jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Slightly hazy amber coloured body with a very thin off-white head. I expected this one to be pitch black, so it is a bit deceiving. Aroma of an unwrapped tootsie roll. Simply stated, this one smells so strong of milk chocolate candy, you cannot discern any other tastes. It smells so sweet I donít even really want to have a sip. Medium-bodied; Insanely sweet taste that matches the aroma exactly. The sweetness lasts throughout the length of the beer and shows no sign of malt, hops or yeast--just CHOCOLATE! A very crazy beer and one I could drink a LOT less than Cave Creek. This one is pretty bad, but I think itís only because its way too sweet. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 26-November-2004 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

33cl bottle shared in our hotel room in Leuven. Somewhat hazy brown with almost no head. Light to medium body with ditto carbonation. Lot of synthetic sweetness. This is by far the worst beer Iíve ever tasted.

Bottle; pours cloudy, light brown with a tan head; strong aroma of chocolate with some hints of malt and oranges; taste is dominant chocolate with some malt notes; finish is bitter with a lingering chocolate taste; okay but a little too sweet

Holy crap, quite the interesting beer. Bottle from the Marlborough in Cirencester. This is a chocolate beer. Chocolate milk in aroma. Seriously tasted like if you somehow had watery chocolate milk mixed with a standard lambic. Odd, but surprisingly enjoyable.

stephenco (22) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - JUN 22, 2015
330ml bottle. Overwhelming chocolate aroma and taste. Too sweet for my liking. Not my kind of beer.

janubio (563) - SPAIN - JUN 21, 2015
Hazy amber colour, poor head with no retention. Artificial aroma, with chocolate essence and darkj fruits. Thin palate, light body. Taste of chocolate, dark fruits and cider. Easy drinking, but nothing really special.

StilleStorm (1208) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2015
DAA; Bottle 33cl. Pours small and fast fading hazy brown. Nostrils fils with a artificial chocolate, marzipan orange perfume. Taste is medium to heavy sweet with a lasting -what the heck finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

suurjuust (2038) - ESTONIA - MAY 13, 2015
Dark amber beer, thin tan head. Nose is sweet, stale chocolate, fruity notes, perfume. Flavor is watery, fruity, sweet, prefumey. Finishes with fruity notes, malt, more fake chocolate and... are those hops in the background? Weird and off kilter, not in a good way.

Marduk (4500) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2015
330ml bottle. Slightly hazy dark brown color. Small size, head, disappears. Looks and sounds fizzy. Honey, treacle, chocolate, herbal, fruity notes in aroma. Itís disgustingly sweet for me. Chocolate dust, strawberries, sweet, caramel cake in taste. Weird fruity aftertaste. Not my favorite beer!

martjoobolut (1898) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 26, 2015
0,33L bottle, BB 06.16 (from Wine of Galilee). Pours hazy brown with beige head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, fruits, malt. Flavor is very sweet, cocoa powder, fruits, caramel, citric notes, mango. Carbonation is high. Body is rather thin. Overall: the whole thing feels artificial, but for some reason I donít mind it.
