3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Lemon Tree, 2/28. $3.25 for half-off Tuesday. Served in a Delerium Tremens chalice, it looks just a little darkish brown, with a thin Belgian style foam atop. smell is a nice, sweet milk chocolate, maybe even a Godiva. Taste is equally sweet and milk chocolatey. The cocoa taste shines in a beer that is not a stout, the usual style to which chocolate is added. So no roasty notes, just a wonderful chocolate sensation. This is the first Boulevard "extreme" beer Iíve gotten to taste, and itís a winner./

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. slightly hazy copper with a medium, eggshell colored head. honey, cocoa, maple aroma. flavors of bitter bakers chocolate and honey. hops lend a faint floral/grassy note. any bitterness seems to be from cocoa. there is a moderate malt sweetness and a full body like a malty irish ale base. the grassy notes are a bit distracting and linger in the aftertaste. i donít know..its alright.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Aaron. Pours a medium amber color with a finger of two of eggshell foam. Nose is off putting with a mixture of grain and chocolate but there is some strange copper pennies, fishy weirdness that isnít very appealing. On the palate it makes more sense than the nose with nice balance between grainy malt sweetness and bitter round chocolate notes. Flavors are focused and the resulting beer is unique and well done. Quite surprised by this especially given the aromas.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light brown with a thick white head. Aroma is roasted cocoa, a bit of spice and oddly a whiff of peanut butter. Flavor is roasted cocoa with a bit of bitterness and a surprisingly clean finish. A tiny bit of hops adds a little bite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Beer Junction. Pours pale with white head. Aroma is, not surprisingly, dominated by chocolate. Cocoa nibs, a bit earthy -- the cocoa runs deep in this. Taste: chocolate "laffy taffy banana" bread. Palate: full body, thick. Overall: Iíd say this is a novelty beer, but itís put together well enough to not be *just* a novelty. Still, itíd be nearly impossible to drink more than 6 oz of this and be happy about it, and Iím not sure Iíd ever go for a bottle of this except to share it with somebody after saying the words, "do you want to try something bizarre?"

Bomber, pours a caramel color with an off white head, I was expecting it to be a little bit dark and heavier taste but it is not, taste is light and sweet with chocolate, vanilla, and malt, light bittersweet finish, not what I was initially expecting but still very good

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a very large light tan head on it. Nose is actually a bit hoppy for me, and has some grassy/earthy notes to it. Taste is a bit bitter up front, actually, but has some subtle chocolate notes to it, and is pleasantly lighter on the palate than most chocolate beers. Interesting.

Draft. Amber pour. Smells like a caramel tootsie roll. Flavor is burnt sugar and sweet cocoa. Just not my style.

What an interesting ale. Pours a beautiful sediment ridden vibrant peach color. Lots of vanilla aromas and what Iím guessing is white chocolate. Very sweet... But well balanced with a bittersweet cocoa finish. Dusty cocoa powder and banana are in there as well. A really unique and delicious ale.
