750 bottle. Orange with white head. Smells fruity, chocolate. Smells like a quadruple, that kind of fruitiness. Has a very fruity taste as well, tastes a lot like a quad with some chocolate in it. Different, good.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pale amber/gold with an off-white head and great retention. Aroma is tootsie rolls, hersheys kisses, and cacao nibs. Taste is chocolate; pure and simple. Some beery flavors are noted, but chocolate is the star of the show here! Body is medium/heavy, low carbonation, lush cocoa finish. Overall, this is unique and incredible. Never would have guessed a chocolate ale to NOT be an imperial stout... great idea!

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2012 Dont get me started on what i went through to get my hands on a bottle of this. Anyway....Pours light brown amber color. Head fizzed up and the immediately went away. No head on thhis beer at all ? Aroma is belgian ale spicy yeast, faint hint of fruit and mild chocolate aroma. Clean upfront amber malt flavor gives way immediately to cocoa flavors. More of a bitter semi sweet flavor of chocolate. Finishes dry and almost a grainy feel. This is more of a cocoa flavor than a chocolate flavor. Its a good novelty beer the media machine turned this into to something more than it is. On its own, its a very unique beer never had anything like this from a flavor standpoint aroma isnt much though.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 A hazy dark orange beer with a small, quickly dissipating head. The aroma is pure chocolate. The flavor is sweet malt and cocoa powder with a bittersweet finish. Much better on tap.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at OH! Growlers! Tasting on 01/31/2012: Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium foamy off-white head that burns away steadily. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Cocoa powder aroma along with a bit of malt. Medium body with a sweet chocolate character and notes of malt, vanilla and a touch of hops. The finish is chocolatey with a sweet aftertaste. Kind of reminded me of ABC’s Dirty Summer Blonde Chocolate Beer but richer. Above average overall.

Draft @ Sunset Grill. Clear transparent amber color. Sizable head with lots of lacing. Nose is light chocolate and vanilla. The flavor is not a normal chocolate dominated brew, a spicy herbal, peppery hops in the finish. No heat of any kind, not hot spice, just Peppery. Yeah it does taste like a chocolate bar was melted into the brew. I think it was very tasty. However you need to like sweet brews. The 9.1% is completely hidden. Really fun to try. I really like this brewery, haven’t had anything bad from them.

Sampled at 2012 Black Hills Beer Fest. Poured a dark brown with a large tan head. Hot chocolate aroma. Thick and creamy. Somewhere between chocolate milk and hot chocolate taste and finish.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap at Martin City Brewing Company. An amber body with a foamy off-white head that fades quickly. The aroma is malt and cocoa nibs, different than most chocolate beers. The chocolate dominates the taste, with a little bit of malt and some spice. A great aftertaste too. Unlike any other beer I’ve had.
