Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy chocolate malt and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.

Pours an opaque dark garnet brown with a thin light tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is Hershey’s chocolate syrup as well as a vinous character. Taste is sweet chocolate covered raisins and buttery caramel. Some Belgian ale notes and alcohol warmth in the background. Pretty damned decent!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle picked up at Friar Tucks, as I understand this is freshly bottled. A black pour wiith a small head. Aroma is strong on chocolate, actually all chocolate. Can’t pick up much else, low on hops, no flaws breaking through the chocolate. Flavor is the same, the chocolate dominates and the base beer doesnt get in the way but doesnt do anything either. The body works well though, a little thicker and velvety. The beer is not sweet so its fun to drink if you want a chocolate fix.

Nose is just a dark roasted malt and vanilla. Mocha colored pour...small eggshell head. Flavor is all cocoa, milk chocolate...lots of lactic qualities. This seems a bit unrefined. Powdery, almost...not sure how else to describe it. Huge chocolate flavor, but that doesn’t make it good.

(sampled at Dak’s Memorial Day tasting. I think Dak broke this open!). Pour dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is all milk chocolate . The flavor follows suit with sweet chocolate and some tootsie roll. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Slightly bitter finish, but balanced. Pretty nice beer with nice chocolate flavor, but the hype machine is in full tilt for this one.

Bottle thanks to a generous BA, shared with others. Poured a slightly hazy dark brown with a brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of chocolates with a particular note of sweet bakers chocolate coming through as well as some milk chocolate. Flavor was similarly full of chocolate that started with bakers chocolate but ended with sweet milk chocolate. Very thick on the tongue.
