3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served from a 12 oz bottle from Hyde Park Wine and Spirits. The appearance is a deep brown-black with no head. The flavors and aromas are similar with a roasted malt, milk chocolate, lactose sugar, and vanilla. The mouth is a touch chalky. Could use more creaminess for the name but not bad.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
poured from 12oz bottle - Doesn’t reveal many secrets on the nose, but my sense of smell is pretty lacking. This thing is quite smooth and creamy, with chocolate / milk chocolate overtones--basically as advertised. Nice roasted malts are the backbone. Nice creation.

Dark, opaque pour. Dark tan head. Sweet, creamy, chocolate, caramel, earthy, malty taste. Silky smooth palate feel. Little bitterness. Maybe a bit sweet for my taste, but a nice brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours dark brown with big brown head that lingers. The aroma is of roasted malts and chocolate. Get a slight alcohol aroma in there. The flavor is of chocolate powder and cream. Tis beer is very smooth with no bitterness from either the chocolate or hops. This is a medium bodied beer. No alcohol burn as I detected in the aroma. Just creamy smooth.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours turbid deep blackish brown with 2-finger sticky khaki head. Nose is roasty chocolate malt, mild coffee, hops, some lactose. Tastes pretty rich and hefty in palate density, with roasty chocolate malt flavor, some molasses, hops, overall semi-sweetness, and backup hops. This one finishes with a rich dark patent and choc malt flavor, backup hops, and cacao and dark choc syrup.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the bottle a deep, warm sable with a thick and frothy tan head. Aroma has a strong overtone of sweet chocolate plus notes of licorice and molasses and a hint of quality roast coffee. Flavor has firm chocolate, licorice and molasses notes plus undertones of caramel and coffee, and is rather sweet but not too sweet for a beer. Firm, smooth body has a good amount of fizz. Worth a drive to the package store!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium sized beige head. The aroma is chocolatey with light roast, mild sweetness and some earthy tones mixed in. The flavor is semi sweet chocolate, mild roasted malts, a splash of caramel, light coffee and mild bitterness to the finish. Medium bodied, very smooth mouth feel. This is pretty good and I would probably buy this again which doesn’t happen very often.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Black with a minimal sudsy tan head. Nose is nutty, cocoa husks, light roast, earthy hops. Flavor is bitter at first, lots of dark fruits particularly prunes and dates in the middle with a chocolate milk like finish. A little bit of brine/olives. Sticky bitterness lingers. Solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. What? Do we have a winner from Breckenridge? Huh? Let’s go... Black appearance with a dark brown head. Roasty, chocolate malty aroma with notes of caramel and light espresso. Creamy mouth feel. Dark toffee/chocolate flavor that’s fairly roasty with a fair amount of caramel. Pretty sweet but pretty easy drinking. Not that bad.
