3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is pale malts, mild chilies and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is pale malts, chocolate, fruit and a mix of tart, sour and slight but increasing heat in the finish.

Tap - small foamy head, clear light gold color, not picking up much of an aroma, but definite chocolate malty flavor with a mild hit of chile spice in the back, pretty smooth finish considering, very good and different overall

@ Rolands Mondiale Tasting.
Highly viscous, some "pieces" inside, gold, shining, white medium head.
Aroma: A bit of cocoa, peac, perfume, and some strange sweet aroma.
Interesting taste, i cannot define this, but its quite good.
Full body and fizzy.

Old rating. Cloudy orange color. Grainy with honey, spices, orange peel, maybe a small but if chocolate. Kind of bubbly and weird. Just okay.

A cousin of Midas Touch. Despite the cocoa and spices, the initial aroma is grapes and the fruity odors dominate the entire tasting experience. This is a smooth, tasty fruity beer, but not quite as complex as the ingredients might suggest.

Draft. Colored deep orange and hazed to opacity. The silky off-white head has decent retention. Aroma is sweet: golden raisins, honey, a bit of cocoa, a soft nuttiness in the background. The flavor is less sugary and has more alcohol character, starting off with crackers and orange blossom honey before moving into gentle nuttiness, raisins and just a teeny bit of pepper heat. I was expecting more cocoa, and its presence would bump this up a few points in the flavor department.

Bottle. Nice beer, cloudy somewhat orange-ish. Doesn’t really taste like a lot of the things mentioned on the label, cocoa and whatnot. Tastes kinda sweet, heavy on honey, maybe a little spice. Very nice.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It didn?t taste bad but wasn?t exactly what I expected the peppers were slightly noticeable but the chocolate wasn?t on the forefront at all. Not sure if I got an old bottle or something. It was a cool concept but may have needed a bit more of the ingredients listed to make an impact. It tasted good but wasn’t what I’d imagined

@Roland’s post Mondiale tasting; woody, earthy champagne nose, some dark honey, fizzy, too fizzy mouthfeel, some turkish delight/melted down Toblerone chocolate in taste. Interesting, but less complex than expected.
