madelfonatree (303) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Purchased 4/1/2015 from a new shipment and enjoyed 2/10/2016 in a stemless wine glass. Look - Murky dark brown. Lacing is not as tall as expected when chug a lugging out of the wine bottle. Medium to fine bubbled tan head. Smell - Maybe this is a little funky. Strawberry. Lightly sour. Milk. Chocolate. Nestle. Taste - Coconut. Chocolate. Pineapple. Strawberry. Coffee. Feel - Full feel. Puffy in the mouth but not overly carbonated. Not dry. Overall - Strawberry and coconut. Not expected. It is nearly a year old. Puffy feel and the closest to chocolate milk feel I’ve had.

pilsnerrogge (2712) - Finspång, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2016
Black with brown edges. Thick and creamy head. Smelling the beer is like sticking your nose into a box of chocolate truffles. Taste is more sweet chocolate truffles and a little bit of cherries leading to a dry, dark chocolate finish.
Dessert in a bottle.

Turtles (1210) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2016
750ml bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a creamy beige head, good lacing. Very sweet and gooey aroma, dark syrup, molasses and roasted nuts. The taste is like aroma, it is too sweet and sleazy and just tastes artificial.

Fredd_an (234) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2016
Nästan svart med mörkare små bubblor med lite större bubblor, fantastisk mjölkchoklad doft som är magisk! Smakrik, mellan medelfyllig till fyllig, riktig god mjölkchoklad smak som håller en lång men mild eftersmak ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gnoff (9283) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2016
Bottled 75 cl from Systembolaget Nordstan, special release, on January 22, 2016.
AT first when I see the paper package it just feels off, what the hell is going on here? Bottle once out of the package looks less LSD like though.
Black color, brown head. Cocoa, chocolate cake, perfume, sweet, sugary, fantastic chocolate dessert scent! Malty, sweet, cocoa, chocolate, cake, dessert taste, lovely! Smooth, rich, full mouthfeel, amazing! Low bitterness.
Smells and taste like my all time favourite chocolate cake desserts. Wow! I might have to get one more bottle, or five. Just wow.
We were 15 going on two bottles, many of my colleagues stated such things as "It is nice, but oh so sweet, I don’t want more than 10 cl of this" to which of course I responded that they were completely wrong and perhaps also insane, that I’d go and get more bottles and in a decently decadent way drink them by myself and just fully enjoy.
Fantastic for the sweet tooth I am, just keeps reminding me of mouth orgasm when pigging out on a chocolate cake. Did I even think about beer when drinking this? At first, then it was just liquid chocolate cake. If you don’t like sweet chocolate tasting beer, or if you don’t like rich chocolate cake, this beer is likely not for you, at least not to finish the bottle by yourself, if you’re like me though, get your hands on a few of these, lock yourself away, shut off your phone, pop one open, enjoy!

Daanminator (443) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2016
Mooie kleur en schuimkraag. Heerlijke chocolade aroma die het hele huis vult. Smaak is behoorlijk chocolade met een klein zuurtje op de tong.

Frodan (8) - Sigtuna, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2016 does not count
In swedish, Kolsvart öl, ljusbrun stor tjock gräddlik skumkrona. Lukt, choklad, mjölk. I en blindtest skullen jag troligen gissa på en pucko �� helt sjukt vad den luktat mjölkchoklad. Smak, Choklad, gräddmjölk, liiiiiiiten beska och en aningen sträv. Behöver jag nämna fyllig? Liten brännande känsla av alkohol i magen. Svår att recensera då jag bara tänker på pucko �� men satan vad god den är! �� ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ChrisO Tasting. Clear deep red - amber beer, good pale tan head. Nose of chocolate syrup! Palate is smooth and mildly dry, decent fine carbonation. Thin malts, light cream. Tangy chocolate sauce like on an Ice Cream Sundae. Chocolate ice cream. Smooth finish. So very many beers promise chocolate and don’t deliver. No such problems here, this is very chocolate. Nicely done.
