelled the bottle with a sinful smile. Upon tasting the brew, I realized I was having a great dessert. After I had finished, I wanted another Decadent. This is a chocolate lover’s dream beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours an opaque brown-black with a smooth, even-grained, lacy light brown head. Nose is milk chocolate, maple, brown sugar -- extremely sweet. Not as sweet on the tongue, and very lightly carbonated; has an almost pipe-tobacco complexity that adds to the richness. Too light on the palate, though; mars what would otherwise be excellent. Takes it down to only good, but still, good.
