4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Where to start? 22oz. bottle poured into pint glass. Deep black color, like motor oil, only not as thick. Nice creamy, frothy head. Aroma exploding with chocolate and roasted malts. Like a nice double mocha from my favorite coffee shop (Tinyís). As soon as I put the glass up to my mouth, it and my nose are filled with chocolate. But not dark chocolate, rich coco powder. One part Nestle Quick, one part Godiva. Full chewy body, mouth-coating feeling is wiped clean be a balanced carbonation level. This beer kept itís flavor in my mouth for for a long time after each drink. It was a rich flavor of a dark chocolate truffle rolled in coco powder, then washed down with a shot of esspresso. Highly recommend this beer. Lost a point due to the fact that there were some chunks floating in my glass after the pour. Wow, what a beer!

Bottle split w/ Travlr. Cheers! Chestnut brown with a small head. The nose had some red fruit accents. Mellow chocolate. Not much else. The taste also lacks personality. Thin burnt caramel and roasted coffee. Way over carbed. Not great.

Interesting but not so chocolate alike in taste. Nice features and some cocoa powder aroma but not much.

Bottle. Pours a light brown. Mild lacing with a small head. .. Coco, muddy water, and some chocolate kids porridge .. . Overall way to light and just a bit muddled, not my cup of tea .. . . Whatís the etiquette when you pull up next to a dude with the same exact car as you? Avoid eye contact? Nod? Wink? Swordfight?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes, consumed on 4/7/13. Bottle poured into a tulip pint glass. Pours black with almost a finger of tan head. Aromas of roast, coffee, dark chocolate. Tasting notes of dark and milk chocolates, roast, pretzels. Light body with a semi-dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque, oily black into the glass, with a non-retentive head. The nose is chocolates and grapes. Vinous flavors, cocoa, roasted malts, light roasted bitters to finish. The mouthfeel is full-bodied, softly carbonated and very drinkable. Complex, vinous and chocolatey, this is a very nice organic offering! Fresh!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 12oz bottle says 5% ABV (this site says 6.1%). Nice fluffy head that lingers with fast lacing over a nearly opaque and plain dark brown body. Aroma is cocoa with a little coffee seemingly serious and above the swill. Taste is mildly sweet like an oatmeal stout. Finish is bitter. Palate is creamy. Classy like good chocolate. Happy to have the six-pack from the store that stocks it.

Seems as though they may have some quality control issues reading the other comments, scanned the barcode, mine says itís Peruvian cocoa not Dutch.
Not very complex or satisfying, wonít be buying again unless on sale.

Black with a tiny white head, mild chocolate aroma, very smooth and easy to drink. Definite chocolate flavour with a little malt, I could drink a lot of these very easily.
