Bottle. It smelled strongly of bittersweet chocolate. The taste was the same. There was no hop flavor whatsoever, I really don’t think that there were any in the drink. Taste was too simple and seemed like I was drinking a watered down chocolate syrup. Do not recommend.

It poured a dark brown color with a small white head. The aroma was totally chocolate, but not overwhelming. The taste was all chocolate with a little maltiness in the background. Not a bod chocolate ale.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not much of a nose but a nice reddish color. Tastes of booze, a hint of bitter chocolate and a finish that reminds me of the bitterness of a macadamia nut.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft. Underwhelming appearance. No head no lacing. Deep amber color. It's an interesting finish. Like they say very dry not sweet.

Tap. Pour is pond water brown with a medium white head. Aroma is striking. Loads of milk chocolate, light herbal notes, and faint malt. A unique aroma for sure. Flavor also makes an impression. Also loaded with milk chocolate and faint hints of herbs and malt. Unique for sure, but a few ounces is plenty.

had at the bridge in stl on tap; notes are fuzzy on this one. notes state this was good, but absolutely no chocolate (could have been my taste buds at that point) - seemed a little dry; would drink again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a weirdly brownish pale dishwater not altogether solid color thing. Nice aroma of chocolate dusted wheat. This goes brilliantly with the Mac and cheese they have at the Bridge. Nice chocolate tang without it being cloying. Definitely get some wheat on the finish. Nice!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft shared at The Bridge. Pours a weird, cloudy brownish-gold color with a small off-white head. When we expected something with ’chocolate’ in the name, we thought it would be a little more brown and figured the waitress brought out the wrong thing. Anyway, Pawola22 freaking nails it with ’Tootsie Roll’ as the description of both flavor and aroma. We both thought it was something familiar, and reading that reminded me what it was. Notes of chocolate malts, and a lot of them (and, of course, they all come together like Tootsie Rolls), along with some overripe fruits, dust, and crackers. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a chalky mouthfeel, like chocolate powder was used or something. Dry, gritty finish. Certainly an interesting beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Murky hazy brown, thin beige head. Aroma of spent grain, chocolate, sweet grape. Taste is like a tootsie roll, too much chocolate for me. Too sweet. Medium body, light carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a hazy root beer brown with a small off-white head that falls to a thin cap. This beer smells pretty much like a Tootsie Roll with a light (and detracting) vegetal note (DMS?) note thrown into the mix. Light-bodied and thin with soft carbonation and a drying, astringent finish. The flavor follows the nose with less chocolate and more vegetable soup. "OK" is a generous descriptor for this beer. What exactly they are going for here is a bit of a mystery.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Pours a brown-ruby body with a thin, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is Tootsie Roll chocolate malts and a touch of dark fruits and lemon. Flavor is more of that artificial Tootsie Roll chocolate taste and a weird sour fruit. A bit of a funky, bready yeast as well. Finishes dry with a stale aftertaste. Light bodied and slightly over-carbonated. Overall, no. Not doing it for me. Cool idea, but no.
