Almost clear, deep red - amber beer. Tidy pale tan head. Palate is light and smooth and dry. Somewhat artificial tasting chocolate, like chocolate powder. Light fruity tang with a touch of red berries. Light dry finish. Inoffensive.

If hot chocolate, was re-incarnated as a beer, this would be it! Tastes awesome. With a lovely chocolatey aroma.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 005: Coffee-tastic 01 on 02/08/2014. Dark brown color with a medium thin tan head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Chocolate and coffee in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt and mild coffee. The finish is semi-sweet with a short chocolate malt aftertaste. Average overall.

jjsint (505) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle at home. Dark with plentiful carbonation but not a lot of head. No lacing. Smells of coffee boiled sweets. Pleasant but un-beerlike. I do not like the taste. When I lived in Miami there was a short-lived local soft drink called ’Cafe Cola’. This is very similar. Like dumping a supermarket iced cappuccino into a dark beer. And I don’t get much of the chocolate.

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelrote Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer kleinen fast weißen Schaumkrone. Beim Aroma kommt kurz eine alkoholische Süße, dann eine starke, leicht röstige Zahrtbitterschokoladennote. In der kopfnote findet sich etwas Sauerkirsche. Der Geschmack ist ist schlank, mit viel Schokolade, nur leicht röstig und im Hintergrund die leichte Säure.

s_hartshorne (649) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle m&s. Redish black colour shortlived tan head. Aroma is deffinatley mocha but nothing to blow your head off. Taste is great hit of coffee with a smooth creamy hot choclate shortly after v nice bittersweet finish. Great body quite low carbonation. This beer does ’exactly what it says on the tin’ as an old fence builder once said to me!

ContemplateBeer (1438) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Aroma: Tootsie roll chocolate, a touch of cherry, light coffee. Appearance: Brown ruby with a light white head. Flavor: Matches the nose and dries out nicely. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Rather simple, but a nice one.

Definitely has a mocha aroma. A bit sweet and definitely chewy. Had way too warm but still okay.

Bottle. Dark brown with a small head. Coffee and chocolate dominate making for a pleasant and easy to sup beer.
