UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 20/I/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: I/2013 (yes, I "had" to drink it, before it went bad) (2013-85) Thanks to Marc for the bottle! Thanks because now I can tick it without actually having to buy it. :-)

Clear amber beer, irregular white head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very sugary, forest fruit candy, bubble gum, lemonade, grenadine syrup, hint of pralinée, alcohol, ersatz chocolate (koetjesreep!), sweet liquor. Despite the complexity of the aroma it smells very bad. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: cough syrup or some other medicine from my youth, candied orange peel, sugary, very sweet, alcohol, can’t say I taste any chocolate though... Aftertaste: alcohol, sugar, cough syrup, pretty bad. Man, I’m so happy I finally got to try this one! :p

Bottle at Delirium Cafe (Brussels, Belgium)
Aroma: Chocolate syrup and brown sugar.
Appearance: Dark brown with a white head.
Taste: Very sweet. Not much else.
Palate: Light bodied, thin texture, soft carbonation.
Curiosity got the better of me, and I wanted to try this one. Not terrible. Clearly it’s hated for its artificial flavor, but I wonder why artificial flavoring in other beers such as the Southern Tier Pumking can be more easily ignored.

worldbeertaste (1727) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Amber with a tan, lasting, thin, non lacy head. Smells of strong chocolate and some caramel some biscuit but mostly coco. Thin light body with lively carbonation. Ever try Nesquick or Wheetos? It tastes like milk chocolate but in the candy cereal sort of way. No bitterness just sweet. There is some fruit as well, raisin, cherry and nut but all of it seems artificial and candyesque. I can see how it would upset most beer drinkers but I liked it.

Reimer96 (1464) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
Pours brown with a frothy off white head with lots of particles in the beer. Aroma is straight belgian chocolate & hints of wheat. Taste is straight chocolate, not overly sweet though and has a bit of wheat in the background. Not a great beer at all but it was surprisingly better than what I thought after reading the reviews.

Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur ambrée rougeâtre, mousse moyenne de tenue moyenne. Déjà testée il y a quelques années, je retente juste pour la curiosité. Un mariage étonnant, on ne peut pas dire qu’elle n’est pas originale! Pas foncièrement trop sucrée mais quitte à faire une bière au cacao, autant jouer sur l’amertume de ce dernier, ici on ajuste un mélange de bière et de banania assez hasardeux, qui ne met en valeur ni l’un ni l’autre.

Breuvage dégusté il y a des années, mais le souvenir est intact... A tester à plusieurs pour la curiosité, mais c’est bien son seul intérêt. Et encore, même à plusieurs, on ne l’a pas terminée. Mélanger un arôme de chocolat avec de la bière, fallait oser, et c’est raté! Autant acheter une bière blanche et d’y mettre du chocolat en poudre.

Gift from SJ. First off people it is a beer that falls intot he category of spice / herb / vegetable. With that said, that is my least favorite category, but I try to rate with an open mind based on style. FFS, I didn’t like it. Definite notes of chocolate and fruit, tje blend is off. There was some hint of wheat or straw. Needs work guys.

Murky hazy brown, thin beige head. Aroma of spent grain, chocolate. Taste is like a tootsie roll, too much chocolate for me.
