3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This review was carried out in the ’Troll Keller’ Gent, Belgium: Jan 2009.
The 33cl bottle was poured into a fluted vase and it wouldn’t quiet fit in. The bar was dark but the beer appeared a deep amber, an off-white head sat on top.
It smelt like a chocolate orange.
The taste was of milk chocolate and raspberries, which I found a bit strange at first.
Fairly high carbonisation, but it couldn’t be called ’fizzy’.
The aftertaste was dry, an interesting beer and a pleasant aside from the heavier beers that followed.

Bottle @ a friends place. Gift from me for his birthday. He doesn’t like me anymore... Slightly hazy dark orange / brownish color, no head. Smell is indescribable: some weird chocolat-pudding and just awful. Taste is the same. I have no words for this.

330ml Bottle (Delirium Cafe, Brussels) - Hazy copper/brown with a foamy head. Chocolate and malt in the aroma. Sweet, chocolatey, nutty and slightly roasted taste. Not too serious, but I have tasted much worse.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer doesn’t taste chocolate like a stout, but more like chocolate milk. Not recommendable.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Absolutely hidious, the smell, the taste pretty much anything. The appearance is decent but thats it. I couldn’t even finish it. After 4 sips it was enough for me and i almost had to throw up. Have no clue why they call it chocolate beer because i could’t detect it in the smell or taste

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pours a hazy amber with an offwhite head.
Smells appalling; something akin to overly-sweetened grass (if you were to consider it normal to sweeten grass in the first place), with lots of chemical odors, and oranges. It smells faintly of chocolate only if you trick yourself into believing it.
Tastes somewhat like one of those chocolate-oranges you can buy, but without the melt-in-your-mouth goodness that redeems them. Extremely sweet, and not in a good way.
Medium bodied, medium carbonation, oily texture.
Finishes dry, but extremely cloying -- the orage sticks with you.
Drain pour; I never want to try this again.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tydlig chockladdoft med toner av appelsin. Tydlig chokladsmak, söt och ganska jobbig i längden. Blaskig eftersmak

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle bought at Beer Planet in Brussels, March 2012.
Brownish with a small head. Very light and sweet with a lot of chocolate. Also some notes of orange. No malt or hops. Difficult to rate, its drinkable but reminds more of a soda.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(33 cl) Une petite bière étrange. Une robe qui est peu appétissante. Un anneau de mousse. Un nez dominé par le chocolat et ses noisettes. L’étrange rencontre entre le chocolat industriel et le massepain grand public. Un goût étonnant, des saveurs sucrées, artificielles, des extraits de chocolat brun fourré à la noisette. Une bouche légère qui est lavée par un pétillement exagéré. Une texture qui rappelle l’eau aromatisée. Une finale chocolatée. Toute une bière!
