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.

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.

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 a smooth black color with mild carbonation. Taste like chocolate syrup. Very sweet and best for dessert.

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.

degbert (1565) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2013
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.

Dark brown with brown lowlights. Aroma of dark chocolate, cookies, roasted malt and Hershey’s syrup. Taste of dark chocolate, and sweet roasted malt.
