Black pour with a beige head. Aromas of cocoa puffs. Flavor is a bit thin and watery with more of the cocoa puffs flavor going on. Way thinner than I was expecting and nowhere near as much chocolate character as you would expect.

Man, chocolate is right. Massive chocolate and quite a lot of coffee flavors in this beer. The malts melding with it all give off a caramel chocolate vibe... almost like a caramel mocha latte or something along those lines. Pretty nice sweet/bitter balance. The aroma is the stand out with this beer though, as it really smells like, like I said, a caramel mocha latte -- almost exactly. Would make a great candle. Thereís a good flavor here, but I wouldnít want more than a couple just because the caramel chocolate flavor I pull out of it would get old fairly quickly. Regardless of that, still an outstanding brew.

Tastes like a chocolate shake, smells only kinda like a chocolatey porter, weird. Flavor is definitely on-point though. Quite a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Albany, Ga.- Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Deep, dark brown pour, initial medium thick off-white head that dissipates somewhat. Aroma is full of decadent chocolate brownie, a touch of espresso. Flavor has that same omnipresent chocolate essence, some espresso notes and a bit of rich black earth. Mouthfeel is smooth and velvety, could have been a tad thicker. Great in small doses - a bomber would have been too much, nice novelty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep, dark chocolate brown with some red at the edges. There is some head, but it doesnít stick around. Has the look of a shallow pan of motor oil.
The aroma is sweet chocolate. Now I know why they called it a "malted." It smells really sweet but in a nutty way.
The taste does not hide its booze, although it also does not hide its chocolate malt. Chalky, oily feel. Itís basically chocolate malts with a boozy spike to it. Itís not complex but itís damn good.

Bottle. Blackish beer with a light brown head. Malt and light chocolate aroma. Vanilla and light malt flavor with light lactose. Medium bodied. Vanilla and light caramel lingers with light chocolate.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Tastes a bit like a chocolate milkshake but with a kick. Very smooth and creamy, not too sweet.

bottle at stoneyard. Sweet, lots of chocoate. Too much sweets for me. Very nice creamy mouthfeel. Iíll avoid this in the future.

This is a surprise, I expected a sweet milkshake beer, like a ST type diabetic, but what I got was a chalky smooth beer like a Dairy Queen Milkshake, that artificial chalk chocolate is a neat idea in a beer, even if Boulder didnít brew with anything artificial

Black color with a tan head. The aroma contains some chocolate, caramel, toffee, and coffee. The flavor is very sweet with tons of sweets and chocolate going on. The finish is slightly dry but mostly sweet. This is like a liquid milk choc bar. Overall this is nice!
