jgb9348 (5430) - 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 don’t 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 it’s 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.

Aromas of cherries, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is a subdued taste, not a big as I expected. Finishes like a cherry tootsie roll pop.

WaddlingPlatypus (42) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
250ml bottle. Orange in colour, with a swiftly vanishing fine, white head. Aroma of chocolate, orange, and sweet, warm croissant dough. The texture is thickly carbonated. Taste is akin to fresh-baked dough, with notes of apricots and milk chocolate, and a faint aftertaste of aspirin. Surprisingly good, best chilled on a heady summer’s day.

Pas de mousse, couleur brun clair, arôme et goût chocolat, c’est léger, plus radler que bière. 33 Cl Vanuxeem

Gaaa!!! What the eff is this mess? Brought back by a friend on a Eurotrip. Kinda excited about this, though I didn’t expect greatness - but the highly carbonated fake smelling and tasting tootsie roll with odd yeast and spice to boot. No no no.

.33l bottle form a Megga Bier store. I made lots of good choices that day but this was not one of them. Pours carbonated but goes flat immediately. Taste is heavy synthetic, hazelnut chocolate, and sugar. By far the worst beer I have ever tasted. Even my wife doesn't like it. We dumped the last half and drank a Belgian Triple instead. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle share with the wife. She can keep this. Hazy brown pour off white head. Nose is cheap chocolate and wheat. Taste much the same. Blah.

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 I’ve 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.
