2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a nice name...color is dark chocolate in color with brown on the edges. The 1 finger of tan head dissipated very quickly. Aroma was pure cocoa powder and not much else. Taste had a hint of cocoa powder right away followed by some mild after taste I can’t really describe. Mouthfeel was light and watered down.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black color, dark tan rim head, lace slides back in. Taste is light toasted malt and chocolate that moves neatly through the palate to a slightly bittered finish. A nice simple brew, a little light and watery, but satisfactory for 5.5% abv. Does what it intends.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Stout. Kahlua and sweet choco aroma. Dark, sunlight does not penetrate through pint glass. Thick rich taste, once again, Kahlua. Great. Better when closer to room temperature.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint on tap. Dark chocolate brown but nearly transparent in the light, with a lasting ring of foam. Aroma is maple, chocolate, caramel and toast. Taste is the same with vanilla, a bit of dry grass, and cocoa on the finish to provide a decent balance. Near-medium body leans to the sweet side and has medium carbonation. Easy to drink dessert beer that never becomes cloying, but I had to shift to something more dry for a second pint.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 fl oz. bottle. Pours dark, dark, dark chestnut brown with a burgundy hue, and a thin latte coloured head. The nose makes me think Hershey’s chocolate syrup with light creme brulee, light vanilla, and smells a wee bit artificial. Taste wise, is not as sweet as the profile would lead you to believe. Medium bodied, there is a surprising amount of butterscotch, with dark chocolate, dark maple syrup, and Halloween molasses kisses that lead into more caramel, pecan, roasty malt notes, with vanilla, espresso, and mineral notes in the finish. Totally decent. Was expecting a sugar bomb, but it’s easy drinking, and drier than you’d think. I’d buy it again.
