chinchill (3592) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2015
From a bottle. Chocolate dominates the coffee in the aroma but not in the flavor where they are rather equal. Light-medium sweet and moderately malty. O: very good but not up with Youngs Dbl Choc.

MrBlueSky93 (504) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle from Beers 52. Cocoa Powder, Chocolate Syrup, Coffee to the nose, possible orange notes. To the tongue, there is initial Chocolate, similar to Sam Smiths but not quite as Chocolate-y or Coffee-y. Coffee being the second taste and then orange peel, almost candied, very sweet. Nice beer

Pailhead (6147) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of huge sweet chocolate syrup, cocoa powder, and a hint of fruit. It pours a dark brown with an orange glow around the edges of the glass when held to the light. It has a one finger khaki head that quickly fades to a soapy ring around the edges of the glass. There are some very thin rings left behind on the sides of the glass after each sip. The flavor starts with heavy chocolate syrup and cocoa powder. There is some very faint dark fruit notes in the middle. The finish has some very light roasty notes. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, it’s a solid dessert beer if you really like chocolate, but a full bottle is simply too much. Drinking this much chocolate syrup just wears on me too quickly.
