3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A ruby/brown color with finger of white head. Strong smells of milk chocolate, reminds me of Nestlé chocolate syrup, oatmeal, a little earthiness. Taste is big chocolate taste, with some earthy hop oatmeal like tastes, smooth drinking. Ends in a slight bitter with caramel maltiness. Too gimmicky for my taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is sweet roasted malts, caramel, apple, pear and slight tart. Chocolate blend in and isn’t the main aroma which is what I like. Taste is rich malts with a nice blend of dark fruits and mellow chocolates. Balanced quite well. The high abv isn’t noticeable. Rich, complex and smooth. Appearance is a hazy amber with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle from notes. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with a small off white head. The aroma had nice chocolate character, some caramel and hints of fruit. The flavor has more cocoa like chocolate, creamy, caramel, sweet, some earth and a background fruity character, I don’t know that this fits any category, ok in small doses but this falls below the Smokestack series expectations for me.

Pours hazy orange-amber with a small, thin bone-colored head that disappeared quickly. Aroma of citrus mixed with bittersweet cocoa. Maybe some nutty malt too. Body is medium-to-full and lightly syrupy. Mild astringency to the finish. Earthy flavor mixed with mildly bittersweet chocolate. Notes of citrus and nutty malt too.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer was well done but not my palate preference. Aroma of Whoppers and milk. Golden grown color and a medium palate. Flavor was malted and chocolate but not as pronounced as I expected. Slight hop bite at the finish.
