wedgie9 (1837) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Tasted on 5/28/13 from a 12oz bottle obtained in the Easter Bunny BIF. Pours clear dark brown with an average beige head that slowly recedes to fairly thick, even lace. The nose is super creamy vanilla with tons of milk chocolate and just a bit of roast. The flavor is quite dry, with the same creamy milk chocolate texture and some dark chocolate roast. The body is actually fairly light with average carbonation and a long milk chocolate with some dark chocolate bitterness on the finish.

Pours a dark brown. Aroma is dark chocolate. Taste is weak and a bit disappointing when compared to the great aroma.

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.

rougeau13 (1975) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2014
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.

Very dark. Strong chocolate smell. Surprising watery and milky taste. After that chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!

had a small cup of this .. . smell is of heavy dark chocolate .. . light mouth and a mild empty finish, leaves some coco on the tongue .. . dark chocolate but a bit artificial .. . about what you would expect from atwater, if not a bit better .. . . and even though I’m proud my father invented the rear view mirror, we’re not as close as we appear.

Barnoloid (139) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Decent chocolate ale....sort of pitches itself as a stout but sits somewhere between a porter and lighter bodied stout. Reminds me of chocolate chips prior to being baked into a cookie/cake. Not bad but I would not seek it out. Pulled from an Atwater Winter variety pack.

12 oz bottle. Pours a soda brown with a small khaki colored head that leaves some spotty lacing. Huge cocoa aroma! Smells like Hershey’s chocolate syrup. Getting marshmallow in the nose too. Simply mouthwatering! Taste is a big letdown after the aroma. Good but nowhere near as big as the aroma. Pretty much only cocoa with a hint of maple syrup and toasty malts. Getting a subtle metallic taste too. Nice finish of cocoa. Palate is the killer here. Very, very thin and watery with high carbonation. In serious need of thickening. May have worked better as a milk stout or oatmeal stout.
