COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Described as a Pale Ale with sturdy hop bitterness working in harmony with both chocolate liquor and cocoa nibs.

Amber. Hazy. Nice head and lacing. The aroma is kind of marzipan and diacetyl - weird. Moderate bitterness and some almost woody notes. I can see that the cocoa nibs contribute something but it is really difficult to put my finger on it. Oddball beer to say the least, but I can’t say it comes together all that well.

Draft @ Elysian Fields. We were warned about this one, even the staff didn’t like it. Thick stable head on glassy copper amber body. Aroma is weird cocoa butter! Icing and slight Diacetyl. So strange for an Elysian, hm. Like white chocolate. Vanilla extract and hazelnut syrup. Was expecting dark beer and overt chocolate! Strangest chocolate beer ever. No discernible chocolate character. A little nibby bitterness in the end. Soft palate is nice. Marshmallow. Finishes with enough hop but so strange, I don’t know what to make of it.

This was a terrible beer that I could not finish. Smelled of nasty oily chocolate. Tasted terrible with off flavors everywhere and oily chocolate. I wish I had never tried it.

AmEricanbrew (5847) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Clear amber color with ivory foam. Grainy pale malt, bready, fruity aromas. Lightly sweet fruity, earthy dirt, vegetal, caramel flavors--missed the cocoa in this one

Bronze-bodied with a flush white head. Sprightly hoppy bouquet mixed with some cocoa dust. Smooth body of a pale ale with just the odd trace of cocoa. A simple chocolate-nuanced pale ale.

Intersting chocolatey nose, earthy, a little bitter notes in the aroma, a touch sweet and a little bit of butter. Pours brownish golden, creamy head. The flavor starts with light chocolate sweetness, moves through earthy cocoa nib flavors, and finishes with a light dry bitterness. A little slickness throughout, a touch buttery. Interesting.
