3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour, smallish head. Great aroma of bitter, dark chocolate. The flavor features a little more roast, espresso, and even a little vanilla, but still plenty of chocolate presence. Palate is a little light, but otherwise this is a good brew.

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with coffee, roasted malts, and molasses. Flavor is bitter chocolate with some coffee and roasted malt. Not quite as thick as I was going but still good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with creamy off white head dissipates to about 1/8 inch. Slight lacing. Aroma is hot fudge sundae complete with whipped cream. This aroma seems artificial. Taste is like a thin bodied, smooth oatmeal stout mixed with Hershey’s syrup. Not bad, but doesn’t seem artfully constructed. I don’t know, maybe I’m being too harsh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is very malty with a pleasant but maybe fake chocolate/vanilla smell. Pours gorgeous with a large head that lasts a little while (but not long enough to leave lacing). Flavor surprisingly lacks much. Very watery and a little bitter at first, with notes of coffee, chocolate, and whipped cream on the back end. Aftertaste is actually much better than the initial flavor. Brew is too thin - they should thicken it up and increase the flavor a bit. This has so much potential but falls short.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark chocolate in color with a small fast fading head that smells strong with chocolate. Taste is chocolate candy and it goes well with ice cream and other desert items that beer normally will not. Thin body, was expecting it to be thicker and more decadent.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Instant Hershey chocolate smell right from the start. The taste of chocolate is definitely there, way beyond a hint of chocolate. Almost too much chocolate. Overall not bad, but if you don’t like chocolate, skip this one.
