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.

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 loverís dream beer.

Aroma is a mixture of chocolate, fudge, chocolate cake chocolate covered nuts. The flavor is cocoa, chocolate covered nuts, malts and a fruity and tart finish.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a small head on it. Strong chocolate notes to the nose of this with just a hint of roasting underneath. Little bit of sweetness to the taste, but great chocolate flavors in it.

The aroma is this beer is untouchable. The dark chocolate flavor is very rich and smooth for an unbelievably crisp taste. Would definitely drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this beer from a bottle. Chocolate was the word of the day with some coffee notes. the cocoa flavor dominated everything about the beer, which was a pleasant surprise as I love sweet. itís an easy drinker and a superb desert beer.

Bottle strangely bottled January AND March 2013 ... I donít know which, but whatever. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Appearance: Very, very deep black color, but a good amount of ruby coloring when held up to light. Two finger head goes down to a tan ring. Looks pretty good. Smell: INSANE aroma. Massive amounts of chocolate... this beer seriously smells like Cocoa Puffs. Impossible to NOT give this beer a 5. Itís supposed to be chocolatey, and the smell certainly gives you that. Taste/feel: Gotta admit that Iím surprised this beer only has an 82 rating. The beer is dubbed "Decadent", and it really is ... maybe not so much in the mouthfeel, but the taste and smell? Most definitely on point. Massive cocoa on the start and through the sip, but then the finish has a roasty malt characteristic to give it another dimension... I was scared that this might just taste like chocolate through-and-through. Decadentís most definitely heavy on the cocoa/chocolate, but thatís what I wanted. The mouthfeel is relatively thin, which is a definite bummer, but it DOES help to make the beer more drinkable. And considering itís 5.5% ABV, you could enjoy two or three without feeling like youíre going to fall over. Very enjoyable, and this has to be my favorite beer from Atwater, which is a brewery that tends to underwhelm me. If the feel on this one were to be a little bit creamier, and the aftertaste was more like the taste is on the front, this could be my favorite chocolate-forward stout. Regardless, a shockingly tasty beer... and the price is right.

As soon as I smelled it I knew it was going to be good..a little lighter than expected but delicious..and not as potent as others in this realm so you can enjoy a few without getting too tipsy. Overall really tasty.
